Have you ever found yourself a little off track, maybe even a whole lot lost, in some questionable or awkward circumstance when suddenly you felt like you had been whopped up the side of the head, that something, someone, somehow got your attention in no uncertain terms? I’m not suggesting – necessarily – that it was Jesus who did the whopping—but I won’t say it wasn’t him either.
