I was amazed this weekend. My husband and I were blessed by a friend who handed my husband a sum of money and said take your family out. I had just uttered, honey I want to go out. It always amazes me how God can be so thoughtful and I am always grateful to his willing vessels. My husband is very frugal, but tries hard to keep me happy and so I just enjoy life as it comes. He has his moments of let’s have fun and then his careful moments of we must conserve, which is using wisdom. However, I am still negotiating that trip to Paris, that seemed to have adjusted to somewhere in the U.S.
Nonetheless, I have been very careful not to spend much in the last few years PREPARING AND PAYING OFF DEBTS which is the priority. It never ceases to amaze me how God still fulfills my every desire. We were standing in the restaurant getting ready to pay the tab and my husband who was upset about how the waitress basically snatched the menu voiced his concern. I suppose it was due to her being in a hurry to get her orders in. The kind manager gently replied “it’s on me, to my husband.” I then said “oh my a double blessing.”
I was shocked, but as I stood there a kind older lady with beautiful gray hair walked over to me and said “God said to tell you, you’re way more precious than the silver or gold and that he loves you very much.” I hugged her and smiled and said thank you. My husband however, was just in awe. He said “why does God always seem to send you messages?” I said “huh” he goes remember the lady who chased you down literally to give you a T.D. Jakes cd from the MEGAFEST in Augusta, Ga. (I was suppose to be there but we had to leave Atlanta.) He said ” he just always seems to have a message for you.” I thought okay.
As a college student I would walk into class and my professor would just stare at me and say you’re a child of the northern star….. and tell me I was chosen,” and act like no one else was in class. It just doesn’t phase me anymore to hear Gods goodness and love. I so appreciate it, I just don’t have enough emotion I suppose. It never occurred to me that people may not hear from God in this manner. However, I told my husband think about the many $100.00 tips you received as a tech and how you are always being given gifts for you and our family. God speaks to us all in different ways.
I remember a saint in church saying “God loves you” and I said okay and she said “no, he really loves you.” I thought okay he loves everybody and she responded “he loves everybody, but he has a special love for you.” I knew she was hearing from God of course because I never uttered a word of what I was thinking.
I share this to say, never take it for granted, as I seem to have. Sometimes God maybe sending us messages for us but also for those around us as well. My husband was so wowed, I know that love message was for him too. He simply could not get over the love of God. I have been hearing such special love messages my whole life but some people have not heard a word of God’s love. Realize that sharing a word may MEAN a change in someones grasp between life and death, for I have been down that road as well. If God puts it on your heart, be about your fathers business. It could truly save a life or even change a life today!
