This week’s prompt – Test
Testing, Testing, Testing
Do you hear me?
Am I speaking clearly?
Do you understand what I am saying?
Are you willing to follow my words?
As with Samuel –
God called “Samuel, Samuel”
Can I anwser
“Speak, Lord, for thy servant heareth.”
This is my test.
willing to follow the directions
I do not like tests.
I always worry about my answers.
(Even eye exams – did I give the right answer?
Is the 1st ‘click’ or the 2nd ‘click’ clearer?)
What does God want me to learn from my tests?
God, first, wants me to listen.
Secondly, God’s desire for me is willingness to try.
Thirdly, God wants me to lean on Him during the test and
not on my own understanding.
I may not always get an ‘A’ on God’s test,
but I can receive a “Well Done”.
That is good enough for me.
