Finding the Faith to Endure

Searching For Lost Signal

My life is now run by satellite.  Forty years ago, we were amazed at the futuristic technology portrayed on Star Trek and James Bond.  The actors were able to go places and accomplish things found only in the daydreams of adventurous screenwriters.  Today, although, we still cannot be teleported to other universes, most of the gadgets have become reality. I have a cell phone, satellite television, a GPS system in my automobile and even an alarm clock that resets itself by satellite.  They are all wonderful inventions until something interrupts the signal.

Steve and I were in the middle of a Law & Order episode one night when the storm clouds rolled in and the most aggravating message scrolled across the screen; “Searching for signal.”  Nothing was wrong with the television, the station was still broadcasting the episode, but we could do nothing to remedy the situation because the receiver could not find the signal.  The same thing happens to my cell phone as I cross the Mackinac Bridge into the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  Suddenly an inverted V appears with an attached rotating cone, frantically searching for the nearest cell tower.  I am no longer connected to the world because the signal has been lost.

So many times traveling the “road of life,” I find myself disconnected and searching for the signal.  Nothing is wrong with God.  The signal is still being broadcasted to the world.  Others are happily connected, but something is preventing me from receiving what God is transmitting.  It may be a storm cloud or the mountains bordering the valley through which I’m traveling.  At other times, I may have drifted too far from the “tower,” all I know is that my heart keeps rotating, searching frantically for the signal. As I continue on the path, like my car’s GPS system, I pick up a sudden voice that says, “Make a U-turn now!”  If I obey that familiar voice, I find myself safely on the right road with the signal coming through clear and strong.

If you find your heart searching for the signal, remember it’s not lost.  There is something merely blocking the reception.  Deuteronomy 4:29 promises, “But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.” Look up, raise your antennae toward Heaven, begin to praise God and soon the signal will be restored.
