03.15.2010 – God Isn’t Telling Anybody Anything!
I’ll start this post by just saying that today sucks. It’s one of those days for me when everything seems to have caught up to me and beat me relentlessly with large clubs. I’m pissy! I’m moody! And at the same time, pretty certain that tomorrow will be a much better day.
That being said, and the reason for my post is, that I find it funny that God isn’t telling my religious family and friends about my mood. No words of wisdom from the Almighty to them, telling them how much I could use a phone call or a message. You’d think that he’d let them know right? Like a voice to my Mom’s head: “Hey, your oldest son is having a rough go of it today, you might wanna check in on him” or to any of my siblings: “Your brother could use a phone call”.
Nope, that never happens. Unless I go out of MY way to mention it somewhere, they will never know. Why? Because this is just another little piece of the ‘Evidence Pie’ that I can add to my own collection that further supports my non-belief.
I’m sure someone will spin it to blame it on me for my lack of faith. But the reality is, that would be one REALLY easy way for God to prove himself to me. I’d almost convert on the spot if someone called me out of the blue and said “You know…God just told me that you’re feeling pretty down today. And I thought I should call you to make sure you’re doing ok”. I mean really? How hard would that be? I’m sure I’d still have the thoughts of ‘pure coincidence’ rolling around in my head, but that would certainly give me pause. (of course, now that this blog post is out there, there’s always the chance that someone saw it and put 2 and 2 together! ;))
For the record, this post is not a cry for sympathy from the readers of this blog. Just a fleeting thought that crossed my mind today. I’ll be fine tomorrow. Maybe even later today.
