A Conversation God: Do you really think you should be doing that? Woman: YIKES! Oh, sorry, Lord! I forgot You were there! God: Do you really think you should be doing that? Woman: What? I am being industrious, doing a perfectly legitmate, honest work. God: While you are being so industrious, should you be having that kind of attitude? Woman: **busted!** God: What kind of attitude do you have today? Woman: Resentment. God: Is your resentful attitude helping or contributing anything? Woman: Well, its making ME feel better! God: Oh? Woman: Your right, Lord, the longer I think about it, the angrier I get, the more resentful I get, the more my mind is buzzing until I cant think straight! God: What kind of attitude SHOULD you be having? Woman: Love. God: And what is love? Woman: Love is patient, love is kind, love is thoughtful, love believes all things, hopes all things, love sees the best in people, expects the best, does not keep a record of wrongs.... God: .................... Woman: Ok, Lord. I see where You are going with this, but You dont understand! They.... God: I am dealing with YOU right now. What should your attitude be if you are to continue in your walk with ME? Woman: I should put a SMILE on my FACE! And sing a little DITTY! While I am doing what was asked of me so unthoughtfully! God: While you are gritting your teeth? Woman: Well..... God: What could you be doing instead? Woman:......Lord, I thank You for the opportunity to serve. God: That's better, keep going. Woman: Lord, I ask that you bless the people that have asked this of me. Bless them with Your presence and grace and blessings. Give them happiness and answer to prayers. Lord, I ask that you forgive me for my resentful attitude and hard heart. Please make me clean and right and take out this stony heart, and replace it with a soft one. A heart of service and blessing, love and good cheer. God: That's better, now dont you feel better? Woman: Yes, Father, I do. Thank You.
