Do you talk to God? And if yes, how? More importantly, how does God talk to you? Have you ever given it any thought at all?
Well if you know me, you would know how much I love to talk! I can easily carry on a conversation with myself as if it’s the most normal thing in the world. It’s even worse since menopause; I have to talk it out or go crazy during those flashes even though I consider myself one hot (flashing) chick!
By extension, that’s how I talk to God: freely, easily and constantly. We have lots of conversations – on my way into the office, while I’m cooking, as I water my plants, as I tuck myself into bed at the end of a long tiring day. There is lots of opportunity for chit chatting and I utilise them all.
Apart from praying and praising, I thank Him for green traffic lights on the way to work and for helping me to keep my sanity during meetings. Some days I ask Him why He lets His son (also my son) stress His daughter (that would be me) so much, especially when she’s running late or not in the mood to argue. On other days I tell Him about the things I want in my life and share my deepest biggest fears. At the end of a major project where everything just seems to fall into place and everyone is smiling I never forget to give Him a high-five, because “He’s the man!”
Of course I would be dishonest if I didn’t admit to the fact that I also bitterly complain and whine and fuss at times about the unfairness of life … but then I’m only human, living with other humans, in an imperfect human world. But I guess the real question is this: after all of my talking, how does God talk to ME? And if He does, how can I be sure it’s really Him?
