My Sleeping Beauty

Receiving blessings and miracles….

My Sleeping Beauty 3


Watching the hands of Gentle Ben hanging above her head, the sun shines on the bottom of her slippers as her eyes grow heavy. Her mind is a million miles from here. The living room looms as the world is in her hands. With her swept-back hair and bedroom eyes, she stretches out on the couch in blue sweats. I watch her in awe. The sun gleaming through the window caresses her smile as she dozes off again. So I stare at the love of my life. Once in a great while, God honors those heartfelt dreams.

Keeping the faith, our Father in heaven reciprocates with a genuine love you’ve spent your life looking for—a true blessing. Holding on to the dreams you prayed for long ago, God’s in the business of answering them. You see, patience is the secret.

So, you may ask, “How can I receive God’s blessings or a miracle?” First, be diligent in prayer and praise as God did all His miracles by the spoken Word. Prayer may be in the form of singing or reading and studying the Bible. Be sure it is positive though and avoid negative phrases.

Hebrews 11
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”

Second of all, live by God’s Word! It doesn’t mean that Satan will not try to interfere with your prayers, but our powerful Lord will ultimately win.

Romans 10:17
“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”

So maybe we wait, or maybe we become impatient and make mistakes. Regardless, God is forever faithful to us. I try to be on my best behavior–never wanting to bend the Ten Commandments. It’s a good practice to follow the laws God handed us.

So now soundly sleeping, it’s best I write and not wake her–my sleeping beauty. Watching as the sun shadows the tree tops, I clutch my heart for the love I just adore. If man ever had a second chance at life, it surely would be me as I stare at my gorgeous wife who sleeps so innocently. There’s not much to say as I think about the gift God gave me, except to always stay in prayer. I’ll never forget who made this moment happen. Our Father in heaven, gets all the honor and glory!

 

Touched By God

God is in the business of making miracles happen for certain believers.

Touched by God


According to scripture, we try to analyze messages from the apostles and philosophers, and Matthew, Luke, Mark, and John. Trying to comprehend, one sometimes ponders the age old question— is the Bible accurate? I’m no different. So, all we can do is believe and have faith. But beyond the written Word, what if God plants a messenger amongst you today–one that leads a somewhat ordinary life, to reveal that He very much exists… a person who has been inwardly touched by God? What would you think about that? Would you be scared or draw nearer to God? Are you skeptical of such a thing?

Let me recite Exodus 23: 20-22, a verse detailing those touched by God:

“See, I am sending my angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you into the place I have prepared.…Do not rebel against him; he will not forgive your rebellion, since my Name is in him. If you listen carefully to what he says and do all that I say, I will be an enemy to your enemies and will oppose those who oppose you.”

God comes, in these times, and anoints His powers to unlikely candidates who we would consider to be undeserving. He places knowledge within this person to guide people and to prepare all of us for the end times. In a way, this touched person can relate to self-pity and aggression and he/she can guide you back to God’s Words to restore honor and dignity, self-respect, graciousness, compassion and humility. Without someone to relay His messages, people will falter and fail, make foolish mistakes and give their lives over to dangerous and oppressive situations.

A messenger demonstrates, in a very large sense, the true reality of your life—that you were sent into the world to do something important. Everyone is born for a greater purpose. And the fact that people are not aware of this or cannot find it or are blind to it, cannot hear it, cannot feel it—that is the tragedy of the human family. That is the cause for corruption, conflict, hatred and all of the things that plague us today.

So, the final question now is, how can we spot a person touched by God? One of the primary ways, and confirmed in the Bible, was through miracles. Recently, I heard a story about a man who woke in song and discovered seven different kinds of wild birds singing religious tunes — not to him but with him. His life has now totally changed as birds were used in the Bible to relay messages. And what about Moses? He was a murderer but he did honor God and ended up prophesizing His name.

Looking at myself, a professed Christian, I was awakened in the middle of the night and told to write these kind of messages from God, to you. Those who know me personally, know I’m not a writer and I refuse to profess that I am. I have no formal college education and can’t type. But my wife and I built this blog, devoted to our Lord, in June 2017, and have now reached 850,000 friends and we’ve never spent a dime. I was born left-handed until I write God’s messages, and that is only with my right-hand! So you may say, “Ok, that’s not so strange.” But I have experienced numerous other miracles too.

Once, I prayed to get a vehOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAicle, with totally bald tires, towed safely through six states. I witnessed storm clouds totally part between the highway I was driving on. It was storming on each side of the road! And my list could go on and on…..

 

 

You see, my friends, God is in the business of making miracles happen for certain believers. He manifests Himself in others to deliver His messages to the world, to give you guidance. Being receptive to the fact that you may be touched, is the trick, but doubting it…. will become your loss, plain and simple. Just understand, foremost, that experiencing a true miracle in your life is the first sign of being chosen by God to do something spectacular in your life! Do not ignore it! Run with it and see where God takes you…. after all, what do you have to lose?
