Last night I had a dream about my dad. Dad left us for Heaven over 3 years ago, and I of course miss him very much. Last night I dreamt that we went fishing together. Dad loved to fish and we went every summer when I was young. We haven’t gone together for many years, so even though it was a dream, I really enjoyed our time together.
When I got up this morning, I had dad on my mind. I saw his bible on my book shelf and decided to flip through it. I asked dad and God to send me a message. I hoped that there would be a verse he had marked that would speak to me. But, there wasn’t a single spot where he had written anything. The whole bible was very dog eared and obviously very well read, but no writing. I decided to just open and start reading.
As I told you yesterday, I had a terrible day. In addition to everything that happened yesterday, there has been some things going on in my life that I have been struggling with lately. When I asked God to speak to me, he was evidently listening. The bible opened to a verse that spoke directly to what I have been worrying about. It very easily could have started with “Dear Amy,”. It hit me like a hammer between the eyes. It changed my day. It very well may have changed my life.
I would love to explain it to you, but it would be to difficult to do. Just please believe me. So today, I want to remind you to trust in God. Just when you least expect it, he will talk to you. All you have to do is listen.
I am sorry I am not better about listening for your voice. Thank you for being patient with me. Thank you for continuing to speak to me, even when I don’t slow down to listen. Thank you for everything you do for me. And thank you for my dad.
