Seeing the Signs – or Getting Smacked in the Forehead with Them

For anyone who’s seen Bruce Almighty, one of my favorite scenes is when Bruce is asking for a sign and a truck pulls in front of him full of roadway signs such as Stop, Detour, etc.

Some of God’s signs are subtle, but obvious if one is paying attention. When those don’t work, then he (I can imagine him sighing and rolling his eyes when I reach this point) throws out even more obvious signs.

As I complained in my last entry, I’ve lost all motivation to write. It’s been a struggle, but I think I’ve finally reached a point where I must. Writing is such a large part of who I am, to stop is almost akin to not breathing. I’ve asked — albeit mostly subconsciously — what God wants me to write.

Since asking the question, I’ve received at least four emails about writing query letters.

Other than a phone call from the Guy Upstairs, could it be more obvious?

Just call me a knucklehead for being so dense. Thankfully God is patient (even if he does roll his eyes at me).
