itches

do you ever have an itch that you just can’t quite scratch? Something that worries the top of your brain unresolved and just won’t go away? Something that just hangs in the background casting an ever so slight pall on whatever else is going on because there is no relief?

that is the way I feel a good bit of the time. When I read Elihu’s words in Job 32:17-22, I completely understand what he meant.

17 I also will answer with my share;
I also will declare my opinion.
18 For I am full of words;
the spirit within me constrains me.
19 Behold, my belly is like wine that has no vent;
like new wineskins ready to burst.
20 I must speak, that I may find relief;
I must open my lips and answer.
21 I will not show partiality to any man
or use flattery toward any person.
22 For I do not know how to flatter,
else my Maker would soon take me away.

then I run across something like the message Paul Washer gives in the video below, and I can say, “ahhh…..that is what I was trying to say. what a relief!”

He says, “the church in America today looks like a Six Flags Over Jesus.” and that isn’t even the best part. Listen to what Paul says. “we spend five minutes counseling someone about salvation and then spend 50 years trying to disciple a goat into a sheep.”

I linked to it on Timmy Brister’s blog before here.
