The Comfort of Being Known

A long time friend went with me for a medical procedure today. I invited her into the room where all the questions are asked. It felt good to know that as I responded to inquiries regarding my health history and lifestyle behavior none of the answers would be a surprise to her.

When the nurse explained to both of us that after my “conscious sedation” I would probably be repetitive and forgetful my friend and I answered in concert that this would not be different from any other day.

Who knows you and how did it happen?

Do you have anyone with whom you do not need to pretend?

How aware are you that God knows your thoughts before you speak?
Does this give you freedom to talk to Him about anything and everything?

Sometimes we complicate this conversation with God by calling it prayer.
