Sunday Confession: Pull

Sometimes I feel like there must be a higher power.

I don't know that higher power's name. 

I don't know which religion is really talking about the actual higher power. Maybe they're all referring to the same being and things got lost in translation between peoples and languages. 

What I do know is that sometimes it feels like there is no way that we can't be a part of something bigger.  Sometimes I think that higher power is honestly trying to pull a fast one. Some might call it Murphy's Law, some might call it how it is, but I think we've all have those moments. Its like every time you drop a piece of toast, the peanut butter is the side that lands on the floor. It's the way that when you're having a bad day and things are going so horrifically wrong, and then something happens that's so ridiculous and you just can't do anything else but stop and laugh the ridiculousness of life sometimes.

It's amazing to me, how just when I think I know what it is, how things are going to be, how things are supposed to be, or that I'm in control... Something happens. It's as if someone pulls the strings and says "No, you are not in control. You do not have all the answers. There is more going on than what you see."

I don't know who is pulling the strings, but I hope I'm on their good side. 


  1. I love your take on your prompt Ash! I agree there is always that pull that literally pulls us away from our thinking. I was raised religious so I don't push that on anyone. I've only pulled away from my faith once to have myself pushed back into it. I never stopped believing, I just felt out of control with God's control of my life. I'm not sure if that makes sense but my truth all the same. Great post I'll have my link up in the next hour as I was pulled away from writing it last night by Valentines baking. 😉

  2. That's exactly how I feel about life! Sometimes I feel like they pull the strings for their own amusement! What a great Sunday confession that was, proved to me again, that we think a lot alike!
