The Good Word

posted by Prayables

A man walked into a restaurant in a strange town. The waiter came and asked him for his order. Feeling lonely, he replied, “Meat loaf and a kind word.”

When the waiter returned with the meat loaf, the man said, “Where’s the good word?”

The waiter put down the meat loaf and sighed, bent down, and whispered, “Don’t eat the meat loaf.”

Vivid Dreaming

posted by Prayables

Joseph had a dream, where stalks of wheat bowed down to him. Telling his brothers about his nocturnal drama got him in one great big heap of trouble. But we all know— it turned out just fine in the end.

If you give voice to your dream, like Joseph, it’s possible others will be offended. Chances are you’ll get eye rolls, yawns or other facial gestures to let you know— they don’t much care. And then there are the times when you’re taken seriously. You find encouragement to talk about your dreams and ways to make those dreams a reality.

Viola swears that she can see her reality in a dream, before she even lives it. She subscribes to the theory that in order to activate your dreams, it must be seen vividly in all its dimensions.

It’s up to you to hear it, see it, touch it, feel it, and then decide whether or not to own your dream. Dreams can be noble, nonsense or self-serving. Sometimes a dream is nothing more than a fleeting thought. Other times, it is God speaking to you, and you’d best be listening.

Now Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers they hated him even more.
Genesis 37:5

All I Ask

posted by Prayables

Food on the table.
Heat for the winter months.
A decent day’s wage.
Restful sleep, all the way through the night.
Please provide for us the basic human necessities.
And then, something more:
Larger dreams, broader connections.
A cause to commit to.
Friends on the same wavelength.
Quality of life and a deeper meaning.
Answers to mysteries.
A way to be useful.
Setting the table with extra places.
An open heart to whatever life may send my way.
Bless us with life in all its glory.

-Ruth Williams, Prayables

Faltering Faith

posted by Prayables

Do you ever have a day when you’re just not that into God? In the harsh glare of reality, the One who looked so hot when you were all happy and having fun, looks like yesterday’s leftovers now that you’re feeling blue and stressed out.

It’s hard to go through the motions of loving the Almighty when you’re feeling everything but warm and fuzzy toward the One you’re blaming for a sorry state of affairs. It’s not fair and you know it, but what are you supposed to do when your faith falters?

Ask Diane—she’ll tell you. She was all dressed up with nowhere to go. God did not show up for their date. She packed up all of her troubles and tossed in her joy and gratitude, and like a cheap knock-off of the Hermes Birkin Bag, something was missing. She planned an intimate and meaningful session with her Creator, instead…nada. Not so much as a nanosecond of spiritual connection.

Diane solved her relationship problem by joining the crowd. She surrounded herself with people who find support in each other through good times and bad. She went to church. Diane found that her religious community is the go-to place to re-vitalize her “Gromance” with God. That’s right, capital “G” for growing your romance with God.

Everyday is not firecrackers and the 4th of July, when you’re in love. Just as patience, compromise and understanding is a must in a long lasting love match between two people, the same rules apply in a love match between you and your Creator. Make it work; true love is worth the work.

-Prayables

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
Deuteronomy 6:5
