Keep Asking

Dear God: It probably happens once a day. “Which foot does this go on?” asks 4-year-old Tommy as he holds up his shoes to me. He doesn’t mind asking, knowing that if he puts his shoes on the wrong feet, it will not only be uncomfortable, but he’ll have to start all over again getting his shoes on.

Jesus, I could learn a lot from Tommy, but I dislike asking, even though you’ve invited us to. “And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.” Luke 11:9 NLT I don’t think You just mean material things. Nearly every time I decide to guess and not ask direction, I end up with the equivalent of sore feet. Help my hard headedness. Help me to trust that you will give me what I’m asking you for. Make me childlike.

In Jesus’ name. Amen
