Making a List...

I'm a list-maker. I make menu lists, grocery lists, and cleaning lists. I jot down errands and to do's. I also have a mental list of things I plan to ask God when I get to Heaven. Things like Why did You create mosquitoes? and other such deep, philosophical questions.

Whenever I don't understand something, I tell R that I'm adding it to the list. It's been an on-going joke. Still, there are lots of things I'd like to ask when I meet Him face-to-face.

And when that time comes, you will ask nothing of Me [you will need to ask Me no questions].
John 16:23a (AMP)

Jesus says we won't have to ask anymore questions. Whether it's a diagnosis, a family tragedy, financial hardship, or a pesky insect...either the answer will be revealed, or it won't matter one whit. Either the question has eternal significance, or it doesn't.

I don't know about you, but that makes me think a bit about the questions I've been asking Him lately.

Wow....I've never thot of it that way.....well, that's kind of nice though that I don't have to try and remember the questions when I see Him...I have a terrible memory! hehe.

I am so with you on being a list girl--gotta love having a Palm Pilot again because now all my lists go everywhere with me!

And love that truth--that either answers will come to our questions or the questions won't matter any more...

I am a list maker too! I love the idea of making a list of questions for God--it will be so fun to see mysteries unveiled.

I think I'm going to have to make my own list. And, yes, we'll either know the answers to our questions or the questions will no longer matter to us one way or the other.This is a comforting blog. Thanks for sharing it.

I think when I get there, and am face to face with Him... maybe nothing else will matter - I'll be so in awe that I will be completely speechless, except to cry "Holy, holy, holy!"

What a day that will be!
