I met Pat Hastings a couple of years ago after a series of God-incidences. I literally heard of her in the morning and was sitting in her living room that evening with a bunch of wonderful women sharing their stories and intentions. Pat spoke about how we should pray to God for ourselves, something that I hadn’t done before. She shared her spiritual journey and how it led her to write her book and start a new career as a Spiritual Coach and Inspirational Speaker.
I purchased her book that evening. It was Friday night and I usually go yard sailing on Saturdays. Before I went to bed, I read the first chapter of her book about her yard sale forays. As I read her words, it was as if I had written them myself. So many things resonated with me except for one thing. She prayed for the things she wanted. Hmm, I thought. I have been looking for a small food processor and juicer all summer. I never thought of praying for God to provide it for me. I decided to give it a whirl. I prayed and asked God for a food processor and a little juicer. Although I’d never done it before, it didn’t seem all that weird, it felt very right. I went to bed feeling comforted that God was aligning the stars so that my treasures would show up in my travels the next day.
Sure enough, not only did I find the food processor, for two bucks, but I found the juicer, also two bucks. I was on a roll and decided to ask God for a book that I wanted. As we were driving around I said out loud, “God, I know this is last minute, but I would really like that book as well.” A half hour later, I walked into a yard sale and on a blanket on the ground was one book…the one I had asked for and the best part was that it was a quarter. Sold! I couldn’t believe it, but I became a believer.
Since this happened, I feel God’s presence more than I ever have. I feel like I’m not in this alone. I talk to Him like I never have before and I feel like He is listening. It seems strange that such a little thing could make that much of a difference, but it has. I felt heard and my prayers were answered. I look forward to working with Pat and having more God-incidences in my life, but more importantly developing a true relationship with God.
