R2D2 (Joshua 1:1-10)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “R2D2.”  Do I need to explain?  It’s probably only the coolest robot in history.  If you watched any of the Star Wars movies, this little guy has pretty much stolen the show numerous times.  But did you also know that this is a term for fighter pilots, as they use it for their RIOs (Radio Intercept Officer)?  That’s the fighter pilot’s flying companion, his partner that makes sure he can see everything that the pilot cannot.  Pretty cool, huh?  I remember watching the movie Top Gun back from the early 1980s, with Tom Cruise.  His character was named “Maverick,” and his RIO was named “Goose.”  Again, one of the best movies of all time!  Well, the cool thing about your life and God is that he will never leave you.  It’s almost like he’s your everyday RIO.

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” ~Josh 1:9

My question is: what would it take for you to give God a chance to be a part of your everyday life?  Sounds like a little bit of a silly question, I know.  The way that I see it, I am lucky that God wants to be so intricately and intimately involved with my life.  But, he does.  My prayer is that each of you thinks about your life in terms of the journey.  You have a couple of options.  You can either do stuff on your own, or you can have the best R2D2 the world… God.  A little bit of a crazy analogy, but fitting for sure.

Praying for you,
