Just My Take

There are times when we rummage through our vocabulary bags trying to find the right words to express how we’re feeling. We’re not always victorious though. Sometimes the only way we can describe those emotions, is to compare them with something familiar that everyone around us can relate to. Job 32:17 says, “I also will answer with my share; I also will declare my opinion.” This too is my sentiment. Here are some of those moments… from my perspective.

* God’s love is like a warm hug on a cold night—it satisfies and reassures.

* Being betrayed by a friend is like having the ending of a bad novel you’re reading being revealed—you’re mad at first, but then thankful you didn’t have to waste your time reading the entire book.

* Acing a difficult test is like jumping off a diving board—it makes you feel invincible, and you realize that flying isn’t only for superheroes.

* Being in a bad relationship is like eating ice-cream—it’s sweet in the beginning, but then it gets messy later.

* Reading your Bible is like exercising and eating right—it makes you strong, healthy, and while extending your life expectancy. (Life after death in Christ)

* Failing a driving test is like getting spooked by a scary movie—it makes you paranoid, but the fear also makes you cautious (You start checking under your bed and in your closet!)

* Telling a lie is like a boomerang—when you send it flying, it comes right back to you.

* A good family (home or church) is like a good bra—it gives support while staying close to your heart.

* A pimple is like a jack-in-the-box–you know it’s going to pop-up, but it still gets you every time.

* The latest trend is like the digestive system—it’s not fixed, what comes in one way then goes out the other.
