Divine Intervention (In Haiku)

God's intervention,
A term for a miracle
In the human world.

I prayed for this day
And cried when it came to be -
It touched me deeply.

Or are they God incidents?
Let your heart decide.

When the preacher spoke
I knew it was God talking
He answered my prayers!

The message was strong!
It reached deep into my heart
Strengthening my faith.

I prayed after church
For an extra ten minutes
Asking for answers.

He responded fast.
That call was answered quickly.
I knew what to do.

I once trusted guys.
Now am committed to Him.
He answers my prayers.

I have seen glory
He has shown me He is Lord
I am second now.

Our relationship
Takes priority in life
And rewards me huge!

Nothing can fill voids
Like the love of Jesus Christ
You must first believe.

He can not be seen
If what you seek is a man
He is a presence.

Within my own heart
The Holy Spirit speaks up,
Leads me through this life.

Prayer - talking to God.
Meditation - listening.
Practice both often.

Dreaming of Apples

The other night I had a dream: 

I dreamt of these different apples sitting in a basket on a picnic table.

 There were a few types - like Gala, Red Delicious and Fuji. 

The one I normally prefer is the Fuji, for the sweetness and tartness. 

However, in my dream the one called Fuji was the Red Delicious. 

I remember struggling to try the Red Delicious because it looked like a normal Red Delicious.

But when I woke up, I remember that apple tasting so amazing, 
and juicy and tart that I am still craving one to this day!

I took my dream to mean this:

Sometimes we think we know what we want, 
but the taste left in our mouths is not what we thought we would receive. 

Then, the ones we least expected to taste great are actually what we preferred!

Be open minded.
