Do you speak Christianese?
by Tim Stewart
Brethren and sistren, how is your daily walk? How are your quiet times and devos? Remember that seven days without prayer makes one weak! For me, I’ve just been counting it all joy. I’m too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed. I hope you don’t think I’m superspiritual or that I’ve arrived. After all, I’m not perfect, just forgiven. Some people have accused me of being so heavenly-minded that I am no earthly good, but have patience with me please—God’s not finished with me yet!
Why just this morning I was sending God knee-mail and getting into the Word. I was reading the red letters and making sure that the gold was in my heart and not just on the gilt edges of my Bible. I gleaned some pearls and re-read my life verse.

I’ve been feeding on the Word a lot lately because I’m looking for a helpmate to help me fill my quiver. I don’t believe in missionary dating, so I’m putting out fleeces left and right, hoping God will point me toward my helpmate.
In fact, I recently started chatting up a lovely Proverbs 31 woman in my missional community. She caught my attention one Wednesday evening because she had shared some unspokens during the popcorn prayer time. I could barely concentrate on the sword drills that followed.
I took her to St. Arbucks for some intentional hang-out time. When we spoke, it was like deep calling unto deep. It turns out we have a lot in common. We both know about ACTS and WWJD, and we’ve both kissed dating good-bye. And we’re both certain we don’t have the gift of singleness! Hallelujah! That Prayer of Jabez really works…
