We talk. He corrects.

Lately it seems my conversations with God have included a lot more phrases like “okay, BUT…”, “well, have you thought about… “, and “Lord, are you reeeeeeeally sure?!?” Sometimes I wish I could see the expression on his face as He listens to me asking the exact same question for the umpteenth time that day, even though He’s already given me the answer. Somehow I doubt its the same look of pure frustration I would wear if someone asked me the same question over and over again on a daily basis. Last week in a moment of overflowing thoughts I pulled up a new word document on my laptop, since my fingers could type faster than a pen could write, and as I wrote out every thought in my mind (both the sane and irrational) it seems like God had finally had enough of my questions and smacked me upside the head with His replies. His truth.

Lord I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to limit possibilities…
I can’t be limited. 

Okay, but I just don’t necessarily feel really comfortable…
It’s not about being comfortable.  When have I ever called you to ‘comfortable’? 

Okaaay, but this is just not how things usually work. It doesn’t usually happen like this…
And sometimes it does.

Okaaaaay, but Jesus I’m just not 100% sure. I feel lost…
You are exactly where I want you to be. 

We talk. He corrects. He teaches. He loves. and at the end of the day I’m so very thankful to know for certain that I’m exactly where He wants me to be. 

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:6-7

“For God is not a God of confusion, but of peace.” – 1 Corinthians 14:33
