So I've got this theory. It goes a little something like this: being God's is better than being rich.
If you know me, you know that I am not rich (and you are also a very lucky person). So what was I saying? Yes. I am not rich. But I am God's. And I figure: "Hey, God is God and can give me whatever I ask for. So why not ask?" So I do. I ask.
In fact, I have a book full of requests. It's my Give and Get Book.
"Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Don't worry about anything, instead, pray about EVERYTHING." -my paraphrase of Philippians 4:6 NLT.
So that's what I do. I tell God what I need. And sometimes I happen to need baubles and clothing and chocolate. I list:
That my baby naps
A shirt dress
Look by Vera Wang
And then when I get the items I have asked for I check them off. So far it's really working (I got the perfume as a gift from my husband for "International Kimberly Day").
You may have noticed that I don't just list material items either. I list EVERYTHING, everything that I want. Because I figure, being God's is BETTER than being rich because there are some things money can't buy. So I ask God. And God gives.
So I asked God for a shirt dress. I wrote it down. I thought about it, forgot about it. And then I went to a clothes swap. And lo and behold: a shirt dress. Just my size. Just my colour. And no one else wanting it except me.
I think I'm going to write down "Prada Purse" next.
