Searching for God’s Will
Theme: God’s Will is not always the unfathomable mystery Christians often seem to make it.
Length: 1.5 – 2 minutes
Characters: Searcher, Voice of God
Scene/Props: No particular scene or props are needed although if possible, use a darkened room with a spotlight for effect.
Synopsis: A Searcher in a solitary moment genuinely seeks God’s Will in a prayer that is spoken aloud. God replies, but the Searcher is completely oblivious to His responses.
(The Searcher paces the stage and seems genuinely sincere and yet completely unaware of God’s responses. The Voice of God is from off stage.)
Searcher: I wish I could know God’s will for my life. What am I to do? What am I to become?
God: I’d like to see you become more like me.
Searcher: There are so many questions. Who should I marry? What career path should I follow?
God: If you’ll take up your cross and follow me, everything else will fall into place.
Searcher: Where do I begin to find answers?
God: Begin with the Bible. That’s what it’s for.
Searcher: My quiet time doesn’t seem to be what it ought to be.
God: I’ll say!
Searcher: I don’t feel like I’m getting anything out of it.
God: I don’t feel like you’re putting anything into it.
