Daughter, I Have an Answer
“Mom, I have a question.” He says in a popcorn style, peppy, ready to find the meaning to life manner.
“Son, I have an answer.” I reply, matching his cantor. (You must hear the sing-song-rythm that takes place in this convo.)
This response is the way I have learned to combat this kids' relentless need to explore….every detail….of everything….that exists or pertains to man, the earth, the universe, God, life.
We have this conversation countless times a day. It is a fun little banter between us, when I am not exhausted from his never-ending questions of course! lol
So here’s my deep thought:
Surely God answers us in much the same way, yet without fatigue. No matter how many times I have been to God with my questions, He never tires answering them.
I can declare, “God, I have a question.”
Not out of obligation and never wearied from my exhaustive list of inquiries, I imagine He lovingly replies with a smile in His voice, “Daughter, I have an answer.”
Do you have questions for God? Ask away. He is waiting to answer.
