I woke up this morning to a beautiful blue sky. Birds were singing, the sun was shining and the dog was pawing at the back door to go outside. I opened the door to let him do his business. As I closed the door to get back to my morning routine, I caught a glimpse of something out of the corner of my eye. It was my crème brulee torch, sitting outside next to the grill. We had grilled out the night before and we sometimes use the torch to light the grill. I subconsciously brushed it off and went about my morning, getting the kids cereal and milk, picking up messes that I had been too lazy to clean up the night before, and getting everyone ready to start the day. I had a slightly uneasy feeling as I went about my chores and was prompted to look back outside. When I did, I again saw the crème brulee torch, but this time, I felt strongly inspired to bring it inside right now instead of waiting until another time when it would be more convenient for me. I followed the prompting.
I went about the rest of my morning, completely forgetting about the situation with the torch. I loaded the kids up in the car and we went to the gym. It wasn’t until we were headed home from the gym that I realized why God saw fit to intervene in my life this morning. Seemingly out of nowhere, the heavens opened and the rains came down. The rains came down hard.
Oh the peace and joy I felt at knowing the God was looking out for me. I was so grateful that I had been in tune enough to feel His promptings this morning. I know it was due to the fact that I had not let contention into our home this morning so I was able to be in touch with the spirit. Now I won’t have to suffer from a soggy topped custardy treat. We will be blessed to have the indulgent crunch of a flame-caramelized sugar crust on our crème brulee. I will not have to worry about a torch that would have been ruined had I not been spiritually prepared to see the hand of the Lord in my daily life. And for that I am eternally grateful. #tendermercies
Maybe I should go back to church next fast Sunday so I can let my light shine and inspire others to be amazing, just like me, so that God will sprinkle just a bit more privilege down on their lives, just as He did mine. 😉
