Things I Love Thursday

Thursday, September 23, 2010

This week’s things I love Thursday goes out to Stuff Christians Like. I happily took the task of combing through this amusingly true blog of Christian satire for a project at work. The author of the blog,  Jon Acuff, is a Christian who pokes fun at Christians. And throws in the occasional serious and challenging post, which I equally enjoy and respect.

He discusses relevant and vital topics such as… the side hug, deep v-neck syndrome, and Katy Perry. Oh and the big one, is God a Mac or a PC?

Okay but here’s one of the aforementioned serious posts, something that struck me and  made me think about my own take on life. It’s about not only giving Jesus the wheel, but the gas pedal too. And having the patience when doing so.

“His hands might be firmly placed on the steering wheel, but I’m over in the passenger seat stretching my left leg and trying to press down on the gas pedal. Dang, Jesus drives slow sometimes! And it’s up to me to press his be-sandaled foot down hard on the gas so we can get this car that represents my life in the fast lane.”

So, why does God not give us everything at once, and rather, stretch our patience?

“Good things given too quickly tend to turn into poison if we’re not careful.” And God loves us too much to let that happen.

So, we savor the simple things, and when the amazing things come along, we’re that much more grateful.

Happy Thursday…do yourself a favor and visit the site, or, like I’m going to do, buy the book.
