I tried to use the holy spirit for some M&Ms...


I tried to use the holy spirit for some M&Ms. In my defense, they were peanut M&Ms.

My mom and I were taking the kids on an adventure and before we went to the adventure we needed to stop by the store to get some snacks. Before I go any further let me clarify that we were going to the movies and I was smuggling in our own snacks, I did buy popcorn and slushes but I snuck in candy....

My mom and Lucy went in to buy the movie sized snacks for $1 at the local market. As they entered the store I remembered that I loved peanut M&Ms and I needed some. So I called my mom and I could hear her phone ring next to me. Shoot, she left it...

So, I did the only thing I knew to do.

Lord, I don't have a way to contact my mom and I need some M&Ms. We both have access to the holy spirit. Will you put on her heart and in her mind and give her a sense of urgency to buy peanut M&Ms? Obviously if it is your will...

And then I saw my mom and Lucy walking towards the car, I was so excited to see if M&Ms for me was in God's will...

And...

IT WAS NOT...

No M&Ms. I knew better than to use the holy spirit as a vending machine but I tried it anyways...

God is bigger than this and Jesus Can fix-it.
