Our Cocooning World

Please God, Talk to Me

​On "Criminal Minds" one of the stars tells a priest, "Where was God when I needed Him when I was thirteen years old!" How many times have you said that in your mind when you have prayed to God? 


In "In Touch - Daily Reading for Devoted Living on October 6, 2017 the title was: "When God is Silent" ​ the sentence that popped out in

my mind was - "However, He wants us to have an intimate relationship with Him that is independent of how He responds to our prayers - we must love Him just because He is God.  Consider the basis of your love for the Lord, and ask Him to help you make it unconditional." John 11:1-27

​Then during Joel Osteen's church program on TV on October 9th Osteen reminded us that, "Favor (of God) doesn't leave you." We must continue to thank God for His favor whether He is answering our prayers or not because that is where the unconditional love of God comes in. It is difficult for a thirteen year old to realize that because faith can be very shaky when we are children.  Think about where you are today with your faith. How do you pray? Are you taking the time to be still and listen for God's voice?

​In Acts 2: 20-21 "The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."  After reading this message I invite you to say, "Lord, God come into my heart and soul so that I may hear you and learn about you. I will be still and know that you are God."
