By Charles Towne


Imagine, yes, imagine that you have company and you are sitting in your living room.  Your guest is not the mayor or the governor, and he is not the president.  No, he is none other than Papa God.  What are you going to say to him? after all, He is the almighty!

Are you going to try to impress Him with your great wisdom?  Or are you going to tell him how a family member or some brother or sister in your church slighted you?  Or perhaps you are going to share the latest bit of juicy gossip?

Are you going to be honest? Or are you going to embellish the truth? Gild the lily so to speak?

Remember, Papa God is sitting there in all His glory.  He is gazing into your eyes, your very soul, not with condemnation or judgment, but with more love than you have ever known.

Or just perhaps you are going to accuse Him, to tell Him how unfair He has been to you, after all, He could have given you the “smart” genes.  He could have made you handsome, or beautiful!  Or He could have created you rich as Job, or wise as Solomon.

Or perhaps you are going to give Him your thoughts on global warming, abortion, and that “love your neighbor thing”.  Hey, you know stuff don’t you?

Hmm, what if Papa God was going to spend the day with you, yeah, what if.

Just some food for thought.  Chaz

  1. What an interesting “What if”? I think I will probably be pondering that one all day. Great Food for Thought, Charles….

  2. Mr. Mike, Mike, When you really consider it, perhaps thanking Him and praising Him are the highest form of prayer! What do you think? Chaz

  3. Dear NH, His word tells us that “whatever is pure… whatever is of good report… think on these things.” Pretty good advice don’t you think? Chaz

  4. That’s a really good one, Chuck!
    I guess I get the closest with God in the early morning, when I’m sitting in the backyard, the sun is just coming up and the birds are singing their songs to the Him. It is so peaceful and quiet….I feel like He IS there! Yes, that is when
    I truly thank Him and ask Him to help me live EVERYDAY with an
    attitude of gratitude.

  5. Dear CSG, you pretty well have it all together dear lady. He loves you so very much dear lady. I think He likes to sit with His kids. Chaz

  6. Another great one Charlie. I don’t know where you get these ideas from but this one is a super one and it really got me thinking. Keep them coming.

  7. There is a part of me that thinks He is there/here already but to answer the question, I would like to think I would say nothing just observe but if I go by history, I would say something stupid, inane, idiotic and He would smile and love me still!

  8. Ahh, you are so right Richard, and that is the object of my hypothetical question. If we really believe He is here why are we not talking to Him more and acting like we really believe Him? When I say “we” I am naturally including myself. Chaz
