Hello everyone. I haven't posted in here in a while. I hope everyone is well. I have a story I have to tell. As some of you may know, God spoke
to me back in April. He has done it again.
Yesterday, I spoke to God. Some call it praying. Anyway, I have been sharing a lot with God lately and I always ask Him to do His will. I don't
tell God what to do. Who am I to tell God what to do?
So, as I sometimes do, I asked God to show me a sign that He is listening. This was in the morning at my desk at work. So, most days I take a walk
mid-afternoon and usually a friend of mine joins me. So we're walking yesterday afternoon and I almost walk on a Praying Mantis. The thing was
huge. This is only maybe the third one I have ever seen and this one was huge compared to the other two and this one was brown, not green. Well
anyway, it was walking across the parking lot and I didn't want it to get run over, so I picked it up which it didn't seem to mind and brought it to
the wooded area off the parking lot and put it on a tree. My friend and I continued our walk.
I didn't know at the time what a Praying Mantis symolized so I checked it out when I went back to my desk and this is what I found:
The praying mantis is the oldest symbol of God: the African Bushman’s manifestation of God come to Earth, “the voice of the infinite in the
small,”* a divine messenger. When one is seen, diviners try to determine the current message. In this culture they are also associated with
restoring life into the dead. “Mantis” is the Greek word for “prophet” or “seer,” a being with spiritual or mystical powers.
Meet the eye of a mantis and feel the presence of God.
Is this way cool or what? I did look that creature right in the eye when I picked it up. I said, "What are you doing walking across the parking
lot?" while I looked in its eyes.
Beautiful creature the Praying Mantis and my sign from God. It's too bad that society works real hard to de-sensitize people to the pressence of
God. Religion does the same thing. Too much dogma and nonsense. Give me a visit from a Praying Mantis and that's all I need.
