I ran across the most beautiful devotional today. It so reflects our journey through life, especially with Sheridan.

A Man Whispered…

A man whispered, ‘God, speak to me,’ and a meadowlark sang.

But the man did not hear.

So the man yelled, ‘God, speak to me!’ and the thunder rolled across the sky.

But the man did not listen.

The man looked around and said, ‘God, let me see you!’ and a star shined brightly.

But the man did not notice.

And the man shouted, ‘God, show me a miracle!’ and a life was born.

But the man did not know.

So the man cried out in despair, ‘Touch me God, and let me know you are here!’

Whereupon God reached down and touched the man.

But the man brushed the butterfly away and walked on.

Don’t miss out on a blessing because it isn’t packaged the way that you expect.

This has always really spoken to me as well. God speaks in the most magnificent of ways. We just have to be open and sensitive to it.

I posted this on my son’s FB page because he has been doubting and struggling and angry. The next day he posted he had seen the ship Chaplain and had a new bible! Thank you for letting God use you!
