COME, SEE A MAN !... "In A Flash"

Ever wonder if God even hears our prayers? Or sees our efforts? Or understands our battles? Our need and desire for His presence?

Sitting at my altar one night I talked to God about just that. I was tired from the struggles at my job, I was weary with the warfare from the devil and just really wanting a confirmation from Jesus that all was well and I was doing as He willed.

And truly, just needing to feel His hand upon me as I wept. I told him how much I loved Him, wanted to make Him smile and wanted to be with HIM.

Sitting quietly I was suddenly moved to lift my head and in the corner of my eye I saw something. A subtle flash. And another and then another.

It was coming from inside a basket on shelf below the television. For a moment all I could do was stare. What was it?

I watched as it flashed on and off as if in Morse code. And finally, I had to investigate.

I got up and reached for the basket. Digging through the change, screws, loose keys and other odd-ball junk... there it was.

I used it regularly at the warehouse. It was the perfect size for my pocket, and the thing just quit!

An old and forgotten BROKEN flash light... I tossed in the basket months ago... that I hoped to fix one day.

After all this time... and all by itself... it flashed on... and flashed off... flashed on... and flashed off... inside the bottom of the basket. Yes, ALL BY ITSELF.

God? Is that you?

Of course it was. And my spirit leaped with joy!

Who needs a giant lighthouse on the sea when all that's needed is hope and a cheap broken flashlight in the bottom of a basket?

And by the way... that flashlight, even after many major attempts to repair... never saw the light again.
