God does talk to me sometimes

Yesterday, as I mentioned before in my journal, my dog Sadie got away from me.

Actually, I turned her loose.  I didn't know Buddy was nearby, or I'd have kept her on her leash.  She followed him into the woods and totally ignored my calls.  Buddy showed up later without her.

For almost an hour, I called for her, shouting her name over and over.  I would come to the house to see if she had returned without me; then I'd go back into the pasture, still calling for her.

While she was missing, I felt, more than heard, God speaking.

"Now you know how I feel," He said, "when I call to you again and again, and you go on your merry way as though I weren't here."

I'm glad God still speaks to me.

What a lovely way of putting it all into perspective, Donna.  We are like his children, and ofen times we react to him the way our children and pets do to us.  Great analogy.

amen to that! glad you are still listening to him

I heard/read somewhere he's always speaking to us; we just tend to tune him out most of the time

I don't believe in God -- but I am glad that you do.  Does that make sense?  I am making way too many connections between you and my mother.  There is comfort there and solice.  I'll shut up now.

Well, you know how I feel about that.  I know HE talks to me and I know he shakes his head and laughs at me.  

And like you - He pats me on the head and sends me on my merry way.

Yes, He does remind us of what's important now and then !   Too bad we don't remember.  I guess that's why we are humans and He is God.  I often feel like Moses, walking in the wilderness....Have a great weekend !  'On Ya' - ma

That is why I cannot understand how anyone can live without God in thier life. He is the comforter and of course many more things to us. Praise God you found your dear pet. Just like God calls us you called and called for her. What a great way to see God work and greater yet to make the comparison.
