Day 4 Wednesday
In "Interstellar Calling", by Karina Fabian, we take an all too familiar situation and let God in to do as He wills. I love this story on several levels. First, it shows how painful a single word can be, especially to a teenager. Second, we find that teenager, Frankie, trying to control a rage born of pain, with limited success. Lastly, however, is what I like best. For it is here, when we let God come into that situation that we find something truly special. It isn't about us, our abilities or inabilities, talents or lack of talents that make us useful to God. It is our availability to Him. When we make ourselves available to Him God works the miraculous through us. We see our own short-comings and He becomes our perfection. He takes away our pain as we surrender ourselves to Him and forgive those we feel have hurt us in the same way He has forgiven us. How appropriate that message is at this time of year when we celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus for our sin. For Jesus looked down through the corridors of time, not just at those who stood at the cross 2000 years ago, and prayers, "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do." With this statement we understand the framework in which we as Christians are also to operate. It is the framework of His unmeasurable love.
