I had to leave my love but it didn’t make sense
And I asked God, “Why does it have to be so?”
“God, can’t my love and I just be together?”
I awaited a response and when I didn’t hear back, I called again.
God, are you there? Did you hear my question?
Life’s funny that way, I guess, as I encounter each day
With new eyes, a new spirit and a freshness about me
And I go through life with purpose, no meandering
As I carry on day by day my love carried on too
How do you go through life I asked my love
And he answered, with purpose, with inspiration
And I said, “Don’t you wonder ‘why’ my love?”
He said, “I wondered, yes, but then I prayed and asked God.”
What did he say I asked? My love said, “He said not right now.”
“What!?” I exclaimed. “He told you that? He told you that?”
He said, “Yeah, he told me”. I said, “When?”
He said nonchalantly, “When I prayed about it.”
Then I realized…I forgot to check my voicemail…
I prayed, but I didn’t wait for a response…I had “life” going on…but God did leave me a vmail and I had gotten the SAME message!!!!
Moral of the Story: God always answers and really does talk to all of us so, don’t forget to check your voicemail if you didn’t wait for a response when you initially placed the prayer.
