18 Oct Always A Connection
It’s frustrating to find oneself waiting an hour or so in an airport and discovering that the airport Internet service costs almost ten dollars for a temporary connection. Savvy travelers usually can save that expense by wandering about the airport to such places as the area in front of the entrance to the airport clubs for their exclusive travelers. They often have free Internet service inside that leaks into the terminal. Other good spots in the terminal are the entrances to airport hotels or the shopping mall areas where some businesses have Wi-Fi for their own business usage.
How grand it is to know there is no fee, ever, for a connection with God. You don’t have to snoop around by going to such places as churches, chapels or some glorious spot in nature. However, we must admit some places seem more conducive for us to recognize God’s presence. I have always loved Psalm 139:7-12, “Whither shall I go from thy spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. If I say, surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. Yea, the darkness hides not from thee; but the night shines as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.”
You don’t have to snoop around anywhere to find God. The connection is always free and always available.
