Stories of a good God

This afternoon I walked into my local supermarket to purchase some nappies and shampoo (ie: mundane, everyday stuff) and was handed a basket by a woman.  I smiled at her and said “thank you” as I popped a loaf of bread into the basket and took the handles from her … I then asked how she was and she said “do you really want to know?” and I looked at her and said “you are feeling pretty “sh!! Aren’t you?” (I know, I used a swear word, sorry to those of you that do not condone such, but I believe that sometimes we need to relate to the world, without being worldly, and, in any case, sometimes there just, is not a better word).

She replied … “well I am still vertical” … and so I offered to pray for her …

I placed my hand on her upper arm, just below her shoulder and invited the Holy Spirit to come.  The anointing came strongly and swiftly.  I stopped and listened for what to pray and then prayed for “joy and peace”, she needed so much joy, and I said to my daughter to pray too, since she carries joy.  I said to Lyn “a wholeness is coming, there is an alignment coming, there is a misalignment, but an alignment is coming, a wholeness is on its way” and so I prayed and declared a release of wholeness and thanked God for the alignment with the Kingdom of Heaven and I again prayed for joy, for peace and for wholeness for this tired and weary woman called Lyn.

She asked me if I was “spiritual” and I replied that I was a Bible believing Christian.  I said I had learnt how to listen to God and pray what He told me to pray, and that such prayers worked … and I said to her that wholeness was coming and an alignment was coming for there had been a misalignment …

She responded that it was her nervous system … and then went on to say her husband had left her for another woman about a year ago, that it was the second time …

I could see she was shattered …

I started to walk away and felt to ask if she had forgiven him (not an easy question to ask) … and she replied so very honestly that she had not forgiven him … that she hated him, but loved him … I said I understood what she meant, and relayed a story of betrayal in my own life … not of such magnitude, but one that had taken me time none-the-less …

I said to her, with the forgiveness would come the wholeness … that she would very soon find all of a sudden that she could forgive him … I explained that forgiveness did not mean she had to trust him, like him, or agree with what he had done, but that the forgiveness would release her because the unforgiveness was hurting her …

She said she had been to a few psychics and they had all said he would come back within a year, that it was a year.  One had asked her whether she really want him back … Good question I thought.  I did not verbalise my thoughts, but instead said that true release would come through an acceptance of Jesus Christ and that it would happen … and as I walked away to collect my purchases I said I would give her my number if she wanted more prayer, for she had certainly felt the presence of God when I had prayed …

I collected and paid for the nappies and shampoo.  I gave her my number and wrote the name of a local church with the first names of the pastors that I knew …

I left saying “goodbye” and wished her the best and as I looked at her, I felt she actually looked a little better …perhaps it was my imagination, perhaps it was not just my imagination, regardless, she had received a taste of Heaven on Earth, I had prayed, she had felt the anointing, I had given her a cuddle, and reached out with my number … there was little else I could do in the natural, the rest is now up to God, and the rest will be good, because …

God is Good!
