You just never know from which field a ball of life question may come and say howdy.Between you and me, my crystal ball broke so long ago I forgot it never did work.
Then I got some real advice, ALWAYS expect the unexpected. Have not had much luck there either..catch is always. Sure I Google for the state capital of Florida or local weather, but I'm not talking these types of questions. But I'm still left in a lurch. If you have not doped this out by know, you know where the answers really are. For real life questions that are ALL WAYS answered ALWAYS, just talk with the lord, He sure beats a broken, never did work crystal ball.

Alex Trebek wants to know the question while most of us want the answers.For example, time,temp, tee or takeoff time, game scores, event times, deadlines, repairmen coming when, final exams set for, that's how many for dinner Saturday.Amazingly, we still have time for the real core questions of daily life. To me, this sounds like time to talk with the Lord.The reliable ANSWERS you need are waiting for you now.

Heartfelt thanks to a prison chaplain we will call Ken.While serving adult felons, he initiated a group program to inspire prisoners to talk with the Lord daily
on their specific concerning questions. At the first meeting he told them forget answers for the next heist or scam, for the Lord's answers take a better uplifting turn. This turn turns to non-abusive solutions. At the end of that initial meeting Ken asked them to invite others to join. Second meeting saw more inmates coming in. Ken
felt ok to add a new element. When starting a conversation with a fellow inmate, say.."I Did It Today". Then existing members are asked to reply, "I Did It Today"
If the inmate response is "Did What?" is time to talk about talking with the Lord and how the Lord helped me. All these efforts are gentle and non confronting. In the future Ken can see an exception to released inmates inability to communicate with each other in order to get the Lord's answers. Could this type of talk keep more released prisoners from playing boomerang, instead just PRISONERS TALKING WITH THE LORD?

today, ]
Last column was about how to amaze yourself by talking with the Lord about your daily life questions. Now is the time then to show you the amusing side of the Lord. No, He is not a standup comedian, a satirical commentator, not prone to pratfalls for laughs. But if you are seeking some honest good humor in your day, He is one of the best sources I have found. For the Lord possesses a real sense of non-hurtful humor, never putting you down, but allowing you to, if needed, laugh at yourself. That factor offers real comic relief for me. Ready to AMUSE YOURSELF today, just talk with the Lord.

It's great to amaze family,friends, co-workers, and neighbors. But it is also great to allow time for your self to be amazed. It is not as difficult as you may think. Gene's not a genius, but when I have my daily talks with the Lord I am amazed by the broad range of helpful answers He has in store. As the Lord personalizes the answers, some answers that amaze me would leave you cold or vice versa. Boy, this amazement is free, there as needed with loving care. When you want to AMAZE YOURSELF, just talk with the Lord.
