I felt the Lord prompting me to get my house in order. Then, I heard “come to the table.” I recently met Saida and her mother in Yazoo City with a ministry that does just this! I had thought about selling my china, silver and crystal a few years back but never got around to doing it. I knew this was the reason why!
As I was cleaning the 15 years of grime off of them, I got emotional. I grieved the fact that I got them from my first marriage and had never used them. I also began feeling a little depressed as I had failed as a bride. So, I began talking to the Lord about it as I knew it was His prompting for me to release them. I fell to my knees and wept after hearing “you are helping me to prepare a banquet for My bride,” amen? Even as I am typing this I feel His presence and know His ways are so much higher than mine (Isaiah 55:8-9). I stand in awe and so thankful He is working all things out for His glory!
When I was getting everything ready to move, I remembered Belinda had given me a green travel mug so I could have some coffee one night I was headed back to Tupelo from her home. I thought how fitting…she released a mug and the Lord upgraded it to a four piece place setting! I am anxiously awaiting the stories of what happens at the table and how lives and communities are transformed because of her ministry, amen?
