For Something to Believe

Today has just been a lazy Saturday for me.  Sure, I did a little bit of laundry, but I mostly read and enjoyed a few books I hadn't read in a long time.  I'm not sure why, but I haven't started the Bonhoeffer book yet.  Lemony Snicket was interesting.  I could see how kids would like it.

Anyway, in the midst of reading and waiting for the dryer to buzz, I just felt an overwhelming sense of frustration with a long list of things in life--some my life and some just life in general.

I finally just looked at God (or into the other space in my room) and said, out of frustration, "Give me something to believe in."

No break.  No pause.  No waiting.  He said, "Believe Me."
