“CRAZ-Z-Z-z-z-z-IER” than usual!!! Aaahhhhhh!!! “YOU”…???…???…???…are NOT gonna believe “THIS”!!! Now, “THIS” describes “ME”…???…???…???…PERFECTLY!!! STRAP YOURSELVES IN, folks!!! Its time for ANOTHER trip to “JILL’S WORLD”!!! WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!
So, it is currently 8:34 pm, Saturday, 09/03/2016. Now, stick with me, okay? “THIS” story is “DIFFICULT” to follow. I THINK. “MAYBE.” (My husband sure didn’t “GET IT” the way I “GOT IT”!!!) :/ Anyways, the 2 blog posts written earlier today, BOTH, correlated with the message delivered in tonight’s sermon at church by Pastor Walter West. BAM!!!
First, I randomly spoke about the recent hurricane to strike FL’s West Coast in post #1 this morning, titled “HELPING”…. Pastor Walter also mentioned that same hurricane prior to beginning his sermon, stating that this particular hurricane also just happened to coincide with his pre-planned sermon to preach about how, “…the flood is coming”. Hhhmmm…coincidence???…???…???…or could it be something else??? STICK WITH ME, folks!!!
Then came post #2, “DON’T WORRY…”. Now, “THIS” seemed a bit strange, EVEN to “ME,” but “I,” for “SOME” reason, felt very, Very, VERY compelled to finish AND publish that post… BEFORE leaving the house for church!!! Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…
So, Church begins at 6:00 pm on Saturday evenings. Chris and I left our house at 6:10 pm. ALREADY “LATE”!!! OUCH!!! BUT…I “H-A-D” to finish that post. AND… publish it before we left the house. I even commented to Chris that tonight’s sermon message MUST have something to do with my “CRAZY” and unusual obsession with completing and publishing that post BEFORE church. Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…
In that post, “DON’T WORRY…”, I AGAIN discussed my tendency to hurry, Hurry, HURRY-UP and physically do, Do, DO things to impact situations. AND…I even blogged about my need to STOP!!! And PRAY!!! “BE STILL, JILL”. HA!!! I JUST published that blog post, SECONDS, before racing out the door, LATE, for church!!! :/
Pastor Walter, HOWEVER, reported that “DOING”…???…???…???…is an essential part of being a Christian. BUILDING our relationship with God by “DOING”…according to His will. “PACKING THE PEWS”…is NOT enough, folks!!! We need to…“HEAR [the word] & DO [accordingly…as the Word speaks to us]“!!! BAM!!! “HEAR & DO!!!” Pastor Walter said so!!! DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!! I felt certain he was speaking DIRECTLY to me!!!
IN FACT…I leaned over at that very moment and quietly reported to my husband how both of today’s blog posts at numberoneteam.net were linked to this ONE sermon tonight!!! :/ Chris did NOT miss-a-beat, folks, as he whispered these words RIGHT BACK AT ME…with a SMIRK on his FACE: “I BET HE READ YOUR BLOG!!!” :/ I was suddenly reminded (by Chris) that I have made similar statements, jokingly, over, And Over, AND OVER…again, And Again, AND AGAIN!!! NUMEROUS times in the past three (3) years!!! “OUCH!!! :/ :/
My competitive “SELF” later kicked in as I proudly stated that BOTH Pastor Walter and my“SELF” get our “MATERIAL” from the same source!!! GOD. THE WORD. THE BIBLE!!! CHA-CHING!!! 😉 Now…“TAKE THAT ONE TO THE BANK,” Christopher Bartlett Allen!!! AND DOUBLE CHA-CHING, CHA-CHING!!! 😉 😉
What a Good, Good evening at church… as I serenade my“SELF” with Chris Tomlin’s “Good, Good Father”. Inside my-own-“SELF’s” mind, “JILL’S WORLD”!!! And sounding pretty good too!!! WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! Have a blessed night, folks.
GO TEAM!!! WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!
P.H.P., folks. People Helping People.
Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today…“EVERY” day!!!
ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!! AMEN.
