So Much More Than a Book

Sometimes I read something in the Bible that moves me so much I can’t contain it. Like right now when I’m sitting at a table at Starbucks and I can’t make my eyes stop watering, can’t stop my face from grimacing, can’t stop laughing at the glory and awesomeness of God! I’m sure if anybody notices me they’ll think I’m manic.

The next thing I pray is “GOD! PLEASE LET ME TEACH THIS AMAZING THING FAITHFULLY! PLEASE HELP ME TO EXPLAIN THIS TO OTHERS WITH THE POWER YOU JUST EXPLAINED THIS TO ME!”

And then inside there is a still, small voice that says, “No Dan, sometimes they are just for you.” and then I cry more.
