We want a sign
Pray for a sign
Ask for a sign
Yet refuse to open our eyes and see...
"Lord, Show Me a Sign"
(originally posted 3/4/14)
The campus was undergoing construction and I wasn't sure if I would know which way to go,
so I said a quick prayer before heading out...
"Lord, please make my path straight and show me a sign"
and when I arrived, I found parking being redirected
as several men waved large signs pointing to where I was now supposed to park
I smiled and pulled into the parking garage and found a spot
Volunteers in brightly colored vests were strategically placed along the path that led to the
free continental breakfast
A quick glance at the program indicated that each of my three workshops
would be held in Building T
I headed out of the gym and began walking and there it was
a sign showing me which way to go
"Lord, show me a sign", I had prayed and now this...
And the irony was not totally lost on me because
God has a sense of humor and I know it
T is also my nickname
and as I read
Building T, go right
I also read it as
for "building" T, go right!
Only if life were always this easy
(a sign with our name and an arrow pointing which way to go)
But God has left us a sign...
The Holy Bible
which points us in the right direction
And when we open it and begin to read
He makes our pathway straight
So today if you're...
unsure of where you're going
unsure of how to navigate this confusing world
or if the place you've always known
is now under construction
take a moment
look to the sky
and pray for direction
