Dark Nights-- God's Light

Monday, February 11th, 2019

1 Timothy 2:1

“Pray for all people, asking God for what they need and being thankful to him.”

Max's Message:

You wonder if it is a blessing or a curse to have a mind that never rests. But you would rather be a cynic than a hypocrite, so you continue to pray with one eye open and wonder: about starving children, about the power of prayer, about Christians in cancer wards.... Tough questions. Throw-in-the-towel questions. Questions the disciples must have asked in the storm. All they could see were black skies as they bounced in the battered boat.... [Then] a figure came to them walking in the water. It wasn't what they expected.... They almost missed seeing the answer to their prayers. And unless we look and listen closely, we risk making the same mistake. God's lights in our dark nights are as numerous as the stars, if only we'll look for them.
