Dentist and God

Since I've been to my new dentist office they've been telling me I need this and that done to my teeth. Just minor things but still a lot. One procedure I did want done was to get my wisdom tooth removed. It's been giving me problems. So I had to go to the hospital for a consultation because I need a special surgery. I had to be there by 6am. The whole morning I was like who goes to the dentist at 6am. When I got there, there were people already there. As the morning began to pass the waiting area kept filling up.

They called me a total of four times. The first time it was to answer a few questions about medical history and blah, the second was to give information such as address and phone numbers, the third was for an x-ray and the fourth was to see the actual dentist. Mind you there were more than 30 people waiting. I said why won't they just call one person at a time and sign them in, get medical history and x-rays and then have the patients wait to be seen by the dentist. People also felt the same way because I would hear some moan and groan. People left to put more quarters in the meter, to eat and some even went to sleep. A few even missed their number.

This made me think about God and how he deals with us. He calls us plenty of times. But we are too occupied with other things or sleeping. Then He has to come back around to get us together again to do what He wants us to do. It takes more than one shot to do someting. It was their process that we had to go through so we have to abide by their rules. So with God, it's His world, so we have to do what He wants us to do.

I tried to write but nothing is coming to mind. Maybe some things shouldn't be on my mind. Like his problem or her problem. It's throwing me all off of track. Instead of worrying aboout my situation, there are a lot more others to worry about. A lot of things I may have to let go but I just don't have the heart to. They always say be like Christ, forgive blah blah blah. But when I try to be, I am told this and that is wrong. I don't want to seem rebellious but how can I follow advice on what I don't understand. The Bible says not to lean on my own understanding but I can't lean on others' understanding of the Bible either. It just seems so wrong which ever way. I don't know.
