I had grown up in church and had heard many times Mark 11:24 which is ask, believe and receive. I never really knew how to do the receiving part. After watching the video of The Secret and reading people’s stories, I now understand more fully and thought that I would try give it a try, albeit with small stuff.
One day my daughter called me and said the air conditioner was not working right and it was almost 80 degrees in the apartment. I did not want to come home to a hot apartment so after about 30 seconds was like, wait, this is a great time to try and use The Secret! So I prayed that the Lord would take care of things for me so that I could come home to a cool apartment and not have to deal with it. Then I thanked Him for it. From my bed I can always feel the cool air blow on me when the air conditioner comes on so I imagined myself laying in bed and feeling the coolness of the air blowing on me and being so cozy. I laughed to myself and continued to think about it a couple of more times.
When I got home, the place was not hot at all! In fact I would say it was almost cold! I asked my daughter how long it had been running right and she said for a while, which means it probably was not long after I had applied The Secret! That really made me smile and it has been working ever since.
Another story is that I had left my cell phone in the shopping cart at the grocery store. I did not realize it for about 20 minutes after we had left. I said a quick prayer asking that the Lord would take care of it. I used another phone to call the store to tell them about it. After putting me on hold I imagined someone finding it and taking it inside to the customer service desk. When they got back on, they said someone just turned it in!
When I went over to pick up my phone I was thinking; ‘close parking spot’, because it was the busiest time of day. I thought 2nd spot, no 3rd, no 2nd, lol! I approached the parking lot and it was full, the center lot was full. Just as I was passing, a lady was approaching her car door in the second spot! She got in and left and I got the spot! I love it!
I am now going for a much better paying job and one that I enjoy! I was told today about a position that is open. The district director thought I should apply for it. It does pay more but not what I was believing for, as I would still be “just getting by”, plus I don’t really enjoy my current job and it would be very similar so I think I will wait. I am a visual person and I love to take something that was not done correctly and then doing it right! I am excited about what’s ahead!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
