Recently I was talking with a woman who has a long-term illness. She was telling me she is tired of the illness, tired of being sick, and fed up with the medicine, the treatment and the limitations. I asked her, "Have you told God how you feel?"
"Can I do that?" she asked.
"You're already thinking it, aren't you?"
Why is it that we think (1) We can't talk to God about anything and everything and (2) He doesn't know what we're thinking? God wants to talk to us about whatever is on our minds - even if it is just the weather. Jesus will sit and have a chat with us or take a walk with us. He is always available.
The Psalmist says: You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord.
What an awesome thing it is to have the Almighty know us that well. And there is nowhere we can run or hide to get away from him. You hem me in - behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. . . Where can I flee from your presence?
He's not too busy. He's not far away. Call him.
I started this website and blog on May 1, 2012. I am a Catholic who has been in ministry for many years. I first developed what I would call a close relationship with Jesus in the early 1970s. Ever since then I have been praying with people for healing and other needs. It is because I have seen so many of these prayers answered that I am so bold as to offer to pray for you individually through this website and phone line.
