In my early days of salvation, one of my favorite songs was a song by Kirk Franklin – The Storm is Over now – https://youtu.be/awtPSl6zFNU?list=PLCE00BF3507C2FEC2 Just when I thought the storm was over, it wasn’t long before I found myself back in not a new storm but back in an “old” storm! Years later I found myself out of that storm and lived in the spirit of gratitude for a long time. Every Friday night I would do my laundry and prepare dinner. After my laundry I would put away all my clothes and iron everything that required ironing. During this process I would listen to Gospel music. Like clockwork I would do the exact same thing for about a year. I found that later on when life was doing that which it is designed to do began to wear me down, I would remember the peace I experienced while during my Friday night program. One day after I veered away from my ritual – (you see the cares of this world had infiltrated my peaceful cocoon) I found myself in place where my spirit was disturbed and my feathers had been definitely ruffled. I remembered the ritual of the laundry I thought to myself okay I’ll go do some laundry and get back to that peaceful place. However, I didn’t have any laundry to do, so I did the next best thing, I put on the music, I put up the ironing board and just began to iron anything and sure enough God showed up!!! Years later I was telling this story to a friend his name was Brother Rob, he said, sometimes you have to be in that place where He can find you!!!
Do whatever it takes to find Him and He’ll find you…..
