- I love watching a plan of God take place. how he puts a dot here and there and then he slowly connects them to form a bigger picture. That is how our life is. Everybody's life is a dot in God's big picture, and sometimes he puts smaller ones inside of it. We all have a reason to be here. God knows what he has stored for us, and for us to find out we just have to go with the flow and see where God has placed us.
- This week God has been showing me that I shouldn't worry about tomorrow. As Jesus says in Matthew 6:31,32
If I look ahead for what we'll be doing in June all of it is just stuffed with so much stuff it can be overwhelming, but if I look ahead at just today my life is not being flooded. Because things will change. For example: Trips will be canceled, Prices go up, People move, and a million other things. But we need to just let that stuff go.
- Title "God, can I ask you a question?"
Me:God, can I ask you a question?
Me:Promise you won't get mad?
Me:Why did you let so much stuff happen to me today?
God:What do you mean?
Me:Well, I woke up late.
Me:My car took forever to start.
Me:At lunch they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait.
Me:On the way home my phone went dead just as I picked up a call.
Me:And on top of all that, when I got home I just wanted to soak my feet in my new foot massager and relax, but it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did you do that?
God:Well, let me see. The Death Angel was at your bed this morning and I had to send one of the other angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.
GOD:I didn't let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.
God:The person who made your first sandwich today was sick and I didn't want you to catch what he has. I knew youcouldn't afford to miss work.
God:Your phone went dead because the person who was calling was going to give false witness about what you said during that call. I didn't even let you talk to them so that you would be covered.
Me:(softly) I see, God.
God:Oh, and that foot massager had a short that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn't think you wanted to be in the dark.
Me:I'm sorry God.
God:Don't be sorry, just learn to trust me in all things, the good and the bad.
Me:I will trust you.
God:And don't doubt that MY plan for your day is always better than your plan.
Me:I won't, God. And let me just tell you God, thank you for everything today.
God:You're welcome, child. It was just another day being your God, and I love looking after my children.
