This was shared with me from a dear friend…and it should serve as a reminder to each of us. I hope that you will enjoy this as well.
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 shone 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.
I found this to be a great reminder that God is always around us in the little and simple things that we take for granted…even in our electronic age.
So I would like to add one more –
The man cried, “God, I need your help!” and an e-mail arrived reaching out with good news and encouragement.
But, the man deleted it and continued crying.
Don’t miss out on a blessing because it isn’t packaged the way that you expect.
