Blake and I had been arguing, so I took a walk with Tootsie to go cool off. Now, Blake and I don’t argue very often, but like all couples, when we do, it’s painful. Not physically, mind you, but for me it felt like my heart and mind were on fire. My gut was in a knot and I was struggling not to cry in public. I was miserable.
As Tootsie and I walked along the street of our gated community, I asked God (Allah, the Universe, Divine, Source, Force….) for help.
“Dear God, I hate feeling like this! I want to feel better. I know this will all eventually work itself out, but I don’t know how. I need to feel better but I just don’t know what to do. Please help me feel better!”
As I came around the corner to the next street, I looked up in the sky and that’s when I saw it. Protruding from the storm clouds was the biggest cock and balls I have ever seen in my life!! It was 50 stories tall (I’m guessing) and just absolutely immense! (I sincerely wish I’d had a camera, but this picture from Google will have to suffice).
I laughed out loud!
I clapped and giggled and thanked God for this wonderful, inspiring gift! After all, who created the cock and balls, but God Himself, right?! Not only did God create the cock and balls (and everything else) but also, fortunately for everyone, He created the sense of humor! One of the best gifts of all!
What a magnificent sight! All of that angst and suffering in my heart had been replaced by joy and laughter! All that pain I had been feeling, which had seemed so solid and immovable just minutes before, now seemed to be completely gone. Like clouds being blown by the wind, my pain had moved on. That’s the real beauty of inspiration.
One thing can change everything.
I watched the clouds change back into shapeless puffs while I thanked God for hearing my
plea and coming to my rescue.
I realize now that it was only because I asked for help that I got it. Not unlike the “Divine download” I got the day the analogy for You’re the Boat came to me, asking for help was the first step to feeling better.
So, what do you think, my friendly blog reader.
Have you had a time when you just know God stepped in to help you out?
I’d love to hear about it in the comments below.
