We have one of those key pads on our garage and I have tried everything I can think of to get it to work. You know that I have these wonderful neighbors who do lots of things for us, including cleaning my whole entire house while I was out of town so I could come home to a clean house. I have wanted to get the garage pad to work so they could just come over whenever they wanted. I was so bummed that I couldn’t get it to work. It is nice to be able to have a neighbor who can just let themselves in when they need something, like an IZZY, our new favorite drink. Or when I need them to clean my house because my husband offered to have a couple stay here while we were out of town and I didn’t clean before I left and Brad was here for a week without me. Yes, it was a mess.
So, I have been very disappointed that I couldn’t get the garage code to work and I was telling my neighbor, Melanie this. She simply said, “why don’t you just make me a key to your house?” Well, well, well, if I am not the blondest thing around. I never thought of that. Have you ever done this, just have one solution to the problem in your head and not thought of the other possibilities?
I think I do this with God often. I think I know the answer to the problem and this is how it needs to be solved and I don’t leave any room for God to answer the way He wants. I “put God in a box” of my earthly solutions to things. I know that “His ways are not my ways” yet I try to find the answers in my small very blonde brain. Today I am asking God to give me His answers to my questions, His solutions to my problems, and His assurance to my doubts!
