If you’re a parent, you know how frustrating it is when your kids don’t listen, right? You keep repeating yourself and it seems no one is paying any attention.
Sometimes I think my Heavenly Father must feel the same way about me.
Here’s a curious thing that happened over the weekend and you tell me what you think. First, I have to give you a little background. Over the years, I have dated several men who have been good dancers. The dancing was great, but sadly, none of the relationships worked out and I have suffered great emotional pain as a result.
So there’s this guy that I have been dancing with on occasion lately who is a really good dancer. I feel like I am in heaven when I am dancing with him. Got the picture? We danced to this one song recently, and the moment made a lasting impression.
Well, the same song came on the radio over the weekend, and I started dancing around my condo dreamily. All of the sudden, the building smoke alarm system goes off chirp chirp chirping and snaps me right out of my revelry.
I knew what it meant immediately.”Stop thinking about that guy. You know where it will lead if you go down that path again. Danger, danger.” The message was LOUD and CLEAR. I have to admit I was a bit disappointed, but I knew that the message was for my own protection and well-being.
Now you might laugh and say it was just a coincidence, but I know the Lord. And there are no coincidences with Him. If you could have been there and heard that alarm go off, it would have scared you smack into obedience too.
Ever had something like this happen to you? What was the message and did you listen or ignore it and what happened then? God is still speaking to us today and He will use any method to get our attention. The question is will we listen and obey, or not?
Until next time, keep looking up!
