Hi. Let me introduce myself to you: I'm God's monkey.

Do you ever wonder why one ape was chose to sit in a zoo and another was chosen to sit in a spaceship? One is launched into orbit and the other flings poo at zoo goers! Well, we may never know who nor how these decisions come about, but I'm sure one ape is not that different from the next.

Sometimes I see it! I'm His monkey. He picked me for something and I'm finding that out each day ... same with you too. He could launch one of us in orbit and set the other one in a different situation. We are along for the ride either way. He has to pull the levers and punch the buttons!

There is no use for even an astronaut to brag, because it they have sent rats to space, it is Mission Control that does all the work. Likewise, I can't take credit for anything He does in Me that reflects His glory, grace, and goodness. He gets the glory. I'm just along for the ride, while all the buttons and levers are controlled by Him. He could pick anyone, so there is no use bragging or thinking too highly of myself. After all, I'm just God's monkey .. .and I'm grateful to be put to use for anything He wants.

"""It is not that we are competent in ourselves to count anything as having come from us; on the contrary, our competence is from God. """ ~ Paul (2 Cor 3:5)

OOOO OOOO OO OO OO! ****scratching left flank while patting head*****lol!

Thank you for making me laugh and take myself less seriously on a typical NM spring day of blowing dirt when all the world outside and inside seems far too deadly serious these days. I'm glad to remember that I'm just a monkey too.
