“Just Say Okay.”

The week has been full of a ridiculous amount of blessings, and in true warped yellow lego fashion, God has to do a bit of prodding in order to provide assurance.

Because to receive a gift is in itself an act of trust.

Just as Zechariah questioned the angel about John the Baptist, and Mary marveled and wondered about Jesus, these great gifts from God often have a “Who, me?” aspect about them.

Especially if this gift might have some large amount of responsibility attached to it.

I envision this conversation between myself and God:

God: Just say okay.

Me: To what?

God: You’ll find out.

Me: What is it?

God: A blessing.

Me: Really?

God: Really.

Me: So what is it?

God: Just say okay.

Me: I don’t know…

God: Trust me.

Me: That’s hard for me.  You know that.

God:  I do know that.  But I love you.  I want to shower you with blessings.  I’m here for you.  All the time.  And I believe you can do this.

Me: Do what?

God:  Just say okay.

Me:  Well, urrrr,hhmmmm, uhhh..okay.

God:  Awesome.  Here are the results of your wife’s ultrasound.

Yes, my wife and I went in for her first (7 week) ultrasound to get the first glimpse of the baby developing.

And it turns out, everything is fine.

Both babies are doing well.

Yep.

Both.

Twins.

Me: AHHHHHHHH.

God: Like I said, I’m always here with you.
