God. Text. Stop light.

It's been awhile since I have posted, I have been super busy. From working out to work, friends, and the ministry. Alicia and I went to church on Sunday and I have to say it was a Holy Spirit filled worship and sermon. Something that I needed to hear, something that I can't even begin to explain. I felt like I should have just gave Jesus a high five for the message he just allowed me to hear, funny thing is he already had everythingplanned. Sunday after church Alicia and I ran to Wal Mart and Target we usually go to Wal Mart and grocery shop for the week but she went Saturday while I hung with some other friends. We have recently became addicted to Glee, so while at Target I bought 2 Glee CDS. I of coursr popped them in first thing when I got in the car and haven't thought twice about it. I love the music and everything that goes along with it, but the past 2 days I have felt convicted of what I am listening to. Now, there is nothing wrong with the music it isn't vulgar or crude but it is for sure not "Jesus loves me." While I drive to work I take some extra time to Worship and talk with Jesus...of course I haven't been because I have been jamming Glee. I decided this morning to turn it back on to my normal radio station, they spoke of nothing inparticular but at the end of my drive I had a smile on my face and just that "spirit." This work week has been something different for me, I am now an actual employee not just someone in training... aka I have more responsibility. I had to close the branch for the first time which was pretty stressful for some reason. I am so ready for this weekend I can't hardly stand it!! (Spending some time with my mom, nieces, friends, ect. some of my most most most favorite people in the world.) I was ready to go home, by the time I got in my car I had tears bubbling up in my eyes. It had just been one of those days, I was ready to go home. On my way home I was praying for some peace and comfort. One of the sentences that came out of my mouth was "Lord, I know you don't have anything to prove to me, I know you are here. But send me something...a song, anything to lift my spirits." Listen, I am not saying 5 minutes later I am talking seconds later my phone goes off. It was a sweet sweet friend from back home. The text simply said "Oh Sherry." Now, while most of you are thinking okay????? We use to sing that song when we worked together and we would laugh and laugh. (much more to the story than that but for the sake of time that is the jist.) I immediatley started grinning from ear to ear. All I could do was sit there it total awe, shock, thankfulness, and amazement. I thanked God over and over. I felt like he was saying..."Anything else my child?"  I don't know if you guys find this a big deal but I couldnt help but want to jump around and say WOW!! You get even more awesome every day!! Which he already knows! :) I of course replied to my friend and told how what just happened she inturn told me she was having a day as well, thought of me and that song and had a laugh. God is good isn't he??

Welp, there ya have it.

God is great.
