Crock Pots and Contemplation

So, yesterday, I told you how one of our pastors preached on Mary and Martha’s story and how God uses Crock Pots and not microwaves.  

Part of that crock pot mentality requires that we spend more time thinking and looking and waiting for God and less time being too busy.

This morning, even before the usual “morning fog” (in my head, not outside) cleared, this song was playing on my internal iTunes.     Why did God plant it there?   We haven’t sang this song in church for a number of weeks.    I don’t know.

But listen to the words – it is the type of action that God is calling us to be and do……

“From my heart to the heavens, Jesus be the center.   It’s all about you.”

Listen to it.   All of it.   As it washes over you, ask yourself, am I really letting Jesus be the center?

What would this world be like if more of us really truly let Jesus be the center?

What would my life be like if I let Jesus be the center of it all?

What would our churches be like if we spent time every Sunday and every day thinking and talking about what it really means to make Jesus the center?

The center of how we live with our family.

The center of how we react to things on social media.

The center of how we judge who we are going to support in presidential races.

The center of how we treat those who look different and maybe believe differently than we do.

The center of how we wrestle with the need for security along with the pressing needs of millions in Syria and Greece.

From my heart to the heavens, Jesus be the center, because it’s all about you, yes it’s all about you.”
