I have always been interested in the Aha! That time when a thought seems to hit you and it moves from information to a reality. From extrinsic to intrinsic. Theoretical to reality. An Eureka! moment where an abstract becomes actual. God has always spoken to me in those numinous ways. I had been collecting thoughts like this for some time. It started when I had a one-minute daily radio spot almost 45 years ago.
I never forgot those moments that I wrote those radio spots and about 11 years ago I had an opportunity to start again. Not as on radio but this time as a blog. Since then, thousands of people have joined me in a Moment In The Word five days a week.
I trust that God will meet you in the Aha! like he has me. I trust that He will inspire you, give you hope and fill your heart with love as you spend a moment in His word.
