along the roads of Uniondale, God began to speak to me. As usual, I didn’t have a recording device or paper readily
available. Pulled to the side of the road, I found paper and pencil and tried to write some of what he was saying. Most importantly
was what he said after saying, “Without your permission I carried you.” He said, “As I carry you without
your permission, I have placed people in you that you must carry in your heart.” “Some may hate and even try to
destroy you, but you must yet carry them and hope for them that some day they may recognize that you helped God keep them
alive. Your prayers, your mothering them, even without their knowing it. You saw what they were doing to you. You took the
pain, but yet carried them with the hope and love of a mother who believes that someday they will come to themselves, shake
off the hatred of the old woman and live. Until then, as I carry you without your permission, you must also carry them without
their even knowing.
It hit me in my chest like someone punched me. It was powerful and straight to the
point. Sometimes we don’t just don’t think. Even when we did not know God as God, he “Without our permission
carried us. Now it is our time as warriors for God to act like we are his children and do as he does and not as minds of sin
will say do. Had God looked at our actions and inactions, he would never have carried us. Not only did he carry us, but he
gave his son to die for us. So when your selfish self try to take over, remember that you owe God to at the least help carry
someone who may today not be loveable, but through your displaying the love of God, they may learn because you decided to
obey God and carry someone without their knowing it.
You never know who God has praying for you and
you never know who your angel in disguise may be. With pride I agree to carry you in spite of how you may view me. You see,
my love for God out weigh’s my dissatisfactions, dislikes and doubts. I thank God for choosing me to help carry you.
