Did you hear God today?

The man whispered, "God, speak to me" and a Chickadee 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 shined brightly.
But the man did not notice.
And, the man shouted, "God show me a miracle!"
And, a life was born.
But, the man did not know.
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.
Don't miss out on a blessing because it isn't packaged the way that you expect.

Lord, help me to not miss out on a single thing you are showing me today- because it wasn't the way "I" thought it should be."Be prepared in season and out of season" 2 Timothy 4:2. I know my emotions are unreliable and will change, but you are consistant- always the same. I can count on you. Help me to make myself available to you always and allow you to use me in any situation. Open my eyes and help me to focus only on you.

Yes...I did hear God's voice and it came through the voice of my sister. Thanks for the great advice for Ty. I don't know what I'd do without you!
