It occurs to me that if I am going to talk a lot about the 3rd Step as the "3rdStepGuy" which is my twitter handle, I should probably demonstrate my own relationship with God since the 3rd Step is all about "turning your life over to a power greater than yourself." So this blog, is just a sharing of my daily walk with God . . .
This morning as I woke up, I was kind of dragging my feet with God . . . actually has kind of been that way all week. I started moving and spent some time in praising God - thanking Him for what He has been doing in my life, etc. I then read my covenant with him, in which I reminded Him that I had turned my life over to Him and thus everything that is mine is now His, but the flip side of a covenant is that everything that is His is now mine!
I then left to go to La Hacienda in which I delivered 20 books ("The Little Book") to their store. I then came back home and spent the next few hours just being "still", finding myself just thanking God and praising God for all He was doing in my life. As I did this, I felt his warmth surround me and this "very solid peace" forming in my "gut" area inside of me.
As I sat there listening to that "still small voice" of the Holy Spirit, He said to me, "Have missed you Chris, stay close. All is well. I am with you. Rest in Me. Get lunch, and then get the air pump, and cigarettes (for ex-wife), and go see the little one (my 4yr old daughter). Love you!"
I then felt like it was time to get back into motion. So I went over to Culver's for lunch, and low and behold I run into a consultant friend of mine who I had not seen in a while. Then, I went to Walmart to get a small air pump to pump up a pool that I had bought for my daughter the day before, and I also purchased cigarettes for my daughter's mom. While there at Wal-Mart, I ran into a new acquaintance. So several "divine appointments" occurred because of the "order" in which I was told to do things which I had followed!
I then drove over to my daughter's house which is about 20 miles away - there I worked on blowing up her plastic pool, fixing a fence gate, and then cleaning out a little fish pond. She helped me with some of it. I had a great time with it all in spite of the heat.
After 3 hours of work in the sun, I quickly showered at their house, changed clothes, and drove back into Kerrville for a 3 hour board meeting with The Coming King Foundation. During that meeting, the Holy Spirit was speaking to me about several things I needed to share regarding different situations, which I did share with the rest of the board of directors.
Then I came home, and instead of taking a shower, I was led to start this "blog" about my daily walk with God, which has been on my mind for several days. Finally, getting it done.
Before I end, I hear the Holy Spirit telling me to tell YOU, that God "really does love you." That's it for now, going to take a shower, and then climb into bed, and let God tuck me in!
Have a great day tomorrow!
