A MID-WEEK BOOST OF HOPE - “HOW GODWINKS TICK”
“At a BARGAIN STORE I bought a CLOCK for $5.99 that was supposed to say Bible verses ON THE HOUR!
We put batteries in but when the hour came… NOTHING… no verse, no chime, nothing.
I sighed, left it on the kitchen table, and went to the sunporch to PRAY about our annual 1000-mile DRIVE BACK to Florida. I asked God to CALM my ANXIETIES.
Suddenly I heard a VOICE!
IT SAID, ‘For I know the plans I have for you … PLANS TO GIVE YOU HOPE and a future. Jeremiah 29:11’
What?!! The clock TALKED!
BUT NEVER AGAIN. Just enough for our great God to send me that special MESSAGE OF COMFORT just when I needed it."
I guess, Barbara, we can say ... that's how Godwinks tick!”
I like to paraphrase a 16th century philosopher, William Temple, who said:
When I pray Godwinks happen.
When I don’t, they don’t.
Shall we give it a try?
May you have wondrous Godwinks til the end of time.
