Hi friend! I took a two week break from blogging and came back and had no idea what to blog. The book I am writting is almost done, one more chapter and I am so... well, stuck. But, I have a story to tell. It's about Sunday night. I have felt so lost and lonely lately, knowing that moving was God's plan for me and writing is God's plan for me, but feeling so hopeless at the moment. But, can I share a cool moment?
So, Sunday night, I have been going to two churches praying about which one I should make my church home. I got my answer. I went to The Belonging on Sunday and I have been every other Sunday. I have to work every other weekend and The Belonging has a 7pm service. Perfect!
So, I went in, rushing as always because my job is 19 minutes away. But, I sat down and this girl came and sat next to me. She told me her name, but I honestly couldn't hear because the music was so loud. (but, I asked her when the service was over and her name is Ruby! Hi Ruby, let's be friends.) Anyways, worship at this church always takes me back to summer camp days in high school because they are so powerful. So, we finish the last song and Ruby looks to me and starts speaking.
(I don't remember exactly what she said, so bare with me. Also, I was crying my eyes out because I couldn't help it. Always a mess...)
"I just have to tell you what I saw when you were worshipping. I know that it wasn't just a thing that I sat next to you, it was for a reason. And I feel like God wanted me to tell you this. I saw you like at the end of the rainbow. I saw you like on top. The God has promised you something, but things keep getting in the way like what people have said or what you have said, but God is working. And God wants to fulfill His promise to you. I just saw you at the end of the rainbow so happy."
I literally just thought she was in my brain at this moment. She had no clue what I am going through right now. And it's crazy.
Then the sermon. Okay. First, their was a guest preacher, Jordan Rubin. If you haven't heard of him, go right now, look him up. He shared his story of faith and reminded me how important it is to have faith. You have to have faith that God will do the thing that He wants to do through you. Imagine the thing. Don't imagine being hurt. Because, as Jordan Rubin said we put our faith in things like fear, not God.
Put your faith in God. Because, God will use you. He specializes in the broken things, because He knows how to put them back together.
So, I don't know what you're gong through right now, but I didn't ask for any of this on Sunday night. And you may not be asking for any crazy God moments either. But, God knows us, and He knows exactly what we need to find purpose again. Because He is always fighting for us. He is always looking for us. He is not finished with us yet. Never lose hope. Imagine yourself on top. Imagine yourself on the other side of the rainbow. Don't be scared. God will fulfill His promise to you.
"He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I trust." Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestlence, H eshall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your sheild and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the prestilence that walks in darkness, nor the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes you shall look, and see the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High your dwelling place. No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; for He shall give you His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon a lion and the cobra, the young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot. "Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliverhim and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him My salvation."
Thank you for reading this, and if somehow Ruby is reading this, thank you for being so bold to have Jesus speak through you. You have no idea how much I needed to hear those words.
