A Church with a Heart for our Community

July 11th Wednesday

Good morning to you…and greetings in the name of the ‘Lily of the Valley’, Jesus Christ – THE Risen Saviour. I trust that you enjoyed your weekend and early week…and that God surprised you with unexpected blessings, divine appointments, and supernatural discoveries. Today I will be praying for you, asking Father to release a message or an insight or a miracle to you that you will recognize and be able to respond to.

I have experienced the reality of an insight that I have been sharing whenever it is necessary: to err is human, to really foul things up you need a computer. I have had a problem with internet connections and since our telephone service is dependent upon the internet I have had several mornings when I am incommunicado. It is awkward and frustrating and sometimes…a blessing. However it has affected my ability to be get this ‘blog’ done. 

I had an interesting conversation with a technician yesterday. He assisted me and troubleshooted the connections and equipment, eventually restoring service. He gave me an email contact so that if I have further problems, I can contact him directly without waiting through the telephone queue. Now that was very kind but…if the internet is not available how do I send an email?

This is why I really value the Bible and God’s instructions…in moments when you are frustrated, needing some advice and direction, His words to us are: This GOD’s Message, the God who made earth, made it livable and lasting, known everywhere as GOD: ‘Call to me and I will answer you. I will tell you marvelous and wonderful things that you could never figure out on your own.’  Jeremiah 33:2-3  The Message. The best thing of all there is no ‘queue’, no busy signal, no connection problems, and  servive technician is always available…Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of wordless sighs, our aching groans…and keeps us present before God.  Romans 8:26-27  The Message.

And…I know it works!! I have tried it out many, many times. May God smile upon you today!
