You said it!

I'm likely to pray on the fly... and expect God to catch up with me...!

Which, in His mercy, He does. I hear him through diverse methods... billboards, license plates, snippets of radio messages, sermons, my chidren, what I say TO my children (gotta love those!), and wildlife (yay for bunnies!)...

Sitting still and waiting for His still, small voice... well, I can be driven to distraction! I hear such a cacophany in my head (I call them the "committee")(no, I'm not totally MPD/DID, but I can dissociate with the best of 'em!)... it's hard to know who I'm hearing... til I ask for clarification... and then - it never fails - He speaks through SOMETHING...

... usually it's a sort of "knowing"... and I get that peace that "passes all understanding", despite the insanity of my circumstances.

Spriggy - I hear you about learning to trust God! Tougher than anything else to learn! Especially when you THINK you trust Him, and then difficult circumstances go deep, and you find out - to your horror and chagrin! - that you don't trust Him as much as you thought you did...

... or that He wants you to go even deeper into trust than you ever thought possible..

... and the way there is to go deeper into pain and suffering (which none of us would volunteer for, at least *I* wouldn't go there without some divine intervention!).

I could be waaaaaay off on what you're talking about, but it's what I've been experiencing in trying to sell my house in a "hot" market for the past 5 months... while everyone else around me is moving on.

Evidently I inadvertently signed up for the "Job plan" of house marketing...!

I pray that you WILL go deeper, WILL learn more trust, and WILL find perfect peace - despite it ALL!!!

Shalom, Dena
