What’s the 11th item on your bucket list?
Daily Prompt: Kick It
Well, in order to participate in this prompt, I guess I’ll have to come up with a bucket list. Am I the only one who has never made a bucket list? I wonder if I’m the only one who wasn’t 100% sure exactly what a bucket list is. Praise God for Google! You can find the answers to just about anything there. Anyway, what follows is my bucket list, not necessarily in order of preference… I’ll elaborate on #11, when I get to that one… I guess I’ll attempt 15 bucket items:
Go to Israel
- Go to Australia
- Go to Alaska and see the Northern Lights
- Go to Niagara Falls
- Write a Best Seller
- Dance for the Lord again
- See Mary Poppins on Broadway
- Go to Disney World with all of my grandchildren
- Visit every state in the U.S.
- Go to a rodeo
- Heal people with my shadow when I walk by.
- Write a movie script
- Raise the dead
- Preach my own funeral (I have to do it before I die and record it, because afterwards, it will be too late)
- Open a halfway house to minister to female inmates and prepare them for life when they get out of prison
In Acts 5:15, we learn that people brought their sick out into the streets so that Peter’s shadow would fall on them and heal them. Peter was so filled with God’s Holy Spirit, that just his shadow healed people. I really believe that God is the same yesterday, today and forever, so what He did in biblical times, He can do now in modern times, and the scriptures say that He’s no respecter of persons, meaning that He doesn’t pick favorites. Therefore, He loves me just as much as He loved Peter, and what He did through Peter, He can do through me, if I will just believe. So that is number 11 on my bucket list… to heal people with my shadow in Jesus’ name.
Actually, it’s #1, but since I’ve never had a bucket list before now, as I was writing the things I want to do before I die, I saved that one for #11 so that I could talk about it…
Lord, give me the faith to believe that You will work miracles, signs and wonders through me. Father, let me heal the brokenhearted and the sick, in Jesus’ name… amen.
