Keeping things given to us by God simple, even though we live in a very complicated world.

Be Still

Psalm 46(KJV)

1God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

2Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

3Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

4There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.

5God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.

6The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.

7The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

8Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth.

9He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.

10Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

11The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

There are times that we are so busy that we forget about the Lord. We are looking so hard to find the answers for our problems and we go to great lengths to reach futile results. Without God,there is only confusion. If we would just take time to look around, we would see the wonders of our creator. God's fingerprints are everywhere.

Where I work, whenever something that's being built isn't going to customer's specifications, we give engineering a call. We should also do this in life, as the Lord is the master engineer. Problem is we have people coming to us with their answers, or we want to see how the folks on television are handling it.

We need to be entertained constantly and in our pursuit of constant entertainment we don't take time to hear the still, small voice of God.

Take the time to listen. You will be glad you did.

The last post has been pulled

I pulled the last post here because an anonymous commenter had made mention that I was ignorant of the Catholic denomination. The statement I made was not meant to be all inclusive of the faith and I did not want to risk offending anyone through this, or any, of my blogs. That's not the way I do things here.

Now if I post a scripture that offends, then so be it. The person offended by that has to deal with a higher power than me. And Jesus Himself said that there will be those who will be offended by the gospel.

I want my words to be out of love when I write on this blog.
