Dudes and Dudets, (i love the fact that i can start this thing with THAT intro)
let me warn you first of all: being a weird nerd-man allows me the opportunity to let my nerd-motions (nerd emotions… try to keep up here) to completely take control and let me start rapping off ner-deas (nerd ideas). Another warning: I may seem spirited in jargon, and over-excessive in adjectives, partially because these are topics i’m dealing with right now, and partially because i’m all hopped up on coffee and just played ridiculous amounts of Call of Duty.
Spiritual GIFTS!!!! BAM!!!!
just letting you know… all the duplicate exclamation marks are most likely caused from the visual an nurological stimuli brought on by caffeine and running amuck with dual machine pistols in virtual space. or maybe it’s because i’m typing so extremely bodatiously fast. right? didnt that read like i typed it incredibly fast?!!?! superfast.
right: where was I? spiritual gifts. SPIRITUAL GIFTS!!! It kinda makes sense to do the things that we are good at. example: if you really werent good at jumping over 70 school busses with a motorcycle and cape, you may want to leave these thing to the professionals… like Evel Knievel. who ironically has so much metal in his skeletal system, that he could probably go head to head with Wolverine… but not win… that is just ridiculous. But i digresssssssss (whoah… coffee jitters)
The point is Evel was good at what he did, and with his unique skill, was able to impact the world by fearlessly pushing the envelope (when he wasnt in the hospital, undergoing reconstructive surgery).
We all have a little bit of Evel (Knivel… hahaha no pun intended, but i wonder if the editors are going to make me take that out) in us; in the sense that God has given us each skills that He is just waiting for us to use for Him. He is just waiting for us to push that envelope on what we think is possible, and revel in awe when we see what God is capable of when we use the “world defying” gifts he has given us.
Keep in mind. these skills don’t have to be “can levitate on command” (but if this IS your gift, let me know… because i have some SWEET practical jokes in mind that we could play… after i get another cup of coffee). Example: Mine is drinking too much coffee and then writing borderline cohesive blog posts.
ok: now to bring it back home and wrap this up (because, A) i’m terrible at ending posts, and 2) i’m starting to crash after all the sugar/coffee, and D) I should stop before i start quoting “Home Alone”)…
Ok, i don’t have time for sissy cliche taglines like “live up to your potential” and goober sayings like that… but… seriously: get on it. How big of a shame would it have been if Evel Knievel never took the training wheels off? i’ll tell you: a MEGA big shame (hmmm: may need a better adjective for that one. how about “SUPER”? no, no… ehh: whatever… i’ll let he editors deal with it).
God needs Evel Knievel-ing studly studs (stud-etes included) to step up and go push that envelope. I mean: I can think of at least ONE start up church that God could use your schoolbus jumping skills to help. i’m not saying that you have to help Awakening, because you may end up killing yourself if you end up being the poor soul who has to edit my posts. but i AM saying that you should find out what you are good at and DO it.
and i’m also ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss sssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss (this is where Will passed out on his keyboard… he shouldave said “no” to that 5th cup….)
Editorial Note: That was the end of the blog post. Yes… REALLY…. that just happened
