This is God.
I will be handling
All of your
I will not need
Your help, so have
A miraculous day.
Here’s his reply: Should we find ways to give God a break?
There’s no theological answer to this question, but it sure has me thinking. Before my eyes are even open in the morning, I’m sending God my prayer list. Does God need a wake up call with all those names from yesterday’s list? And just wait, I’ll be adding new ones before my feet hit the floor. In fact, all day God keeps hearing from me.
I’m fine with asking God for all this help and I don’t believe God needs a break, (although maybe I do). But I do wonder at my persistence. Am I showing mistrust in God? What about that ‘let go and let God’ approach? Do I believe that I am the savior of these people? I’m sure you can come up with your own questions to ponder; certainly our pondering has value.
Somewhere someone suggested that we lift up our prayer requests to God and then go along leading our lives. Let God alone for a while to do God’s work. I wish I could remember who wrote that idea. I wish I could remember to follow it. I wish I could take a break.
