What’s Up, God?

What’s Up, God?

by Janis Cox

What's Up God?

Sometimes this is my question to God.

“What’s Up, God?”

I try live in the moment, be aware what God is doing around me and follow Him. That’s my Mary heart.

Then there is, “I need to do” personality. My list gets longer. Time gets shorter. My head is full.

STOP – ask the question:

“What’s Up, God? Where are You in this?”

My conversation continues as I listen to His answers.

Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything (James 1:4, NIV).

Then I remember –

I am a work in progress with God’s Hand on me. (tweet this)

Hurrah! I don’t have to fret about whether I am Mary or Martha as long as I am connected to Jesus.

So I continue on my Mary/Martha journey, excited with each insight God gives me.

I grow. I learn. I question. I get answers. I continue. I repeat.

That is prayer – talking to God.

Prayer:

Thanks, Lord, for the way you have made us able to connect to You, at any time, or place. Thanks for listening. Thanks for Your advice in the Bible. Thanks for speaking thoughts into my mind. In Jesus’ name. AMEN.
