And just as I was emotionally healing from that situation, I went to a restaurant in suburban St. Louis with a friend to have dinner the last Friday in June, was being led to my seat by the hostess, and suddenly I slipped and fell on their hard slate floor. I ended up having to go to the emergency room of the hospital the next day due to I felt like a truck had run me over like "Wiley Coyote" in the Bugs Bunny cartoons.
Any-who, after a thorough examination and some x-rays, I was told by the doctor that I had a sprained left ankle, sprained neck and back along with bruises on the left knee. A woman sitting in the restaurant was so concerned that she asked me, "Are you okay, because I felt that?!" I am just thanking and praising God I am still here with you to tell the story! Now, I have to get treatments for my back and sprained wrist, but I am grateful I did not hit my head and end up in a coma or worse! It just reminded me that as long as you are a direct path and mission doing what God has told you to do, the enemy gets busy with distractions. I am in the middle of major projects and major "kingdom building" and the enemy knows that. He knows the plans for greatness God has for you and he is bound and determined to keep that from coming through. So he puts up road blocks. He even sends people to get in your way. He places anything on your road to success and kingdom building he can to stop you from achieving what God designed you to obtain your time on this earth. And what we've got to do is stay focused. See distractions and our own procrastination as "dream blockers." And when you fail or crash over something, just get back up and start again because you are a winner in Christ. God has planted seeds of greatness in all of us. He has given each and every one of us gifts and dreams. We just have to recognize them when they show up in us. We also have to know who we are, whose we are, and that to whom much is given, much is required.
"IN EVERYTHING GIVE THANKS FOR THIS IS THE WILL OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS CONCERNING YOU."
