Did You Understand What I Said?!



There are those days when you think you hear the one job the boss has for you to do. Did you hear it right? Yep. So, you don’t ask for clarification, you just do what you heard. BUT…you didn’t hear it right!

It’s difficult listening to what someone says to you and making sure you totally understand exactly what was said. Communication is not easy. It’s not just speaking and listening.

That’s why in the Bible, God tells you he loves you in so many ways. He says it. He demonstrates it. He tells you a story of how he does it. And, most importantly, he sent Jesus, just to make sure you fully and completely understood.

Don’t listen to others tell you what they think God is telling you. That’s second-hand information. Check it out for yourself. Find a Bible…or watch it on the History Channel!

For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3


Your Starbucks Order on a Bad Day

Remember that Monday? You sleep through your alarm because you were out partying the night before until 3:00 a.m.? Your head’s in a vice and you’re only vaguely aware of where you are. You have the boss from hell who threatens to fire you for being a minute late! Stumbling to the bathroom, you somehow brush your teeth and shower without drowning. From your closet you grab the first thing your hand comes in contact with. No time to make coffee…BUT…you’ve managed to leave yourself enough time to go through the drive-through at Starbucks.

Remember that Monday? Well, on days like that, here’s what you should order:

I’m going to give you a magical phrase from the Bible that if said facing East will reset the previous 24 hours. Ready? Sorry, just kidding. There’s nothing like that in the Bible. Here’s what the Bible does say about those bad days.

Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying. Romans 12

God will give you hope. Not just any hope but confident, certain, no doubt hope. He’ll help you to learn patience, to make it through those rotten days. Keep on praying. In other words, keep on calling on him. He’s always there. Always there.

Having a lousy day? Hey…you might pray for a short line at the Starbuck drive-through.
