The Wireless Connection

Psalm 17:6
I have called upon Thee, for Thou wilt hear me, O God: incline Thine ear unto me and hear my speech.

She was interesting to watch. Twenty-something, and traveling alone, she sank into the black plastic chair in the dining area of the rest stop on the Indiana Turnpike, completely oblivious to the people around her. She appeared totally relaxed and at peace, her computer perched in a familiar pose atop her crossed legs, as her fingers flew across the keyboard.

The young lady typed rapidly for a few minutes, then stopped, her eyes never leaving the screen as she paused. A broad smile broke across her face as she read the words that appeared before her. Again and again she repeated the process. She was obviously communicating with someone on-line. Although that someone was unseen by the rest of us, the young lady was very much enjoying her connection with her friend. She really wasn’t alone after all. How amazing this wireless connection is!

As I watched, I couldn’t help thinking of the great “wireless connection” we have with God the Father. It’s available to us 24/7 through Jesus Christ our Lord, and thankfully, there’s never an interruption in service, never a place where we cannot connect. No matter where we travel, we’re never really alone.

Thank You, Father, for sending Jesus Christ to provide us with a constant connection with You. I pray that the joy of our relationship and the time I spend with You will be evidenced by the smile on my face and the peace in my heart.
