choose me God!

farmer prays for rain
builder prays for none
each one asks the Lord
to be His chosen one

    this post existed for a full 16 hours with “chose” instead of “choose ” in the title. Daah? Three reasons:

    1.) my tendency to post before thouroughly proofreading and tagging (premature articulation).

    2.) posting too late at night /early morning. (need to get my lovely wife Karina to proof read but she is usually asleep by 10 pm.)
    3.) I am a doy boy. Doy.

    This is quite embarassing: “chose me God!” . Maybe I subconsciously wanted to convey the subject as speaking to God from a predeterminism perspective.

    No, it was just stupidity. I think I will disappear for a few days…my wife is applauding…

    Did you also write the last line “to be His choosen one?” 🙂

    On any given post I am capable of such a blender. I mean blunder. 🙂

    what they don’t know is
    She’ll answer the trees’ prayers first
    then get back to them

    -no fair. you can’t make such a tragic posting mistake and then correct it before i’ve had a chance to mock…uh, confirm it.

  6. qazse Says:

    phases of the moon
    are a slow wink to the trees
    She will never tell

    – too bad, if you weren’t in church all morning you might have caught me sleeping.

    the previous two comments remind me of a movie scene where Liquidquick and I are opposing haiku fencers. Our sabers clang together with each haiku. After each clang one of us has a cavalier quip for the other as we push away from our locked stance and resume our death defying battle. This goes on for three hours.

  8. liquidquick Says:

    the trees dance at night
    their offering is preferred
    men sleep unaware

    -three hours?!? we do get a chinese food break in the middle right? oddly enough, mead actually does fence so i might use him as a stand-in while i slip out for some lo-mein.

    I really appreciate your post. When we are in the world there will always be these opposing prayers, but I think that God wants to pull us up from our earthly ground level to a higher spiritual level. Our prayer should not be give me rain, but your will be done, make me a blessing to those around me.

    This is a pretty heavy post but I think it spells out today’s believers call.

    I also had a post with a very similar title:

    “God Chooses Us”

    Reading your links I was struck by how you know who is right and who is wrong.

  11. thebigpicmin Says:

    Qazse,
    To know who is right and who is wrong I simply apply the word and listen for the correction of the Holy Spirit.

    eg. when talking about “Lording over” leaders, the Bible [Mat20:26-27]says “among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must become your slave”

    Let me just share

    God Bless

    Thank you Glenn. My belief is that God does not have anything to do with the weather. To pray for something at the expense of an other and believe that God chooses is absurd to me. Peace, Herb
