Different people believe different things about Him--that He's just some omnipotent being that created the Universe then went on vacation; that He's a cruel taskmaster; that He doesn't even exist.
I know the One who sent His son to die on the cross for me. He is very real. Very personal. And has the best sense of humor of anyone I know.
Take Monday for example. Since March 19th, I've been on a rigorous physical journey--drastic dietary changes and more exercise to lose weight and get healthy. Every Monday morning, I weigh myself to see how I'm progressing. One week I lost 5 pounds, the other weeks I've been losing at a rate of 3 pounds per week.
This Monday however, I stepped on the scale and there was only one pound lost. One. To say I was cranky is an understatement. I went about my morning chores ranting and raving about how I'd worked so hard all week, ate that boring food, and all I had to show for it was one pound. I was not a happy camper.
When I finally stopped storming around the apartment in my snit, sat down and opened up the day's devotional, the first words staring back at me were:
"Are you impatient?"
Uh. Possibly. 8-)
You might have a tendency to say that was a coincidence, but I know better. The Lord has spoken to me through humor more times than I can count. I have come to depend on it to get me through life. That's made a lot more bearable with this very real, very personal, and yes, very humorous God that I serve.
