Aimless


When I was a child, I thought that God could do anything, and he did. Now I am in my senior years I still know God can do anything, and he does, It’s just not my anything. So I have decided to go back to being a child again. I like it when God does anything , especially my anything. Not always the best for others but oh what a thrill to a little boy it is, to ask and receive. I wonder what it would be like if we could know the right thing to as, or the right way to ask it. Do you think that it would be a better world if man could somehow, move the hand of God? I once heard a woman on TV pray for her chicken, is that the kind of prayer we should pray? Is there a right prayer? Is it a set of specifics that I need to follow so God will actually hear me? So many things about prayer are communicated around the world, one might think that nothing works, is it an imagination that we are praying to? Wouldn’t it be sad to find out that all the people killed in religious wars were being fought for an imaginary God? How about those that were burned at the stake for an imaginary God? When did God turn into an imagination? Was God involved with man at one time, but now he has better things to do? Some say that God doesn’t even exist. What do you say?

I say man is to busy for God. We don’t have time, we don’t trust traditional ways of being with God, and we really don’t want to give up the time we have. We are to busy chasing after bits of rock , glass and metal, putting them away for a rainy day. What ever is the brightest shiny object, commanding the highest price, we are after it with all our heart.

When it’s all said and done, just how is our foundation? We need a solid foundation if we are going to build a life. If we are ever going to have a relationship with anyone, especially God. Or have we dismissed him. The great Iconoclast called the church has pretty much decimated any concept of a true God, let alone a God that wants to be involved personally in our lives. Never mind the loss of all the benefits we derive by that relationship.

Will our foundation hold amid the storm? Storms will come as they always do, be ready.

One Response to “Aimless”

  1. There’s a lot of food for thought in this post.

    We spend our days trying to gather shiny toys, and the way we try to engage God is to get Him to give us all the toys we want. When He’s not quite on board with that, we start to wonder where He is. So we go to church, and find that often they are just gathering toys there, too…
