DayBreaks for 12/19/12 – God and My Day
Ever have one of those days when ABSOLUTELY nothing goes according to plan and you are frustrated and maybe upset with God (and the rest of the world) because of either what did, or didn’t happen? I had one of those days today. How timely that it showed up on Facebook (I don’t know who wrote it), but it was a perfect fit for my situation today, and perhaps for you, too!
Me: God, can I ask You a question?
Me: Promise You won’t get mad
God: I promise
Me: Why did You let so much stuff happen to me today?
God: What do u mean?
Me: Well, I woke up late
Me: My car took forever to start
Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait
Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call
God: All right
Me: And on top of it all off, when I got home ~I just want to soak my feet in my new foot massager & relax. BUT it wouldn’t work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did You do that?
God: Let me see, the death angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one
of My 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 would have hit you if you were on the road.
God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick & I didn’t want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn’t afford to miss work.
God: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to give 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 shortage 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 & 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…
PRAYER: I am so self-centered, God, thinking that the cosmos revolves around me and what happens to ME on this single day! Remind me that You are a big, busy God, infinitely wise, knowing the ending from the beginning, and that as far as You are concerned, the cosmos does revolve around me because of Your great love for me and for all Your other children, too! In Your name, Amen.
