We left off last month, (September’s Blog) “In the Garden” …. Now, He wants to take you out for Dinner….

He invites you to dinner. You want to look your very best for Him. Take your time to get dressed and take your time to put on your makeup and perfume. Oh, and don’t worry about buying a new outfit, He loves that outfit you already have. (LOL) Let Him pick the time and place. He is a gentleman and He knows this is His duty. As you arrive for dinner, allow Him to seat you, because He is a perfect gentleman. You look around and notice how everything is so well planned and in its proper place. The atmosphere is so sweet, and the fragrance of the room is breath taking. You notice how He is such a gentleman in how He waits for you to say that you are ready for dinner. He pours the water first (cleansing) and as you drink it the quenching of your thirst is satisfied to the fullest. Next, He offers you appetizers…. Bites of Love, Peace, Joy and Happiness all arranged so pretty on a platter. As you partake of the appetizers, HE makes small talk by introducing Himself a little more to you. As you listen to Him you can tell that He is genuine and sincere. He flashes a smile and you are overtaken by love and joy! Next is the main course. There are 66 choices to choose from. You can’t make your mind up, which one to choose, but He assures you that either one is as tasty as the other. You finally make your mind up and choose one. He brings your dinner to you and it smells so delicious, not like anything you have ever smelled before. Your smell senses are to the highest power! You take a bite of the meal and it melts in your mouth. The taste is so sweet and delicious that you want to know the recipe (Bible). He goes through the recipe from beginning to end and you become increasingly full just by Him showing you the recipe.

You notice that as He was going over the recipe there’s another glass beside you. This glass is pure crystal and in it is the reddest wine your natural eyes have ever seen. He invites you to take a sip of it and as you do you feel so covered with grace and mercy that you become overwhelmed with tears of joy!! He brings out the dessert and though they look like little Hershey’s kisses they taste of Pure Love and Satisfaction! You ask Him how and why HE prepared this wonderful dinner for you and He pauses and smiles before HE answers. While you are waiting for an answer you notice that He hasn’t eaten a bite, but as if HE hears your thought, (why hasn’t He joined me in dinner?), He finally responds by saying, “Everything that I have served you from the water to the appetizer to the main course, and even dessert is everything I am and Everything I can be to you and for you. The water for cleansing, and the appetizers of love, peace, joy and happiness is what you can have everyday from me. The main course that melted in your mouth is my word, which will melt all the way to your heart and soul. Partaking the red wine with the main course covers you with grace and mercy so that you can digest the meal that I prepared for you. The dessert came last because it is pure. The satisfaction of the dessert is only experienced by those who have tried the first and second part of dinner. I am ALL these things; therefore, there was no need for me to partake of them. I just love being able to prepare the dinner for you!

The dew is on the grass and flowers. The grass is so green. The trees are so tall but seem so friendly. Their branches dance as the wind blows through them. The birds are singing a song of joy! The wind is so subtle and gentle… Then… He shows up and everything in the garden bows down to Him. Even the birds stop singing. His voice is so sweet and gentle. His presence brings a sweet aroma. The petals from the roses make a walkway for Him and the sunflowers put on their biggest smile! He has come to the garden for the most important thing in His life… YOU! He has come to spend quality time with you; to introduce Himself personally to you. He wants to get to know you and vice versa, He wants you to know Him. He’s so excited about being with you that His heart skips a beat just seeing your face. So, meet Him in the garden, He promises you it will be worth your time.

Intentional- A mental state that represents a commitment to carrying out an action or actions in the future.

An Intention is an idea that you plan (or intend) to carry out. Your goal, purpose, or aim is your Intention. It’s something you Mean To Do (whether you pull it off or not).

God Is Intentional! He created the heavens and the earth with great Intentionality. He took His time with all of creation, including you and me! You see, God birthed each of us with a particular task, an assignment a Purpose and a Plan that Only you can do the way He Intended it to be done! The Bible says that He knew me before I was conceived in my mother’s womb. He knew me and had already determined my purpose, plan and destiny, before my parents even met! He Intentionally designed me with the purpose, plan and destiny Intended for Me! God gave me Everything I needed to fit into the space that was Intentionally designed for me. No one else can fit into that space that He created for me to fit in like I can fit in it. I Am A Designer’s Original; therefore, I dare not question why I am made this way, but, for what was I made this way. The “for what” is the key. I dare not think that I am not enough or that I am to much or that I am anything other than what God Intended me to Be! If it is not working out, I have to consider if I am doing what the Creator Created me to do!

We MUST Celebrate and Encourage each other. We must call out the gifts that we see in each other! We must stop walking on mercy and grace and Intentionally extend them both! We should Never envy or compare, but always remember that God our Father and Creator, gave us Everything we need to do what He Intentionally Planned for US to do! Consider this; I DON’T NEED IT IF HE DID’NT GIVE IT TO ME! And on the flip side of that ; Am I using what HE HAS given me! My Sisterkeeper once said to me, “What did He Tell YOU To Do”! I have never forgotten that, and it has become a constant reminder when I get off course. Because I know that I have been given everything I need, when I feel some type of way about someone else’s gift, I am reminded that if I needed that gift to do what He designed me to do, he would have given it to me!

Our greatest weapon is our Mind, Not our Mouth! (these are just my thoughts). I feel that if we could take heed and really learn to cast down thoughts that are not from God, we would not let such foolishness come out of our mouths. The words that I speak begin with my thoughts. We must be Intentional when it comes to guarding our hearts and our thoughts. We must practice casting down those thoughts that are not of God.

I close with this: Philippians 4:8

NLT- And now my dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is True, and Honorable, and Right, and Pure, and Lovely, and Admirable. Think about things that are Excellent and Worthy of Praise.
