Without A Net

I've been having frustrating conversations with God lately. Here are a few examples:

Me: Please tell me what you want me to do.
God: I want you to do X.
Me: Really? I'm not sure about that idea.

Me: This is a tough decision-- do I take the tidy, straightforward, well-mapped option, or do I fly without a net?
God: Well, flying without a net is your decision. But does it look to you like I'm letting you take the tidy option?

Me: I'm really scared. I don't want to make a decision for the wrong reasons.
God: I am really, really big, and I'm in this with you.

Stay tuned, friends.


  1. God ~rolls my eyes~ He just has all the answers doesn't he? *snickers*

  2. We did a litany in children's worship time this Sunday that went something like this:

    When I have a new toy:
    Thank you God, for being with me.

    When I do not get what I want:
    Thank you God, for being with me.

    When I am happy:
    Thank you God, for being with me.

    When I am sad:
    Thank you God, for being with me.

    You get the idea.

    Sounds like you could use the same litany :)

  3. ...I have had this day.


"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was."
