Mark 6: 8 (These were his instructions: “Take nothing for the journey except a staff—no bread, no bag, no money in your belts.)
An ideal date for me and many girls out there is, once in a while her prince charming holds her hand and takes her to a nice restaurant by the side of a beach, good food, preferably live music. Followed by a long walk on the beach, talking about random stuff, life, passions, goals, ambitions, adventures and then sitting quietly on the beach, just listening to the waves, and looking at the moon
(Hint – “He who has ears to hear, let him hear,”.. 😉
When my prince charming took my hand and asked me out 5 years back, to this day all the calendar dates were amazing. We had fairly nice food, heard music, walked and talked a lot, felt few waves, sometimes just stared that moon, sun, stars and blue sky. Every day can’t be the same, hence I wrote the above lines on an average basis. Once in a while when we glance the past days, we are amazed and it feels good, the reason is obvious that we are enjoying each other above all the elements of the date mentioned. Take one of us out from that romantic set up, the whole story would be different.
In this journey of our life with our Heavenly Father, world throws situations like – no bread (satisfaction or strength), no bag (protection or security), no money (wealth or resources), and no extra cloth (prestige or dignity). But, we should enjoy Him rather than the beach, music, food, waves, the Sun and the Moon. We should realize that if we were alone in this, the narration of this story won’t be the same.
So once in a while pause and answer His question – “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?” our answer will always be “No Dear Nothing,”. No matter what, this journey with Him is amazingly awesome!
Luke 22: 35 (And he said unto them When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said Nothing.)
