When God Whispers

The man whispered, "God, speak to me," and a meadowlark sang.
But the man did not hear.
So the man yelled, "God, speak to me," and the thunder rolled across the sky.
But the man did not listen.
The man looked around and said, "God, let me see you." And a star shined brightly.
But the man did not see.
And the man shouted, "God, show me a miracle." And a life was born.
But the man did not notice.
So, the man cried out in despair, "Touch me, God, and let me know you are here."
Whereupon, God reached down and touched the man. But the man brushed the butterfly away and walked on.


Prayer for Today:

Father in heaven, I stand before You today in
Your omnipotent presence to ask that You grant
me strength. I want You to give me the strength
to power through all of the tasks today —
whether little or big. It is by Your will that I live
oh Lord. And I know it is also by Your will I will not
go weak today. Amen

Thought for Today:

“Love only grows by sharing. You can only have
more for yourself by giving it away to others.”
