Someone I know, our relationship is more than any “ship”I would ever hope to define and Webster doesn’t even come close. She’s my “baby mama” or one of them but don’t even try to figure that out, lol.
Well, anywho, my buddy became unemployed; not fired but contract ended and thus began her journey through Whyville. She was’t sad but I noted a bit of discouragement, particularly after an interview did not go as She had planned. Having passed through Whyville a few times, I listened and offered her an umbrella that had recently been handed to me.
I was Netflix(ing) and chilling (not in the new age sense, I suppose) and I came across #deathtoselfie. The title alone, compelled me to push select and thus the handing of the umbrella commenced.
I watched #deathtoselfie onNetflix but did anything but chill. I so enjoyed this sermon because for the first time, I had an answer to a question that I’d long posed aloud to Abba…what did it mean when biblical scholars wrote and God said “I AM the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob.” Well, Pastor Furtick surely was a light unto my path this day because I had such an A-HAAA moment that I chuckle now, Pastor Furtick broke it down and as I interpreted it, when God was using this to get people to see ALL the sides of him and the way he can do and will do things and the types of people he covers based on the characteristics and actions of these 3 men. When I emerged from my prayer closet, after having watched and listening to Pastor Furtick, I realized that not only is he the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, he is the God of me. Now, I’m not too clear on Isaac but I get Abraham and thanks to Pastor Furtick, I got Jacob.
I thought about my friend and myself and our respective situations and was so excited for myself when I realized and received the message from Pastor Furtick. Now, I’d always known that God doesn’t specialize in perfect people but there was/is something about this explanation that resonated with me. The God of Jacob…the God of liars, cheats, thieves. The God of the disappointed, lost, etc. you get the drift and when I got it, I felt the umbrella (covering) open up. See, if you want to know how good something is, it’s all about word of mouth. You have to get the right person (marketing) to make yourself known to the masses.
I’m still excited about this new discovery and sent my friend a text to let her know that not just God, but the God of Jacob was and is with her. I have several names I call her but she knows who she is, you, may call her Jacob.
Love you TeeHee!!
What ails ya!!
