Today’s Prayer to Passage comes via video content online. I have seen Pastor Rob Bell’s short films and teachings and have been impressed with his work and mission for several years. In the world of weather, I have a deep, spiritual connection to rain. Today I was guided to watch Rob Bell’s short film titled ‘Rain’ and instructed by God to take the passage at 04:22 of the teaching.
I pray, “Dear God, Thank You for continuing to carry us through our storms in life. Thank You for holding us close. All my love, Amen.”
(04:22) “See there is this false, twisted idea out there among religious people that somehow you gotta have it all together to have a relationship with God. That, like, somehow God’s only looking for people who have no problems and have it all nailed down and can put on, like, the happy face all of the time. And yet the Scriptures speak directly against this type of thinking. I mean, Jesus is just straight ahead and He says, ‘Come to me, all you who are weary and heavy laden.'”
