Hello God experiences? The sudden and thrilling new insight! Those “Oh, yeah, Lord, I get it” moments!

Hello God happenings are those times when you are battered by adversity, overwhelmed by trivia, or lost from meaning, and quite unexpectedly you see the hand of God. You learn. You grow. 

 Many of the devotions in this book were Hello God experiences for me. I hope and pray that each one of them will be the same for you.

I pray that you will be struck by, and confronted with, the awesome reality of God’s presence and His love and grace in your daily life.

My evangelical faith and ecumenical spirit shape these devotions. I don’t believe that those values are antithetical. They have been tested overseas and at home, in every conceivable context, and during over 50 years of Ordained Ministry.

Eleven special subject devotions add to the 366 regular devotions for a total of 377.    

     

    

   


Excerpt

Devotion For December 9

When I buried my dear friend, Chaplain Jim White, I learned lessons important for Advent.

When I arrived at Jim’s home I began to look through his files, to see if he had left instructions. His stuff was together. One learns organization during a career in the Army.

Jim had a file for everything: insurance, allotments and pay, property and investments, wills, and so forth. His living will instructed that every effort be made to donate his organs, and that heroic measures would not be taken if he should become vegetative.
But he had not planned for the quail eggs.

Jim had rigged an incubator and was hatching quail eggs in his office. He raised quail commercially for sale to restaurants and airlines. Quail eggs (all eggs?) have to be turned daily in order for them to hatch. By the time someone noticed the incubator it had been four days.

Jim was a good and honest person, and certainly ready to meet the Lord. His death left a great lesson in preparedness, but also in the frailty of human plans.

Advent reminds us that the world was not ready for the coming of the Messiah. Both religionists and scientists were caught off guard.
In Advent we also remember that the second coming of Christ will be like a thief in the night. Are you ready? You may have done the big-ticket items, but what about the quail eggs?

Hello God!

“Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not expect Him.”
Matthew 24:44

Prayer:
Lord, don’t let me forget the quail eggs, the little things. As I evaluate my spiritual well being during Advent, and prepare my heart for Christmas, help me to be thorough. Amen.

Reader Reviews for "Hello God! a Daily Call to Faith And Worship"

Reviewed by m j hollingshead 5/16/2001
I enjoyed reading your sample devotion. Your writing style is not at all 'preachy' as I have found to be the case in some devotionals. Highly recommended!

Look forward to reading more of your work

Chaplain Hunt's Hello God is more than a devotional book, it is a primer on life. I have gone through it several times in addition to using it as a daily devotional. Recently, I've read the Prayer of Jebez, which has made national magazines and widely read; when I compare the two books, it is not as though it is apples and oranges, it is like day and night; Hello God has depth, insight, inspiration; a wonderful book of theology. Chaplain Hunt's book is a marvelous and inspiring read and I hope that many do so and that even more give Hello God to loved ones, friends, and casual acquaintances: it will make a difference in their lives. A last note; I always appreciate in my reading, the personal effort that an author makes to connect to the reader. Hello God connects.

I am amazed at the consistently great writing in Lamar Hunt's daily devotional book, Hello God! I don't read much except what I find on the computer screen, so it is a real tribute to say that I look forward to my daily devotional with Lamar. I bought the book because Lamar is a friend. I continue to read daily because his work is great! If I could write as well as Lamar does, this would be an excellent review. In fact, I enjoy Hello God so much that I have purchased a dozen copies and have given them to friends. My wife and I each have a copy. She is an avid reader and really enjoys Hello God! I find each devotional different, but all have been of high quality. Some make me think. Some warm my heart. Some challenge me to become better. Some lead me to God. But they all capture my attention and bless me. I a going upstairs right now and read my daily devotional from Hello God!

Hello God! A Daily Call to Faith and Worship. In this outstanding, well-written book Lamar Hunt sounds a clear and certain, and deeply spiritual call to daily worship. Hello God is garnished with anecdotes drawn from a lifetime of living and serving that will greatly enrich the worshipper. This great book reflects the author's down-to-earth simplicity and clarity or writing, reinforced by long experience as a pastor and Army chaplain during peacetime and war.

Lamar Hunt's work clearly reflects his faith, work ethic and love for God and God's children, whom he serves, as I knew him and observed him under combat conditions and since.

Hello God is a liturgical, work of art that should be on the desk of every pastor who faces the continuous challenge of sermon preparation, and on the nightstand of every soul in the pastor's flock that seeks a daily, guided walk with the Lord.
