Capsule for the Day
PUSH is an acronym for "Pray Until Something Happens". Pray without ceasing St. Paul told the Thessalonians. And Jesus put it this way "pray always so that you do not fall into temptation". The temptation of giving up on God. The temptation of thinking it is over when it is not.
It is hard to keep praying when nothing is apparently happening. We often want a sign, something to assure us that God cares. He hears our prayer. Unfortunately, we don't always get the sign we want. But does that mean there is no sign? The answer is no. There is always a sign.
Let's reason it this way. I want $100.00. My mind is fixed on getting that amount. Someone offers me 50 cents. I throw the 50 cents away. That isn't what I want. But I forget that 50 cents + $99.95 = $100.00. So did God give me a sign? Yes, His Sign, which leads me to His answer.
