Hey 👋🏾 there BCU Family!

A suggestion is to please LISTEN as you read as there is a little “unplanned” commentary in the podcast. In any case, we pray the post blesses you. If so, please thumbs up, share and/ or leave a comment! Thank you and enjoy the post!
I was going through my notes earlier this week and ran across this thought-provoking-“dialogue” between God and the original author (I’m not sure who that is), that I picked up about five years ago. I changed a bit of the conversation here and there, but the poem is still intact and an awesome reminder of the wisdom and protection of our intentional Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Me: God, can I ask you a question? (and yes, we can respectfully ask God questions. See Psalm 62:8b). Why did you let so many bad things happen to me today?
God patiently listens…
Me: Well, I woke up late.
My car took so long to start.
At lunch they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait.
On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call.
(tears in my eyes)
And on top of it all off, when I got home, I just want to soak my feet in my new foot massager & relax. BUT it wouldn’t work!!!
Nothing went right today! Why did that happen?
God: The Death Angel was at your bed this morning and I sent one of the other angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.
Me: (humbled): Ohhhh..
God: I didn’t let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.
God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick and I didn’t want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn’t afford to miss work.
Me: (embarrassed): I see…
God: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to give false witness about what you said on that call. I didn’t even let you talk to them so you would be covered.
Me (softly): Oh.
God: And that foot massager–it had a shortage that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn’t think you wanted to be in the dark.
Me: (in tears of repentance and gratefulness) Lord, please forgive me.
God: I forgive you, Daughter, just learn to trust me…..in all things. They work together for the good to them love Me and are the called according my My purpose. (Romans 8:28). That’s you–you are the called according to my purpose.
Me: With your help, I will trust you.
God: And don’t doubt that My plan for your day is always better than your plan.
Me: I won’t God. And let me just tell you, Jesus, thank you for everything today. I love you!
God: You’re welcome, Daughter. It was just another day being your Heavenly Father and I love looking after my children…I love you.
Did this speak to your heart? Stir up some feelings of repentance? Prompt you to be more thankful? Cause some rejoicing? (that Psalm 24:7-10 will take you to a place of praise)! Let me know your thoughts in the comment section below and we’ll continue our conversation!
