As I entered my second house of the day, already limbered up by the first. I turned my focus unto the Creator and went about the menial jobs that were set before me. First off the living area, and then to the bedrooms where all the dust bunnies loved to hide. Onto the bathrooms where EVERYTHING else was hiding! I loved working at Susie’s house she always made me feel welcome. I never felt any less, and that was because God had made her more! My Job was not only my job, but also my prayer closet, where as the grime and dirt was washed away, so were my sin and worries, confusion and pain. I loved to meet Jesus there in the sweat and tears, I always found it amazing, He still saw me as beautiful, and worthy of His time. The many fervent prayers lifted up that morning were not much different from the ones before. Times like this, with God were very intense, humbling, and anointed! God was defiantly present and I was listening! We were conversing as I cleaned the shower .....(everyone chuckles when they find out where God called me into a full time ministry) about a need I had, to give back to Him.It just wasn’t enough to know Him, loveHim, praise Him, I needed to do more, I wanted to serve Him! I had been cleaning houses for three years and God at that moment , very softly but firmly spoke to me as he wiped the salty tears from my cheeks and reassured me He was in control!
“This time of cleaning houses has been preparation time for you to come and clean My houses! “
That very day I gave away my business, I submitted my two weeks notice to my clients, and I contacted an outreach ministry where they had already discussed me coming on board full time!
Within two weeks I had raised enough financial support, and had gone before the mission’s committee at my church. As I look back and think about that first time God called me, I eagerly await His voice, and pray the words out of my mouth will be...... “Yes Lord What’s Next? Pick Me ! “
