I Get So Clumsy

Dear Lord; Happy Tuesday Father!

Well Lord, I had every intention of writing You a completely different post today.  It came to me this morning, I thought about it throughout the day, I researched the Scriptures involved at length, and then…

You shifted gears on me.

It happened while I was driving back from picking up a prescription refill at our veterinarian this afternoon.  I’d elected to take the back way there; giving myself a little added “quiet time” to gather my thoughts and contemplate my post a bit.  There I was, riding along deep in thought, when all of a sudden I got that “pay attention” nudge I’ve come to know.  The song on the radio had just changed, and the lyrics immediately caught my notice…

Wow Lord… I’ve felt like this more than once as of late…

You think I’d have it down by now
Been practicin’ for thirty years
I should have walked a thousand miles
So what am I still doin’ here
Reachin’ out for that same old piece of forbidden fruit
I slip and fall and I knock my halo loose
Somebody tell me what’s a boy supposed to do?

I get so clumsy
I get so foolish
I get so stupid
And then I feel so useless…

Clumsy…  What an apt description of how I feel on my journey to You sometimes Father…

I stumble…

I trip…

I take the wrong “fork in the road”

And yet…

But You’re sayin’ You love me
And You’re still gonna hold me
And that You wanna be near me
‘Cause You’re makin’ me holy
You’re still makin’ me holy, yeah

Yeah.  🙂

Thanks for the reminder today Lord.
