Doing The Christian Walk With A Funky Strut

Freshly squeezed fruit

on January 21, 2014

I didn’t make any New Year’s resolutions this year.  I did a Weird thing.  Per Craig Groeschel’s book, I set up “One Thing” to focus on for the year.

Since it’s clearly my weakest fruit of the Spirit, the “One Thing” is: SELF-CONTROL.

Naturally I’ve been getting tested 10 times worse than usual.

But after several weeks of less-than-stellar results, I did actually mark a success this evening.

I said “NO” to a purchase and stopped myself from making the trek across town to do it.

Started with figuring out when to get over to Guitar Center to pick up a tuner pedal.  My current tuner only works off the onboard mic and it’s a bit of a pistol grabbing enough quiet space on Sunday mornings to use it.  Did some research, settled on picking up a Korg Pitchblack pedal tuner, should solve the problem.

But for reasons I know not, got a bug in my bum all day today wanting to also throw in a Zoom B3 multi-effects pedal with the purchase.  Been wanting one for some time but they are not. cheap.

Well, let’s just say a battle raged on in my mind for a while…and wisdom finally prevailed after getting a good whoopin’ from my stubborn will.  Picture a prizefighter at the end of the bout standing over his opponent…sweaty, bloody, stooped over…fist in the air and a delirious grin on the face.  Wisdom, for the championship!!

The B3 will wait.  I came home instead of raiding GC.

Seems petty, trivial…but every “no” I tell myself is a step toward Christ-likeness.  This whole year is gonna be all about “NO”.  😛
