Listen to these two! Help me!
I listen to a podcast, where the host can get a little conspiratorial at times. He claims that Obama, McCain, and Bush are all reading off of the same script provided by the same people that run the shadow government. Well, I don’t buy that, but when you see this, you have to wonder…
Second time today that God has said don’t look at your feet while listening to a sermon.
I agree it sounds quite weird. However, after working my 9 hour shift, I don’t always communicate what I’m thinking in a clear way. Not to mention that I’ve always had a bit of a crazy streak, just ask my sister, my wife, my kids, and former roommates.
Okay, the explanation.
Toward the end of the shift, I was listening to Rob Bell on the Mars Hill Bible Church (Michigan) and he mentioned that there is a rabbinical tradition that says and I’m paraphrasing, you need to keep your head up and see that God has parted the sea for you, or else if you constantly look at your feet you’ll begin to complain that the mud is getting all over your feet.
Then while I was in early service at Gaylord Community Church, Pastor Steve made a remark that you need to keep your head up and not stare at your feet.
I took that as a gentle reminder from God that I need to remember to keep my head up and look to where God is taking me, rather than looking down at my feet, i.e. my current situation and grumble about it.
Actually, now that I thnk about it, I’m supposed to tell that to somebody else, but that’s another story.
So no, I’m not hearing voices in my head.
I had these two college roommates when I was a sophomore at Grand Valley State. When the three of us were running around together, we called ourselves the “Three Amigos.” This was a classic clip that was hilarious to us. I found this on Hulu.com:
This is hilarious….
