After I signed the papers to sell the condo, I began to question my decision.  And I was sick with vertigo and a sinus infection so I had a lot of time to sit and think.  I pulled it together to go to church Sunday morning.  The sermon was about Psalm 131.  In this Psalm, David is trying not to concern himself with matters too great for him.  He has calmed and quieted himself, and puts his hope in the Lord.  I go home thinking that was a good and timely message but not particularly soothing as I look at the uncertain future.  

Monday morning I read a chapter in the book A Praying Life by Paul Miller.  He writes about the mystery of prayer.  And he references Psalm 131.  I start to pay attention.  

The author says that “prayer is a moment of incarnation — God with us.  God involved in the details of my life.”  Really?  God wants to be involved in the intimate details of my life?  Down to the simple things like finding a parking space?  I am not sure….

But I still have this vertigo andI feel like crap so I am headed to my ear doctor — and in this large office building downtown there are only two parking spots reserved for the Otologist and so I try it.  I pray that one of these two spots will be open.  And one is open.
