A desire to date: have you ever felt that? If so, I hope this text can help you understand it better. Before you read this, I would like you to know: this post is not a complete and definitive manual about this subject and how to deal with this.
On April 28, 1988, flight 243 of Aloha Airlines from Hilo to Honolulu would become one of the most famous accidents in the history of aviation. At approximately 7300 meters of altitude, the flight was proceeding as normal when, suddenly, part of the plane’s structure in the first class section was wrenched off, leaving a hole nearly 6 meters long on its fuselage (pictured) and dozens of passengers exposed to the open air. Despite these conditions the pilot managed to land the aircraft at a nearby airport with only one victim, a flight attendant who was launched out of the plane.
I heard preaching some months ago that touched me deeply. Among many things, I was touched by hearing so many times that we are running out of time. We cannot waste it. Yes, we’re young, but this doesn’t mean we have time to spare.

It may seem obvious, but sometimes we take too long to understand our real and vital need to do so. Very often we feel an overwhelming void when we consider ourselves lost, when the situation is out of our control, or when we face something we don’t know how to overcome. And yet, we postponed all these sufferings with our reasoning, which turns out to make us slaves of the situation.
Best friends always have a good story to tell, don’t they? Generally, the closer the friendship, the more detailed their story is. In the same way, all genuine Christians have a story with God and know exactly the special moment when God became real to them. What about you, do you remember your story with God? Through this series, you are going to be given an opportunity to have a new story with the Lord!
BUT JESUS DECLARED “ SOMEONE TOUCHED ME, FOR I KNOW THAT POWER HAS GONE OUT OF ME” (LUKE 8:46)
Jesus was surrounded by people. The crowds followed and touched him the whole time. However, one touch made him stop. “But Jesus declared: who touched me?”. The disciples even tried to explain him that the crowds were around him but he insisted on asking “ Who touched me? ” It was not just one touch.
