You’ll notice a post about “doin it”….being specific and persistent. But whadda I know?
Today, I’m on a bus coming from the city and it breaks down. Like shuts off on its own. NEVER in all the time I’ve lived in the tri-state area and/or needed to be on public transportation have I ever had that issue. Never had a train stop. Never had a bus stall. But this one said “I’m DONE.”
Why is this important? Because as I’m sitting and waiting for a new bus or the next bus, I “prayed”: “Lord….somebody ain’t got NO business being on this bus. Cover them Lord. AhhhMen.” I texted my pastor Revvie (that’s what I call her) to tell her the funny story and she gently let me know that the person who ain’t have no business there, might just be me, and sent me Jonah 1:3-16. All I could do was laugh! Could it really be me that’s holding Lil Robbie up from meeting his girlfriend at the mall?
So you’re wondering…how is any of this connected? Well, I am supposed to be praying specifically and persistently about a new job and a new car. Not only am I supposed to be praying definitively on those things, I know it’s well past time for those two issues to come to fruition. I started out strong, but I got distracted. And so, I’m still on the bus. Even further, I know I’m supposed to be updating this blog consistently. I even met with my mentor to talk about the work I know I have to do, but I realized leaving her that I still honestly haven’t fully signed onto this ride. I’ve done the minimum to make myself feel like I’m being obedient. In person, it looks like I’m “on my way”. In my mind, I’m sitting under that tree like Jonah, cursing God out. But, as usual, My Daddy has a way of checking me that always makes me laugh…and not always funny ha-ha, but funny, I got it.
And on this, I got it. I have stuff to do.
