Okay, so the Stuff bug is still lingering around. I did give in and buy Brandon Heath's newest album, Leaving Eden
I was trying to listen to "Your Love" on YouTube yesterday and got sick of the song pausing in the midst of the really good parts, which is basically all of them. It was putting a damper on my praise moves. So I rocked out to that yesterday while I tried to clean up my bedroom, which has been a disaster zone since about Thanksgiving.
This morning, I was praying and asking God what I should do with some birthday money that I have and there I was asking, begging for direction and it hit me, I should be asking God what God wants to talk about, not for direction on what I want to do, though I would say that it felt good to ask God what I should be doing with my time and effort, when it was put in my face how selfish I was being, it was quite sobering. Makes me wonder how many times I've asked for direction and felt righteous doing it, without ever giving a thought to what God might really want to talk about with me. The funny thing was that I got the impression that God just wanted to hang out, no real agenda, just be together.
He was also kind enough to point me in the right direction for getting rid of that nasty stuff bug that's been bothering me to.
