Today, I had the opportunity to get a free bottle of overpriced “natural perfume.” There were a bunch of choices; I picked the one that’s heavily overlaid with the one scent that I know the Eastern Mystical Friend (EMF) loves… and I don’t. My roommate knows how I feel about this scent, and when I told him I was getting it in expectation of the EMF coming back soon so that I could wear it with him, this man who is totally non-religious and non-spiritual, and thinks that anyone who IS spiritual/religious is deluded, and knows nothing about MY religious life, said: ”That’s an act of faith.” !!!!!!!!!!
It sort of amuses me that God keep using this “godless heathen” to say these astonishing things… and of course, if He can make my roommate do THAT, imagine what He might be doing behind the scenes to bring me explosive blessings. The EMF will be back in my life SOON.
Biblegateway provided me today with this lovely and timely verse:
Psalm 95:1-2 (NIV)
1 Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord;
let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before him with thanksgiving
and extol him with music and song.
