Grumbling and Growling



I awoke this morning to my stomach growling.  How great is that?  What  you say?  Great?  Are you serious, that means you're hungry at 7:00 in the morning.  What will that mean for the rest of the day?  As I write this my stomach is growling.  It has occurred to me that rarely happens.  I am always eating, nibbling they call it, I think.  But since the beginning of Lent I have not nibbled, not once.  When dinner time comes around I am hungry, I relish the food I am eating.  It is not just a meal anymore.

Last night at our first Soup and the Word I was excited to try all the different soups.  I was so hungry I tasted one without waiting for it to cool and burnt the inside of my mouth.  I got up to get a drink a water to cool my mouth and it occurred to me, there are people without clean water.  Oh God, You are pushing me this Lent.  Every time I turn around there is a justice issue in my lap.  Everyone deserves food to eat and clean water to drink.  I'm a certain God is leading me somewhere.  I am praying for that leading to take me where I need to go.  I am praying that I won't stand in the way of God working in my life.

Prayer

God, please guide me, open my ears that I may hear Your plans for me.  Let me be receptive your leading and prepare me to be open and willing to follow that leading most of all.  Amen.
