Flicking through an old scrapbook, I spotted a page I'd torn from a copy of Scripture Union's bible fanzine, 'disclosure', featuring a wonderful devotional aid from renowned preacher Reverend Gerald Ambulance:
We asked Rev Gerald Ambulance to bring a prophetic word to really speak into your situation. This is the best he could come up with.Reverend Gerald Ambulance now ministers online at Ship Of Fools. :)
Beloved siblings, I have sought the Lord for a word. I sought him by day and I sought him by night, and then in the morning there he was - everywhere. Just like he always is. So that was worth it.
I covered the subject with much prayer, fasting and transubstantiated communion wine. And lo, as I lay on the kitchen floor, the Lord came to me in a dream, and an infallibly spooky vision was manifest unto me.
And behold I saw a beach, with two pairs of footprints on it. And I said,
'Oh no, not that one again Lord! That is so 'Eighties'. The editor will throttle me.'
And he said, 'Just bear with me, OK?'
'All right,' I said. 'Let me guess. This is my life, yes?'
'You and me walking along together, yes?'
'You got it.'
'Then how is it that at the places when times get hard there is only one set of footprints?'
And the Lord said, 'That, my child, is when we were hopping.'
