I had a conversation with God today.
It went something like this...
God: "That thing you keep holding on to? Yeah, you need to give that up."
Me: (sigh) "Really?"
God: "Yes, really!"
Me: (sigh again) "But I really like this thing!"
God: "I know, but it's keeping you from being the person I want you to be"
Me: (triple sigh) "I know. But I've come so far in the last few years, can't I stop growing just for a little bit?"
Me: "Yeah, I kind of thought you might say that"
God: "I have great things planned for you and I want you to be ready for them"
Me: "I know, and I want that too, but I also kind of really want this thing too"
God: "But you can't have both"
Me: "OK but, that "great thing" you planned isn't here yet, so can't I hold onto this until I get there?"
God: "But you will never get there as long as you hold on to this."
Me: (more sighing) "Yeah, I kind of thought you might say that too."
How much more sun and water do you think I will need before I will be done growing?
