When I Don’t Even Know What I Need

Vague

Ephesians 5:17
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

17 Therefore do not be vague and thoughtless and foolish, but understanding and firmly grasping what the will of the Lord is.


Fast and Vague

I pulled up to the fast food window
And waited my turn to speak
But what I heard was so very vague
It sounded much like Greek

It was kind of muffled
Like someone locked inside a can
Or maybe like their mouth
Was full of rocks and sand

It sure was hard to understand
So I simply shouted out what I desired
“I’d like a Biggie burger with Freakie fries”
“And I got a coupon if it’s not expired”

Well, you’d think I’d asked them for the moon
From the commotion that I heard
Two of them were talking now
But I still could not understand a single word

So I decided to tell them once again
As if that would help to clear the air
“I WANT A BIGGIE BURGER WITH SOME FREAKIE FRIES!”
“BUT FORGET THE COUPON…I DON’T CARE!”

I leaned out of the window
So I might hear a little better
When a girl came out the backdoor
With a manager’s badge pinned on her sweater

“Sir,” she said with a great big smile
“Please pull on through to the other side”
“Your order’s waiting there for you”
And with that she turned and went back inside

Well, I pulled around to the pickup window
And the whole crew was waiting with a grin
They giggled as they handed me the sack
And said, “Please won’t you come again!”

And they wouldn’t take a single dime
Though I offered once or twice
They kept saying something about
The fun they had “Would more than suffice”

So I took my burger back home with me
And popped a Freakie Fry
When all of a sudden I realized
It was a drink I did not buy

So I’m on the way back to try again
I hope a “Big Gulp” they can provide
But I won’t be speaking to that crazy machine
Cause from now on I’ll go inside


Father,

Help us communicate Your word and Your will. May we be blessed with the patience necessary to be a blessing to everyone we encounter. Thank You, Lord for supplying our every need, even when we can’t tell you what they are.
