Many years ago I had a pastor that got in the pulpit and boasted that he prayed about everything. He said, he even prayed about what socks to where each morning. Ironically a few weeks later he went before the congregation with two different color socks, I wondered how well he listened that morning. I pray, I like communicating with God, but I don’t asking what color socks to put on.
To what extent does God involve Himself in my everyday life? Does He, influence me to choose raisinbran instead of cornflake? Does God suggest what color socks I wear? Everyday the Holy Spirit guides me, sometimes stearing me from harm, leading me towards kindness towards others, to witness of Christs love, and sometimes, He will reveal some truth in His word I had not seen before.
I would like to establish the fact that God does love me, but the fact that I can’t keep up with my car keys, is a matter of my being able to keep my life organized. “It’s not about me”, is a saying someone else came up with, that I try to remind myself often. I’ll lets God work on the state of our nation, and I’ll make sure, when I get finished with my car keys I put them were I can find them.
