Thought Pop

Over the weekend someone came into my office and told me they wanted to be in the Christmas Show. This person was baffled when I said there weren't any spots open. He/she was also uninterested in helping backstage or being a part of future videos. This someone was only interested in the biggest spotlight we have. I found this quite frustrating on numerous levels.

But then today, as I tore down the stage, a thought popped through my head. I do the same thing with God. I want _____ and I kind of just want it now. I'm not interested in paying my dues or getting a different version of ______. I want what I want now and I'm baffled when I don't get it. He must find that quite frustrating. On numerous levels.

ok, I get it. I'm not in the play. I'll stop asking...just don't ask me to do any of those crappy backstage jobs again. I was born for the stage!
PS what about the Easter Pageant?

PPS and I liked your point about how we treat God like our own personal Genie. That's right in my wheelhouse

but seriously, I could sing, dance...whatever you need

You should really let Sean in your little play. I've seen him perform live. He's the David Caruso of the stage.
