I have a “relationship” with someone from a distance and it’s the strangest thing. It won’t grow or get any closer unless I do something.
Sometimes I just have to shake my head in utter amazement. To me the solution is very simple, and I think it could might be to that person as well, however they have made a choice to keep it the way it is. So what do you do in a case like that? I do nothing. It’s just that simple. I’ve done enough and there is nothing else I can do.
This is not me rejecting the person either. It’s me realizing that if someone wants you in their life, they will make the effort to allow you in. And it’s not about their being let in on their terms alone.
We don’t have to live in the same city to be friends. All of my close friends live out-of-state. It’s about making the decision to be in each others lives. Period case closed.
If you want someone closer to you, reach out to them via phone, email, text or in person. Then go from there. Just you. It’s just the simple.
So I was on my way to the library because I wanted to get some books on minerals and health and I decided to get on the computer for a while and a distinguished older caucasian gentleman was one computer over and he says that he thinks he recognizes me from somewhere. Well I knew it was a pick-up line, but honestly I was a little shocked.
I’ve been hard on myself lately, because I don’t feel I am up to par as far as keeping myself together. Beauty is expensive and you need money to keep yourself up and I don’t have a lot of extra money for what I like to do. I can’t remember when I could afford a manicure and pedicure and I really need my eyebrows done! lol
So the gentleman eventually get’s around to asking me if I would like to have a cup of coffee. So I told him I would probably be at the library for a while and then he asked me for my number. Well I decided I would take his and he immediately said “oh, you are not going to call me”. I smiled and told him that I might. lol He proceeded to say that he hoped that I would.
He told me that he drove by me as I was walking up the path toward the library. (You never know who is watching). Well if I can still garner attention when I am not even on my A game, I guess there is still some hope. lol Not very spiritual but I thought I would share that for a little chuckle.
I mentioned that I was taking in a tenant and I did. Originally it was a young couple, but then the girl backed out and it kind of worked out for the best because I really couldn’t allow them to co-habitat without being married.
After the young man decided to move in without her, I didn’t really feel the need to say anything because the Lord worked it out. Then out of the blue, he decides he cannot live without this young lady and I was forced to discuss the issue. Since he professes Christianity, he understood, but was not happy.
Talking with this young man has been an eye-opening experience. Sometimes as Christians we are in our little Christian world and we don’t realize what is going on out there other than when we watch the evening news.
It’s kind of sad how the young people are today. They think nothing of living together, in fact it’s the norm. They jump from one sexual relationship to another and I keep hearing about having children, but no one mentions marriage. It’s been an eye-opening experience.
I had a chance to share my faith and share with him how God has a better life for him, but he needs to live the way that God intended. He understands it, but still wants to do what he wants to do.
Since it’s my home, I make the rules and so for now, it will be just him. They may switch and she may move with me and he may move out. It doesn’t matter. They are good kids, but they won’t be living together under my roof.
New International Version (NIV)
2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
It’s been a few days since I posted, and much has changed. I have a tenant now and it seems to be working out well. He is a respectable young man and he is very helpful. Today he was doing yard work and found an adder was living in my yard, just like I dreamed and shared a while back. He said it was a huge big black snake. Yipes!! (https://apropheticwalk.wordpress.com/2012/08/15/the-adder/)
I am so grateful I did not try to clean up what was in the yard. I had a shed in the yard and a man broke it down and sold it and the snake was living in the pile of leaves that was left. It’s so interesting and a prophetic sign.
In my dream I also saw a snake in front of a door that I was trying to enter and I went back home. Thank God I did because that too is manifesting. I was reading some things recently and realized that none of it was true. Thank God for His warning.
I have an acquaintance who had also received those same snake dreams, but God told me, she will refuse to heed the warnings. It’s okay, because God showed me, she must walk that path and she will get bitten. You see it’s the nature of a snake to bite you and that will not change. And when God warns us that a situation has not changed, we have to believe God, even if it seems inviting in the beginning. For now, I am getting out of harms way and staying there until true deliverance comes.
I had to chuckle the other day because that same acquaintance did something that made me realize this is a “perfect storm”. You see I know this person very well and they are not to be toyed with. It may seem they can be, but they can’t.
God is going to use this situation to put the final nail in the coffin. It’s not going to be pretty. Meanwhile, I am just going to get my popcorn out and WATCH!
Always heed God’s warning. They are for your protection. An adder is an adder!
New International Version (NIV)
3 For the revelation awaits an appointed time;
it speaks of the end
and will not prove false.
Though it linger, wait for it;
it[a] will certainly come
and will not delay.
Sometimes God answers your prayer in a different way than you expected. I never thought I would take in a tenant, but I have done just that.I know it’s an answer to my prayers. I am also going to be taking care or a little toddler. Not exactly what I expected, but God knows.
I wonder when God’s vision is going to come to pass. I see why God did not allow me to move. I would end up hurt, I know. I just read some things that let me know that would be the case, so God is protecting me.
I am one that believes that people should go for what they WANT. This is for someone. GO FOR IT! You have to see if what you think is so perfect, is actually what you think it is. Meanwhile, I will just prepare and wait. And maybe I won’t. And life goes on. 🙂
I recently had four dreams back to back and from experience, when I dream something is up.
My dreams all started in 1998, when I was at a prophetic meeting. Up until that time I had dreams that didn’t mean anything, however after attending that meeting, the minister prayed that people would begin to have dreams and visions and that is exactly what happened. Within days, I started having very clear accurate dreams and it had been like that ever since. The only difference is now, my dreams are not always so obvious. Sometimes they need interpretation, but eventually the meaning is made known.
That brings me to my four dreams. The first one was about the minister who used to be at my church who was interested in me. I won’t go into the details, but God seems to want to reiterate to me that he is NOT the one for me. In fact my four dreams were just confirming what a prophetess shared with me last Christmas. She shared with me that there was one man watching me, but another was coming.
So the other three dreams were all about that man. The dreams were clear and I know God is speaking and I remember an evangelist once told me that when they come in three’s it means it’s going to happen soon.
I don’t know why, but I keep thinking something negative is going to happen before my dreams come to pass. I’m not sure, but whatever the case, God told me how it all ends, so no matter what happens, I have to trust Him.
