We had a Mexican Chuckle erupting during this morning’s prayer before the service. The chuckle was spontaneous and persistent, and pervaded the prayer that followed.
Andrew had found himself asking God to enable us to be Sunday Sponges.
You now need to look in the mirror and see yourself in a different light.
Sponges (real ones) are crusty, rough, pumice-stone like things when removed from the sea and dried out. You would think they would respond to water in the same way as a piece of concrete, but the edges start to blur, and they seem to take in more water than their volume they are growing to actually occupies. An insatiable hunger for water!
Take them out of the container they are in, and the water streams out.
Squash them, and there’s even more.
So, you now know, if you were there this morning, why you may feel gorged. Don’t try and keep it in. You need to let it leak out. Don’t be afraid of being squashed – this will also bless the squasher with grace you didn’t know was there to bless them with.
Top ups available all week. Home supply via prayer, scripture, fellowship. Fuel up at church via at Nexus (very nourishing) tomorrow, or any other fellowship meeting this week.
And, when you pause to pray, let the Mexican Chuckle continue…
