Something to Say

What Just Happened?

Church. That's what happened. No. Actually it was God at church. Everything I have written here on this blog was brought up in the sermon today to the point where I had a change of heart about things. I am now interested in seeing what these 80+ small groups are because the pastor said there were people in the church who can relate to what I'm going through and who I could connect with in order to receive from God the blessings he has for me instead of being stuck with the "treats" the devil has for me. I already acknowledged that my thoughts were most likely from the devil. The pastor spoke of David in the bible. He summarized his entire life up to the point where the Amalakites had taken captive David's family. David was left with nothing! The pastor illustrated how important it was for David to link up with the one wounded Amalakite who showed up and told David where his family was. Had David killed him he would have missed the opportunity to fight for his family. There are people in our lives positioned by God to help us; we just have to be willing to do the work of getting to know them. He even went so far as to say we need to look towards each other (as in the ones in church) and not just look to the Pastor for help. Now didn't I just say I don't want to talk to anyone in church? Didn't I just say I only want to hear from God- not humans. I didn't see that one coming! There's more. God placed it on my heart to contact someone. I had tears in my eyes and compassion in my heart for this individual. I tried to ignore it. When I got out of church it was pressing me hard. And wouldn't you know it- I remembered the phone number to contact this one. I called and let the Spirit speak through me. Stunned as I was at the words coming out of my mouth and the tears that fell down my face, I delivered the message of compassion to this person's answering machine. When I hung up, I cried out to God "Why did you have me do that?" and in a few minutes all of the emotions subsided. Perfect peace was upon me. Not another thought about it until this point of writing. I may never know the outcome or result of that phone call, but it was without a doubt, from God. I myself would not have any inclination to call such individual. May the work of the Lord prosper, heal and save.
