About 18 years ago, I needed to talk to an older person, someone full of wisdom and guidance. I prayed for God to send me to the right person. I felt lead to go to a certain nursing home, I went in and walked down the hall until I felt the Lord leading me into the right room. I went in and there was a really old woman, she seemed to be asleep so I got on my knees in front of her and was so thankful to get to tell someone all my troubles and have a listening ear. She wasn't asleep so I started to talk to her but before I got much out she said to me, " Honey, I can't hear a word you say to me but I have a message for you. Know your Maker. Know Him, honey. Know Him." I let her pat me over and over and I patted her back ... she only said those words to me ... finally I had to leave. I went out to my car and asked God to help me know Him. I have spent the last 18 years in the most beautiful fellowship ... knowing Father and Jesus Christ whom He has sent! John 17:3 Imagine, my answer was not in me talking but in me listening!!!
