01262016 Something’s Missing & Fun, Unusual, Almost Forgotten

Remember when you grew up and moved out? Afterward, your mom would call you and tell you how quiet the house was. It wasn’t the same type of quiet as when you were away at a friends house, or at a camp. No, it was different. It was as if the spirit of the place changed. We all know about “presence.” Something was missing.
It’s like that prodigal son that moves away and spends all his money. He has to go hungry to understand the missing presence of his father. Remarkably, you too can get back to feeling the presence of your Heavenly Father if you’ve gone missing from Him. Psalm 63:1 describes the process:
“You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.” Psalm 63:1 (NIV)
If you need to feel Him, stop and realize your hunger. Stop and earnestly seek Him. Open a Bible. Sing a song. It may take 5 minutes, 5 hours, or 5 days but you’ll get to the point where you’ll say “He’s my comfort, he’s my healin’ this I know.”

PrayerWorks:
Back Pain – I am almost 70 and live alone and do not have a car and my back is giving me trouble. I need to be able to care for myself. Please pray The Lord Jesus heals my back and keeps it from slipping out of place. Thank you. God bless you!

From protecting my family to keeping my job from moving me to another place, to finding my lost ring. always know that God answer your prayers! What makes this experience is really exciting. Thank you God! I need your wisdom daily!

Fun, Unusual, Almost Forgotten:

Something to Learn – I find it fascinating when the Apple Watch was introduced, a news reporter asked Apple President, Tim Cook, about product details. Tim Cook kept responding by focusing on the consumer and the value of the product for the user. Throughout the interview Mr Cook never lost his focus… or his message. Something to be learned?
