Mouthing the Words

Been reading about this Ashlee Simpson or what ever getting caught lip syncing on Saturday Night Live. And how it has lite up the phone boards so to speak on the old internet.

This gets me thinking to my self what the heck is going on in this Country. We are in a war for our very way of life for our very beliefs. We are at a critical juncture of that war we will be voting in about a week on which way we want our Country to go and people are more interested in some silly little kid Mouthing Words on a silly little TV show. Come on it is not even real like Star Trek is (that is an old private joke).

More thinking on my part, we are a nation that is just mouthing the words we don't care about any thing but silly stupid little fluff. We act big we get up on stage and say what we have heard other people say. We are in effect lip syncing our way through our lives and maybe that is why we are so interested in seeing some one getting caught we don't want to give away our own act.

Remember in the end we stand before God at which time we will stop mouthing the words and confess what we really did in our life. Will our lives have counted for any thing or will we have just immersed our selves in whether or not some teenager was using her real voice or memmorex.

How would Jesus Vote.

The Key to Job

Think about Job, how he spends nearly the entire book complaining about what had happened. Seeking counsel and comfort from his friends. And he had the idea that if he could just present his case to God, God would see the validity of his claims. Now remember Job was probably the man closest to God on the earth at this time.. He understood that he would see God even after he died. He wished for an advocated to plead his case before God. So close to God that God remarks about it..

However when God confronts Job it is so much more than Job had ever guessed. All Job can say is "I am unworthy-how can I reply to you? I put my hand over my mouth. I spoke once, but I have no answer- twice, but I will say no more." I just think it is most truthful moment in human history. That when confronted with God in truth all our complaints all our wishes all our arguments about how things should have been, just become nothing, in the face of who God is.. Pretty cool and reassuring that even in spite of this, He loves us so much that He sent his Son to redeem us..
