Ziggy is my cat. Named after “Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.” A David Bowie album.
Funny how God talks to us. Last night He used Ziggy to talk to me.
I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn’t sleep. Ziggy was curled up at the foot of my bed fast asleep. As I was lying in bed trying to get to sleep I got a vision.
I saw big, puffy clouds. From the clouds I saw a giant hand reach down holding a long string of pink wool. Ziggy looked up and started playing with the string. You know what cats are like with wool. Ziggy batted the string around with her paws, hitting it, grabbing it, chewing on it, jumping around. I saw God smiling as He played with Ziggy. This must have went on for hours. Then Ziggy jumped up and started to climb the long string of wool. Up the string, higher and higher toward God’s hand, one paw at a time.
I knew this must be some kind of a message so I asked God what it meant. I got nothing. All I saw was Ziggy playing with this long string of pink wool and climbing up the string.
Then it hit me. God said, “Have fun with me. Let’s play and have fun together. Use our relationship to have fun and joy in your life and get to where you want to go.”
I thought it was a good message. Real simple but cool.
We take life too seriously sometimes. God loves us like we love cats and wants us to have fun with him. Kick back and laugh, sing, dance, play, whatever we want to do to have fun with our Father in Heaven. We worry to much about the day to day stuff. We need to stop and smell the coffee, enjoy our ride with God. Jump up high, have fun and get closer and closer to our Father. While we are having fun we discover who we are and our purpose on earth. Follow God, have lots of fun with your Father. Along the way use your relationship to find out where your destiny lies.
I dunno. This is how I saw it, anyway. How do you have fun with God?
