I am reading an amazing book and I am stuck at two simple words in the first chapter:
The book is incredibly well written with words dancing all around, and I long to drink it in, but I cannot go on. I cannot leave this line:
Now you and I know that I am way too religious to ever utter these words, right? I mean, He is God and I am not. I love Him with all I am and have. He is my life.
But I know that I have said “no, God” many times. Many more times than I can count. Big time.
No, God, I think my way is better today.
No, God, this is not the way I wanted it to go.
No, God, You are definitely wrong on this one. I know better.
No, God, I won’t do it.
No, God, that is just not the way I roll.
“No, God” is “no God” every time.
No God in this situation. God is not relevant right now, I am. No God.
I don’t want You here right now. No God.
In Psalm 14, verse 1 I read, “The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God.”
