blah blah

i'm wondering what i should do.

today at new harvest i was refreshened with the lesson of wrestling with God.

and I haven't wrestled. I've just pushed him away. Because I don't really want to talk to Him about the stuff I want to control. He is supposed to be my pilot, yet I'm treating Him like the co-pilot in all areas of my life.

And I'm fustrated with certain things...hmm...yeah quite a few. But I'm not going to post it on this blog. Cold weather always brings cold times in my life it seems. And it's freezing outside.

Worship. That seems to be the simple answer according to Job. Jenn, I say simple ONLY in the sense that it is simple to say. The actual doing in the midst of it all is the challenge. Ch 1&2 we see the wave of difficulty and disaster Job faced. Then we see what he did. He fell on his face and worshiped God. First he tore his robe and shaved his head but since that was customary then I wouldn't suggest it for now. I think a big message in the rest of Job we will be seeing is God saying, "I created you, I created the universe in its tremendous vastness and detail. I open my mouth and stars are formed. I have everything in the universe in the span of my hand and its all happening at once. I have you there too and all my love is focused on you.
If the next time I see you and you are shaved at least I won't have to ask why. Just an FYI, if your Wednesdays free up we are just starting in Job and will be there for the next several weeks.
