I claim to be patiently waiting for God to give me some direction at the current fork in the path.  If there are any signs---I am missing them---or perhaps they are written in secret code and I lost my code ring (You YOUNG people will not get that---ask someone over 60).  I am walking in the deep fog of What Do I Do Next? and the light is not penetrating the mist and the fog horn seems to be broken.  HEY---HEY YOU---YES, YOU GOD---I AM DOWN HERE---WAITING!

Perhaps He is busy saving the starving-the abused-the down-trodden-----perhaps the number I took as I began tossing up these prayers is way down the line---perhaps my ear buds have a short ---perhaps I am not hearing what think I should hear---YOU THINK?  All I know is I seem to be on hold---and the gospel music playing as I wait is lovely---BUT after 110 verses of Kum By Yah---my nerves are a little frayed.

All you Saintly Saints that have a direct line and never seem to be out of touch need to give me your secret.  Those of you that have the "Red Phone" which never leaves His side and always know exactly what His plan is for you---could you put in a word for me?  My patience is beginning to fray and it is not a pretty sight.

While in the midst of writing this very post


He sent down the answer---NOT the answer I was expecting---NOT the plan I had formulated----A TOTAL---COMPLETE---surprise.   Upon digesting and reflecting--a wonderful surprise---a TOTALLY Good Use of the gifts and talents He lavished me with   AND the continued building of my Spiritual Legacy and HIS GOOD PURPOSE will continue.  

WOW---blown away AGAIN!

 The plans of the heart belong to man, But the answer of the tongue is from the LORD. 2 All the ways of a man are clean in his own sight, But the LORD weighs the motives. 3 Commit your works to the LORD, And your plans will be established. 4 The LORD has made everything for its own purpose, Even the wicked for the day of evil.
Proverbs 16:1-4


  1. Those BAM moments are so cool, aren't they?

    Just keep doing the next right thing, friend. He does have that sacred way of unfolding the pathway that leads upward ...

  2. ..and..what is the answer? What were expecting? I know you know this..but he truly does hear each and every prayer..I am a firm believer things happen for a reason, oh, it might not be what your expecting..but it is always something better, isn't? Faith is truly a marvel..even when, we as humans do not have it..at times..Blessings


Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
