Talking to God about tomorrow

Original post: March 31, 2008; update: January 31, 2010.

I had a conversation with God the other day about my future. It went a little something like this:

Me: I want to know what’s on your heart so that I can have these things on mine as well.

God: My heart’s pretty big. If I put all the things that are on my heart on yours, yours would most definitely be crushed.

Me: Okay, then. Would you at least show me what to do now?

God: Be faithful with what you know and what you see; act on where you’re at now. It may not be much, but it’s enough for now.

Me: *sigh* Typical.

God: You’re welcome.

Update, 2010: It’s certainly interesting to see how things have progressed in the last two years. Some things have changed. Some other things never change.
