I sure am glad everything doesn’t work that way. I sure am glad I can exchange the worn out and cracked me for a brand new me with no strings attached. I sure am glad God doesn’t go back on His deal when He finds out you are exchanging something flawed for what He has to offer. I sure am glad when He says the price of exchange has been paid, it REALLY has.
Do you have a shared data plan for the phones in your family? Do you ever go over the limit? Does each person get their fair share or do some people use an excess while others go without?
We have bumped right up against our limit the past two months. This month we have disabled the data on all our phones with over a week to go before our new allotment kicks in. We are going thru withdrawals together because someone didn’t consider the amount of data they were using and that they weren’t the only ones using it. They didn’t overspend their data maliciously, but they failed to consider just how much their fun was going to cost them and others if they spent too fast.
I started thinking about God’s love and wonder how many people think His love is like a limited family data plan. If I don’t use it, someone else will. I better grab all I can before it runs out. Or maybe there are those who don’t take what is rightfully theirs because they don’t want someone around them with a “greater” need to miss out.
Are we talking about the God who loved the world so much that He sent His son to die for us? Are we talking about the God whose thoughts of us outnumber the sand? Are we talking about the God who knows how many hairs we have on our heads? All of our heads? Surely THAT God has an unlimited supply of love for each of us to grab hold of each and every moment of each and every day. Surely that God has enough for you AND me and the rest of the peeps in this world He loves too!
I just wanted something simple to get my wheels churning so I could climb back into the blogging world on some sort of solid footing. I asked for a prompt from my peeps over at Sparky’s Blog Challenge and now my head is about to explode. I was given two questions. What do you want to be the same in 5 years and what do you want to be different in 5 years?
Maybe we will start a little closer to the present moment. In 5 minutes I would like to be lying in bed with my eyes closed and my head resting on my pillow instead of sitting here thinking about blogging. I would still like to be barefoot because socks while sleeping just sounds a little too confining tonight.
This post was brought to you by the good folks over at Sparky’s Blog Challenge…you should check them out! Good bunch of folks! :)
