If God Brings You….

A true story of God fulfilling His promises!

I sat in the pew and asked God how much faith must one believe in? The choir sang so beautiful as they echoed through the sanctuary but the prayers of a promise kept an empty seat next to me. I’m riddled by the sermon’s unanswered questions and haunted by God’s promises for my life. I meandered from the service, hoping next Sunday would be different.

Monday’s formalities were the same as every other day. My heart ached and throbbed with pain. Bright spots of the sun’s rays crept into my soul, but my spirit wasn’t buying the makeshift ceremonies. I asked my Father repeatedly, where is the love of my life You promised me from heaven? But there were no signs or indications of Him acknowledging my requests.

One busy day at work, I answered a phone call. I heard an angel’s voice on the end of the line. What if God is bringing me a heavenly gift? I’m too old for false illusions and toying with a younger enthusiast. I hung up after our brief encounter never thinking God was in control of it all. But no sooner does one chapter close than a new world opens with faith and some prayer. Never letting go of my deep convictions, I struggled in pursuit to find my promise. Little did I realize on the other end of the phone was an angel praying for her promises too. Was it a match made in heaven? Possibly, but I understood continuous prayers brought results.

Today, it’s 100 degrees outside, and I sit out in the breezy shade staring off into a glass-top table that wasn’t there a couple of years ago. My life drastically changed from the atmosphere of demons where promises were like the wind that filtered across my porch. God knew the winds would change course, and He anointed an angel to come into my life. Where would I be today if I stayed on my previous heading and ignored His signs? I would be looking at an old baron floor full of splinters.

If God brings you a miracle in life, don’t ignore it! Sunday sermons bring temporary relief and acknowledgment of hope, but it’s in YOU, God seeks to fulfill His mission. He challenges you to except them. For me, it was finding my wife, the love of my life, and no less my Editor. Together, we work for God, helping to build His empire.

There is no need to drop coins in a phone booth just to say hello to God. Faith and prayers always fulfill the promises He blesses upon us. Let it be said…. when you think the odds are against you, our great Protector shines His love. God, your insurer, and policymaker is our ultimate salvation of hope. May you be blessed.

Many things
You will have to
Tolerate in life;
And let them be
As they are;
Many things

Go with in life

Many things
You will have to
Accept in life

Sometimes you will
Have it

But many times
You will not;
Such is the
Nature of life.

It’s 4:10 AM, and the streetlight quickly turns green at a big intersection. Great – no waiting! I cross a six-lanes where traffic will soon take over. It’s clear sailing! I approach the next juncture, and again, the light immediately turns green as I approach it. God is with me, controlling things I cannot see down this long, dark road. Every light turns green as I’m heading out of town. They quietly whisper, ‘Safe travels! See you when you return.’ I thank God, for the green lights in life.

In the rearview mirror, it’s lonely and dreary, with an occasional red or yellow glowing in the dark, but they quickly fade away. The Lord works in mysterious ways, doesn’t he? Sometimes we wonder if we’re headed in the right direction. We must build trust in Jesus’ to lead us through life’s traffic by navigating turns of faith. But, we have to discern and be obedient to His signals. God loves us so much that He will give us warning signs, a yellow light. Perhaps impending disaster is drawing near. He wishes that no one perish nor succumb to Satan’s ploys and traps, and suffering major consequences.

Daylight is now approaching, and I’m greeted with smiles at every destination. God makes every single day worth smiling about in the grander scheme of things! I return to my domain where my angel awaits me. She’s my bride for life, you know? I just thank God she’s another green light in my life. So, I pick up a pen, listening to the Lord’s message, and I begin to write. It’s a terrific time to be alive! I reverently give thanks.

Are you steered by green lights, or do red or yellow precede your direction? It was once said, “If you don’t change your course, you will end up where you’re headed.” Those words resound in me as I look to God, always expecting the lights to be green. The guiding words of our Almighty Father is the only power that brings us comfort in daily life. I, just thank God for the green lights!
