God Speaks

Man reading from the holy bible, close up

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

Some years ago while vacationing in Florida, USA, my wife Karen and I were fascinated by a number of billboards along the highways advertising messages from God. They were white letters plainly printed on a black background. Nothing else. There was no indication on the billboards as to who paid for the advertising, so I cannot acknowledge the source(s) but can only voice my appreciation to those who originated them. Here’s a sampling of the messages:

FOLLOW ME – GOD

WE NEED TO TALK – GOD

BIG BANG THEORY, YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING – GOD

I LOVE YOU AND YOU AND YOU AND YOU AND . . . – GOD

TELL YOUR KIDS I LOVE THEM – GOD

LET’S MEET AT MY HOUSE SUNDAY BEFORE THE GAME – GOD

C’MON OVER AND BRING THE KIDS – GOD

WHAT PART OF “THOU SHALT NOT . . .” DIDN’T YOU UNDERSTAND? – GOD

LOVED THE WEDDING, INVITE ME TO THE MARRIAGE – GOD

DON’T MAKE ME COME DOWN THERE – GOD

THAT “LOVE THY NEIGHBOR” THING . . . I MEANT IT – GOD

NEED DIRECTIONS? – GOD

YOU THINK IT’S HOT HERE? – GOD

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHERE YOU’RE GOING? – GOD

HAVE YOU READ MY # 1 BEST SELLER? THERE WILL BE A TEST – GOD

MY WAY IS THE HIGHWAY – GOD

WILL THE ROAD YOU’RE ON GET YOU TO MY PLACE? – GOD
