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

Pray faithfully

A situation addressed in my church this morning has prompted this latest post. Our pastor was mentioning a something he had to deal with in the past week. He didn't mention specifics, such as who and what, and in my opinion, he didn't need to as it was not any of my business. One thing I do need to do is take it to the Lord. He knows the specifics and I have to put my trust in Him to direct those affected.

Reminds me of a time many years ago when I requested prayer for my wife and I made it an unspoken request. Some people come to me after the service to ask what the problem was because it would help them if they knew and they could pray intelligently.

I say pray faithfully. Give it to a God who knows all, including someone else's ailments, financial status, and spiritual condition.

God doesn't give extra credit for knowing more than others.

The title says it all-I'm Forgiven

From the early eighties comes this live performance by Russ Taff. I love the chorus-" I'm forgiven, now I have a reason for livin', Jesus keeps givin' and givin'...Givin' till my heart overflows."
