Hi…. I have been expecting you… I really look forward to your arrival… so don’t forget that we have arranged for a regular meeting together, right here. I will be watching for you!
Today, as I promised I would, in the first blog, “The Magic Show”, I will try to describe the indescribable during our time together. Words are indeed powerful instruments, but sometimes, even they are not adequate! This is one of those times, but words are all I have, so please try to understand!
I had been coming to the Doorway “Magic Show”, I for about nine months, when Mark Burchell, my counselor, first suggested we close the “show” with a prayer. Being a religious doubter and wanderer, which Mr. Burchell was aware of, my usual response was to say, “No thanks, I do not find much meaning in that, so let’s just move on.” But something was very different about that day, about 4 o’clock, May 16, 2016. Some vague force nudged me into participating in that prayer, in that moment! I mean fully participate as I had never done before! My mind was open, exposed, and free of any other distracting thoughts. Very, very unusual for me, as I always like to keep control… always!
There we were, two people being connected by a prayer! Mark began, and his words spilled from his heart and out through his mouth, and they engulfed the room like a sweet, light mist filling the entire space. His voice was the only sound behind those closed doors, and it suddenly occurred to me that I had not heard a prayer in many, many years. These beautiful, soft, reassuring words of gratitude enveloped me… I was transfixed and frozen in that moment! And then it happened! The most splendid, magnificent bonus of a lifetime! It was as if I was suspended in that space, in that time… I was a complete captive of the moment! It was impossible to let anything else in that space or my mind. I was being visited by the Holy Spirit! It was tender, gentle, peaceful and overwhelmingly intense! Warmth surrounded me… it was as if I was being cloaked in a warm wrap! I experienced a sense of love in its purest form, and it was beyond anything we understood on this earth. I was engulfed by it all. It was very intimate, but not sensual, and it was just for me. Again, I am trying to relay to you, my friend, the indescribable… I was scared straight! A wonderful scared… I could not get enough… I never wanted it to end, but then He was gone leaving me in complete wonderment and joy! His duty accomplished… a job well done! It was truly a moment of Paradise… miracles do occur in the strangest of places!
That happened on a Monday, and the following Sunday I was in church for the first time in over 40 years. I have been there every Sunday since then… what a beautiful bonus of a lifetime from “The Magic Show.” I firmly believe that this only happened because the right people were in the right place at the right time! Somehow, over time, I had moved away from my early, strong Christian training… I was wandering, but apparently not lost! I knew home when I saw it! My joy light was lit!
Come dream with me… it can happen to you. Believe!
Ms. LaRue, thank you very much for sharing your experience! What you are sharing makes me think of Colossians 3…
(vs.1) Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. (vs.2) Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. (vs.3) For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. (vs.4) When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. (vs. 15) Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
God’s promises are so good. You are being guided to appear with God in glory! What good news, and what an exciting journey you are on, Ms. La-Rue! Thank you for sharing!
Truly, the greatest gift of a lifetime! God said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” Hebrews 13:5, and He has been waiting for you with open arms…thank you for sharing your tender and profound story.
My dear Boom Boom,
Your experience with the Holy Spirit is such a gift. I thank God all the time for the love that we are able to experience from the ONE TRUE GOD because of the great gift of the Holy Spirit. Prayer is so very powerful. Telling of your experience is so encouraging, it helps me remember that God wants us to come to HIm in prayer. He longs to love us that way every day. Thank you for reminding me of this. I love you boom Boom!!!!!!
One of your biggest fans,
How wonderful is the day when we realize that we can lay all of our problems in God’s good hands. It is such a relief when we realize that it is not up to only us to deal with our problems.
Clearly a very deep and personal; experience that Ms. LaRue has shared.
