I talk to God a lot, but lately, our talks have been juicer than ever!
The best part of my day is when I get a little quiet time and vibe with God. I don’t know how many of my readers believe in God or praise a higher being, but I couldn’t picture my life any other way.
I need to know that there is someone out there that’s better than us!
I go to him on my darkest days, and I do the same on my good days. In fact, on my good days, I can’t stop sending God praise and thanking him for all that he has done and for what he hasn’t done.
When I was a child, I was taught not to go to God with selfish prayers. And to make sure I am specific. So, of course, I would begin by saying, “God, I’m sorry if this comes across as selfish…..BUT!
I already messed up.
So then I would correct myself and say, “Lord, you know my heart, and I’m not a selfish person….BUT!
Over the years, I’ve stopped asking for anything in my prayers, and I talk. And boy, oh boy, that is harder than it seems. It took me 40 years to get it right.
I’ve learned that if I’m quiet, I can hear his words. For instance, before we moved into our current home, I prayed, and I prayed that he would lead us to the location that was perfect for us. I searched high and low for two years and traveled for hours after dropping my kids off for school.
As I looked for homes, I grew more and more frustrated because everything needed significant upgrades. And we all know how pricey that can get.
So after one frustrating day of looking, I fell to my knees and said, “God, I’m tired and don’t know what to do.”
And just as clear as day is long, I heard him say, “I’m preparing your land”.
The next day my realtor said I forgot to show you the new homes being built in a brand new neighborhood.
My mind went immediately to “I’m preparing your land.”
Now let me fast forward to today’s discussion.
I was in the bathtub and having my long-winded conversation with God. I was telling him about a situation that is tearing at my heart. When I reached the end of our talk, he said, “Do you trust me”?
I said, “of course I do”.
I ended my conversation right then and there.
When you trust someone, you believe that they hear you and do what’s best for you. It may not be what you want, but it’s precisely what you need.
Lord, I trust you!
