Zee Gimon

I am Zee. I call myself the Observer because that's what I find myself doing most of the time - observe life and people around me. My blog is a Pensieve, similar to that of Dumbledore, used to keep the thoughts and random ideas that visit my brain.

  • Agree 100% Zee. I try real hard when I preach to not just use christian cliches or words that only Christians would know and understand (and even that is suspect). I too tire of hearing someone repeat "lord" or "God" or "heavenly Father" or something like it over and over as though He does not know His own name. It is so important to"hear" what we are saying.

    • it would be cool to have an opportunity to hear you preach… d'you by chance have podcasts or something? 🙂

      that's one of the things i like about my pastor's preaching (as opposed to mom's) – he uses simple language (mom is more into technical issues – great also, but sometimes a bit TMI :D)

      It is so important to"hear" what we are saying. – so true!

  • You can get them from ovcf.org. Thanks for asking.

    • cool! thanks, i'll definitely check 'em out! 🙂

  • I'm reminded of my daughter… At times, she will go into repetition mode: Dad, dad, dad, I want ask you a question…Dad,dad, dad. Granted, her reason is my lack of attention in those moments. It can still get to be an irritant.

    God is paying attention to us. He knows our very being. He doesn't need us to beg for his attention. He is eagerly awaiting our attention to Him.

    Matthew 6:7-13, The Message "The world is full of so-called prayer warriors who are prayer-ignorant. They're full of formulas and programs and advice, peddling techniques for getting what you want from God. Don't fall for that nonsense. This is your Father you are dealing with, and he knows better than you what you need. With a God like this loving you, you can pray very simply."

    • i can vividly imagine that scene with your daughter 🙂

      I was listening to that passage in Matthew just this morning! 🙂 (got the audio NT set on random in my iPod…)… i love how the Message infuses the meaning into the familiar passages and makes us take a second (or third / fourth / umpteenth) look at those…

      thanks for stopping by, Dusty.
