Lent, pt. 33

I had a cool conversation today.

While getting my phone updated, I was chatting with the employee.

cellphones

He and I hit it off.

And then the conversation went deep.

We discussed topics ranging from death to God’s sovereignty to parenting.

But it was also a great time! I felt like God orchestrated the whole thing.

We both agreed that at the end of the day, God is God.

Things happen in life that may confuse us. We don’t always know why.

But God is God.

Another thing we agreed on is that God does not need to be questioned.

He is God and we are not. Trust that fact.

God is God.


So next time you get your phone updated, stand in line at a store, or wait for your coffee, God may have an encounter designed for you.

Maybe, just maybe, it could be just what you (or the other person) needs.

Lent, pt. 25

I played Sagrada tonight with my wife and some friends of ours. It was new to the three of them but we still had a good time playing.

The name, Sagrada, is a word that I didn’t know. The other couple knew some Spanish and they said it meant holy or sacred.

They were correct. It is the Spanish word for ‘sacred’.


That got my mental wheels turning.

Colossians 3:17 says that whatever I do, do it as service to the Lord, giving thanks to Him. That would be my paraphrase you just read.

So tonight, as we ate food and had conversation, we were serving our Lord.

Sure, there was a board game in the middle of all of it but that can be set apart for God too.

I just thought the fact of the name, Sagrada, meaning ‘sacred’ was really cool,

Anything I do, I can do it for God.

During this Lent season, take away this encouragement;

Your life and the things you do can be sacred. They can bring glory to God.

So live…Sagrada!
