The Flying Kitten
Dwight Nelson recently told a true story about the pastor of his church.
He had a kitten that climbed up a tree in his backyard and then was 
afraid to come down. The pastor coaxed, offered warm milk, etc. The 
kitty would not come down. 
The tree was not sturdy enough to climb, so the pastor decided that if 
he tied a rope to his car and drove away so that the tree bent down, he 
could then reach up and get the kitten.
He did all this, checking his progress in the car frequently, then 
figured if he went just a little bit further, the tree would be bent 
sufficiently for him to reach the kitten. 
But as he moved a little further forward, the
rope broke. The tree went "boing!" and the kitten instantly sailed 
through the air -- out of sight.
The pastor felt terrible. He walked all over the neighborhood asking 
people if they'd seen a little kitten. No. Nobody had seen a stray 
kitten. So he prayed, "Lord, I just commit this kitten to your 
keeping," and went on about his business.
A few days later he was at the grocery store, and met one of his church 
members. He happened to look into her shopping cart and was amazed to see
cat food. Now this woman was a cat hater and everyone knew it, so he 
asked her, "Why are you buying cat food when you hate cats so much?"
She replied, "You won't believe this," and told him how her little girl 
had been begging her for a cat, but she kept refusing. Then a few days
before, the child had begged again, so the Mom finally told her little 
girl, "Well if God gives you a cat, I'll let you keep it."
She told the pastor, "I watched my child go out in the yard, get on her 
knees, and ask God for a cat. And really, Pastor, you won't believe 
this, but I saw it with my own eyes. A kitten suddenly came flying out 
of the blue sky, with its paws outspread, and landed right in front of her."
Never underestimate the Power of God!

"Neither doctrinal purity nor diligent labor will ever be a substitute for passionate devotion to God."
