Prayer Copyer!!!

I was doing prayer with the kids yesterday and we’re literally 10-seconds in to praying when Odin looks at me like I had just stolen the 19 commandments from Moses on mount sinai and says, 
I’m like, NO, I’m praying!!!
He says, Weeeeeeeelllll, I said, I love you God! And THEN YOU said I love you God too!!! So, YOU DID COPY ME!!!
I was liiiiiike, yeah I said I love you God too, NOT BECAUSE I WAS COPYING YOU, buuuuuuuuut because, 
There was a REALLY LOOOOONG PAUSE, then, 
                             ooooooooh ok, I guess that’s ok then!!! 
I was liiiiiike, WOWWWWWWW!!!🤣🤣🤣

I have to say, Odin has a way of making EVERYTHING extra interesting!!!! Buuuuuuut sure do love this kid!!!

WHY God cannot be understood!!!

I was talking to one of my friends one time, and we were discussing how sometimes we just can't understand God. We don't get WHY He does things a certain way or WHY He allows certain things to happen. We just have to trust Him and know that He is looking out for us...And I started off in the discussion pretty theological "...the foolishness of God is wiser than men..." (1 Corinthians 1:25) I'm like you know, we just don't understand the way God works...Sometimes He’s JUST HARD TO FIGURE OUT!!! Then without thinking about it, it just came to me, I'm like, buuuuuuuuuut THEN AGAIN that makes PERFECT SENSE...
Then I seriously just cracked myself up!!! For like five minutes straight!!! I laughed and laughed and laughed about that!!! I even patted myself on the back! Good one Mary! GOOD ONE!!! 
Heeeeeey men just take it as a compliment if we females can't figure you guys out...its a GODLY TRAIT!!! Annnnnnnd if we CAN figure you out...that probably means your TOO MUCH LIKE US!!! Go gargle some gravel!!!! AHAHAHAHA!!!

I know that God is a spirit, buuuuut Jesus, who IS GOD manifested in the flesh, , is a man! Furthermore, every time God is referred to in the Bible, it is ALWAYS in a male connotation...NEVER FEMALE!!!

DC Pentecostal Shoutout!!!

We were in George Town doing a DC tour and we all had a lunch break and we were heading to the boat and I saw a group of people smiling at me… and it was weird because I had been seeing A LOT of modestly dressed people when we went to Lancaster but when I saw this group I KNEW they were Pentecostal… I was liiiiiike, are you guys Pentecostal????
They said they were, ANNNNNNND that they knew who I was cuz they read my blog… I was, that is soooooooo cool!!! The last thing I was expecting to find in DC!!!! There’s something about being Pentecostal, it’s not just dressing modesty that separates us from the world as it is with other Christian religions, it’s obedience to Acts 2:38, repentance, baptism in Jesus name and the HOLY GHOST, that truly separates us from the world and unites us together!!!
The people in my tour group were soooooo like, did you know those people? Why would you just take a picture with them? Who are they? One man kept asking me, well where are they from? I was like, Miami? He’s like, but where were they from before that? I was liiiiiike, idk 🤷‍♀️ liiiiiiike I literally just met them!!!! Buuuuuuut THE FAMILY OF GOD… we’re related by the blood 🩸 of JESUS!!!
Sooooooooo shout out to the Pentecostals from Brother John’s church ⛪️ in Miami Florida!!! The only names I remember are Kaleo, the only reason I remember that name is cuz I knew someone else with that name and it’s Hawaiian 🌺, Mona and baby Jace!!!! Thanks for being a reader of Classic Mary Moments!!! Feel free to keep in touch, MaryFrancesWriting@gmail.com I love making new friends and it was a highlight on my trip meeting you all!!! 🤗

No rear view mirrors!!!

"I'm shootin for the moon, an I'm in a spaceship, an this spaceship don't even have rear view mirrors, so that means I ain't even tryin to look back." 
My friend said this to me a while ago. It was a slightly ODD statement to say and yet, the AWESOMEST quote ever. I just loved it!!! Its like soooo ghetto, yet sooo profound. "...An this spaceship don't even have rear veiw mirrors..." <----- SOOO Ghetto...BUT sometimes I think we need to GET GHETTO!!!

Often times its the luxurious things in life that are holding us back in the kingdom of God! We have everything figured out just right. We're still in our comfort zone. We know all of our surroundings, we have our seat belts on, our seats just right, and our mirrors adjust perfectly. We're moving forward but we can still see behind us.
You don't need to see what's behind. Leave your past and just go. In the Bible, before destroying the City  in Genesis 19, God tells lot and his family, "...Escape for thy life; look not behind thee..." However, Lot's wife did look back and she was turned to a pillar of salt. 
What did lots wife need that she looked back? The WHOLE city was being consumed by fire, what did she need??? NOTHING!!! When your buried in the name of Jesus, THERE IS NOTHING in your past that you need to look back too. Looking back to this old world will ONLY destroy you. 
" But Jesus said to him, “No one, after putting his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.” (Luke 9:62) 
We need to leave behind the things that are holding us back. You don't need to look behind you living for God. There's NO REARVIEW MIRRORS on your way to heaven. Who cares if your spaceship is a little ghetto?! You don't need the fanciest transportation, as you travel this journey, you just need to GET TO HEAVEN!!!
All you need to do is get on the straight path, rip off those rearview mirrors and make up your mind...
I'm on my way to heaven and...
Shuttle on its back
 "I ain't EVEN TRYIN to look back!!!" 
"I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 3:14)
