Grab Bag: Serious & Silly Stuff

This morning I wore a sweater that was clean ... but since the last time I wore it was to dinner at a friend's house, it smelled like dinner. And I don't really want to smell like dinner at church. So - I'm a genius right - I put on the sweater and then hastily slipped into the laundry room, grabbed the Febreze, sprayed a cloud into the air and then walked through it. Voila. I'm a little embarrassed to admit it actually.. but the sweater wasn't dirty! Just aromatic :-p. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- On the serious note -- Singing songs that ask God to let His Spirit rain on us, for His Spirit to move, etc., often scare me. I've always pictured God moving my heart in a direction that I'm scared silly to follow in. This morning it occurred to me that when His Spirit comes, it's sufficient. Not that there is no quiet waiting on God for preparation and direction, but that's the point: it's all in God. He shows us what to do, and He is our ability to do it. In correction, He is the source for a change of my heart. In stepping out, He is the strength and courage. He is all. Oh, isn't He good to show us these things?!
