God is Hilarious
I don’t know what picture you have in your mind about the personality of God. Is He serious to you? Reserved? Straight-faced? Well I personally believe He loves to laugh His head off as evidenced by the iPod shuffle He ordained for me this morning.
Every morning I walk and on days my girlfriends aren’t there, I take one of my boys’ iPods. Before I begin to listen, I always set it to shuffle and pray the Lord will have just the songs play I need to hear for worship. I guess it is the musical equivalent of flipping your Bible open and pointing to a Scripture and assuming that is the one God meant for you that day. What stinks is when that Scripture turns out being one that prophesies your doom or in the case of the kids’ iPods, when Skillet comes on instead of Hillsong. But I digress.
This morning, I prayed in the usual manner and asked the Lord to ordain my praise. Would you love to know the first song that came on?
‘White and Nerdy’ by Weird Al Yankovick
So, it is official. I am a nerd.
Because God spoke to me through my iPod and said so.
But I’m pretty sure He loves me anyway…..
p.s. Today is the last day for the the Chip Ingram ‘Effective Parenting’ Study GiveAway! Be sure to leave a comment before midnight to be entered for the drawing!
:giggle: That’s funny! :)
That is one of my husband’s favorite songs! Giggle. :)
Explain to me again why you listen to your boys’ IPods????
It’s funny though, ’cause when I was working myself back up to running after my injury, I would run during one song, and walk during the next one. Then after a week of that I’d run two and walk one, etc. until I could run the whole hour without stopping to walk at all….blah, blah, blah. All that to say, I often found myself praying that God would work through that shuffle feature and give me the shorter songs to run with and longer songs for walking!! I used to cringe when “Superstar” came on during a “running phase”. I swear that song is the longest song in the history of pop music!
hey girl – got your message and yes I am soooooooo excited for Deeper Still!!! I can hardly wait… I will email you offline and give you my cell. We just got to meet up – that would be specail to me!!
Love the ordained praise!! my son came in this morning AFTER having his quiet time telling me that he woke up to this cool song on the radio – I like Big Butts!!! Oh i just cringed!!! Lord, help me!!
If possible, I would love this to count as my entry for the Effective Parenting – obviously I need it!! hee hee
have a wonderful day!
hehe…You little nerd :0)
Im sure God loves you just the way you are Lisa
You are an inspiration to me
I LOVE the I AM study you have been hosting for us
That’s okay, God knows I am nerdy, and I’m secure in it. This made me crack up- I finally broke down and got an iPod nano b/c I couldn’t stand not having control over my song choices! :) Have a great day!
That is too funny! I didn’t know those songs were still around.
Well, if God says so…
Funny… I love God’s humour too
We love weird Al at our house. We love all Nerds too!!!
