The One where *HE* writes this time!

I never wanted to go this long with no posts.
Between not having a working computer...and a lack of just didn't happen.


I have something very lovely to share with all of you. 
Someone DID get inspired recently! And he has written something for me to share with all of you!

So enjoy John-David's writing today...


So, after I got off work the other night, I was watching one of my favorite TV shows on Netflix.  In the middle of the show, there is an exchange between the two main characters.  And one of the characters said something that was almost SPOT ON with something I've always wondered when it comes to how God views our relationship with Him. Especially when we do something that displeases Him.

To set up the exchange you are about to read...the show is "Doctor Who".  The two characters are the Doctor and his traveling companion, Clara. Clara's boyfriend just died in a horrible car accident, and she wants the Doctor to use his time machine to bring him back to life.  But in asking the Doctor to do this, she tries to control him by throwing away all the keys to his time machine if he tells her that he won't help.  After revealing to her that everything she just did was the result of a dream that the Doctor induced on Clara to see how far she would go, he says he will help her get her boyfriend back.

The following conversation is word for word...

CLARA: You're going to help me?

THE DOCTOR: Why wouldn't I help you?

CLARA:  Because of what I just did.

THE DOCTOR:  You betrayed me, betrayed my trust. You betrayed our friendship. You betrayed everything I've ever stood for. You let me down!

CLARA: Then why are you helping me?

THE DOCTOR: Why? Do you think I care for you so little that betraying me would make a difference?

{A couple minutes later...}

CLARA: I don't deserve a friend like you.

THE DOCTOR: I'm exactly what you deserve.

When I heard the doctor say those things, it literally made me pause the show and think about how that's just like God.  Despite everything we do as humans to disappoint Him, He still wants to be our best and closest friend and help us.  Now, that doesn't mean He'll give us everything our hearts desire.  Because, like children, what we want isn't always what's best for us.  What it does mean, is that no matter what we do to Him and His reputation, it has no bearing on how He views our relationship to Him.  He still wants to be there for us and help us achieve the great things He has in store for us...if we let Him. 

Thank you, God...for your little reminders of who you are through everyday things!
