At this time, my question is rather selfish. I lost my mom in '07 and miss her dearly, but it was a blessing that she was taken (she had a heart attack during surgery) due to several circumstances, IF, she is with our Father now. I know that she loved the Lord, she openly spoke to Him on occasion, but she withdrew from church and socially due to depression and other factors. I know that she leaned on the Lord in hard times, but I don't truly know what her relationship with the Lord was. So, I would ask God if she is with Him in Heaven.
I know that this is a difficult one, and I don't mean to depress anyone, but at this time, that is what I would ask. Having said that, I also have to say that it is more important to witness to our loved ones while we can and know their relationship with the Lord, than it is to get all their affairs sorted out. Their affairs will get sorted out after they pass. The greatest gift we can give anyone is an opportunity to know our Lord.

I have so many questions, but actually, by the time I would be able to sit down with Him face to face and ask Him, I'll have the answers! Such as, what is heaven going to be like? (I know the Bible describes it somewhat, but I want details! LOL!) What will the new heaven and new earth be like? What will the Millenium be like? What will our new bodies look like? I could go on, I have a very inquiring mind! BUT, I can wait because I know it will all be ever so much better than we can even imagine!

What would it take to bring Israel and the Jewish people to the understanding that Yeshua (Jesus) IS the Messiah and the way to salvation?

I think my question would be, "What's next?" That is not meant in a negative way; but rather, what do You have for me to do today? Then, I would ask Him to keep my ears open to His voice, my eyes open to the needs of others, and my words to be seasoned with His love.

My questions would be more selfish.


I want to know what will can be done to get my three who have strayed from the L-rd to come back to loving and serving Him.


I really want to know if my life, my living situation is ever going to get better, and what I must do to get the changes happening.

I have many questions. I don't know which one I would ask first. Maybe, why do we as a people keep huting one another?

To thine ownself be true. All things are possible thru God.

Was that really YOU?

So often I am distracted by the 'strong winds' the 'earthquake' and the 'fire'. My senses seem to overload and drown out his 'still small voice'.

Ah so! I frequently ask God to protect my children and to bring them to a greater understanding of who he is. It's not so much the question as the discussion. It would probably be over a cup of coffee, but I don't drink the stuff! All of my kids do though so maybe he will just have to answer their questions over that cup of coffee!

I understand what you're saying Cindy and maybe the posted question wasn't an appropriate one for discussion. I had envisioned sitting with God, maybe over a French Vanilla coffee (not being insolent here) and having a man-to-man type of talk. With that in mind, I wondered what the most pressing question would be that I would ask.

Would "What do you ask God for throughout the day?" be a better one to generate discussion?

Be well.

I have thought about this one for days and haven't come up with anything really. The thing is, if I have a question for Him I just ask Him. I know He hears me and you know what? He always answers too!

i guess my question would be, do i dissapoint you as much somedays as i dissapoint myself? and another burning one, why??? why suffer the little children, why is the sky blue and the grass green. why some have blessings galore and some none or very few? so many questions so little time. but all will be answered at the throne and i can wait.

Oh, Lou, that is a good one! I was thinking along the same lines, but, I haven't picked the one questions yet. I'm still trying to narrow it down. I'll get back to you on that one. emoticon

After thinking about it today, I believe my question would be:

How do you handle the disappointment you must feel about our behaviors and attitudes?

If you could ask God one question, what would it be?

I'm not sure yet what mine might be, but thought this may be an interesting topic for us to talk about. What are your thoughts?
