You need to help the poor more……
How does God do that?
He can read my mind.
After 4 years of joblessness, living on nothing, debilitating medical problems with no solutions, living each day as it comes, taking whatever money came my way, I finally looked forward to retirement.
I would finally have a steady, dependable income.
Last week, I finally felt some relief from the previous years of financial hardship, although I would be still working through the medical issues.
Finally, I thought, I have a few extra bucks coming in.
Then out of the blue, the Lord says to me,
That stopped me.
I saw wings on dollar bills flying away from me.
But inside my spirit, I knew it was ok.
It’s all about love.
I am thinking well, that just like Him, since He always asks the impossible.
I know that nothing is impossible with God.
And all things are possible through Christ who strengthens me.
Only He would ask someone who has been broke for 4 years, and about to live on a fixed income, to give to the poor.
The Lord’s logic is different from ours.
I am also sure he enjoyed the look on my face when he said that. He has a sense of humor too.
I think he misses the “Peter walk – on – water” experience, and wants to see more of it from us.
Jesus must have had fun that day, watching Peter walk on top of the water.
Maybe I should give more to the poor.
Maybe I will walk on water, like Peter did.
I think I will give to the poor more.
Now I feel better.
