Playing Bongos With God

Playing Bongos With God

Today was Wednesday Prayer Group. Any day spent with my prayer group is noteworthy but today was special. Special in a way that I just realized..

Cameron spoke a prayer out and said God is telling him to let us know we can ask for something we’ve held back on. Something that is more a want or gift and not our normal obedience. I smiled because I knew what I asked for once before. Although I knew he heard me I decided to take advantage of the moment again. I asked to sing. Sing majestically! I promised if I had a voice I would sing to him every chance.

I didn’t even think about how shallow it was.. I am asking my Father, creator to change something he made.. Wow!

After a long day and a night full of praise and worship, I came home tired. I kept hearing him say to take a shower.. “But I don’t want a shower” I said to God. Suddenly, I was convicted with being disobedient. That’s how God works. It’s like you’re in a conversation with yourself but you know that those aren’t your thoughts and your ideas..

I smiled so big again.. Yes Papa, you want to talk to me.

I got in the shower with my worship on. I waited and tried to see if I could sing. I know this is why he called me, right! I sang.. Nothing, a matter of fact I was probably more off-key than ever. I can play my imaginary bongos perfectly for him. I dropped to my knees and raised my hands up. I began to tap the water following down at me to the beat.. Yes! God spoke softly to me. He said “I made you perfectly and I love how you sing to me. I want you to understand that and just because you don’t wake up with a new voice doesn’t mean that I didn’t hear your petition. I will give you a stronger confidence in your voice.”

As these words were spoken to me ever so gently I felt ever tap on my imaginary bongos was tapping his hands. It was beautiful….

He took my hands and brought them together like in a prayer position. When I did this in the stream of the water it was the center of the shower head and there was no water. The water poured around the outside. He said “See that when you have your hands closed they are safe from the storm, now open your hands to my storm and receive all of my shelter”.

When I was obedient to God he gave me so much intimacy. He played bongos with me, he told me I was perfect the way he made me and he showed me how opening my hands will allow me to receive his love.

Thank you Lord Jesus, Papa

You ARE an awesome God and creator and I love you so much.

I surrender and seal this with an Autumn Amen..

In our prayer group last week or executive pastor joined us. Of course Miss. Denise wanted to pray over him first. I think it’s pretty cool when we can lay hands on our leaders and pray for them.

I find myself drawn to the ground kneeling with my hands on the persons feet as we pray on them. There is a strange comfort I feel. I don’t really understand it. The first time I saw this take place I remember it being overwhelmingly beautiful to me.

Anyway, the entire time they were praying all I could see was him holding an infant baby wrapped in a blue blanket. I haven’t been going to this church long enough to know everyone personally.

I got home and searched his FaceBook for any sign of a child. I tossed around the idea if I should share what I saw. It wasn’t a hint, it was a five-minute long picture that wouldn’t leave my mind.

I have decided to test the things I see even if it’s totally uncomfortable. Like when that person pops in your head and something nudges you to pray or call them. My Daddy and I have that connection, I get him in my head and he will never fail to call. We go weeks, even months without talking so when it happens I know it’s that connection on a different level.

I went for it and messaged him and told him I probably sound totally crazy but I was shown a picture of him holding a baby boy. He never messaged me back. I believe very deeply that he and his wife are going to find out they are pregnant soon. I will let you know!

Peace & Love my friends,
