Do yo ever feel at a loss of what to pray about, what to study about or how to get your mind in the right frame to hear God? There are so many things, so many areas of study and thoughts that it’s hard to figure out where to go. I think it’s hit and miss most of the time. But somehow God has a way of steering us in the right direction, or I’d like to think he does and that despite my inability to hear him at first, he directs me down the right path once I get started.
So, Lord, what have you got for me today?
I mean, do I start with a simple prayer, or a praise, or find a song to listen to, or read a Psalm or some other passage? Do I thank him for the new day and think of 10 things to be thankful for? That sounds like a really great idea… Do I tune in right away to hear a message? My mind always seems to wander, not able to get a grip on the “formula” that works best for me.
For today I’m thinking I need to hear a bit from Curry Blake and get my mind renewed in knowing who I am. I feel a bit distanced and disconnected to that part of your glorious gifts. So, off I go to find a short video – or watch a portion of one – from Brother Curry Blake, the 21st Century healing minister. Some think he’s a phoney, and I was a bit skeptical at first, but I tend to be a bit less skeptical than most – holding my skepticism in check until I’ve checked it out myself. I try to give people the benefit of the doubt and hear what they have to say first hand. I’ve never been one to jump to a conclusion based on what someone else has to say. Like when I moved back to Sequim, from Tacoma as a youngster starting 3rd grade. It was a new school with all new kids. I didn’t know anyone, except a couple neighbor boys I’d just met that summer, but you don’t hang out with boys in 3rd grade. Well, one girl befriended me, showed me where everything was and became my friend. Shortly there after, a group of “popular” girls approached me to tell me I shouldn’t be her friend because she was poor and she smelled. I told them that she was nice to me and until that changed she would be my friend. Well, that settled it, I was on the outs with the popular crowd all through school because “Melody” never was unkind to me. We remained best friends. So when I first heard of Curry, I decided, although the claims about him were pretty unbelievable, I’d listen to what he had to say and try not to pass judgment until I heard his entire spiel. After the first couple messages I wasn’t convinced, but I was beginning to see that he just might have something. And now I am convinced he is the real McCoy.
That’s it for today. Coming up will be my “formula” to get me on the right track each day. See you then, and thanks for joining me on my journey to hear God.
