[no sloppy living]

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.

  • This is something I can definitely relate to. A lot of my friends (and my wife) tell me that I’m smart and that I know a lot. I insist, though, that it doesn’t mean much, and I didn’t do anything to deserve or earn the intelligence that I have. 

    Finishing strong, though, is also something I have a hard time with. Mainly because I’m a great starter. Also, most things come easily to me, so when I actually have to work to finish something, I don’t want to. I’m a bum. This I know.

    • Most things come easily to me, so when I actually have to work to finish something, I don’t want to. – hah, been there, done that. You’re not alone in that regard.

      Yet… in this case, we better finish the race 🙂

    Being a “know it all” isn’t as important as being a “hear it all.”  One of my main goals is to hear what the Lord is saying to me when I need to know where to go, HOW to go, who to approach.  If I get busy working at home or doing what I want to when I want to, I can miss His “call”.  For me, that’s just about the worse that happens.  We live in intense and serious times… and I believe it is going to get worse … so we need to pay attention to His directions to us.  Can’t know all the Word all the time, but CAN recognize the Voice of my Lord and keep moving forward in the race.

    Wisdom is definitely blooming in your spirit.

    • Being a “know it all” isn’t as important as being a “hear it all.” – I love this. 

      Thanks, Joanne!

    Zee, as usual you raise a lot of points. There is a dfference between scientific knowledge and spiritual knowledge. I would see them both as valid enterprises but differing in method and other ways. A spiritual path is not theoretical; it requires our full participation on every level. This will lead to knowledge, but not merely theoretical knowledge. It will be lived experience.

    • Lived experience – YES! – we cannot simply know this kind of stuff theoretically. It will be utterly useless that way.

      Thanks, Mary. 

      Btw, heard that there are floods in Australia – you OK?

      • Mary

        Yes Australia has had terrible floods, but not in Sydney.

        • Good to know that you’re okay 🙂 Keeping Australia in my prayers.

            Thanks Zee, keep praying because there are still floods and lots of damage. Overnight there has been flooding in some parts of western Sydney.

            I have heard that Ukraine has been badly affected by the cold weather.
