Throwing Buddha in the Dumpster!

I have a friend who was recently telling me his testimony. I love testimonies - they are so full of God's hope, love, and power! My friend had been on drugs for several years and he told of how God had miraculously delivered him from his addiction. He has been off drugs for over four years! It was truly an amazing testimony.

As I soaked within the eyes land on this giant green Buddha statue sitting on his book shelf. It kinda jolted me.

As I thanked him for sharing his story, I told him I was a bit confused. I said if you believe in God and know God...then why do you have Buddha sitting on your book shelf? He gave me some crazy reason...but then admitted he thought it looked classy. I challenged him and kindly (strongly) suggested he get rid of it. He said I was not the first person that had said something about it.

A few weeks later, I returned to visit my friend and having totally forgotten about our conversation. As I walked in, the first words out of his mouth were, "take Buddha with you today when you leave." I was stunned..."really?", I said gleefully. He admitted he had thought about what I had said and he decided he should get rid of it. We chatted for a while and then as I was leaving, he reminded me to take Buddha with me.

I grabbed that old statue and walked (ran) straight to the dumpster. I threw Buddha that was exciting! I felt full of God's love, hope and power!

I had a message on my phone later from my friend. He said he was calling on behalf of his mother. She wanted to thank me for getting the demon out of her sons apartment! She had been the other person encouraging him to get rid of the statue!

Sweet Song from a Sweet Girl

God is looking down, God is looking down God is looking down
all around, up and down, to the left and to the right
looking at your heart
all He has to do
is open his hands
and blow a kiss on you
and you will fall in the love pit
your mind is not His mind

He has chosen you
He is watching over Mexico, Hollywood, and TX
if you are in dark
turn your back
even if you don't believe
He will still love you
once you pray
He will forgive you
and forget
1,2,3 just like that
if you are in dark
God is watchin' down on you

He has opened the door - gate
open the door
I will give you a secret
He is not looking from the door but from above
He is looking from up above
He is above the milky way

if you are in the dark
turn your back
shut the door
and lock the locks
give God your gift

He can give his heart away
He can never stop
Given by the Lord to sweet Kiera
