Jesus saw Nathanael coming to Him, and said of him, "Behold, an (BY)Israelite indeed, in whom there is no deceit!" Sounds kind of random, well not for me. The application is two fold - the first being that I have been reading through leviticus lately and found it pretty dry. Well as I have been reading I have looked for the aspects that can relate to me. I am a firm believer in the spiritual grafting in that we have received through Jesus so all things that talk about the Jews interest me, even if they may not apply. The second being that I have such a history of dishonesty. For her to get a verse about someone who is without deceit is very impactful. During the sharing time, she asked me to share and mentioned that she had only gotten that right before sharing so wow, to receive such a word in such a short time is so great!
Later in the day, during PT, my supervisor was talking to me about somethings and mentioned that I am a vital part of the work that is done at BPI. Well for the last few weeks I have kind considered the time there as unimportant because I was pretty playing second fiddle and just helping. To have that said I know is a word from the mouth of God.
So yeah, what a day it was for me. Now I have mens retreat this weekend and I am sure I will have a lot to say when I get back!
So I have 4 different stories that all combined into one last night, so I will start from the beginning. When I was younger I went through a few years of eye therapy to relieve strain on my eyes caused by weak eye muscles. Well lately I had been noticing some of the signals coming back around...sort of an unnecessary frustration right now.
Also during the last roughly 22 months, I have had three concussions and I am pretty sure that I had at least two others in my grade school days. I began to notice the effects of these injuries and over the last few days it kept coming up in my conversations.
And since I was in Junior High I have been pretty much a music junky with little regard for my hearing. As with the other things I could feel the effects of this but couldn't really do anything about it.
So now we fast forward to last night, haha. I was in a stinky mood...just very frustrated with things. I was showering after football and began to talk to Bryce about the stuff that was going on with me. Well I he had been around a few days earlier when I was talking about my head injuries and while he was praying he prayed for healing in my mind. It took a couple minutes but once I started really thinking again I could feel a distinct difference in my brain and in my eyes. I was kind of freakin out, just like so psyched! So Bryce and another one of the guys on the floor kept braining for me and as usually happens I went down. While I was laying on the ground out of nowhere I heard a huge pop in my ears and everything got way louder. Well 24 hours later I'm feeling just as good but know that there is a stinking load more to come for me!!!!!!
A few minutes after all the praying had kinda wrapped up the other guy, Matthew, came up and gave me a couple insights - one known already, and one unknown. During Fasting chapel I had gone over to him and prayed for him, that's pretty normal stuff here, well last night he told me that my hands were on fire as I praying for him. I definitely hadn't seen that coming but I wasn't surprised, he gives me a lot of sweet insights into stuff that I usually don't perceive. Well he went on to confirm a vision that I had a couple years back but that has been buzzing around up top for the last few weeks at least.
So yeah, God is really cool
He brings up things in His time and no it isn't coincidence
Even as annoyed as I was God got to me
