My good friend sent this “conversation with God” to me yesterday via email. It really struck a nerve inside me and made me say “OUCH” to myself.
After I soaked in the truth behind these words … and bandaged up my stepped all over toes … I immediately thought of the Francesca Battistelli song, “This is the Stuff”.
So …. it has become today’s Tune in Tuesday song 🙂 I sincerely hope you get as much out of it as I have! Read it slowly and digest the words.
Conversation with God
Me (in a tizzy) : God, can I ask you something?
Me: Promise you won’t get mad?
GOD: I promise.
Me (frustrated): 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 (growling): At lunch, they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait.
GOD: Hmmmm …
Me: On the way home, my phone went dead, just as I picked up a call.
GOD: All right…
Me (loudly): And to top it all off, when I got home, I just wanted to soak my feet in my 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.
Me (humbled): Oh…
GOD: I didn’t let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that might have hit you if you were on the road.
Me (ashamed): …………
GOD: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick and I didn’t want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn’t afford to miss work.
Me (embarrassed): Oh…..
GOD: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to give a false witness about what you said on that call, I didn’t even let you talk to them so you would be covered…
Me (softly): I see God…………
GOD: Oh and that foot massager, it 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.
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.
Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose”
Isaiah 55:8-9, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
