Time for some SOAP

holy experience

It's 3:37pm and I haven't showered yet.  I don't feel like it.  I'm having a weepy day and everything around me seems to fit the mood.  The skies are grey, Elli's not feeling 100%, my hair looks terrible (thanks to not showering), the kitchen has taken on a life of it's own, I have 4 "blemishes" and my Fels-Naptha bar (the ultimate stain remover EVER) is missing.  I'm not exactly sure what my deal is...I guess it's just one of those days.  Do you have them?

Earlier in the week I talked about living with your Holy Spirit spectacles.  I think, along with not showering yet,  I forgot to put them on today because all I see is blah, blah, BLAH.   

I guess this is yet another reminder that this walk with God is DAILY.  It doesn't flow simply according to feelings or preferences.  If you want to see what He sees, you've got to look to Him daily.  So, I'm going to grab my life journal and wash my icky mood away with the purity of God's word...and then hopefully get a physical shower too!

S: Scripture-what scripture stands out to you?
O: Observations-what is this scripture about, what is it teaching?
A: Application- how does this scripture apply to my life?  How do I need to respond?
P: Prayer- pray the through the scripture and application
