a prayer He will answer "yes" to
so today we read about Eutychus, who puts the "falls" into "falls asleep". he falls out of a window to his death! after falling asleep during a boring sermon.
this emphasizes to me the humanness of the people in the Bible. the writers never shirk from portraying people with all their faults and blemishes... and falling asleep during a sermon is very human!
it's very cool that the Bible does this, because it helps us realize that the Bible is not about super people, far removed from our own experience. it's about humans like us, who were touched by God in profound ways.
He is waiting to touch every single one of us in a profound way. He wants to touch YOUR life profoundly. will you let Him? all you have to do... literally... is ask.
God, please touch my life in a profound way today.
