Met With Overwhelming Choices!

 I’ve been looking for bookcases.


Because the old ones were destroyed in the flood. I’ve been looking at new bookcases so I can empty the boxes and get my office back together.

Looking Where?

In stores, but mostly online:

  • Wayfair
  • Amazon
  • Hayneedle
  • Ikea
  • Furniture stores
  • Office Furniture stores
  • And so forth

Find Any?

O yes. I have found hundreds, thousands, from $150 to $2500.

Bookshelves that were…

  • Tall
  • Short
  • Wide
  • Narrow
  • Deep
  • Shallow
  • Oak
  • Pine
  • Birch
  • Poplar
  • Composite
  • Plywood
  • Painted, stained, and distressed

It was overwhelming. I felt overwhelmed.

Not the shelves I needed, but close, really very close.

What did I do?

 I had our Executive Minister make the decision. She has excellent taste and finds the right thing for the right space. But not me, I was ready for pine boards and cinderblocks.

The bookcases were delivered yesterday and they look great. It’s amazing what happens when you ask the right person with the right skills for help.

To Close

I’ve had other overwhelming needs, like being lifted out of the darkness and brought into the light. The forgiveness of sins, a new birth, and a divine connection. I needed a relationship with God.

Guess what! I found the right person with the right skills to help me. His name is Jesus, the Messiah, our Emanuel, and I’ve been invited to his birthday party. It’s in a couple of weeks and I’m so excited!

As one furniture salesman said to me:

“He’s the reason for the season.”
