Go now, a child of God. Choose well the road you take,
And the decisions you make. Keep in mind always that The God you serve continues to call to you, making you more and more every day into the faithful one God wants you to be.

Today I’m just not feeling “It”
What is “it”?
Where does “it” come from?
How do I get “It”?

If the “it” was anger, the anger would be from knowing the one thing I tried to stop from happening, is happening and there is nothing that will put things back to where they were. I feel like there was this terrible earthquake and all that was left behind was ruin and memories of how things used to be. I am angry that this happened and my marriage is over.

If the “it” was happiness, the happiness would be from something good happening in my life. Some good things that I need to happen – some financial relief – a new place to live- a miracle for me to get out of my lease-my writing to be substantial for me to win a contest or two, something to consume all my time and the ability to concentrate on it.

If the “It” was contentment, the contentment would be from knowing everything is going to be alright. No one ever knows this but it is something we all hope for.

If the “it” was love, the love would be from loving me, loving others, and loving God. If you know love you always want to have it. You want to capture it and never let it go.

What is “it” that you need?

Matthew 25: 35-36
“For I was hungry and you fed me… naked and you clothed me.”

God will not always give us what we want, but he will give us what we need.

May grace and peace be with you from God our Father.

  1. In a conversation with a friend one time we were discussing when one asks God for help and He doesn't seem to answer. She said something that I never forgot: "Sometimes the answer is No." That stayed with me. So, yes, he will not always give us what we want, but he will certainly give us what we need. Very well said.
