Is it wrong to ask God for a sign? I don’t doubt that God exists. I have been a believer all my life. I am not having a crisis of faith. In fact, things are going pretty well. I have my health, an 8 month old daughter, another baby on the way (10 weeks), a loving wife, and a job. My boss is allowing me to move home to Florida after working in Georgia for 7 years, which makes me very happy. I wish I was clear of a few debts, but other than that my life is good.
I guess I’m looking for a good punch in the gut. Something to reaffirm my beliefs. I’m not overly big on dream interpretation, but I know dreams can have a meaning (i.e. Joseph’s interpretation of Pharoah’s dreams in Genesis). I constantly go to sleep at night hoping that when I wake, I will have had a divine message sent to me. Again, I am not asking God for proof of his existence. I am not putting him to the test. He just made me very oblivious to things. I am sure He is talking to me, but I am shutting it out. Both times before my wife came up pregnant, she dreamed an angel told her. I know that sounds weird, but it is true. She told me the dreams and then sure enough she missed her next period.
Am I wrong in looking for a sign? I don’t want to be a Doubting Thomas… but I envy his opportunity to touch Jesus.
