i had new person comment on one of my posts the other day about being back in the real word.
It was reassuring. I may be back in the real world but God is with me too.
As I bounced over to her blog, Supernatural Christian, I read the following post Called "Be Assured". In it she speaks of her sensitivity to evil in the world, and other people.
She is an awesome writer and a bit trippy.
Anyway I digress.
Tonight at work I snuck out to get a break from the hustle and bustle of closing the restaurant.
To be honest, I had to have a smoke. (Just keeping it real, yes I still struggle with the nicotine fiend.)
So I am sitting out there, and one of the guys comes out and pulls his car up close to where I am sitting. Now I am tired, my feet are hurting like a hammer whose seen to much action, and this jumps out after turning his stereo up loud so I can here the song that has been running in his head all day.
This cat is a good guy at work, does his job, doesn't gripe too much and he's an admitted bi-sexual. He's got that underground disco/techno lifestyle going. and for those familiar with it, you will understand what I am talking about.
I spent a lot of time in my past drinking and drugging in all kinds of bars: gay, straight, country, etc. Each one has their own subculture, of druggies and drunks.
So all of a sudden this trashy song starts blaring, thump, thump, thump. Bass and high-hat tripping right along. This guys starts lip-synching the lyrics to impress me with this song.
To be honest, I have heard worse, and at one time in my life I probably would have thought the song hilarious. However, all of a sudden my blood ran cold with fear and anxiety.
In my mind I started praying for the Spirit of the Lord, and it came to me that I needed to get myself back inside.
So I told the guy, I gotta get back and finish cleaning up, and rather abruptly went back inside.
On the drive home I thought about what had happened, and I thought about Given55's blogpost.
There was an evil presence floating around that moment, that second, this guy pulled up and cranked out his music.
It really freaked me out. I struggle with my own garbage and sin every day. But thank God I have the Holy Spirit inside, protecting me, admonishing me, saving me.
This guy didn't have that, he had something else, and in that moment I felt it.
Pray for this guy who I'll call Joe. (generic enough?)
