Out of the mouth of Lindsay

Dorothy, aka my Mom, took us to SAM's for lunch today. They have a contribution container for Children's Miracle Network where you can put a coin in it and it rolls on all kinds of tracks. I gave Kristinie the Great my last penny so Lindsay asked Dorothy if she had any money, but here is how she asked: "Grandma, do you have any cents?" I think she meant SENSE!! Dorothy and I had a great laugh over that one!!

But then I was pondering Lindsay's question and realized that I had to ask myself if I had any sense? And I talked with the Lord about it and we both agreed that I didn't. I am always glad when I agree with the Lord. Sometimes in the midst of things, I forget that my sense makes no sense while the Lord's sense makes sense. When I subject myself to the Lord's sense, then everything goes the way He wants and I can rest in knowing that I have done what He asked me to do the way He asked me to do it. I Corinthians 14:40 is my favorite verse: "Let all things be done decently and in order." How simple is that. It makes sense, and it is the best way to do things. I thank the Lord for His grace - if it's sufficient for me then it's sufficient for thee!!
