Messages From God

Sometimes I like to take the attitude that everything that happens to me is a message from God. When I hit a red light, I ask myself what is God telling me. Where do I need a red light in my life? When I hit a green light, I ask myself what is God telling me. Where do I need a green light in my life? When traffic is flowing, I ask myself where do I need to flow in my life. When traffic is bottled up, I ask myself what needs bottling in my life.

When I get yelled at, I ask what is God’s message in this interaction. When I get smiled at, I ask what is God’s message.

I find this fun and useful and it hones my intuition. When I am wondering about something, I ask God to increase my desire for it if it is His will. If it is not His will, I ask God to decrease my desire.

Intuitions are text messages from God (I learned in 12-Step programs).

Can there be anything useful in believing that the creator of the universe cares about my life? You bet. Can there be anything useful in believing there is no God? You bet. Then you can see life as a competition between various forms of life. Without faith, you can see this competition more clearly and you know there are no good guys and bad guys. With faith, you can divide between good and evil. Both perspectives have their uses. I employ both of them.
