wet pants in church

This morning I was driving to church with my friend, when I decided I wanted to take a picture of this MLK graffiti on a building downtown for tomorrow.  I don’t know why but it seemed important to me.  We were at a red light so I wasn’t doing this while moving.  So, I zoom in to get a good pic of this:


Pretty cool, right?  Well, I thought so until the light turned green immediately and I hit the gas.  As I did, my coffee between my legs spilled almost completely in my lap.  Ahhhh!! It was hot.  It was wet.  I was mad…and embarrassed.  I did not want to go into church like that.  My pants were wet!  People were going to think I peed on myself, which is irrational, but anyway.  This was my thought process.

I realized I had fretted about what to wear to church that morning as I often do.  I was actually going to wear a t-shirt with a cardigan but I thought it wasn’t “nice” enough, like I wasn’t giving enough reverence to God or something, so I wore a sweater instead.

I was being silly.  I went inside and I praised Him.  I had to get over myself and laugh about it.  God doesn’t care about what I’m wearing when I worship.

Interestingly enough, the sermon was about making ourselves weak so that we may reveal our brokenness  and others will grow to know Him.  Oh, how I was blessed by today’s sermon and worship.  Y’all know I love me some worshipping!

I am so glad I didn’t go home because of the wet pants.  I would have missed this:

“We love You, Lord.  We worship You.  You alone are God.  You alone are good.” and seeing hands raised in praise as I, too, was overcome with joy of Our Father.
