God’s Wonderful Sense of Humor…
I remember being a young girl and taking the church van to Sunday School. I loved coming home in the van afterwards, singing “Yes, Jesus Loves Me” and sucking on lemon drops. I’ll never forget his name, the driver, Mr. Ballard. The memories as vivid as moments ago.
Sometimes, I feel that my spirituality and my relationship with “God” is right on track. Other days, I just feel like we’re not “sync’d up” at all… almost like… “Where are you, God? You there? Hey… it’s me… I’m drowning here… life preserver would be nice about now..” Ever have those days?
I know God gets a big kick out of watching me and my life… my life is really that bizarre! And, today… he exposed his great sense of humor with me in what he provided to me… I could feel him chuckling! It made me laugh at myself and smile all night.
Now, I’m not going to get all “preachy” on you… because many of us have different views of what and/or who “God” is. I respect that. My relationship with God has been on a long and winding road…
Sometimes, I blame him.
Sometimes I praise him.
Sometimes, I am on my knees asking for his wisdom and strength.
Sometimes, I forget him.
Sometimes, I talk to him in the shower.
Sometimes, I laugh at his sense of humor.
Sometimes, I question his will for my life.
Sometimes, I question his existence.
Sometimes, I fall short.
Sometimes, I sin.
But, despite the foregoing, no matter where I am in my relationship with God… one thing remains constant. HE NEVER LEAVES ME. He’s always there for me even when I don’t feel him, even though I can’t see him, and even when I can’t touch him. He’s just there.
What’s wonderful about Wednesday, is having God in my life.
Always, I will love him.
