David’s Daily: 6/26/18

Yesterday morning, as I pulled into the parking lot at my job, I took a few seconds to admire the sun shimmering from behind a few clouds. That glow seemed quite heavenly to me. I was so intrigued that I had to capture that celestial glow on camera. Sights like this remind me time and time again that God does exist, and that He isn’t as far away as we think.

Two weeks ago, I had the rest of a Saturday to myself. There was nothing going on at church that I had to be a part of, so I decided to go to my chill spot, which is Rotary Park, located by the Cumberland River.

As I was turning back around to head down the other trail near the river, I was stopped by a man and woman sitting at one of the tables. At their table sat two signs which read “Free water” and “Free Prayer”. I thought about all the times my church stood on corners or were passing out literature, so I felt compelled to stop.

I forget their names, but the couple was very nice. We talked a little bit about where we’re from, Clarksville, and about our beliefs. They offered me a bottle of water, which I truly needed in that 90 degree heat, and asked if they could pray for me for anything.

I asked prayer for a person going through a bit of a rough time. I won’t say who, but I will say that sometimes it’s hard to let people go, even those who have been in your life for what seems like a lifetime. I truly hope this individual leans toward Christ during their tribulations, because what they are going through is something you can’t possibly face alone. Sometimes we just have to let Him in so He can give us peace and perseverance

On June 5, I went to a viewing at a funeral home for a person I went to school with. I will forever hate seeing dead bodies; empty shells of what is no long there. The breath of life removed. I don’t even like walking past the morgue with the door open at my job. But I was willing to pay my respects to a man who I believe was a good spirited individual. I truly applaud this individual’s mother for having the strength to deal with losing her son. I tried to not to cry when I spoke briefly with her as we looked at her son in the coffin, but I couldn’t do it. It’s just crazy to know how short life is and how quick life can be taken away.

Thursday, I updated my relationship status. Keep in mind I haven’t updated it seriously in about six years. Also, when you combine that with my Facebook friends and my new girlfriend’s Facebook friends, people blew up my phone with notifications. I won’t go into too much detail because it’s early, but I am thankful for a new relationship with someone who loves the Lord as much as I do.

Last Saturday afternoon, I was reading Acts 2. It’s been a while since I read that particular passage on my own. There are a few things I took from reading this particular chapter.

First, how the The Holy Spirit enabled the disciples to speak in many other tongues. It means people of different backgrounds were able to hear the message in their own languages. That must have truly intrigued the multitudes, wondering how they were each able to understand, despite being from different countries.

Second, I can’t believe the number of people who were baptized after Peter’s sermon and became Christians. About 3,000! How often do you see that many or close to that many souls reborn again nowadays, especially in American society? Not to diss on America, but I personally think that there are many more believers in other countries than there are in the states. I think the reason that is is because we are spoiled and have more distractions. Things that will take away our attention from Christ. Things that will make us think we’re better off without him. Please don’t stone me. Just my opinion.

Third, I believe the Holy Spirit is not something that just comes to you once. It’s ongoing. It influences you in your daily life: your words, your actions, your character.

Thank you for reading. God Bless and have a good day.

I was born on January 31, 1992. I graduated from Austin Peay State University in December 2015 with a B.S. My major was Communications, with a concentration in Print & Web Journalism. My minor was English, with a concentration in Creative Writing. Writing is my passion. I’m a book lover. I prefer to to be called a Booklion rather than a bookworm. Why- lions are mightier.
My first love is Jesus Christ. I was raised in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. No we are not a cult. We are Christians who worship on Saturday.
I have been stuttering since I was four, but through Christ I have persevered through it and will continue to do so. I’m not thing with Him.
Singing is another passion of mine. God blessed with me with the gift of song, which I am grateful for.
