I talk to God about everything ... I even ask for a parking place

I talk to God about every thing in my life. I tell Him about my ups and downs. I tell Him when I am hurting and lonely. I tell Him how thankful I am that He is part of my life. I talk to Him all the time ..... I talk to Him about my work, my finances, my health, my dreams and desires. I ask Him to search me and know me and lead me in the path that is right for me. I always pray that His will alone be done in my life and that He will use me to glorify Him alone.

Another thing I also ask Him for is a parking place whenever I drive to work in Hospital Kuala Lumpur. If I am 5 minutes late, the parking near to my office will be filled and I really hate double parking and blocking another car ... so usually I will end up parking at the farthest parking near the football field where it takes me about 10-15 minutes to reach my office by walking. Yesterday morning, I was frantically praying for a a parking place as I about 5 minutes past 730 am to reach the hospital...... drove near the covered parking and I noticed an empty spot but I thought it was reserved for someone else as there was a yellow label on the floor and there was a Toyota Vios following very closely behind... after I passed the spot only I realized that "Hey I have parked there before !!! " Oppss it was too late to reverse as the Vios was already squeezing into the parking place.... and I smiled to myself ..... God answers prayers but sometimes I am just too blind to see the answers and the blessing. I said a prayer of thanks to God for the parking place and for blessing the Vios driver and I asked Him to make me more alert and more receptive to the way He works and be alert when He answers my prayer.

Matthew 7:7 Holman Christian Standard Bible

Keep asking, and it will be given to you. Keep searching, and you will fine. Keep knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who searches finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

Awesome! I believe we should consult the Lord in everything that we do! So, we can be in HIS most perfect will. Even the way we comb our hair, we should ask Him.

Yea, we sometimes as Him for things but it seems that He never provides, coz its NOT time. But hey, it is always great to be in contact with Him 24/7!

We may sometimes fail because we never listen to His still small voice... BUT He never gives up on us!!! And we will eventually recognise His voice more clearly.

Ain't that AWESOME??!! Our God is a GREAT God indeed! Praise the Lord! =o)
