How can I go to bed without sharing this with you guys!!!! I can’t!!!
You see, I remember the first day I went to the Pentecostal church. My best friend invited me and I had a dinner appointment with my boyfriend (who is my husband now). And my friend begged me to go with her. I said to her, “Okay, I
don’t think my clothes are appropriate for your church. What if they say – “We don’t allow her to come
in with a mini-skirt?” She laughed hysterically and said, “Nobody will say that to you. Just come with me.”
So, I went with her. The church was packed with people and everybody was singing. The usher couldn’t find us two seats. So we had to sit at separate seats (I guess that was God’s plan because with my constant joke, I might not listen, lol). I took my seat but since everybody was standing and singing, I stood up.
Then something happened to me. That is the only way
I can express it. Something told me that the thing I found in that church was the thing I was looking for. And before I knew it, my tears found their way on my cheeks and directly went to my neck. No tissue paper was good enough to take care of them. I was very embarrassed. With mini-skirt, high shoes, God knows how my hair style was and with a fashionable purse and large ear-rings in the middle of people who were closing their eyes and worshiping God. Mind you! I cried like
a baby. The more I tried to control myself, the more my tears were gashing out of my eyes.
By this time, people next to me started to pitch in their tissue papers.
The fact that my friend was sitting far away from me kind of gave me confidence to cry as much as I wanted to but nothing seemed to be enough.
Wow, and guess what, similar thing after how many years, my gosh, happened to me few hours ago
Do you know what I happened to me? Well, I watched “God’s not Dead” movie which came out yesterday in all movie theaters.
My hubby is in the middle of programming something and he is literally sleeping and eating with his laptop. The kids and I wanted to give him free time. So we went out to watch a movie. First, we wanted to watch “Noah”; then we said; “The Son of God” but for some reason the trailer didn’t attract me; especially the Son of God. Well, the actor who is playing Jesus, kissed Lazarus to raise him from the dead (I don’t know if I made a mistake or something). So, I’m like, no, I don’t want them to take away that precious story from my heart, a story where Jesus called Lazarus out of the tomb. So, I said, “Let’s forget everything and let’s go and watch God’s not Dead” and we agreed and went in.
Little did we know that the Holy Spirit was waiting for us in the Movie Theater!!! Guys, I’m telling you, that was my experience. Ten minutes into the movie, I wanted to cry but didn’t want to cry. I held my tears back for a long time so that my little one wouldn’t worry about his poor mama. But I couldn’t hold it any longer. The love of Christ, I felt like went deep into my bones. I cried. I started worshiping God. Some people started clapping. I clapped with them but I thought that was not enough. I cried.
I made a vow with Christ. Yes, I did and I will keep it till I die, may the LORD help me!!! I cried and prayed!!! I was praying to my kids so that they would be “UNDONE” by the love Christ. I was crying and laughing at the same time. Oh, I said to God, “I love You, LORD” but that was not enough. When the movie ended, I didn’t know that three of my kids were also drenched with the Spirit. My daughter and I started wiping our eyes. My boys were checking each other’s eyes to see who was the man!!!
We got in the car and felt like we were heading to heaven.
Oh, how I wish I could tell you exactly how I felt!!!! But I can’t!!!
You know what I am looking forward to? Not only heaven but to go to heaven and use the heavenly words to express the love of God in full measure!!! I crave that! To say something about Christ and feel satisfied.
No word can express Him or His love!!!!
Why am I telling you this? To say this: “MAKE SURE YOU WATCH THIS MOVIE!!!!” God’s Not Dead!!!
Please guys, let’s watch every movie made for the cause of Christ. Let’s support these courageous movie makers who risk it all!!!
Wow, the message was simple but goes deep!!!! Powerful!!! It saves more lives than we ever think.
Okay, I better go now.
Have a good night,
In Him, Missy.
