Last night I went to dinner, in a restaurant! With other people! It was amazing and fun and the food was to die for. How did this come about you ask, well settle down for a little story.
I have a friend named Stephanie that ministers to people, I’ve talked about her before. It all started a few weeks back when she posted on Facebook, about being patient and waiting on the one God has for you.
As we all know, I don’t think highly of myself, I couldn’t stop myself, I said that no man would ever want me, I’m old, I’m menopausal, I have weird taste in movies and tv shows. Besides I’m not attractive.
I think she was so taken aback she really didn’t know how to respond. So she asked me to join her and some other ladies for dinner and prayer. I was completely down for that. I’ve missed praying with other people, in person.
First of all it was at a restaurant in the Legacy area in Plano. I have not seen that many people in a long time! It was amazing to see, people walking and shopping, dining and laughing.
The restaurant itself was lovely, French food that was perfect.
The women were so nice, they were warm and accepting. They talked about the blessing bags they make for homeless people and what goes into them, that was wonderful.
One woman looked just like Kirstie Alley and just as full of life and humor.
Then my friend said she wanted to pray over me, she could sense the self doubting spirit and wanted it gone. It was incredible, I cried, one woman told me that God wants me to see myself through His eyes not mine.
My soul feels so much lighter and I am back on track. It is so easy to get into that place where we allow those spirits in. Always remember whose child you are. God the father, we say that for a reason, seeing ourselves through His eyes is imperative for all of us.
I am no longer doubting myself. I hope you all know who you are and who you belong to.
