I'll share one with you. One time shortly after I came to know Him, I remember just wanting to spend so much time with Him. I'm a very early riser, but when I first came to know Him, there were many late nights out with friends so I guess I slept in during that season of my life. I remember one night praying before bed that He would help me to wake up early in the morning to spend time with Him...and then I went to sleep. My alarm went off early in the morning. I rolled over, shutting it off and then went back to sleep. All of a sudden, I hear what sounded like rain. I'm a light sleeper...and noises have always bothered me. I got up to check out the window for some reason to see if it was raining... but it wasn't. I thought it was odd, but went back to bed. Again as I was falling asleep, I heard the sound of what I thought was rain...but the sound got louder and louder this time. All of a sudden, the ceiling opened up above my head and water fell all around me, soaking everything in my room. I was definitely up then...no going back to sleep for me. The man in the upstairs apartment had turned on his tub, and then fell asleep with it continuing to run. Well you guessed right...it overflowed and thus the downpour. Some may call it coincidence...but I know better. God was revealing Himself to me even in this. I remembered my prayer the night before, and still chuckle to this day. God has a sense of humor...and He answered my prayer. It's an answer that I will never forget.
If you think about it, we are so much like Him. We should be...we were created in His image. My son, Josh, had been asking for a new computer for the longest time. So one birthday, we decided the perfect gift for him would be just that. I get a kick out of playing pranks on my children...so I decided to wrap up my computer for him and bring out the real one after. Josh was so excited...He ripped open the package...and then looked at me funny. ...well here's a short video clip of my answer to his birthday request... https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=2062294361666&l=3420182437625644987
Laughter really does do good like medicine...He makes me laugh, and I'm sure I make Him laugh. He truly is a God of laughter and rejoicing... If you are struggling today, know that God loves you so much and rejoices over you.. in Job 8:21, it says, "He will yet fill your mouth with laughter, and your lips with shouting." ...and in Psalm 16:11, "You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore." God has a sense of humor...really He does, and He will share it with you if you let Him. Taste and see that the Lord is good!
