Not because I didn’t brush my hair.
Not because I’m wearing a white blazer
in the middle of October.
Not even because I’m wearing feathers
in spite of my age!
Clearly, now. I ain’t skeered to just put myself all out there and such. Clearly, right?
From the start of this whole blogging excursion, I’ve had a master plan, a big picture in mind. I’ve wanted to emphasize good stewardship, ministry, gratitude - to place more value on values than on attire.
My Master plan has been to do this for Him.
If I mean what I say, then I have to listen when He speaks.
Sometimes His speaking is in the form of a question. "How many pairs of black shoes do you need?"
Just for instance.
One of the voices in my head keeps saying, "You will not laugh. You will not cry. I will teach you." Uh, I don't know, man. Some of the other voices are laughing. And I definitely feel like crying. Because change is hard. And it can be scary.
The scariest of all - at least for me - is to give up the reigns.
What makes it worthwhile, however, is that while the process may be painful at times, in the end I'm left with joy, peace, and gratitude.
I may not be the American Dream Blogger, but that's okay. This is really about me and God. And after that, of course, I have all those voices in my head to keep me company!
Think I’m crazy? I suggest you hold out a bit before making that decision. After all, I haven't even worn the potty collar yet!
