I went to the grocery store for fruit and came out inspired. It will all make sense in a moment.
I have been on this Positivity Fast. Each day I have been speaking proclamations out loud, on Twitter and Facebook. Yet I have been having a tough little week.
I come out of the house one day and my tire is flat. I go to have it fix and the guys tells me I need a wheel alignment and all new tires, yada, yada, yada. If you have been keeping up with my blog, then you know my money has been acting funny. LOL Anyway the guy fixes the tire and hands me my keys and says, "No charge." Great.
Over the holiday weekend, I spent Sunday just chillaxing at the house. I am watching Joel Olsteen and he is saying we have to speak favor into our lives. He quotes a scripture Psalms 5:12, the same scripture I had been meditating on all week. I am really feeling great, like, wow Lord this is confirmation.
I walk out of the house Tuesday to see my trunk wide open. I walk around the side of my car to see my passenger side window had been smashed in. I just stared at it for a few minutes, thinking this can not be my car.
So, I go through the motions security, police, glass repair, crying. Yes, I can be a cry baby sometimes.
So I figure things have to get better, after all, I am speaking Favor Into My Future, which was Joel Olsteen's text that Sunday.
The next day, I go to my car after the glass repair guy has left and try to start it. . .the battery was DEAD. I just started rebuking the devil old skool style. I was/am fed up. I believe the word of God. Funny thing, I had recently gone to my workout facility and the guy at the desk was telling me about these service my complex provided that I was unaware of. I went to pick up a flyer. It tuns out a service they provide is battery jumping. . .FOR FREE! I am like okay God, I see what You are up to.
So today, I go to the grocery store and the weather was fine. I come out and its a down pour. Something tells me don't worry about. So I go to my car and as I am walking the rain is letting up. I sit in my car and through my window sunshine is pouring in. I look to my opposite side and there shining the full length of the sky was a beautiful rainbow. I remembered from my childhood Sunday school classes that a rainbow was the sign God gave Moses after the earth was destroyed by a flood.
That's how my life has been feeling lately. Like I am trying hard to keep my head above water. Now I feel better, like God is reminding me to hang on to his promises, because they are sure and everlasting.
