Although I had really wanted to see this movie while it was at the movies, I was sort of in the mood for my old trusted favorite type of movie, yep you guessed it, a romantic comedy. As luck would have it, I watched "The Hobbit" and pulled out my journal and wrote like a mad woman on "Rock Candy from Greenfield Village".
The movie was not only entertaining but it was a self discovery journey and I completely indulged. As I enjoyed some bonding time with my son, other things started to become crystal clear to me and I think I will share them with you, ok?
Enlightenment comes to us at the most unexpected moments if our eyes and ears are open. When we find ourselves at the corner of what used to be and what is to come, then and only then will we truly be open and ready to receive what God has in store for each of us. God is very wise and crafty. He reveals Himself to those who hunger for Him and hunger for righteousness. The funny thing is, since our spiritual appetite is just that spiritual. We often don't realize we are hungry, but I am so glad that He does!
There is a saying among "Church Folk" that simply says, "More of You Lord and less of me". When our heart's desire is so, God in His love, mercy and faithfulness will show us His character and the His divine purpose/plan for our lives in snippets (yep...so sorry not all at once). It will be shared in a multitude of different ways. It will be shown thru pure worship, prayer (intimate conversations between God and us), songs (christian music, gospel, jazz and believe it or not...shhhhh sometimes even secular/R&B/Hip Hop). It can be shown thru journaling, playing a video game and even movies (If He wants you to know something, He is creative in getting the message to you). I have personally received some of my most memorable revelations from God, from some of the most unexpected places ie: "Wreck It Ralph", The Rise of the Guardians and the Croods".
