Shooting from the Hip

I think it is really funny when someone can shoot off one liners like it is their job to be funny. Last Wednesday we went to Miller's Run Methodist Church (not so Methodist because I've always heard they are quiet but these people shout). Mike Blanton and Evidence was singing and Mike Blanton preached.

Anyways Mike and his wife and the other lady had sung a few songs. Then Mike talked about growing up in church and not having music he said it wasn't because they didn't like it they just couldn't afford to buy guitars and other instruments. Well a lady at the church said something about old regular baptists. Well like it was nothing Mike said, "I'm an old regular Baptist. I'm a Baptist and I attend church regularly." I had to laugh.

After church I told Mike that it was my first time hearing him live (or in person). He said, "do you like me better alive or dead?" LOL!

Put Your Name There

My friend Kenny has told before that some times when he reads the Bible he will put his name in verses. So the other night I was reading Romans 10:13...

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Something within me which I believe had to be the Holy Spirit because I don't think the devil would tell you to do something that would bless you so much. Anyways said to me to replace whosoever with your name. So I did and I read it this way...

For Starla shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

I know it doesn't read well but it was still a blessing. To think that I'm a nobody but because God loves me I'm a some body. And all over the world there are many people who maybe feel they are nobodies or others consider them nobodies but in God's eyes they are someone to Him.
