“Where are the Caped Crusaders for God?”

I think my story is boring you. (Do You have your Gotham?) My numbers are dropping as you show me your disinterest. Ah, but you don’t know what is coming. You see, the journey is so important, and do you think it is easy to be a “Batman” for God? Oh but the “religious” are mad now. Did I really say a Batman? Yes I did. AT LEAST HE WAS WILLING TO PAY A PRICE FOR HIS CITY AND I DON’T THINK YOU ARE. SO JUDGE ME IF YOU WILL, BUT I’M FREAK’N TIRED OF UNINSPIRING BORING CHRISTIANS!

Oh, oh. Is honesty really the best policy?

Even though every little detail of the journey is so very important… and why? Because you might take such a journey someday and when certain things happen you might think you’ve missed God, when you haven’t. Let me give you an example. This has not come up in my “Do You have your Gotham?” story yet. Very few even know, but I’ve been very sick for three weeks now. Every time I think I’m better, something happens, like a big snow storm and I shovel my 82 year old dad’s drive out. I suck a bunch of cold air and end up very sick again. I’m on my third cycle of this thing and it would be easy to believe I’m missing God, if his voice were not so plain.

But how can this be God? If he wants this city reached, why would he allow me to be stopped by sickness for so long? I don’t know, but it is part of the journey and I know where it is going. You might be on a journey someday that has just as many unanswerable questions, but if you read my own story and pay attention to every step of the way, like the back surgery and loss of job that put me on this path, then you will know this is not uncommon. (Not uncommon at all.)

So I have prepared a treat for you. A glimpse of what I believe God has shown me is coming. It has not happened yet but it is the direction I am “slowly” moving. My journey has made progress, even progress the story has not revealed yet, and the ups and downs are so important! The prayers prayed or not prayed are so important if you are to really understand! So are you bored with the story? Or does the thought of being a true Caped Crusader, Capped in God’s Covering scare you? Is it a price you’re not willing to pray, so you want no knowledge of it? Actually, it might not be as bad as you think. God is good, and with his assignments come a ton of grace. Even to hear such a call as, “My Gotham needs me!”

So here is your glimpse. I have created another blog site. It is only a “Prototype”, not in effect yet. I’m sure it is not a perfect picture of the whole vision yet, but I have strong reason to believe this is where God is taking me in my effort to do my part in saving my city. I’m a nobody who dares to believe God can even use me. He will decide how big or small it becomes, but if you would like to see the vision that has come, while I have walked the streets of downtown and prayed prayers and sought God, then you can see what I currently have at 1000housesofhope.wordpress.com

“Do you have your Gotham?” > Chapter Eight

THE ENCOUNTER III > This story is written as if fictional, but it is not, I’m living this every day. This is one man’s attempt to take up the mantle of being a caped crusader for God. I am caped in God’s Covering, and Indianapolis is my city. God says, My Gotham needs me.

Chapter Eight

The next time Don rode the bus back into downtown, he was ready, blog site cards in his pocket, and wouldn’t you know, it just happened a Christian Ladies Convention was in the city. Coming up an escalator he found the Panera Bread with a line backed clear out the door! “What in the world is going on?” He saw Bibles and Christian books in hands and on tables. In no time at all he had discovered an opportunity to hand out blog site cards, and so he did, but this was not really his target audience.

He only handed out a few before finding himself back in the Garden Center, sitting on a bench and watching all the moving people again. “What is it, Lord? What’s the next step? How do I reach those people? The ones not already carrying Bibles in their hands.”

He looked at his possible points of employment he had written down. As of yet he had applied at none, but it had to be downtown. Starbucks? Chick-fil-A? Subway? These were the main possibilities. If he wanted to meet people, and make connections, food offered his best chances. He was a little nervous about being the old man amongst so many young people, but he decided he could play the role of “grandpa” if needed, for surely that is how he would be seen.

“Time to get some more prayer power going,” he concluded.

Don was actively involved in a small church of around forty people, but he also had a close friend in another church who had asked him to join them for early morning 6:00a.m., Tuesday morning prayer. Now he had tried to get a prayer group going at his church, but so far it just wasn’t working, and here was another church asking him to join them, and so he would. It would not be easy at 6:00 a.m., a definite sacrifice, but Batman had his way to save a city, and so does the caped crusaders of God.

“Can’t get too much prayer. This has got to be soaked in prayer. I need your creative wisdom, Lord. I need my steps ordered of you supernaturally. People are tired of the same old kind of out reaches. Got to be something different, fresh, new, exciting, and especially anointed! My blog site is ready. I have this tool but it is not enough of itself. I don’t have the whole picture yet.”

Thinking about his own prayer time that morning, “What about Chris, Lord? Why did he come to mind when I was praying today? I haven’t seen that young man in at least two years. I wonder what he is doing now? Still selling insurance? You want me to find him? Hhmmm, I don’t know. He moved way out east and northward somewhere. Facebook? You want me to try facebook again? DO I HAVE TOO? Okay.”

Another manhunt. A connection lost in time. God’s bounty hunter would hunt and find as the pieces of the puzzle slowly come together. Soon…many pieces are about to fall, but first…more prayers.
