Can You Spell Dirigible? Neither could I, but it was no problem for Lori Anne. At 6 years old, Lori Anne is the youngest contestant ever at the National Spelling bee and she nailed it—“D-I-R-I-G-I-B-L-E”.
Lori loves to swim and play outdoors, and she hopes to someday be an Astro-biologist. I am pretty sure I had no idea how to spell “Astro-Biologist” when I was 6 years old.
As I thought about that word “DIRIGIBLE,” I looked it up, and it means, “designed for or capable of being directed, controlled, or steered by something.” That is how God designed us…we are to be DIRIGIBLE- controlled and steered by God’s spirit, and we will bear godly fruit. The Apostle Paul says, the Fruit of the Spirit is “…love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”(Gal. 5:22,23)
Those are all really good things…so be DIRIGIBLE today…even if you can’t spell it.
And Have a Blessed Day
