So I have a really great friend whom I talk to and text throughout the day. I would also venture to say Google is one of our friends. We do a lot of Googling for each other, not that we couldn’t do it for ourselves, but you know, just to help each other out. We Google the best price on something, how to get the baby to sleep through the night, what does propitiation mean, and lots of medical issues. Last night my friend text me a prayer request related to a medical condition. I put down what I was doing and begun to pray. I am really trying to pray with a wholly focused heart and mind but mid prayer I had the urge to quit and Google her medical condition. I pushed the urge aside and ended my prayer but as I finished this line slammed into my heart; I do not need Google when I’ve got God! This truth resounded through me and wouldn’t leave me. I spun the comparison through my mind. What am I searching for? What am I taking to Google that I should be taking to God? Who am I trusting? Where does my dependency lie? God has all the answers. He calms all my questions and fears. He guides me and provides all I need. Why should I turn to Google when I can turn to the God who made the universe, walked on water and raised the dead and fed five thousand? Everything I need can be found in Him. Every. Thing.
I wanted to get these thoughts out quickly so I just grabbed a nearby tag, threw down some alphas and scribbled a prayer on the back. Later I printed a picture of my keyboard and clipped them by Matthew 7:7-11. I can see myself coming back to this passage later and adding more notes or art so I will just leave these clipped in for now.
