so the neighbors wonder

Thursday May 26th, Romans 5: In alert expectancy such as this, we're never left feeling shortchanged. Quite the contrary—we can't round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit! A life well lived is one where you can say, “Look how God has been with me through the bumps, dips and ditches, I can’t wait to see what is next.”  If you have ever tried to read the Bible you probably know of those boring parts of scripture with the long list of names, most of which you cannot pronounce.  These sections are the writers’ way of saying, “look how God has been with all generations through all the bumps, dips and ditches they have been through, just imagine what God has in store for you, yahoo.”  When you get to these sections in the Bible, you have permission to skip over all those names and say, “look how God has been faithful for all these generations, surely God will be faithful to me also.”  Then close your eyes, hold out your arms in praise, and soak in the love of God and the presence of God poured out upon you.  A good “Hallelujah, Praise the Lord” would be in order about now.  Say it loud so the neighbors wonder what is going on.
