Are you the bug or the windshield?
Good Sunday Morning,
My apologies, but I had a remarkably busy week at my office. Did I miss anything? Did anything noteworthy happen this week?
After I said that, I went ahead and asked the Google. I said, “Hey Google - what did I miss?” If you want to have an interesting experience, ask your Google or Alexa or your spouse – what did I miss this week. If you do so, you might want to brace yourself.
Now, having done so, I’m reminded of the ‘ol saying that some days you're the windshield and some days you're the bug. You may think that it doesn't always go the way you want it to, but I can tell you that most of the time it does - if you try hard, if you're persistent, and if your goals are worthy, then it probably will go the way you want it to. On the other hand, without the effort, without the appropriateness, and without the worthiness, it usually does not go the way you would want it to go.
So, if you feel this morning more like the bug then the windshield, let me suggest that it is time for you to refocus and start to heal. Healing is an interesting process. Healing is rarely something that you can do on your own. Healing, at least in the most efficient manner, occurs best with the help of others.
If you need healing, reach out for support . . . it’s out there. If you are feeling strong, then be the person that grabs the extended hand, or better yet take the initiative and reach out to the person in need. “Better together” someone said. Personally, I think that someone was on to something.
So here is my thought du jour – if you need healing (for whatever ails you), turning to those with strength is a good idea. If you aren’t sure who has the strength, maybe you’re looking in the wrong direction. For the right direction . . . we can always ask . . . what does the bible say about healing?
Matthew 8:15 – He touched her hand, and the fever left her, and she rose and began to serve him.
Luke 13:12 – When Jesus saw her, he called her over and said to her, “Woman, you are freed from your disability.”
Exodus 15:26 – “If you will diligently listen to the voice of the Lord your God, and do that which is right in his eyes, and give ear to his commandments and keep all his statues, I will put none of the diseases on you that I put on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, your healer.”
Well, what do you know, the Lord our God heals . . . how about that . . . I bet you didn’t see that coming. Well maybe those of you that have spent some time with me these last few Sunday mornings saw it coming. I hope so.
So pour yourself a cup of coffee then sit back, relax, seek healing from God . . . for God is with you, and take solace in knowing that this is the day that the Lord has made; may you rejoice and be glad in it.
