Where have I been? Good question. I’ve been practicing “SOARING”.
I did not expect to write an article today. I was not sure I would ever write another one here. I even thought about starting a new blog site, and start from scratch. There is plenty here for people to read if they have an interest, why add more to something so few people really read? I mean, so many “likes” and no comments? Really?
However, I stumbled onto a blogsite that kind of got my juices flowing, and you know how it is when you feel like you need to write. I was actually checking out a Writer’s Conference I hope to go to, when I found this Pastor/blogger. He had an article on prayer, and you may have noticed my blogging diminished as I created what I have been calling “Prayer School”. I have learned there is such a great way to live! A lifestyle that is more like the chess player that can win in three moves rather than the ten moves a novice would take.
I left a comment on his site, but I wanted to say more. I had to refrain myself, because I have written a story on this very subject, and I don’t want to let too much of the cat out of the bag, until I have it ready. Know what I mean? I call it a children’s story ” for Adults”. I think the title will be “The Little Bird that Couldn’t”. That title sounds so familiar. I’m not done checking it out yet. But…it’s about a raven named “Flapless”, a wren named “Goliath”, and a three-legged turtle named “Tripod”, but he gets a name change I cannot mention yet.
So yes, here is an unexpected article about prayer. Yes, Prayer School is up and running. I am now remodeling our bathroom so it can match how nice our prayer room (Eagle Mountain) is. It’s a big job.
So far the dedication to Prayer School has been met with the typical enthusiasm that modern-day Christians have for the subject of prayer. We meet after our Church service on the first and third Sundays. We push our dinner plate back for two hours. It’s just for men. Our church is small, and I have two dedicated supporters. One for each of the two Sundays. It is somewhat of a “thankless” ministry, but that does not matter, I know what God has shown me, and I believe great things will come of it. I believe a great move of God is coming to the Church, it will be a quick-work, and so when it happens it will be those who are ready that gets to ride the curl of this massive wave!
In Isaiah 40:31 > God gave us a supernatural formula showing us a lifestyle of “Less flapping and more Soaring” That is what my children’s story for adults is about. Paul said he still had to speak to them as children. God has given me such a story.
The odds are greatly stacked against an unknown author in today’s environment. Things don’t look good for the raven called, Flapless, but I’ve decided he is where I want to be, whether it is popular, or not. Praise, Prayer, and Promises. You don’t need a lot of flapping when you understand and practice the 3-P’s. It’s all in the story. Hope people get to read it some day. Say a prayer my way. I welcome it.
“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
This is a supernatural lifestyle of more soaring, and less flapping.
