I’ve been absent.
Well, actually I’ve been here.
I just haven’t felt like posting stuff whilst I deal with JUNK in my life.
Yes folks, it’s true. I got junk.
In my trunk?
Only sometimes it slips out.
And then it makes a mess and exposes me for the fraud that I am.
I’m not really a fraud.
I am quite likely one of the most genuine persons I know.
I am who I am.
I am who God made me.
Only sometimes I forget.
I have a very wise friend who recenly shared with me a great analogy:
You see we all have this bottle inside of us where we keep our bad stuff. Some peoples bottles are bigger than others. Anyway, we take all our junk and stuff it in that bottle and then we stick the cork in it. Then we have more bad junk and so we stuff the bottle again and again. Then pretty soon the bottle is full and we just can’t get the cork in quick enough after we stuff junk in there and some of the junk comes spilling out.
A couple of weeks ago my bottle was so full that the cork didn’t even fit anymore.
Then it tipped over.
It made a mess.
That’s okay because my God is an amazing God and he deals with my messes much better than I do.
2 Corinthians 1:3-5
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For just as the sufferings of Christ are ours in abundance so also our comfort is abundant through Christ
