[what would you do if God was right there?]
We sat and talked about being real with God. Being brutally honest in our feelings when we’re praying (the example we were using was Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane when He asked if the cup can be taken away from Him, although I was thinking about Job yelling all those questions at God)…
As we shared our feelings, one of the guys said, “Well, if God were right here right now, you probably wouldn’t be talking like that, about being ‘brutally honest’ and talking about how you can get mad at God… And He’s with us all the time, so He’s here too.”
I listened and thought, “If He were physically here right now, right here, I probably wouldn’t talk… I’d just come, lean my head on his shoulder and rest. No words would be needed.” I’d just sit and be content and no decisions would have to be made. Simply rest. Shalom.
I’d just sit and be content and no decisions would have to be made.
I’d appreciate prayers for health because I am still struggling for breath and although it has been gone for a couple of days (mainly because this Sunday I took the “Day of Rest” quite literally – went to church, came home, and went to bed to sleep away most of the day), it’s back again.
