So during my quiet time tonight I was reading 2 Kings 4 and God spoke to me about meeting my family’s needs and taking care of us. I began to pray after reading and had an amazing conversation w/ God. Anyways while praying for my kids I hear Luke start crying in the back bedroom. So I think it’s probably no big deal because he has been whiny today. I felt God impress on my heart that He is always there for me and I should go be there for my son.
I get in the room and he is laying on the bed crying, “I want Pikachu!” He was playing his Nintendo DS and was sad because he lost Pikachu character on the game. I had two choices. Say, “Ah it’ll be alright. It’s just a game.” or “Son, you’re a great Pokemon player and I’m sure if you try hard you can get him back eventually.” I chose the second. He immediately picked up his DS and started trying again.
I love how when you pray and read God’s Word you are changed. PERIOD. If I had not just left quiet time w/ my Father, I honestly probably would not have reacted the same way as I did. Also I think it’s great to note that God is concerned about the little things in our lives. I don’t really have a vested interest in Luke’s Pokemon playing. But I do care that he was genuinly hurt. That’s the same for our heavenly Father. I don’t have “In A Pit With A Lion…”with me, but if I did I would quote the part where Mark talks about the floating ax head story in the Bible. Go read the book. But only if you’ve read the Bible today. It’s more important.
