A while ago I went to a meeting called "A Night With the King" one of the things the speaker had us do was spend time in silence and listen to what the Lord called us. God called me "Beloved Torry". I know it sounds bad but I was unhappy; God always calls me beloved or Torry when we talk; so it was just like he combined the two. I don't know, I was expecting something new and exciting. Today in church God called me a Gardenia. All day I thought on it. I can remember that my mom had a gardenia bush planted on the side of her house and the fragrance could be smelled in the front yard. I remember thinking "flowers don't really smell loud like that any more". Today I went for a walk and I continued to think on it and God called me a "fragrant flower". My God thinks that much of me; it brings me to tears just thinking about it. He loves you and thinks alot of you too!
13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying , Whom do men say that I the Son of man am ? 14 And they said , Some say that thou art John the Baptist : some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. 15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am ? 16 And Simon Peter answered and said , Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou , Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. 18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
