Healing A Low Energy Man With A Hyper Little Puppy
God loves me. I am possessed by that fact. Scriptures says that the same holy spirit that raised Jesus from the dead, also lives in me. I believe that with all my heart, and because of this, I want to keep this temple in shape. I work hard to eat well and keep my mind, body and spirit in good health.
To stay in shape I work out at a nearby park. That outdoor park became my gymnasium two years ago. It’s beautiful, its free and it has weights and equipment around the entire 1.5 mile track. I love it and although it was originally made for softball and baseball tournaments, they expanded into an exercise park.
I usually speed walk the one and a half mile loop. This day I passed by a few people when suddenly I saw the cutest little puppy. He was attached to a leash and at the other end of the leash was his human pet. (You know our pets think that way about us.)
I’m not a dog-lover, but this little Yorkshire terrier started jumping all over the place, doing flips, just so I’d stop to pet her. I couldn’t hold back, or take my eyes off her. I knelt down on the ground and tried to calm her down. When I looked up at her owner he was standing in the sunlight so all I could see was his shadow.
That’s when I heard the Holy Spirit say, “His energy is low.”
That was such an odd thing to have heard in my mind, but that’s part of the reason I know it comes from the spirit and not myself. I would never have known that because I couldn’t see him in the sunlight. I said hi and asked him a few questions about his dog. That’s when I heard in my spirit that he’s not feeling well and needed time to heal.
I stepped to the side so I could see him and said, “Your energy level seems a little lower than normal today. Are you not feeling well?”
He must have thought that was the strangest thing to hear since we’ve never even met. He looked at me very oddly, and responded, “Well, I did just get out of the hospital recently. I had hernia surgery, and….he stopped, no doubt wondering why he’s saying something so personal to a complete stranger like most people tell me. “I…I guess you’re right. I am feeling pretty low in energy.”
“I see.” I said, in a pretty matter of fact way. “Well, would you mind if I prayed for you? God loves you very much and knows that you need a boost of energy right now. He never wants us to be in pain and always wants us to heal. I’ll pray for you okay?”
He nodded his head and said a humble, “Thank you.”
Now listen, when someone says, “I’ll pray for you.” how often do you really believe they will remember to do so? I knew there was no way I could leave him and not do it immediately. God wanted to heal him right now. So I raised my hand like an antenna to the sky, and prayed that pain would immediately be removed, and that God would heal him while restoring his energy.
When I said, “Amen!” His face said it all. He looked so surprised. He immediately felt a surge of energy. He thanked me a few times for praying for him and as he walked away he had a much lighter step and a huge smile on his face.
Listen, we serve a good, good father. God wants you to live your best life. How do I know? Read the stories on this blog. Over and over God gives a word of knowledge about people and wants to heal and restore them to health again. He LOVES US. We don’t have to do or be ANYTHING to receive his love. All he asks is that we believe. This is why I live for him and love him with my whole heart.
If this is the first time you’ve ever read anything from my blog, hold on to your hat. You’re in for a wild ride! If you’ve been dealing with depression then read the story about the girl with the phone. If you doubt how much God cares, read the story of the homeless man in Goodwill. There will be so many stories here that will inspire you to know who God is and why he made a way for us to live in joy and hope.
ALL of us need a Day of Love for healing and restoration.
