Advent 3 – Saturday

Advent3 Saturday

 

I will cry with all my heart; Lord hear me

I will keep your statutes.

I  call upon you, save me

and I will do your will.

Psalm 119:45-46

 

There once was a man who was diagnosed with a terminal disease. There were only two doctors in his country who knew how to treat it.  When he made his appointment to see the doctor the nurse told him that he had to be on time for his appointment and that if he was late, he wouldn’t be able to see the doctor for another six months.

Well, the day of the appointment came. The man left a half hour early so that he’d be sure to be there on time. Low and behold as he got onto the expressway, there was an accident ahead of him which stopped the traffic altogether. Finally the traffic cleared and he was on his way to his appointment but not without a few stressful moments.

He pulled up to the building, but he could not find a place to park. His appointment was at 10:00 and it was now 9:55. He was desperate. In his desperation he cried out to God.  He said, “God, if you’re up there, please help me. I need to find a parking spot right now. If you give me a parking place, I promise you, I’ll go back to church. I’ll give to the poor and I’ll be good and not sin, ever again.”

As soon as the words came out of his mouth a car pulled out of a space right in front of the doctor’s office allowing the man to pull in and park.  But as soon as he saw the car pulling out, he cried out to God again and said, “Never mind God, I’ve got my own parking place.”

Some things never change. I believe God answers our prayers far more than we ever know or acknowledge.
