Sometimes God talks and we halfway listen. Through books, through online bible studies, through a women’s group, it seems I have only halfway listened, so typical me! Today as I drove to a client’s location, I start reading this book as I drive. The point of the section I was reading: “Change me Lord”. I get to a point where cops had a check point. Apparently checking for dead inspection stickers…I happened to be that person! Just a few months behind! But hey I had to chuckle. Seriously who doesn’t know the inspection is past due 5 months!! The cop probably thought I was lying, oh well.

So as I drove home after work, I was thinking. Music turned down and it was just me and God.

God: Pay attention

Me: Well you got me there – I do need to pay more attention.

God: Really, Slow down & pay attention

Me: Ok. I do tend to sped through without paying attention

God: Slow down, pay attention and LOOK at what you are doing…

The bible studies, the book studies, books… all of the same lessons seem to just flood my brain…

God: Recognize your sin.

Then I remember looking over my monthly bookkeeping income for the past few months, this also floods my brain, money I have spent and not given for bills…

God: Slow down, pay attention, really look at what you are doing. Recognize your sin….

OUCH was all I could think…

Just this am I was trying to think of sins I have committed and none came to mind…Yeah time to see and recognize my sin…

Just this am I was thinking of all things I wanted to change about the man in my life….Yeah time to look at myself and see my sins…

Just this am I was wondering how I would pay my taxes….Yeah time to once again see and recognize my sin…

So I go get my car inspected. Thankful I was able to get in and seen within an hour….The car failed inspection. 2 tires were bad and failed. 1 tire in particular was ready to blow….The mechanic said to me “The car probably would have passed if it was done in Jan 2013 when it was supposed to be.” My reply “Then I wouldn’t have known about the tire getting ready to blow…” Either one of my daughters could have be driving it when the tire blew….Small blessings…

So 2 new tires, low on money, and an honest thought to get a real job, instead of running a business…the elephant has plopped down in the middle of the room….me & money
