Invitation of the Unseen Guest

My Mom and Dad Arrived Here off the Train A Couple of Days Ago!!Thankfully, The Archer Got This Wild Turkey The Same Day So We Could Have an Early Thanksgiving Feast!! Moonbeam and Friend

The other day, as "the girls" and I sat around my table sharing some rhubarb spice cake and coffee, we talked about our husbands plans for the future. One of them said "I'm just so afraid that I will get to the end of my life and find out that I missed what God had for me to do." It was a valid concern that many of us have pondered a time or two. As each friend quietly bared her soul, it became apparent that one morning of devotions couldn't resolve all the emanating issues. I proposed we set aside a couple of days for fasting and prayer..............
The days were chosen and executed as planned. Misunderstandings surfaced. Issues began to dissolve, though I didn't particularly feel anything different. Then, suddenly, that all familiar invisible guest appeared one stormy night. A gentle breeze blew through my bedroom window igniting His presence in the room. As He walked about the house, I felt reassured that Destiny would unveil itself. The unseen guest reminded me of things I'd been slacking in and sacrifices I hadn't been willing to make. Knowing how to speak to me like nobody else can, He planted a vision of the future all the while reminding me of how my present attitude would influence that plan. Though I didn't sleep much that night, I slept infinitely well, refreshed in the charged in the stormy atmosphere. As the rain poured outside and the breeze blew in, I couldn't imagine a place or time I'd rather be living in.
That next morning one of "the girls" called and we talked about how hungry she is. Though the fast is long since past, she can't seem to stop hungering and thirsting after The Unseen Guest, and for His plan to unfold in her life. I smiled, knowing He'd responded to our invitation. Things would be different now.
Have you invited the Unseen Guest into your home lately?

As a church we have recently prayed and fasted for a week and have seen God move both individually and corporately as a church. Love this post- it is so well written and inspiring.
Best wishes and God's blessings from England

I loved reading this. It is such a good reminder of how easily we get sidetracked in our life and forget to keep Christ first. I need that reminder daily :-)
