Day 8: When In Doubt, Pray

Posted by germz at 12:48 AM
I woke up and I was saddened by the Facebook statuses talking about earthquakes updated 30 minutes ago and so on. I can't even imagine how it was because I was in my most soundless sleep.

I am really into signs but of course in my Roman Catholic Side. My visit to Church yesterday just suddenly came into my mind and I thought of God. Well, I am always thinking of God.

Then, I read this post. It was something that I could relate.

Me: God can I ask you a question?
God: Sure
Me: Promise you won't get mad
God: I promise
Me: Why did you let so much stuff happen to me today?
God: What do you mean?
Me: Well, I woke up late,
God: Yes
Me: My car took forever to start,
God: Okay
Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait,
God: Huummmm...
Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call.....
God: All right
Me: And on top of it all off, when I got home ~I just want to soak my feet in my new foot massager & relax. BUT it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did you do that?
God: Let me see, the Death Angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one of the other angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.
Me (humbled): OH
GOD: I didn't let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.
Me (ashamed): .........
God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick & I didn't want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn't afford to miss work.
Me (embarrassed): Ok
God: Your phone went dead bcuz the person that was calling was going to give false witness about what you said on that call, I didn't even let you talk to them so you would be covered.
Me (softly): I see God
God: Oh and that foot massager, it had a shortage that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn't think you wanted to be in the dark.
Me: I'm sorry God
God: Don't be sorry, just learn to trust all things, the good & the bad.
Me: I will trust you
God: And don't doubt that my plan for your day is always better than your plan.
Me: I won't God. And let me just tell you God, thank you for everything today.
God: You're welcome child. It was just another day being your God and I love looking after my children......
God knows what he does.

So what if my soundless sleep was really made for a purpose? That God wanted me to keep away from the worries or even a mere panic regarding earthquake?

I may sound selfish but this is how I view life. Everything happens for a reason and God always have the best reasons.

I was not supposed to question something in regards with God. So I take it back and instead thank him for this day.

Yesterday, I lit those three candles for my petitions. Orange because it signifies career or education. One was supposed to be enough but then maybe I needed some extras for the rest of the people all around the world.

Don't worry everyone is included in those 3 lit candles.

When In Doubt, Pray!
