““I screamed at God for all the starving children, and then I realized that all of the starving children were God screaming at me.”
This reminds me of the old story about the man who heard about a flood on the radio and said God would take care of him. The water rose and he ended up on the roof of his house. A boat came by and offered to save him but he declined saying God would save him. A helicopter came and tried to help him from the roof. Again he refused saying god would provide.
The man drowned and when he reached heaven he demanded from God “why didn’t you save me?” God replied: “I sent a news report, a boat and a helicopter. What are you doing here?”
We expect our answers from God to be extraordinary and ignore the things in front of us.
Prayer: God of wisdom, forgive us when we are blind and don’t see the messages you send. Amen
