Today seems to be my day for answering the proverbial $64,000 question: How do I know what God wants me to do?
The blog earlier today was simply a springboard — it had me thinking along those lines at the crack of dawn and it has been posed to me by no fewer than four folks. Having travelled down that road, I know how frustrating it seems to be.
Have you ever seen those 3-D picturegrams that appear to be a random pattern of noise? You can stare at it until you are blue in the face, but you will see nothing but colors and random shapes. If you look at the picture in an out of focus manner, suddenly an amazing 3-dimensional picture leaps out at you. This whole faith-thing is like that; the harder you try the more impossible it seems to attain it. Once you go “out of focus,” it suddenly becomes clear.
Or, another way of looking at it is getting pregnant. How many couples have diligently worked to create a baby to no avail. After they’ve given up, or better yet, decide to adopt, and all the pressure is off, Bingo!, they get pregnant. I guess you might say they are doing what comes naturally — so it is with this faith thingy.
Maybe I should write a book…
