FEELING COCKY!

posted in: Uncategorized | 1

You know how some days things just seem to go perfectly.  The sun and birds are making music.  There is a cool breeze in the afternoon – in May – in Phoenix!   You are filled with energy and when asked a question you pop off exactly the right answer with wisdom and deep thought.  Well…last weekend was like that for me.  Saturday, Sunday and even into Monday.  I could do no wrong.  In prayer I spoke intelligently and with emotion.  In emails I was rockin’ it.  I even finished three talks for a retreat I’m speaking at in record time…and they are good, too!

Then I read Job 38 & 39 as part of my yearly Bible reading plan.  Turns out I didn’t hang the stars and I don’t know where the lightning is stored.  I cannot make water turn to ice without a lot of help from the freezer.  I cannot cause grass to cover the barren fields.  Nor can I tame the lion and make him eat his veggies.  Basically I’m helpless without the infilling of God’s grace.

So today, Lord, as I tackle whatever lies ahead of me, please keep my cocky spirit humble before You.  It’s all about you, Lord…it’s totally All About You!
