I dont know what to do, Lord. The problem is that Im at a crossroads. Which way should I turn? I guess the best thing to do is

I

just go with my first thought. That would be best, right? But then, what about

I AM

things other people say? Their advice is the total opposite, so whos correct? Them or me? I wish someone would just tell me what to

I AM THE

do, someone who actually knows. But Lord, who would that be? Its not as though I know anyone really wise, or

I AM THE WAY

even good at leading and anyway, how could I really be sure they had my best interests at heart? I mean, how would I know they were being really honest and

I AM THE TRUTH

not just wanting to make themselves look good? Its so confusing and Im tying myself up in knots about it. All I really want is to be happy, whichever decision I make. I just want to enjoy being alive but thats pretty much impossible

I AM THE LIFE

these days, theres so much fear and pressure. No one seems to relax, let go, chat and enjoy life.

And to cap it all, Lord, even You are silent now. Just when I really need to hear You. Ive told You about the problem, Ive prayed to You about it but get no answer. Well thats it, I dont know what else to say, Ive finished talking.

I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE

Oh Lord, thank You! I heard You and You are absolutely right. I need to look to You for everything in life, Youll guide me I just need to follow. Thank You for reminding me of that.

Just one thing, Lord couldnt You have spoken to me sooner?

This left me with a HUGH smile! Very cleverly done.

God is always there, isn't he? Patiently guiding us to his truth, just as your piece suggests in a pictoral way also. Clever.

Sometimes we just talk so loud we can'r hear His voice.
A great scenario.Blessings, Ruth

Very believable dialogue between the MC and God!

I too gave a bit of a smile at the end. I think that fits in well with my recent submission on "taste." In this I used the word "hear" It does not matter how we hear the message, it is more to do with "taste" and see that the Lord is good.

Great stuff
