Changing my questions and my Heart

Change Your Questions, Change Your Life

Good Morning, God!

Somehow, in the change over to my new iPhone I stumbled into listening to this book again. I enjoyed hearing it — even for the second time. I found I needed reminding. Such a simple concept, God. But, so easily forgotten.

Am I in Learner mode? Or am I in Judger mode? Not, judger as discerning. Judger as JUDGMENTAL! It is perfectly clear to me that a judgmental attitude is neither pleasant nor productive. It is just very tempting. 

In stressful situations the first response is to ask, “WHO DID THIS?” Who can we blame?

What we need to be asking are “Learner” questions. How did it happen? What can we do about it? Hmm. Maybe, God, it isn’t so much the questions as the Tone of Voice and Body Language. We humans are very sensitive to the unspoken attitudes of those around us.

Gosh, God! It just came to me that You must be TOTALLY sensitive to our attitudes. Yikes! No wonder You ask us to offer up the sacrifice of PRAISE. Praise being among other things, Trust made Audible. You do look on our Hearts.

A peaceful,Q trusting heart — full of praise and thanksgiving — must delight You. Right now my heart feels more like someone just dumped out a can of “pickup sticks.” Jumbled and at Cross Purposes!

It’s not that I don’t know how fortunate I am. I do! But, so many people are not so fortunate. Sometimes, God, the Pain and Suffering washes me out to sea. I want the lonely and the hurting to know You Love them. I want the hungry fed and the children protected.

So, God, today help me reach out. Help me bring canned goods to church. Help me to let You listen through my ears and give through my purse. Help me love.

Story teller,
