Funny Friday Quote: Prayed for a parking
An overweight gentleman decided it was time to shed some excess pounds. He took his new diet seriously, even changing his driving route to avoid his favorite bakery. One morning, however, he arrived at work carrying a gigantic coffee cake. Everyone scolded him, but he had an explanation.
“This is a very special coffee cake,” he said. “There was a detour so I had to drive by the bakery this morning. I felt it was no accident, so I prayed, ‘Lord, if you want me to enjoy a delicious coffee cake with my coworkers, open up a parking place in front of the bakery.'”
“Sure enough,” he said, “the 8th time around the block, there it was!” [Kraus, Jim. Bloopers, Blunders, Quips, Jokes, & Quotes. Carol Stream: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. 2005. pg. 28.]
Bible verse of the day: Psalm 149:6 (NIV)
“Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD.”
Dear Heavenly Father,
Today is the day that You have made and I will rejoice and be glad in it. I offer up to You my praises this morning and I sing a new song. Father may the joyful noise that I make bring glory and honor to Your name. Fill me today with Your Spirit and may the decisions that I make be with a Kingdom mindset. I love You Father, and I thank You for a beautiful day!
In Jesus Name I pray,
