I remember a skit that Brian Regan did. In it he said about words just coming out and your brain going "oh no! words are coming out"..... Tonight, I could almost picture this going on inside of me. It's weird when you say something that your mind doesnt have time to think about -- and sometimes it can be a real blessing. Sometimes we convince ourselves that our heart is wrong.... ok, most of the time we do. Maybe this is why Jesus said:
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding -- Proverbs 3:5
I wish that we all could just follow our hearts. I look around me and I see all kinds of people (more here than in most areas) that wouldnt even know what their heart sounded like if it started screaming at them. Its so hard sometimes to ignore logic but most of the time, if we want to follow God, it's exactly what we need to do.
Again, I am clueless. I had a phone conversation that scared me..... but in the end, I felt alot better..... I'm still scared and I'm still clueless.... and I actually think I knew more before I had the conversation.... but being a skier, I pray for the blizzards -- the same things others dread. If I can just take that concept and apply it to my life in general.... If I can only learn to use the bad for something exciting..... If all of us could.... things would just be a lot better. It's not about competing with each other, saying who's better or who is worse, and its not about what problems come our way.... Its about riding it out.... All we need is God.... we need nothing else. Sometimes we dont get what we want because we think we need it.... but when we realize that its not something we need, then God blesses us with just that.
I said it a few weeks ago and I think it's appropriate here:
