Jon Acuff from Stuff Christians Like has a saying.

You know when people get all spiritual about something that wasn’t and make you feel like you need to be a better Christian? -Jesus Juked.

Like this:

“I read this really awesome six-part series. It was so good, it only took me two days to finish!”

“Wow, that must have taken a lot of time. What do you think would happen if we devoted that amount of time to our faith?”

-Jesus Juked

I Jesus jukes myself today.

On a couple things.

I’ve been praying all day (not like kneeling at my bed prayer, but popcorn prayers throughout the day) about getting this dog I’m fostering a more permanent situation before I leave for California. I emailed a TON of rescues, so if you wouldn’t mind, please pray something works out šŸ˜‰ If it doesn’t it will be fine, but it would just be better.

I’ve been praying so much about this because it affects me directly, but how often do I widen my scope to the things that need far much more prayer? How often to I seek out the things on God’s heart and mind, instead of just what is on mine?

-Jesus Juke

How much time to do I devote to thinking about what I should and shouldn’t eat? About what I look like and what people are thinking about me? All this time I could be devoting to shifting my focus above and around, to the things that really matter.

-Jesus Juke, but true.

We all get caught up in our daily lives, and God is and wants to be intimately involved in them, but He also wants us to focus on the things on His heart. Its a balance. Sometimes it leans toward one thing, but it should always level out.

Right now, its leaning towards finding the puppy a home, but it will balance back out. šŸ™‚
