One Step Away
What do you do
after the cashier rings up your order and then says,
I think 13.13 would have been better..
Well, I scared the cashier because
my eyes popped out of my head and then I
had to buy something else, to change the number.
Lo and behold they sold Jonesbars® (thanks Taylor),
so I grabbed one and my doom was changed.
I am not superstitious, but let me explain.
Right before this purchase
my husband and I were having a conversation about
the real "enemy" who opposes God,
who loves to get in the way
to distract us from standing firm in Truth,
to cause confusion,
to tempt us &
to feed us lies
Scripture came alive to me at that moment~
"Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." James 4:7
Do I immediately say no to temptation?
Do I immediately listen to who God tells me I am,
when the lies in my head tell me that I am not good enough?
How slowly I start to drift away from God,
and then before you know it
I wonder where God is,
while I think He is wondering where I am.
I walked out of the coffee place with my purchases
and a smile on my face
and a story to tell my husband who was waiting for me.
It didn't matter if I paid the 6.66 or not, as a number doesn't decide my fate,
but I had to look up to the One
who once again opened my eyes again to
"Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you..
Come near to God and He will come near to you." James 4:7-8
Form Ordinary to Extraordinary~
you are one step away.
