I came across a question on Answerbag.com: If you could meet one person in the whole world past, present, or future, who would you want to meet and why?
I wonder if anyone answered “God” (or Jesus). I think if I could actually choose one person, or entity, to have a question and answer session with, it would be God. I do know I can talk to God anytime, and I do know that He answers…but wouldn’t you like to sit down with Him and just ask some very specific questions?
I think I’d ask things about myself…like why is it that the only thing I seem to be able to finish that I start is a pack of cookies. I’d ask how to fix my lack of self-control that gets me into trouble, or my lack of motivation. I don’t know if I’d ask things like why He allows abuse, or why there are starving children, or why good people die of cancer and mean people live to be 90…I wonder about such things, but I don’t know if I would be able to take the answer. I can read Job and understand that He is in control…complete control.
I seem to remember something about not asking God “Why?”
I am about to talk myself out of posting this entry.
What if you could only ask Him one question to which you could get a direct answer? What would you ask?
I believe I would ask Him exactly how involved He is in our everyday lives. Does He step back and let nature and life take its course, or is He intimately interested in MY life?
