May 27, 2014 belly-flop


Hello Fellow Sojourner,
Yesterday was another failed attempt to walk in water. Lately, I seem to be in a belly flop trend – or at least I notice it more than normal. Not that I try to blow-it, it just keeps happening. And, usually, it hits when least expected.
You know, most of Jesus’ lessons were sketchy. The way He taught forces us to think, just as it did the disciples. In teaching His mystical, symbolic, veiled, and implied truths, He often leaves me scratching my head. (Please, someone, ‘AMEN’ that I am not alone here!). Even when He was shooting straight, He left a lot for us to sort out on our own. For instance, how hard can it be to DO His heavy-hitter command…

‘Love the Lord your God with all your
heart, with all your
soul, with all your
mind, and with all your
“The second is: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other command greater than these.” (Mark 12:30, 31 HCSB)

But, how that plays out in everyday hours takes some real thinking.
Learning to think is hard work. It’s a lot easier to just be shown where the lines are and color within them.
So, here’s to trusting God to guide us through the hours as He gives us a new day to try again. I’m praying for you, Chickees. And, could use a few prayers myself.
Wake up.
Think first.
Go to bed.
