I went to a neighborhood restuarant, and it is really really in the hood, for lunch. I wanted some fish and they sale fish and chicken the food is really good. The place is always crowded with alot of random ghetto people. When I pulled up, I saw 2 men washing the windows and no one else in the shop. I thought to myself I am not going to order anything if the people cleaning the windows are going to cook my food.
So the first man looked at me strange and i walked over to the counter he eventually walked up behind me and said what would you like, I said I am looking at the menu. He said come here and let me help you. I said just a minute. Then I saw a cook in the back so I begin to tell him my order. He had an accent and after looking at him, determined he was ethopian. I said how long will my order take he said about 10 minutes. I said ok i am going to walk over to the beauty supply next door and I will be back. He said ok.
I came back, no other customers were there and my food was sitting on the bar where I could see it but not get it. so the ethopian rushed up and went behind the counter, grabed a cup and filled it with water. the cook went in the back and the ethopian slowly dranked his cup of water. finally i said is that my order, he said yes still moving slow. finally he said what would you like to drink. i said i didnt order anything to drink. he said it's on me.
he begin to pour up my drink and said Jesus brought you here!
He wants you to know that he is in control and that there is nothing that you can do to change the way he feels about you. He loves you NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO. he begin to tell me all about Jesus. so then he says can i just say a little prayer for you. I was shocked because i always thought of them as muslims!
The little ethopian began praying strong SPIRITUAL WARFARE prayers for me! WOW. I was amazed at the prayers that came from him.

I would seek God, and I would place my cause before God
Is anything too difficult for the LORD?-Commit your way to the LORD, trust also in Him, and He will do it.--Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God --Casting all your anxiety upon Him, because He cares for you.
Hezekiah took the letter from the hand of the messengers and read it, and he went up to the house of the LORD and spread it out before the LORD. And Hezekiah prayed to the LORD
It will also come to pass that before they call, I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear.--The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.
I love the LORD, because He hears My voice and my supplications. Because He has inclined His ear to me, therefore I shall call upon Him as long as I live.

Love Billy Graham's ministry...he preached back in the day...
This is a question not a thought but....
If a gospel artist, Fred Hammond, makes a song that does not talk about Jesus but the love for his wife, does that make his song a gospel song or a secular song?
Do any of you guys ever get really strong, intuitive feelings before something big happens?
I'm sorry delitefulmane... I wasn't too clear was I?
He's obeying scripture by singing a love song to his wife. He's demonstrating scripture by loving her and making sure she feels loved and secure as his wife.
To be honest, too many songs and those who sing them, speak God and/or Jesus and yet God is no where to be found in their hearts.
I took a break from school because of my mental illness. And have experienced much since being home. I know I don't have too many people in my life that love me, but I'm grateful that my parents love me and support me.
Have you ever felt that God is about to open doors. Like you hear the lock literally unlocking; although the door hasn't open yet? I feel opportunities are literally coming my way (soon) and it's such an overwhelming feeling. Almost feel like shouting! Ok, back to my compose self.
Offences are river cloggers.
If you want the Spirit of God to move in and through you, like rivers of living waters, stop being offended everytime someone says things about you.
Who cares that people are racists and say hateful words...if you know who you are and who GOD says you are (His child...you are beautifully and wonderfully made...a daughter of The King!) then let those words fall off your shoulders...brush them off, keep your head held high and keep it moving. You will fare better when you do.
