I miss you dad.

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.

Dear God,
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.
Amen
