I also was short-sighted as a youngster and could not really see into cars very well, as to who was driving, so I tended to recognize people by what they drove and then confirmed who they were by their number plates. So if the moms are talking about another mom (not in a bad way you understand) at school and I'm trying to identify her, I ask, "What does she drive?" which most times illicits a response of, "a white car!" Not very helpful, but you get my quirk right?!
So Minky's encouragement to her prayer group really got to me and I loved the analogy:
"Hi Tracy. I started a prayer/ inspiration group on whatsapp with my cell group and when I read your status this morning, it was confirmation! I have to share this something that is turning and twirling in my rock spider mind. When I got the polo, I was so proud, I want to wash it and keep it clean. I didn't want to park too close to other cars, etc., etc, its like my baby. But then the thought came to me, my life is like my car and I wrote this and shared it with my Home cell group:
"One's life is like your car, what you put in is what you get out. If you wash and polish it, it will not rust and will always shine, and dirt won't stick to it. If you spot some rust, fix it before your car becomes permanently marked. If you regularly check your oil and water, your pistons will always run smooth, you won't smoke and, you will not overheat, and you won't blow your top. But if you overheat, start smoking and blow your top, eish! Big cost to fix the damage. Check your wheel pressure, that you can drive another mile if you have to and make sure the nuts are fastened, that those wheels can't come off ~ So girls, look after your Car even if it feels like a "Tjorra" (car with personality) some days. Its a free gift, all you have to do is to Fill up with the GOOD quality petrol, oil and water (prayers, positive thinking, gratefulness,happiness laughter, caring...) Pump your wheels and fasten the nuts. Wash it With Jesus shampoo and polish it with His Spirit inside and out, that it can shine. Come on girls, Pump up "da performance". "
Are you encouraged to spend some time on your vehicle? As in you?
I hope you are encouraged to do so.
