SHIM'ON שִׁמְעוֹן SIMEON




August 2011; Columbus, Ohio


     As I searched my entire office, a growing sense of panic started to rise up strangling rational thought! My cell phone is GONE. Oh no! There is no money for anything, let alone a replacement cell phone! Then it hit me. As a Believer this feeling of panic should not be occurring. I immediately sat down and started to pray. I prayed for peace; for the Ruach to send me the Comforter, the “Shalom That Passes All Understanding”. As soon as I was calm and felt true shalom (Wholeness, Wellness, Completeness, Peace), I started praying that I would be allowed to find my cell phone. I also prayed to be at peace if I did not find my cell phone. I prayed that no matter whether things turned out good or bad that I would give YAH the glory and understand that somehow HE will work things for good. After prayers it was time for action. The phone must have been dropped somewhere during my usual six mile walk. Break out the bicycle! There is 6 miles of road and sidewalk to search in a hurry!


     I mounted the bike and peddled a steady 15 to 20 miles per hour. All of a sudden on a quiet road, I heard a very clear and loud voice say: "Here" I plainly heard it and immediately obeyed. I quit peddling, coasted and changed my visual search to a wide scan search of the grass in the yard next to where I had stopped. Instantly I saw a flash of sunlight reflected off metal. Immediately I hit the brakes, but it took 20 feet to stop. When I turned around and walked back, I was in shock to see my cell phone laying dull black side up in tall grass, barely visible. What had flashed as I went by? I immediately started quietly singing praises and thanks to YAH. One phone call and I knew that the cell phone was working just fine.


This event occurred five years ago. Going blind, business gone, no money, near homeless, alone.

YAH was teaching me that we are to trust only HIM, and NOTHING else!

Psalm 62 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)


62 (0) For the leader. Set in the style of Y’dutun. A psalm of David:


2 (1) My soul waits in silence for God alone;

my salvation comes from him.

3 (2) He alone is my rock and salvation,

my stronghold; I won’t be greatly moved.


4 (3) How long will you assail a person

in order to murder him, all of you,

as if he were a sagging wall

or a shaky fence?


5 (4) They only want to shake him from his height,

they take delight in lying —

with their mouths they bless,

but inwardly they curse. (Selah)


6 (5) My soul, wait in silence for God alone,

because my hope comes from him.

7 (6) He alone is my rock and salvation,

my stronghold; I won’t be moved.


8 (7) My safety and honor rest on God.

My strong rock and refuge are in God.

9 (8) Trust in him, people, at all times;

pour out your heart before him;

God is a refuge for us. (Selah)

10 (9) Ordinary folks are merely a breath

and important people a sham;

if you lay them on a balance-scale, they go up —

both together are lighter than nothing.

11 (10) Don’t put your trust in extortion,

don’t put false hopes in robbery;

even if wealth increases,

don’t set your heart on it.


12 (11) God has spoken once, I have heard it twice:

strength belongs to God.

13 (12) Also to you, Adonai, belongs grace;

for you reward all as their deeds deserve.
