Please don't think I'm making fun of my Heavenly Father or prayer here. Because I believe He is the only one who saved me today...
Have you ever found yourself hanging upside down in the dentist's chair and he/she says...
"Well, I'm gonna TRY this one but it MAY end up being a root canal and then we'll have to REFER you out to a specialist. OK, then! Let's get started!"
And I got right with God in about 1.2 seconds.
Then I began fervent intercessory prayer. For myself!
"OH please GOD, no PAIN! OH please GOD, no PAIN!
OH please GOD no root canal! OH please GOD no root canal!"
It turned out alright...for now. BUT, if it starts hurting so bad that "even Tylenol doesn't help" then "we may need to go ahead with that root canal."
I think I'd rather go ahead with an extraction!
Or dropping a bowling ball on my foot.
Or piercing my eyelids with needles....
Ummm, ok, you get the idea.
And I have the added bonus of being forgiven now for all the naughty things I have done in the last couple of weeks.
I needed to "catch up" anyway.
