07/11/20 Weekend Grif.Net – My Conversation with God

Me: Okay, God, =
here’s the thing. I’m scared. I’m trying not to be, but I =
am.

 

God: I know. =
Want to talk about it?

 

Me: Do we need =
to? I mean, you already know.

 

God: Let’s =
talk about it anyway.  We’ve done this =
before.

 

Me: I know, I =
just feel like I should be bigger or stronger or something by =
now.

 

God: (waiting =
patiently, unhurried, undistracted, never =
annoyed)

 

Me: Okay. So, =
I’m afraid I’ll do everything I can to protect my family and it won’t be =
enough. I’m afraid of someone I love dying. I’m afraid the world won’t =
go back to what it was before. I’m afraid my life is always going to =
feel a little bit unsettled.

 

God: Anything =
else?

 

Me: EVERYTHING =
ELSE.

 

God: Remember =
how your son woke up the other night and came running down the hall to =
your bedroom?

 

Me: =
Yes.

 

God: You were =
still awake, so when you heard him running, you started calling out to =
him before he even got to you… remember? Do you remember what you =
called out to him?

 

Me: I said, =
"You’re okay! You’re okay! You’re okay! I’m =
here."

 

 

God: Why did =
you call to him? Why didn’t you just wait for him to get to your =
room?

Me: Because I =
wanted him to know that I was awake, and I heard him, and he didn’t have =
to be afraid until he reached the end of the dark =
hallway.

 

God: Exactly. =
I hear you, my child. I hear your thoughts racing like feet down the =
dark hallway. There’s another side to all of this. I’m there already. =
I’ve seen the end of it. And I want you to know right here as you walk =
through it all, you’re okay. I haven’t gone to sleep, and I =
won’t.

 

Me: (crying) =
Can we sit together awhile? Can we just sit here a minute before I go =
back to facing it all?

 

God: There’s =
nothing I’d love more.
