Did you see the World Cup final? Unbelievable! To have an amazing career tainted by such an ugly display....and to lose the match in the bargain....to those of you who did not see...the star player for the French, who is retiring after this game from an incredible career, lost his temper and flagrantly head butted an Italian player getting himself thrown out of the match which the French eventually lost.
Just goes to show that what is inside will come out under pressure....its true for all of us isn't it? I hope I ooze grace and mercy when the heat is on...but I know that sometimes ugly things come out, just when I most want to stay under control, or "be a good witness"....
I don't think the Lord is ever surprised by what comes out of us, becuase He knows our hearts already, but I sure am surprised sometimes...guess He wants me to be aware, yet again, just how dark my heart can be....it keeps me needing to be filled up more and more with Him...so He can be what oozes out of me when the pressure is on.
Did you see Pirates?? spooky, fun and funny(I laughed a lot)...never cared for Johnny Depp til he became a pirate :).......but just when you think the movie is finally going somewhere......its over til next year! I have no spiritual metaphors for this one....only frustration......we have to wait til next May?!?! :)
Ahhh, happy Monday!
