Finding Confirmation

Finding Confirmation

 

       As I was driving to pick up my granddaughter from school I was listening to the radio,

I was listening to the testimony of a man--

who said he was a pastor of a church—He was telling a story about when he was a young Christian.

       He was awakened in the middle of the night by God-- telling him to go to his lifeguard tower.

You see, He was a lifeguard at a beach in Florida and God was telling him to go to work.

He rolled back over-- thinking he would go in the morning. Just as he was starting to go back to sleep he heard God say, “go to the lifeguard tower “now””.

So he got out of bed and drove down to the beach--

Walked across the sand to his lifeguard tower--

       And as he rounded the corner of the lifeguard stand he saw a young man sitting on the tower.

       “Hey, what are you doing up there?”

       The young man answered, “I am homeless and I have nowhere to go. I am hungry and cold.”

       Being a good Christian he started telling the homeless man about Jesus.

After a period of time, they descended from the tower back onto the sand.

The young Christian reached into his pocket pulled out a couple dollars to give to the young man for food.

       “I thought you said you were a Christian?”

       “I am…”

       “Then why not take me home. I’m cold, I’m hungry and I could use a shower.”

       After thinking about it for a second, he realized the young man was right. He had just spent the last hour or so telling him about God, the least he could do was show him how God works.

       “Okay, I will take you home.”

       Just as he turned to leave, a couple more young men stepped out of the darkness.

       “These are my friends and I would like them to come with us.”

       “I can’t do that. I offered to take you home.”

       “Why not? You just told me you were a Christian and that God loves us all.”

       The young Christian thought about it for a second and said, “Come on, you’re welcome to come to my home.”

       As he was driving home he realized-- that his mother was going to be quite upset-- that he was coming home with three strangers in the middle of the night.

Just as they sat down at the table-- his mother came into the kitchen-- opened the refrigerator and pulled out some spaghetti. Once the food was warmed she placed the plates filled with food in front of them and turned and went back to bed without saying a word.

“Wow, I thought for sure that your mom was going to kick us out--. This is really nice. You truly are a Christian family.”

       After they finished their meal, the young Christian let them take a shower and gave them some clean clothes. He made beds for them to sleep and went back to bed himself. Early the next morning he had to be to work. They all got up and he drove back down to the beach.

       They thanked him and went on their way. He went into the lifeguard station to prepare for the day. He had a locker in which he kept his personal belongings.

The locker was always locked—

He opened the locker and there were the clothes he had given the young men, folded neatly in a pile in the bottom of his locker.

 “Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” Hebrews 13:2

       When I heard the pastor tell this story-- I knew it was another opportunity to share with my granddaughter-- while driving her home after school. I like to tell her stories so that she doesn’t think I’m preaching to her.

       When we arrived at my grandaughter’s house, we sat in the driveway as I finished the story.

When I was done she said, “That is so cool. Thank you, love you Mimi.” And got out of the car.

A couple days later I was talking with God and explaining to him that I had been listening to a prophetess on the internet-- who seemed to be pretty flamboyant and was talking about how God had told her to look into the sky--

into the clouds for the angelic cloud formations. 

She further explained, that somewhere in these clusters was always a heart-- for confirmation that they had been sent by God.

After listening to her, I felt I needed to confirm that this woman is the real deal. So, early in the morning while I was praying, I asked God to let me know if I could believe what this woman was saying.

That afternoon, I was driving along the coast to my dad’s doctor’s appointment, the cloud cover was thick with the sun just peeking through, I felt the urge to take a picture with my cell phone as I sat waiting at a light.

Later that day, I looked at the picture I had taken and the sun was in the perfect shape of a heart. (Show Picture)

I believe this picture of the sun is my confirmation from God and another opportunity to talk to my granddaughter and to show her the picture.

Heavenly angels and clouds are often mentioned together in the bible and at Jesus' ascension into heaven, clouds were involved: Acts 1: 9-11

It seems that these are clouds of angels who escort Jesus from place to place:

I had wished that I had something more to show along with the picture of the sun while giving my speech.

So, I have asked God for a second confirmation as stated in the bible

"Every matter must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses."

To be continued….        

 

To Be Continued happened quicker than I thought. It just so happens that I watched this same prophetess describe how peacock feathers surround the Fathers throne and that he loves peacock feathers. I thought that sounds pretty outlandish.

She also mentioned that she tells God to instruct her as he would an eight year old so that she can understand.

I remember walking up the stairs and asking God to instruct me as he would an 8 year old so that I may understand.

 As I am editing this speech my husband brings in the mail. I open the first piece of mail and it contains a peacock feather--

Now I can say:      to be continued….
