I looked at the cookbook I used; it actually is a Betty Crocker cookbook, not a Better Homes and Gardens one. I hate getting senile.
Recently, I was going through my purse to remove stuff I didn't need/use, and came upon an AMEX gift card I'd bought and used online earlier this year. I checked the balance, and it still had $30.07 left on it. Bonus! Yesterday I used it to buy a magazine, and it's disappeared! I know I put it back in the same place I took it out of; I distinctly remember watching myself put it back. I didn't open that section of my purse again from the time I left the store until I got home and discovered it missing. I've gone through every compartment of my purse, my backpack--even though there's no way it could've gotten in there--and I never put it in my pockets.
Pastor Brian has been teaching on the 7 Laws of the Harvest, and yesterday he was saying how when we're about to achieve a goal or a victory, the enemy comes in and attacks.
He was saying how one time his two little daughters once had a pet rat, and they had two hound dogs as well. Whenever they would leave the house, they would lock the door of the room the rat's cage was in, so the dogs wouldn't go after it.
One day they came home late, the girls were asleep, and they unlocked the bedroom door to put the girls to bed. They noticed that the dogs were in the room, and were sniffing in a corner of the closet. The rat's cage was empty. Pastor took the dogs out and went to see what was going on. He found the rat in the closet, shaking with fright. His wife Danielle tried to take the rat to the vet to see if it was okay, but it died of a heart attack before she could do so. Next morning, Pastor had to tell his little girls that their rat had died.
This was clearly the attack of the enemy, directed at his daughters, and it made Pastor Brian mad. I mean, how else could the dogs have gotten into the locked room?
I believe the enemy took my AMEX gift card because having an unexpected $30 was a victory for me, and he couldn't stand it. Please pray I get it back, or otherwise receive a miraculous financial blessing.
