We Don’t Know All We’d Like To Know
Sometimes we don’t know everything we think we know. My son Josh saves money better than I do, but when he was young he didn’t know all that he knows now.
One day, when Josh was about six years old he and I drove to the gas station. Before we paid for our gas we surveyed the candy aisle. We each picked out some candy. I grabbed an Almond Joy and Josh grabbed a special candy sucker that spun.
Satisfied with our choices we walked into the line at the register.
When I have allowed God to come close, as close as I have so far, it can feel overwhelming. I forced back tears just now thinking of how special I felt. At the same time, I know that I willfully and consciously pushed God back because it felt so…overwhelming, that I felt like I couldn’t house God’s love inside of me.
I was on a trip with a group of TreeHouse teens. I was praying.
