Last Thursday on Thankful Thursday I said I was thankful for the V8 moment from God. Several asked, "What is a V8 moment"? So, I am going to explain what it is to me.
V8 is a vegetable juice that is suppose to be so good for you, especially for those who don't eat their vegetables. There is commercials out where you see different people getting tea, coffee, soft drink or something and then they see V8 juice and the raise their hand and tap their head on the side or forehead and say "Wow, I coulda had a V8". To me it means when we say "light bulb moment"... Like you finally understand what is going on or what someone is telling you. "I finally got it"!
Anyway, I try sometimes to come up with different comments. Sometimes they are just plain o' stupid and sometimes they sound good. LOL I ususally try these out on my friends and you should see their looks sometimes! Talk about funny!!
I have been praying for God to show me areas in my life where I need to work on or improve. For the last several weeks, different blogs that I was reading, scripiture, the word LOVE was coming up. I asked God if this was an area I need to work on and if so to give me another clue.
My friend Mitzi posted a devotion on Holding on to the truth...titled "I Am the True Vine". At the end she asked "Are you a dirty leaf in need of the Vinedresser to pick you up?Or..Are you a nice, full fruitful vine?" ***I encourage you to go and read the devotion ****
LOVE is a Spiritual Fruit!
What happened next is what just blew me away and made me realize "V8 moment" what God was telling me.
My friend Krista posted on Word Filled Wednesday -LOVE. She used 2 Corinthians 13:1-8, which describes love and she said "If God is love and we are to follow God's example in all things, then we are also to BE this verse". ***read this post too***
Be the verse means to BE LOVE! There are days that love comes easily other days ...well, let's just say EXTREMELY HARD!!
God has a sense of humor and I know he laughs alot....especially with me. How great that after I asked God to give me a clue that HE sent me not one but two! HE really knows me and how I have blonde moments. HE wanted to make sure I got it....and this is where the V8 moment came in. I finally got what God is telling me.
HE's still working on me. To make me the way I should be. It took HIM just a week to make the moon and stars, the sun and the earth, Jupiter and Mars. How loving and patient HE must be. HE's still working on me. A song I use to sing as a child.
The Vinedresser is still working on me. HE is picking me up and washing the dirt off my fruit.
Have you had a V8 moment lately?
