I had a conversation with a woman I didn’t know. She simply needed to ask me a few questions about a matter my family needed assistance with concerning our future. When you are dealing with the state I am convinced there are no straight forward answers, or for that matter any answers, but I digress. Anyway the lady asked me several questions and then she asked me a very pointed question about what I wanted to happen in this situation. I thought about her question for a moment, and then I proceeded to give my answer. She listened intently and as I finished, she politely said, “Are you through?” I said, Yes, I guess that about says it all.” She sat quietly for a moment and with no judgement stated, (paraphrasing) “Sweetie that really says nothing at all. I’m not your pastor, your church friends, or anyone in your social group, and I’m certainly not God; but what I do know is that God knows our struggles, our thoughts, and our hardships. So even if we don’t voice them to anyone else, how can we know the answer if we aren’t honest with at least ourselves. After all, He already knows our thoughts. Your answer tells nothing of what your heart feels or desires in this situation, only what you think others want you to feel.” 😳😳😳
So never in my days have I ever had this happen. It was like she was looking into my very soul, though she knew nothing about our journey or the struggles we had faced. Only God in a public, state building could reveal Himself and the truth of His Word. I am a firm believer that the Lord showed up in that office to make a point. We are to seek after Him with every fiber in our body, so we will know the truth, and the truth will set us free!
