Event 1, Walking Dry

11 Iyar 5771, 15 May 2011, Columbus, Ohio


Start corner N Stygler Rd & Agler Rd. Walk north on Stygler Rd to Morse Rd. Turn east on Morse Road to N. Hamilton Rd. Turn south onto N Hamilton Rd. End 1111 N. Hamilton Rd. Dry!


January 2010, by the intervention of the Ruach, I quit smoking and was healed of macular degeneration, but experienced chest pain. Having smoked two packs a day most of my life, I feared lung cancer. It’s a long story, not for now, but suffice it to say that there was no money and no insurance. The macular was healed but the cataracts still needed attention. Same story. No money and no insurance! The Ruach said, “walk!”, so I did and still do. Back then, going cataract blind, it was walk or the bus! Slowly the range was increased to 6 miles in two hours, and to this day that is the regimen, morning prayer and then 6 miles of Walk-N-Pray.


On Friday the sixth of May 2011, I met with a friend for coffee. About 2:00 pm I left to walk north on Stygler road, then East on Morse road and then south on N. Hamilton road for an important meeting, again over coffee. As I reached the upper section of Stygler road, it was starting to sprinkle.


I prayed:

"Dear YAH, I really do not feel like walking through the rain and appearing at the meeting soaking wet. Somehow YAH, please don't let it rain, but if it does rain, please keep me dry or have someone stop and give me a ride. Then again YAH your rain has caused the beautiful green grass and flowers that I can still see, so if I am to get soaking wet, I thank you for rain that gives us beautiful flowers and lush green grass."


   Slowly as I walked north on Stygler, I noticed that the street was getting slick with water. Not seeing well it took a while to realize that it was raining, hard! Soon I noticed that water was starting to run in the street. I asked myself: "With that volume of water washing the street, why am I completely dry?" I carried an umbrella, which I DID NOT have open and yet I was completely dry. I stopped walking to take a closer look. All of a sudden I realized that the line of young trees I was walking under formed a tight umbrella which completely shielded me from the rain. It was raining hard, not just a mist and yet none of the rain touched me! None!


  I was in awe watching the actual answer to prayer play out. YAH had answered my prayer keeping me dry under this mile of his umbrella of young trees. But wait! Am I now to get wet? Up ahead I could see that the young trees would end and I would be forced to walk unprotected into the rain. As I reached the limit of the young trees, the rain stopped. I literally stood in the open, trying to assess how wet I was going to get and watched the rain STOP. So now I walked, dry, into the open with no rain. I spent the rest of the walk (45 minutes) marveling and saying prayers of thanksgiving for the small gift of being dry. I also was saying prayers of thanksgiving for answered prayer. I also was slowly learning to trust YAH in all things no matter how small.


January, 2010 as I struggled to be obedient and quit smoking, in prayer I heard –The VOICE-:

"How deeply are you going to trust me?"


What message did I take away from this actual event?

I pray for the big things in my life, but do I trust YAH for even the little things? To deeply, deeply trust YAH for even the small things! "Pray UNCEASINGLY" Give thanks, praise and prayer!

16. And be joyful always.

17. And pray without ceasing.

18. And in everything be thankful: for this is the will of Elohim in Y’shua the Mashiyach concerning you.

19. Quench not the Spirit.

23. Rather, what I did order them was this: ‘Pay attention to what I say. Then I will be your Elohim, and you will be my people. In everything, live according to the way that I order you, so that things will go well for you.’
