For my 40th (Yes, it happened. No, I didn't post. Sorry!) The Rev and Doc gave my twin sister and I a spa day.
This was in preparation for our SURPRISE PARTY!
We had our nails done, and we got to have whatever we wanted done to our hair.
I had mine straightened.
However, she didn't have enough time to cut it so I had to go back.
Another shampoo. Another blowdry. So sad.
This woman is smart.
She remembered every. single. detail. of our conversation 2 weeks later!
And then she taught me a wonderful lesson.
"Do you know what worship means?" she asked.
"It means to bring war against"
(or something like that...who can remember exactly!?!)
"And if you are ever at a time when you are feeling attacked, WORSHIP! The Bible says that God inhabits the praises of His people. If HE is there, evil cannot be. So worship! Give halleluia! Praise his name! It will send evil running."
I've never thought of that. Worship as a way of fighting evil.
Next time I find myself under "attack"...and we all have been there...I plan to worship!
