Showering vs. Spritzing

Ever heard of dry shampoo? A friend of mine told me about it and I actually laughed out loud. It just sounded weird. Supposedly it is suppose to create a clean, washed look when you don't have time to actually wash your hair. I found it in the store the other day, so I bought it just to see what the hype is all about. It works ok, for a quick fix, but doesn't compare to when you wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner with water. In our busy life, sometimes it is easier to do a "quick fix" with God. We try to take short cuts with our quiet time or bible studies, by doing a little "spritzing" when we really should be taken the time to shower ourselves with his word and love. I know that I always feel better when I have totally emerged myself in the word and focused on Him. The days that I find myself in a rush and doing a "spritzing"; do not turn out as well. God needs us to give Him our total attention and focus on Him. We need to start showering ourselves with The Word and God, instead of "spritzing" ourselves. I promise your days will be a whole lot better and a whole lot brighter.

16 Rejoice evermore. 17 Pray without ceasing. 18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Love In Christ,


Just in case you wanted to see what dry
Shampoo looks like. :)

Guest Post

This guest post comes from Dr. Gene Wilkes, who is a pastor at Legacy Church in Plano, Tx. This is a post from his blog

Eat This Book

The prophet Ezekiel recorded these words from God: “Son of man, eat this scroll I am giving you and fill your stomach with it.” So I ate it, and it tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth." (Ezekiel. 3:3)

At the end of the Church canon in the Revelation, the voice in heaven called to John, and said, “Take [the little scroll] and eat it. It will turn your stomach sour, but ‘in your mouth it will be as sweet as honey.’ ” (Rev. 10:9)

It Is odd to me that eating the words instructed by God taste sweet to both servants of God but when John had digested his scroll it turned his stomach sour.

The difference?

I'm not sure but it may be that Ezekiel's scroll contained a word of encouragement from God and John was about to measure the people and find them wanting in the things of God.

The word of God is that way sometimes. It always tastes good going down but when you begin to digest it you find yourself with spiritual nausea because the word has begun to eat at the core of your being.

We have begun to read The Gospel of Luke as a church. Join us at for daily readings via email and to join a small group to be there for you when you get a sour stomach.
