“The best teachers show you where to look, but don’t tell you what to see.”
– Alexandra K. Trenfor
We often think God is only in the answers. But sometimes we can connect more with him in the questions. In the unknowns. That’s when we reach out to him with our why’s and how’s and when’s.
Have a conversation with God using just questions. How would you fill in the blanks? Try to think of questions you haven’t already asked him.
- Why, God, is _____ ?
- How, God, will _____ ?
- When, God, is _____ ?
Now look back at your questions. What do they reveal to you about what you think about God? About your relationship with him? About what you expect him to know or do?
Use this exercise as an invitation into previously unexplored areas with God.
