Susan walks into the room with tears flowing down her face. Ben stands up and asks, what’s going on? Susan can hardly speak, I was eavesdropping, and overheard your conversation. My heart was overwhelmed by the fact that I have not been available for my family or God due to my self-absorbed state of  self- pity. I have been covering up my feelings with alcohol and worry. Ben, I am so sorry, God, I am so sorry, please forgive me. The tears flow and lead a trail all the way to the pond, and the stranger pales.

Here There And Everywhere

There’s a muffled sound in the next room, both men turn their heads to the noise. They ignore it, and go on with their conversation. The plain fact is trust is experienced in a relationship with your Father. How do I have a relationship with someone who’s not even here? Oh, he’s here, and he’s always been there even when you thought he wasn’t. How do you know that Ben asks? I know him personally, and so do you, just not very well yet. Here, and there, and , everywhere says the stranger.

Silence Screams

You have been praying, and God has been listening. Now is the time for you to gather up your mess, put it in a bundle, package it up, and hand it off to God. How do you do that? It’s simple, you ask him to take it. That’s it, that’s all I have to do, that doesn’t make sense. It will never make sense as long as you try to make sense out of it. Sense won't get you to faith, but trust will. How do I get trust, Ben asks. The silence screams!

It’s Sunday morning, there’s a knock at the door, as Ben peers through the half-opened door, he realises he doesn't know this person. May I help you, the stranger replies, are you Ben Strong? Yes, I have been asked to speak with you concerning your legal situation. Ben hesitates, come on in and directs him to his office. He is very curious what this stranger may want, as well as who he is. Have a seat, the stranger sits and peers at Ben with a stair-like he has never seen before. The stranger speaks and Ben listens as if there is no one else in the world. What is this magnetic lure, and who sent him?

The bullies are out in force, the bill collectors are  knocking but nobody's home. Susan, we need to talk, I have been going over our bank account, it’s practically exhausted. With all of the attorney fees as well as the current expenditures at Strong we are in desperate need of a money infusion or we will be underwater soon.  I see, let’s pray. Now thru the cold wind of finance, a warm breath of fresh air begins to circulate. Fiery thoughts command a cooling of fear to extinguish the doubt that God can help. The fire burns!

When the wind blows you never see it, but it can change the tide of the wave of influence in its way. Ben and Susan sits down at the table and begins to talk. There’s something going on says Ben, and I’m not quite sure what it is. Susan replies, I know I’m feeling it too. It seems like it all started when I began to pray. Ben says that’s odd I was thinking the same thing. Maybe there is something to this God thing after all. Susan agrees, smiles and says can we pray together? Ben says sure, they hold hands and begin to pray. The fire at the pond begins to ignite as if someone had poured gasoline on it.
