it's been 2 years. almost exactly. minus 1 day.
my blog is like produce in my kitchen. i go in spurts where i eat every produce item i buy. nothing goes bad.
and then i over-do it. i buy bulk. i get bountiful baskets. i purchase enough food for a family of 5 when i am a non-family of...1. and before i know it, i have produce everywhere in my kitchen. and i ignore it. but i can't throw it away, because that would just be a waste. instead, i leave stuff sitting on my counter and keep checking it to see if it's molding yet, and THEN i can throw it away. but in the meantime, i just pass by it with no intention of eating it ever, but doing a quick check once in awhile to see if i can justify throwing it away yet.
true story. i have a bowl of 5 oranges that have been sitting on my microwave since Easter, which was a month ago. those stubborn things won't mold. but i don't trust them. so, therefore, ergo, they will sit there until they show signs of rotting. because to throw them away before that point would just be a waste.
ok so it's not exactly like my blog. but all that to say, there are random days i remember my blog and pull it up but have no intention of writing anything. 2 years later, i finally decided to write something.
because tonight something kinda cool happened.
i was on a drive tonight (it's what i do. especially when i'm in a tough season. ...a lot of miles have been put on my car the last couple of years). trying to figure out why i couldn't get out of the slump i had found myself in. this song was next on the playlist in my car, and the driving rhythm of this part of the song caught my attention, and then the words did --
(play the song. Shane & Shane - Psalm 46 [Lord of Hosts]. i tried to queue it up for you at just the right part so you could feel like you were there but i don't think it worked - go to 1:28)
instantly this image of someone fighting/wrestling/trudging thru a mud pit came to mind. maybe because i had just watched a clip last night of Kacy Catanzaro in "Steve Austin's Broken Skull Challenge" ... but that's beside the point.
and i am not even kidding you. as that image is going thru my head, i'm driving down the road and i glance to the right...and there's this big mud pit from all the rain we had yesterday.
He is the Lord of hosts. the Lord of Heaven's Armies. He's the One i want to follow.
