So, here are some questions I've been pondering. Care to ponder along?
Do you pray at night?
I had a discussion with a friend of mine once about this. I used to pray while I was laying in bed before I went to sleep, but I kept falling asleep during the prayer. So I felt guilty, like God was thinking...Seriously, you can't even stay awake long enough to talk to me? I don't even mean enough to you that you can say Amen before you snore. But my friend thought that it was ok. Like you were so comfortable talking to him that it was one of the best ways to fall asleep. I'm still up in the air.
Do you think that when you pray for the same thing over and over it means you don't have enough faith?
My dad was just on a motorcycle trip for five days. He went through seven states, by day two they had rode 1000 miles. So, every night when I said prayers with my kids we prayed for him to make it home safe. I have half a dozen girlfriends that are pregnant and one who really really wants to be. So we also pray for them every night. Here is my question...do you think once is enough? Do you think God gets frustrated that I pray for my dad's safe return every day until he is home? Do you think one time is enough and after that it is overkill? I just don't know how He feels about it.
Do you think the devil loves to get in your mind when you are at church?
I mean I know he loves it all the time...stinking devil. But, sometimes when I'm sitting in church I will have some thought and then I'm shocked at having it. But, I'm even in more shock that it is at church. I think he loves it...to get us especially when we are in God's house. Stinking devil.
Do you wish God had a blog?
I was just thinking the other day about people I know that I wish had a blog. And then I thought I wish God did. I know, I know, he gave us the greatest story ever told. But, sometimes I just wish I knew His plan or what He was thinking on something. I wonder what his 10 Things Thursday would be. 10 of His favorite things to do in heaven. or 10 people who were NOT making it in the pearly gates. I wonder if He would be sad at where we are or if it is going to get better. I wonder if He would tell great stories about Moses and Noah. Just sayin' it would be a good one.
