Can You Tell me Who ??
Can You Tell Me Who? - - -
(My True Story)
As a young mother, I was surprised when my telephone rang
and a radio station identified themselves as a quiz program; explained what the
call was about, asked my name and requested for me to hold for a moment.
The Master of Ceremonies was chipper as he came on and told
me that there was a nice prize available if I could correctly answer the
question - - he paused then asked.
Who was Abraham Lincoln’s Secretary of War?
History was something I studied for the test, and then
promptly forgot about it.Had I been a
current school girl with studies about the Government, I probably would have
remembered the name, but instead I mumbled, I am sorry but I don’t know the
The MC acknowledged his sorrow, but said that as an
alternative for the nice prize, the advertiser was sending me some free samples
of their product in the mail.
If only I had thought to give my maiden name, I would have
won the grand prize.The answer was
Edwin Stanton.That name Stanton had actually
crossed my mind, but I considered it not a good answer, brushed it off and lost
by not paying attention to recall and the inward voice of the Holy Spirit.
Often a hunch will give good direction when you listen to
it.Actually I prefer not to call it a hunch
or a premonition, but I believe God speaks to us in that still small voice
giving insight when we will stop and tune in.
Actually the prize I might have won was not that great!
Can you remember being disappointed at the prize in the
Cracker Jack box?
Paul reminded us to strive for the grand prize of heaven
which will be presented to all who finish their race.We will NOT be disappointed with our reward.
2 Timothy 4:8Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the
Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but
unto all them also that love his appearing.
