I sat still this morning in Germany on Psalm of the day in my journal ‘In the cool of the day’ – Psalm 46:10
“Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honoured among the nations.”
As I am sitting motionless before God – no words or even thoughts, just silence, the movement, words and thoughts will be by the nations honoring God.
It took even my breath away.
Be still today – see what happens to you and the nations.
Telling stories, leading them in prayer, training in evangelism 130 recruits at our GO conference in Germany getting ready to go for 1 and 2 years all around the glob. Wonderful time.
As I prayed for Irene, this keen German girl and her ministry. I told her that I was seeing a picture of a 4″ ear in front of me. She gave out this surprise chuckle. I do sign language for the deaf and she left encouraged.
Can’t wait to see my honey. Pray for us as she flies into Frankfurt and we will be ministering together for 3 weeks in England, Holland, Finland and Germany mobilizing 500 recruits for our July outreach sound the Mediterranean.
A cold chill rushed down my spine. “Where’s my backpack?” I’d just called Jane, my twin sister, to say that I’ve come through arrivals London Gatwick Airport, from Atlanta beginning a 9 week ministry trip to England, Finland, Germany, Holland and India. “Somebody’s taken it.” Just back 5 minutes into the country of my birth. “Bible gone, GPS gone, but worse, my new Ipad2, bought 3 days ago with kind gifts of 3 churches for my special assignment. “Don’t loose it, Richard.” “Keep your head in all situations,” charges Paul, the Apostle, to his young sidekick, Timothy (2 Tim 4:5). Hated calling my honey. Wanted to put it off till tomorrow, but had to tell her the inevitable. As word got out, prayers went up that whoever stole it would bring it back.
Later at my Twin’s home, “I’ll check,” the voice at lost property offered little hope. What do you have in the backback? A Bible, Yes, Heart skipped. SatNav (Americans call it a GPS) That’s here. Heart leaped. Then the big one. My heart stopped. I’m on my way. My ipad? There as well.Thank you Lord, and grateful I did not lose it.
