Daily Delight

“Maybe I just missed God this time,” was what I resigned myself to think when something didn’t pan out the way I thought it would have recently. I felt Him in it, looked for signs and told a few people so that they could pray with me. I saw signs, but were they for someone else and not me? Was I not supposed to tell anyone? Was I supposed to eat a different cereal than what I did in order for God to answer my request? 

Where did I go wrong? 

Isn't that what we do? Look for which behavior was the slip up, which step I missed in the "follow these top 10 signs to have your prayers answered."  Or maybe that just wasn't His voice at all. Maybe it was mine. Perhaps I contrived it to be God when it was just me. 

And in my questioning, in my reasoning and trying to figure it out and combing it with a cheap 10 cent comb to find where I went wrong, I hear Him ask, "Do you trust me?"  "I sure want to," I respond. "Then why don't you?"  

Im currently without answers but am laying down my quest in exchange for time with Him.  Knowing and believing, trusting and worshipping, just being and feeling Him in the waiting.  Hoping in the longing. Recognizing my need to be still and let God be God. And let Him work all of it out.    

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths." -Proverbs 3:5-6
