this works. This internet thing. Unbelievable. So’s here I am, writing a quick blurb about a movie I just watched, thinkin’ that I’ve got a handle on todays’ events, when, BAM!, I get hit straight upside the head. Can I spout expletives or abbreviations or acronyms or SOMETHING! Arrgh!
So I’m going to be thorough, right? And quote the proper Bible verse to go along with Tell the Truth as I wrote in my last segment. But, see, I can’t remember the exact verse. So, what do I do? I think, heck, this is the Internet age, instead of firing up my very extensive Libronix system, I’ll just Google it. Bummer, dang internet.
Man, let me tell you right now, Jesus works in funny ways for the ol’ Jolly. I could take just about anything and spin it to my American lifestyle and perception. But what the heck do I do with this? Or how about when I clicked on the picture and got this? Nothing prepared me for this. Nothing.
Don’t get me wrong here – Ted needs help. But what in the heck am I supposed to do with true stories like those in the links above? Comprehend them? I think not. Pontificate about them? I think not.
What do you do when something is so far out of your universe that it makes no sense whatsoever? Google a Bible verse? I dunno, but I think not. On the other hand, I’ve no choice but to believe that is exactly what I should do. The only one that comes to mind is Psalm 23 but I must wonder, how does one, in the midst of something this tragic, this painful, say –
1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
