To Believe or Not to Believe..

foolis that the question?

We should always trust God, no matter what the circumstance. He knows all and sees all, so when he tells us something we must trust.

But trusting people is a whole different matter. I think it all boils down to patterns of behavior. If someone asks you to go out to dinner on Friday, but they keep calling and cancelling and they did that 3-4 times before you were supposed to meet, you would probably say “listen, just forget it”.

And then if they ask you a month later to meet them for dinner, the first question out of your mouth would be “are going to cancel the dinner date again?” Then if they said no, you may give them the benefit of the doubt and say yes. But if it happened again, few of us would give them another chance because you are seeing a pattern in their behavior.

So what would make you give them another chance? Well I know for me something would have to be RADICALLY different. They couldn’t just ask me a question. The person would probably have to show up and pick me up and take me right to the restaurant, when they asked me. lol

What’s that saying…“fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me”. I want to say “fool me multiple times, and I’m just a fool”.

When people keep making a fool out of you, you learn from it and move on. You forgive, but the only way to believe them the next time is if something is radically different. And if you don’t see that..keep moving along.

An Unexpected Shift?

I get home from church early on Sunday’s because I attend the 9am service at my church, but today was a very odd day. When I arrived at church I began to observe how a lot of the women were dressed and got so grieved for some reason. It’s not like I haven’t noticed it before.

I understand that you cannot legislate how people dress, but some of these women have been in the church for a while and you would think they should know better, but I guess it’s all about teaching. But there is a strong seductive spirit in the church and I suspect that there is something that is about to happen that is going to open up the floodgates even more.

I then I noticed something else, which I won’t detail, but I suspect my divorced Pastor may be moving toward remarrying. I can’t explain it, but while I’ve been so happy with my church, today, I felt grieved through the entire service.

I honestly felt like I should stop going and not look back. It’s so strange. And then there was a minister’s wife who contacted me on this site a few weeks ago and honestly I felt it was significant. Almost like I should connect with them, but he doesn’t have a physical building as far as I know. I’m not sure, but I am shocked by what I sense. But it feels like it could be a prophetic shift. This is blowing my mind, but I need to be exactly where God wants me to be and not under anything that is not of him.

Sometimes God will shift us suddenly. It’s almost like I felt the connection to this ministry break. I’ll talk to a few of my “go to” people and see what they sense. But in my mind, I am gone.

His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”
