...is when the tunes playing inside my head,
turn out to be the LORD trying to tell me something...

A couple of years ago, I got a bonk on my head that gave me a headache for the rest of the day. Not one of the best days of my life - before it was over, my oldest child had run away. (She came back the next day.)
I grumbled at the LORD about the bonk on my head, complaining that HE had let it happen. And then I heard HIM say to me, that it was a gift.
Over time, I began to understand. The cramps in my feet when I was trying to pray. The kids yelling and bickering. All the little (and big) annoyances of my life. These are in fact gifts, if I look at them from a different perspective. Inconveniences, to stretch me - to show me that in HIS strength, I can endure more than I thought I could.
Praying in the midst of the storm, so to speak.
The LORD is the giver of good gifts - every good and perfect gift comes down from the Father of lights. (James 1:17)
I just have to remember to see things HIS way, and not my own way.
