While other kids were wearing cowboy hats and cowboy boots, I was wearing Indian headbands with feathers. I was fascinated by the Indian ways; their approach to life and how they sent "smoke signals" to communicate. One day I decided to talk with GOD by sending "smoke signals". I built a "humongous" fire and went to get my mother's big bath towel for my blanket (you are to put it over the fire then pull it away, creating a puff of smoke). No one told me that the Indians soaked their blankets in water before putting them over the fire. "Swoosh" the blanket went up in fire like a gas balloon. In life, we make mistakes, some on purpose, some from selfishness and some through ignorance. Philippians 1:6, "Being confident of this...HE which has begun a good work in you will complete it..." When GOD starts something HE does not abandon it. Our transformation is where HE gives HIS Grace into our hearts, instills Faith measure by measure and gives us the fullness of the HOLY SPIRIT to complete us in HIS Love. What did I learn? We can hear and speak to GOD without SENDING SMOKE SIGNALS.
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
