During my quite time this morning I was thinking that it would be so much easier if God would just text us. Not anything fantastic like the winning numbers to the lottery (though that would be nice), but things like "Watch your mouth; you are about to hurt someone" or " "Do you really want to do that?" Or even something as general as "Have faith". But it seems that I wander around so much of the time trying to do the right thing and not having a clue as to which right thing to choose. And then I come to realize that the role of the Holy Spirit is to be that text in our lives. I have to wonder why I find it so easy to ignore His warnings and instructions. Where do other people find the faith to hear him so clearly and always obey? How do they get the confidence that God has their backs and so they step forward without fear? I want that kind of faith, but I wonder if I don't have it after 39 years as a christian, will I ever get it.
