It’s About Time, God

English Audio Version

Hey, God, did you even notice me today?

I’m here, see? Look down. I could use a little attention today.

Have you noticed my car? It broke down three times last month. I could use a new one.

And the house. What’s up with that? How can five people live in three bedrooms, and the laundry … it’s in the garage. The garage, of all places.

Lest I forget, have you noticed the people I work with? Losers, every one. I’ve applied for a new position. Can you see your way to giving me a boost in the financial department?

(Crash! Lighting flashes and thunder booms.)

That was me, my child. Who do you think I am, the Tooth Fairy? Santa Claus? A genie that lives in the heavenly realms?

(Chuckles rumble through the sky, and the clouds seem to shake.)

God continues: Your car hasn’t been repossessed, has it? I’ve given you enough to make the payments. At least you don’t need to visit the laundromat. And about that job, you are the example your coworkers need to see if they are ever going to be anything but losers.

You are my hand extended to everyone you meet. Thank you, and I love you.

Psalm 37:3-4 says it so well:

“Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”

We learn four truths in this passage:

Truth No. 1:

Trust in the Lord. That’s the foundation of the good we do.

Truth No. 2:

Be content in every situation. It’s called being faithful.

Truth No. 3:

Find joy in God, not in possessions.

Truth No. 4:

When we desire God, our every desire will become reality.

It’s human to pursue possessions. It’s divine to desire God. It’s time to focus on what really matters.

Christ loves us, but one day, he will rise and destroy those who do not follow after him.
