The Boss called me up today…

…and I mean C.E.O.
So you can imagine my state of being for the most part of the afternoon today. To say the least, I’m glad he’s looking out for me, and my social activity is going to have to drop a couple of notches.
Apparently word reaching him is that I’ve got a drinking problem, and that my conduct is questionable, but that in telling me all this was in his capacity as my buddy and not my Boss, needless to say, he’s cool like that.

till next time,
easy does it 🙂

Brokenness (1)

‘The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit.’ PSALM 51:17

A world that celebrates success doesn’t see value in broken things. But God brings beauty out of brokenness. For a plant to rise from the soil the seed must be broken. For a baby chick to experience larger life the shell must be broken. Even a thoroughbred horse must be broken; it must learn to respond to the tug of the rein and the sound of the master’s voice. Getting the idea? After a humbling encounter with Christ on the Damascus Road, Paul re-evaluated all the religious activity he once boasted about and called it ‘dung’ (Philippians 3:8). And you don’t brag about dung, you’re repulsed by it. Brokenness is the work of God by which He strips us of self-sufficiency so that the character of Christ may shine through us. Now don’t misunderstand; being broken doesn’t necessarily mean experiencing some tragedy. Many people suffer tragedy without drawing closer to God or even acknowledging Him. Indeed, the same sunshine that melts the butter hardens the clay. The issue in brokenness is not so much our circumstances, but our response. What is God trying to teach us? True brokenness is when He strips us of self-sufficiency to the extent that we’ve no strength left to fix ourselves. When God blocks every exit we try to take and we come to see that He alone is our answer, we make a life changing discovery. ‘And what’s that?’ you ask. When God is all you have – God is all you need! Bottom line: God’s power is reserved for those who have given up trying to do it in their own strength or to accomplish it for their own ends!

My problem at the moment is I’m still trying to figure out a way out of this current predicament I’m in…I have thought about leaving the country (call it my ‘Jonah’ moment), or keep a low profile for sometime, half-thinking to myself  that this will blow over…just thinking out loud or is it thinking on virtual paper, go figure.
