i remember those words most clearly from a keith green song. i know they're from the bible but i remember the keith green lyrics better.
i'm having a little bit of a problem with obedience right now. obedience to patience, obedience to Another's will, obedience to all sorts of things. this lenten season is going to be completely void if i don't buckle down.
but you know what? i find it really strange that i'm feeling this pressure to 'buckle down' when there's really not that much flying out of control! i dumped a pseudo-boyfriend, i'm a total workaholic, i'm frugal and prudent and such. what's making me think that there's more to latch down? what's left to latch?
anyway, below is a post on obedience from Hugo, the b'sphere's resident manly feminist with a tattoo.
