My Inner Geek

Live Long and Prosper!

I've been keeping a secret from all those who know me. I am truly a geek at heart.

I try to look cool, act cool, say cool stuff. Sometimes I'm successful.

Mwah-ha-ha-ha! I've had you all fooled! 

I'm just a geek at heart. 

I'm a normal, run-of-the-mill person who enjoys Star Trek, The Three Stooges, Computers, Reading, Word Games, and probably a few other things that are considered "geeky."

But who cares? It's a lot of hard work trying to be cool. 

Probably many of us who grew up in the Happy Days era knew Fonzie was the epitome of cool. But even he had a softer, nerdier side that he only showed to those he loved.

Why are we hiding? 

Someone will laugh at us, call us names, put us down. Oh, I've had my share of those put-downs. It's not fun to be on the receiving end of name-calling.

The fact of the matter is, it doesn't matter what other people think. It only matters what God thinks. He created me exactly like I am. He knew before I was even born that I would enjoy geeky things, that I would laugh at puns, that I have this quirky chirppy sound that I make when I hiccup, I crack my knuckles, and I sometimes snort when I laugh super-hard.

So share your inner Geek with the world, because...

Psalm 139:13-16

You (God) made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
    and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
    Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
    as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
You saw me before I was born.
    Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
    before a single day had passed.

Ephesians 2:10

For we are God’s masterpiece. 
He has created us anew in Christ Jesus,
so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

And God loves us so much that...

Isaiah 49:16a

 See, I have written your name on the palms of my hands.

Luke 12:7

And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. 
So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God
than a whole flock of sparrows.
 Confession time: What are your geeky traits? Do tell...  Please leave a comment and share.

Love you & your inner geek!! I loved the line that's" hard work to be cool " I discovered long ago that I wasn't very good at it. I'm so far removed from cool that I don't even know what IS considered geeky vs. cool!
