On a Saturday night several weeks ago, this pastor
was working late, and decided to call his wife before he left for home. It was
about 10:00 PM, but his wife didn't answer the phone. The pastor let it ring
He thought it was odd that she didn't answer,
but decided to wrap up a few things and try again in a few minutes. When he
tried again she answered right away. He asked her why she hadn't answered
before, and she said that it hadn't rung at their house. They brushed it off as
a fluke and went on their merry ways.
The following Monday, the pastor received a call at the church office,
which was the phone that he'd used that Saturday night.
The man that he spoke with wanted to know why he'd called on Saturday
night. The pastor couldn't figure out what the man was talking about. Then the
man said, "It rang and rang, but I didn't answer." The pastor remembered the
mishap and apologized for disturbing him, explaining that he'd intended to call
The man said, "That's OK. Let me tell you my story. You see, I was
planning to commit suicide on Saturday night, but before I did, I prayed, 'God
if you're there, and you don't want me to do this, give me a sign now.' At that
point my phone started to ring. I looked at the caller ID, and it said,
'Almighty God.' I was afraid to answer!"
The reason why it showed on the man's caller ID that the call came from
"Almighty God" is because the church that the pastor attends is called Almighty
The most important thing you can do is to get as close to GOD
as you can. Everything else is like a dream that doesn't matter after you wake
up. -- The Reluctant Messenger http://reluctant-messenger.com
