I’m sure the word distraction is not the appropriate word, but it is the truth. I desire God to speak to me daily and to lead me in even the littlest of my decisions. But every time He does so ~ I often act like it’s a distraction. What I am facing here is the perfect internal storm. My personal ego and desire is facing my unquenchable love for God. Oh, believe me, I’m wanting the Lord to win this battle. But internally I constantly fool myself by masking my personal will and desire, in my misconceived thoughts that I am doing His perfect will. Oh, what a wretched man that I am!
I am very familiar with the power of a smart mouth, but You, oh, God, are far more full of cleverness and the ability to turn a phrase. Yet You choose to be gentle and simple with me, as if You are talking to a little child. Yes, You treat me like “Hello Kitty,” the pure innocence of the little child’s playmate. I did not know it was You at first because You talked so gently and kindly to me. But the years of settling in on Your instructions have taught me that the gentle sure trust of Your divine simplicity is as safe as my mother’s cuddling arms when I was a child.
What I’m really trying to say, Lord, is “Thank You.” Thank You for putting up with me when I treated Your words as if they were distractions. In truth, they were the main highways of my life that You were trying to steer me towards. I am not there yet, but my heart is racing with the excitement of a Olympiad champion facing his final ski jump, knowing that I’m about to leap into Your perfect will, which is God’s Hall of Fame, His gold metal, His championship ring of fire.
