Dealing- as in with stress. Dealing with things I cannot change. Sometimes dealing with merely my own unlovely stupidity.

Dealing with a God who is bigger than a candy store- when all I want is a candy store. Just bag up chocolate-covered patience and trust, and throw in cinnamon-flavored stability; I'll take it to go.

I want to be a novel so I can peak at the ending in order to relax and enjoy the present reading.

God is not compliant but God is Love.

"For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need." Hebrews 4:16

He hears my immature prayers and sighs.

I realize I am wishing for a God much smaller than the great I AM. I'm wishing for a God content to leave me small and unfinished. But: "He disciplines us for our good, so that we may share his holiness." Hebrews 12:10 and- "For our God is a consuming fire." Hebrews 12:29

I guess this is why even in Narnia (speaking of novels) it is often repeated that, "Aslan is not a tame lion."

I love Hebrews 4:16. You are a biography written in the book of life and when God hears your prayers and checks your page, I bet he smiles.
