    When I kept silence, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy on me. My strength was sapped in the heat of summer. Selah. I acknowledged my sin to you. I didn't hide my iniquity. I said, I will confess my transgressions to Yahweh, and you forgave t...

    Sons and Daughters from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. I had a great Dad who always managed to have hope even in the darkest times. I remember once when I was little, the engine in his car began knocking, and he had no money for parts. So he jacked it up in the yard and pulled the oil pan o...

    Seek Yahweh while he may be found. Call on him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts. Let him return to Yahweh, and he will have mercy on him, to our God, for he will freely pardon. Isaiah 55:6-7 WEB.I am a morning person. I like to get the most impor...

The Pen And The Crackers

  • Therefore don't be anxious, saying, 'What will we eat?', 'What will we drink?' or, 'With what will we be clothed?' For the Gentiles seek after all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first God's Kingdom and his righteousness; and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:31'33 WEB

    One of the sweetest testimonies that I ever heard was from a missionary visiting our church. While she was on an airplane flying out to the mission field, she dug through her purse trying to find a pen to make some notes with, but she couldn't find one. She was hungry because she had not had time to eat before the flight, and they did not serve food on the plane. Normally she carried a pack of crackers with her for such a time, but that day she had none.

    The missionary had brought along one extra bible to give away, and when the plane landed, she started looking for a native to give it to. She eventually found a woman that she could communicate with, and offered her the bible as a gift. The woman burst into tears and explained that she had been praying for a bible for one whole year. The grateful woman then looked through her purse for some money to give, but she only found a pen, and a pack of crackers, which she gave to the missionary.

    If it matters to you, it matters to God. The small things in your life that you would not pray about, He knows about. When we get wrapped up in ourselves, we miss so much of what He has to offer. Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4). Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you (Matthew 6:33). Place the Lord at the center of your life and things like this will automatically begin to happen. He has the pen and the crackers waiting.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I seek Your face and a deeper relationship with You today. I know that You will take care of my needs and fulfill the desires of my heart. Lord I put You first, in the name of Jesus I pray. Amen!

    Note: "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." (2 Chron 7:14) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network
