If we could just ask our Magic 8 Balls....

A few weeks ago my kids and grandkids went to our favorite local pizza place to meet my Dad for dinner. At this restaurant they are smart enough to supply the kiddies with all kinds of fun items to keep them busy while they are waiting for their food and if you have ever been out with a couple of 2 year olds and a 4 year old, you know how important it is to keep them occupied while waiting for the food. :-) Well, this place has a supply of Magic 8 balls for the kids to play with and of course Gommy(me) had to play with them too. And as I was playing I was thinking "wouldn't it be nice, if we could just ask the Magic 8 ball about our future?" Questions like "Hey Magic 8 ball, will this be a good year for me?" The Magic 8 Ball has 20 different answers it could give you:
As I see it, yes
It is certain
It is decidedly so
Most likely
Outlook good
Signs point to yes
Without a doubt
Yes – definitely
You may rely on it
Reply hazy, try again
Ask again later
Better not tell you now
Cannot predict now
Concentrate and ask again
Don't count on it
My reply is no
My sources say no
Outlook not so good
Very doubtful

I looked up the Magic 8 Ball on Wikipedia and it says 10 of the answers are affirmative, 5 are negative and 5 are non committal...so I'm guessing you have a better chance of getting an affirmative answer. But I know life doesn't come with a Magic 8 Ball to tell us what's going to happen in this New Year and you guys have been around my blog long enough to know what I believe and WHO I believe is in charge of my life. So do I know what this year will hold for me, my Magic 8 Ball answer would be "very doubtful" but if I ask " do I believe HE has it all under control for me?", my Magic 8 Ball answer says "Without a Doubt"...............

Makes sense to me!

It's nice to know the answer to "he has it under control?" is "Without a Doubt"! Who needs a Magic 8 Ball when you have the Creator of the Universe as your savior? Happy New Year!

Amen Sister! I promise"He" will not wake up tomorrow and say, Hmmm, I sure didn't expect that to happen! He is definitely in charge and knows it all!

Kat said...

Amen! And aren't we blessed to know He holds us in His mighty hands so we need not fear.


Donna said...

Amen! I don't think I'd want to know the future if He didn't have a hand in it.
