so as i’m watching HGTV the other night with andy, we got stuck on a show called ‘curb appeal:the block’…. so i have to tell yall this. they assess the house that they want to facelift and start looking for neighbors to help. they come to this one couple and the man ask them if the could help them by painting their front porch ceiling, the man replies by saying, ‘well, hook it uuuuuuuuuup.’
yes, that’s a serious event that happened. we just about fell out of our chairs laughing at the fact that the man had no desire to change anything about himself- even for television.
of course, i’m gonna make something ‘bible-esque’ out of this: it was such a great reminder that God wants us to be ourselves- not our old selves that were lost and too ashamed to call His name, but our NEW selves…. the self that has to WANT to never be ashamed about who we are in Christ! I loved the unintentional encouragement that man gave me the other night as we laughed for a good 20minutes. it’s reminded me today to strive to be all He wants for me!
