I dreamed I had an INTERVIEW WITH GOD.
“So, you would like to interview me?” GOD asked.
“If you have time,” I said.
GOD smiled. “My time is eternity… what questions do you have in mind for me?”
“What surprises you the most about humankind?”
“That they get bored with childhood that they rush to grow up, and then long to be children again.”
“That they lose their health to make money… and then lose their money to restore their health.”
“That by thinking anxiously about the future, they forget the present, such that they live in neither the present nor the future.”
“That they live as if they would never die, and die as though they had never lived.”
GOD’s hand took mine … and we were silent for a while. And then I asked,
“As a parent, what are some of life’s lessons you want your children to learn?”
GOD replied, “To learn they cannot make anyone love them. All they can do is let themselves be loved.”
“To learn that it is not good to compare
themselves to others.”
“To learn to forgive by practicing forgiveness.”
“To learn that it only takes a few seconds to open profound wounds in those they love, and it can take many years to heal them.”
“To learn that a rich person is not one who has the most, but is one who needs the least.”
“To learn that there are people who love them dearly, but simply do not yet know how to express or show their feelings.”
“To learn that two people can look at the same thing, and see it differently.”
“To learn that it is not enough that they forgive one another, but they must also forgive themselves.”
“Thank you for your time,” I said humbly.
“Is there anything else you would like your children to know?”
GOD smiled, and said… “Just know that I am here, always.”
Gracious God, You have blessed me with many gifts and talents. Grant me the wisdom to know how to best use
them for the glory of Your Name.
Jesus calls, come follow Me.
I want to follow Him and be faithful to my call. Help me to see in myself what you see, And give me the courage to follow wherever You may lead. Bless the Church with generous hearts, eager to serve Your people and to spread Your Word. Amen.
