Something I was just pondering....


Previous Entry Something I was just pondering.... Jan. 3rd, 2010 @ 10:20 am Next Entry
yeah, I know I've already posted today.......I've been doing laundry. And thinking. About all sorts of stuff.....

Anyway, why is it that the church teaches you to ask Yah for the BIG things - you know, like a better job, house, whatever - but doesn't mention the small stuff? Doesn't He provide EVERYTHING? Shouldn't He be involved with EVERY decision we make?

I'm as guilty of that as anyone - I tend to blaze ahead on the small stuff (like today. I just ordered a New Zealand-style rug for Dusty. He's 22, he's feeling the cold *horribly*. Every year, about this time, I buy him a blanket. Every year, about 3 weeks later, Finn has destroyed said blanket. THIS year, I sorta half-heartedly said "Lord, Dusty is cold. What should I do about it?" and then...forgot. Until last night. When everything that popped up on eBay was a canvas turnout rug. :blink: OK. I can take a hint! :lol:)

Seriously, though - I don't see/hear anyone seeking Yah's guidance on the everyday stuff. "What should we have for dinner?" "What should I wear today?" Silly? Well...not really, if you think about it. Yah has told us OVER and OVER and OVER again that HE is the provider, right? So...why not ask?

I'm going to try to do this in my life. Try being the operative word. I know that when I seek His guidance on the big stuff, he answers....so I need to ask about the small stuff, too. I think life would run a LOT smoother. :grin:

Back to laundry...and supervising the children. Who think it's abusive that they have to clean their bathroom, and their rooms. (What? I'm not their maid! *I* didn't make the mess - why should I clean it up??)

I feel the SAME WAY about prayer - they teach you to 'pray' for meals and before bed and during devotions or study, but that's NOT how it's supposed to be - I have a running conversation in my head almost all day with Him. Like talking to yourself, only directed Heaven-ward, y'know? Paul said to 'Pray without ceasing'. I just wish He'd reply without ceasing... ((blush!))

Re: Little-ness

Oh, man - I hear ya! I usually am babbling to Him all day, too....I'm trying to *listen* more. It's hard....

I've only gotten 1 definate response from Him, and I'm waiting patiently for it to happen. It's very humbling.....
