Just some thoughts:
One recent morning I stopped by a church (chapel) to pray.
Hadn’t really planned on doing such. Hadn’t really entered my mind prior to getting in my car.
I was on the way to else where but for some reason as I drove a ways, just felt to do such. Don’t know how many times I have heard the line “trust your instincts”
The thought (prayer) came to me as I was driving and when I saw this church I found myself pulling in the church’s parking lot. Went in saw, two other people in the sanctuary, found a comfortable place and sat down. I guess I pray like I do a lot of other things, pretty quickly. Not with a lot of patience. If he’s listening I don’t take up a lot of his time.
I called names of my family, remembered friends dealing with health and emotional issues. Even found myself remembering some I had not thought about in sometime. Acknowledged some good things that had taken place in recent times… we need to say our “thank you’s.” I know I am too often more of a “asker” rather than a “thanker.”
They say the prayers of a righteous man avails much. I don’t put myself in that righteous category but seems the older I get I do become more of an “availer, I do a lot of asking.
Can’t explain exactly why I stopped this morning, but I guess not everything one does in their life has to be fully explained. Probably good we don’t always have to explain ourselves. Maybe sometimes we don’t even understand the “whys.” I find that more true as I age.
You, ever do something that you cannot fully explain why?
