Ryan’s Miracle Watch 9/26/18

When you get to be my age, you have to get all sorts of exams and check-ups, and just some really uncomfortable and annoying stuff done to the body. Well, today I had a prostate exam; a rather unpleasant experience, to put it mildly. So, after the doctor left, the nurse walked in, closed the door behind her and whispered three words no man ever wants to hear…”Who was that?”

Ryan and I have started watching a series on Amazon Prime called “Jack Ryan”, starring John Krasinski. I’m having a difficult time thinking of him as any character other than Jim Halpert…

I believe I’ve said this before, but I’ll say it again anyway…because if I can’t remember whether or not I said it, chances are I’ll forget that I said it again and won’t really care…Anyway, I wish I could be a weatherman. Every morning, I look to see what the weather is going to be like for the day and days to come. It changes daily. Three days ago, it said today’s high was going to be in the 90’s. Two days ago, it said it was supposed to be in the mid 70’s. Yesterday, it said it was supposed to be in the low-mid 80’s. It was actually 89. I’d love to get paid lots of money to basically make things up that may or may not occur…

Thanks for listening. Hope you’re having a wonderful week on and with purpose!

  1. Bret, Here’s something I read in my devotional written by someone named Gari Meacham.
    Matthew 7:7 “Jesus uses action words to describe the essence of prayer: ask, seek and knock. I’ve pondered these words for decades and have come to realize that asking prompts us, seeking confuses us and knocking just plain irritates us! The question is why did Jesus use these words as a prayer model? What not just stop at “Ask and it shall be given to you”? Perhaps the maturity and strength of faith come in the seeking and the knocking.
    In times of struggle it may seem like God has gone radio-silent…crickets…no response and no fuzzy messages of hope. But rest assured, He hasn’t forgotten us or ignored our seeking and knocking prayers. He’s simply creating the perfect circumstances, timing and posture to display our heart’s desire. Soon our seeking and knocking will turn to knowing and praising — and we’ll be wiser and more faithful because of it.”
