The man whispered : “God speak to me”
and a bird sang, but the man did not hear
So the man yelled : “God speak to me”
and the thunder rolled across the sky, but the man did not listen
The man looked around and said “God let me see you”
And a star shone brightly, but the man did not notice
And the man shouted : “God show me a miracle”
And a life was born, but the man did not know
So the man cried out in despair : “Touch me God and let me know you are there”
Whereupon God reached down and touched the man. But the man brushed the butterfly away and walked on.
Don’t miss out on God’s blessings just because they aren’t packaged the way you expect them to be.
