HAPPY SABBATH + The Tetra Pac Lego God + PRAYER: Father, Forgive Me!









I Made An Amazing Discovery!
I Had Put My God 
In Cut-To-Fit Pieces 
In A Foil-Lined Box
Preserving Him
For Those Occasions 
When
He Would Save Me From 
A Real Or Imagined Attack!

My Mind Was Broad
AND
I Had "Created" A 
Specialized
Elite
Proficient 
God Force!

-- I Get Chills When I Think Of 
The Myriad Gods That
I Had Fashioned For Myself! --

I Had Fashioned:

A Special-Occasion God!
An Emergency God!
An "I Need A Favor!" God!
A Ready-To-Listen To My Complaints God!
A Sounding-Board God!
A Pat-Me-On-My-Back God!
A Save-Me-From-My-Self God!
A God-To-Be-Ignored-As-Convenient God!
A "Pity Me - I'm Your Child!" God!
And On and On!

Do You Get The Picture?!

This Was Idolatry!!

Well, It Finally Dawned On Me
That All Of These 
Different Occasion Gods' Requirements
- Per My Self -
Were Really Wearing Me Down To A Nubbin!

There Had To Be A Better Way!
There Had To Be A Better Way To Pray!
There Had To Be A Better God!
There Had To Be A Better God Who Has More Say!

What I Needed 
More Than Anything 
Was 
The All-Seeing
The All-Knowing
The Ever-Present
Almighty
True
Living
Eternal
Holy
GOD!!

I Proceeded To Have Me A Think
AND ... Lo!
AND ... Behold!





Did Not God Just Say:
"Call On Me 
AND 
I Will ...!"

SHOW YOU

The Great
The Mighty (Marvelous)
What You ( I and Eye!? ) Don't Know!

He Did Not Say He Will "Snow" Me!



PRAYER:

Father,  I Owe You An Apology
For Believing In A False Theology
Which Caused Me
To Indulge In Great Folly
Forgetting That You Are The God Holy!

Father,  I Take The Position Today
That The World And Its Deceits
I Will No Longer Attention Pay!

I Will Recombine You
To Your Rightful Estate
AND
I Will Cast My Lot On You
AND
You Will Then Be Responsible For My Fate!

Forgive Me,  Father
For Letting My Lack of Faith
My Lack of Understanding
My Unwillingness To Believe
AND
My Seeming Inability To Trust
Make You Less Than You Are To Me!

Father, 
You Are My God
AND
Come What May
In You  - The Holy God
I Will Wholly Trust!
I Love You,  Lord!
AMEN.
