“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.” – Matthew 7:7-8
Happy Thursday, Everyone!!!
Yesterday was a pretty good day besides the unexpected snow flurries. I swore I saw Spring pop her beautiful head in last weekend. My guess is that Winter is having a hard time of letting go of the upper Midwest. We are very hospitable. 🙂
Yesterday. Yesterday I had a beautiful morning with my children. I cleaned my house with help. So nice to be able to provide a clean house for my family. Early in the afternoon I dropped my five year old off at preschool and my two year old decided to take an unexpected afternoon nap. I was alone. Not physically but no one was demanding my attention at the moment. I was able to have some personal time. What did that feel like, really?! I spent that time gazing out into the forest conserve in our backyard, as well as writing part of an essay for a program that I am interested in applying. Marvelous time. I rarely get time to myself these days until after bedtime.
Wow, what a relaxing day. It felt like a gift from God.
Later, I picked up my son from preschool. He ended up not wanting to leave and made a huge and embarrassing scene over it. He went into a complete rage. It was very unlike him almost as if someone took over his body/mind/spirit. I’ve never seen him like that before. I was hopelessly scared over what I witnessed. He continued this newfound behavior on the car ride home and when we settle at home. I tried talking to him but he seemed too upset to make words. I honestly didn’t understand what was going on with him.
It was at that moment that I decided to ask God for help. I said, “God, Heavenly Father, I don’t know what to do with my son. He seems to be very upset over something. He needs to be comforted and I cant seem to help. Please, please, help me help him.”
Right after I said those last words, “help him” I saw a crystal-like half halo float down over my son. As this halo floated over him, the expression on his face went from anger/sadness to one of comfort and release. It was amazing to witness. I can’t explain what happened but he came over to me and gave me a hug and apologized.
We were able to talk about his behavior, my reaction and a resolution. We were back to what was normal in our household.
So, what happened to him at preschool? I don’t have the slightest idea. My only thought is that he picked up someone’s negative energy ( maybe an attachment?). I guess, in the end, it doesn’t really matter. What matters most is that I asked God for help and He answered. He always answers.
My conclusion: We cannot live on human nutrients alone. We need God to provide us with spiritual nutrients as well. Seems like my son’s spirit was haltered in a way that day, and all he needed was some help from God to be released/restored to his original happy go-lucky self.
Thank you for reading.
