"I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?" -- Isaiah 43:19

When God Hits Us Upside the Head

I can always remember all of the Christmas movies that come on TV; from Santa Claus, Rudolf, Frosty, to Scrooge. But the most of all them was Mr. Scrooge and all the Christmas Çaroles. The story is timeless with the grumpy wealthy old man and the world that he is changing around him. And the different ghosts that change his outlook on life.
We all have the signals and signs that tell us what we need to do and how we need to do them. But like Scrooge, it takes us being hit up side the head a few times with a bunch of different signals (or in his case ghosts) for us to realize we need to follow.
