There’s nothing like belonging to my crew—even when it’s a crazy from being cooped up inside for 3 snow days, topped off with daylight savings day crew. 🤪🤦🏼♀️😂 (And Dave hanging at the end by himself here 🤣) #jensensgotochurch
I was asked to speak in church today (it’s typical for normal members to speak during our worship services, which I love...well, except sometimes when it’s my turn 😉) and in it I told an experience we had this week during the storm. We lost power early on, and for the first time had to use our generator. After we figured out how to start it we quickly realized it wasn’t hooked up to the most effective things—so we had no heat, no power to the fridge, and were left with only a couple light sockets to plug in our phones and a space heater.🤦🏼♀️ After about 24 hours without power I got a notice on my phone that the power should be back on. But nothing happened. After a couple more hours I realized I might need to switch the power from the generator back to the main switch, and sure enough the moment I hit the switch everything came right back on. I realized for the last 2 hours I had sat in a cold, dark home for no good reason.
It hit me that why are we too often like this? Living in a half dark life with little light and warmth, while God stands with all power, ready to give light and direction and warmth to our lives. If only we’d plug in. 💛
Hope you guys had a good Sunday, and I’m happy to be back plugged in here with a live coming later this week! xoxo!
