The Extraordinary Life of a Misfit

Ever wonder what to do with a fistful of dandelions? Check out this photo by GrainnePhotography

My sister-in-law is having contractions. My husband and I await the phone call that we can travel to meet our son. Friends all around us are battling job loss and health concerns and the juggling of multiple (difficult) responsibilities.

But here is what I know:

God never tires of hearing from us.

In Psalm 55:22, we are instructed, “Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you” (ESV). And incredibly–unbelievably, perhaps–we aren’t given any limits, account parameters, or maximum prayers allowed in one day.

In the history of the human race, no man has ever taken too much to God.

And yet, when the trials come and the tribulations push us to our limits, our initial response is often total loss about what to do.

We need more than a casual commitment to prayer. If we expect God to listen to us, isn’t it fair that He should expect us to talk to Him?
