Hey, Look Where You're Going! Exemplify

I remember sitting down one night several years back. I was on the floor beside my bed, facing the window, and came before God in prayer. The tone was completely serious as I asked Him for the answer to two questions. I wanted to know if I should go forward with an accountability partnership with Susie, and if I should go out on a date with Ralph.

With all the humility that I could muster (not much), I pleaded for an answer to my question while reminding God that I was on a very specific timeline. In fact, I told Him that I needed to act as soon as we were finished talking and, on that note, I appreciated His full attention and participation.

By the end of that three minute conversation, I felt God telling me that Susie was a no, and Ralph was a yes. Two months later, I found out that I had my signals crossed. Susie was a yes for many years, and Ralph should have been a no from the get-go...
