Sacrifice or oblation you wished not, but ears open to obedience you gave me. Burnt offerings or sin-offerings you sought not; then said I, "Behold I come." "In the written scroll it is prescribed for me, To do your will, O my God, is my delight, and your law is within my heart!" I announced your justice in the vast assembly; I did not restrain my lips, as you, O LORD, know. May all who seek you exult and be glad in you, And may those who love your salvation say ever, "The LORD be glorified." Ps 117:1bc, 2 Mark 16:15 Go out to all the world, and tell the Good News. Praise the LORD, all you nations; glorify him, all you peoples! For steadfast is his kindness toward us, and the fidelity of the LORD endures forever. See Jn 15:16 I chose you from the world, to go and bear fruit that will last, says the Lord.
Anyone who knows me knows that "Friends" is one of my staple shows.
Everyone's got their staple shows, movies, albums, etc.
You know, the things that they love so much that they'll listen to or watch over and over and over and over again. For me, "Friends" tops the TV show list.
One of my favorite episodes is when Joey discovers Chandler's old college girlfriend casts actors for movie roles. He asks Chandler to get him in touch with her and hilarity ensues when Chandler has to take her on a few "dates" first, which doesn't sit well with Monica.
Either way, the plan works when Chandler gets "rejected" by her and she says she wishes she could do something to make him feel better. BAM! The Joey ask happens.
She obliges but is confused how that will ease his bruised ego. He shrugs, yells, "Well, the heart wants what the heart wants!" and hightails it out of there before she's any the wiser.
It got me to thinking; what does the heart really want? I mean, we all have dreams, ambitions, wishes, yearnings, you know, our "heart's desire." The heart is sort of the Employee Engagement Officer of the human, right?
But is what the heart wants always in line with the head thinks? After all, the brain does run operations, no? That makes the brain the Chief Operating Officer. Hmm.
So, what if there's a tie between with the EEO and COO think is best? Good thing for the soul. Because the soul, my friends, not only settles disputes between what the heart and head want, it also soothes both sides after the final call is made.
Think of the soul as your body's Chief Executive Officer. Especially since the architect is all knowing and wise, Capisce? And neither one will steer you wrong. #LetYourConscienceBeYourGuide
