Have I got a sign for you…

Have you ever hoped for a sign to help you know what to do or what direction to go in?  I think we’ve all hoped for that at one time or another.  Life is confusing.  The problem is the signs are often confusing too.

In a perfect world, we want a sign to help us know whether a choice is good or whether it’s bad.

Or a sign that tells us simply “yes” or “no”.

Or, better yet, a sign that lets us know if it’s a good sign or a bad sign.

But, we don’t live in a perfect world so we rarely get a perfect sign.  In fact, we’re far more apt to get a sign that’s too confusing to figure out.Or a sign we’re not quite sure how to interpret.

Or a sign that strikes us funny.

Or a sign that’s so blatantly ridiculous, we actually spend time considering whether it holds a hidden message for us.

I think signs can be interesting, confusing, annoying, misleading, humorous, and sometimes even helpful but that we should always consider them through the filter of common sense, and preferably prayer.

I also think that, more often than not, we interpret signs correctly the first time around, but then we needlessly complicate things by second guessing ourselves or, worse yet, we look for a new sign because the sign we got wasn’t the sign we wanted.

Now, if only all signs were as obvious as these.  On that note, I’m signing out.
