Skittish

You have heard of so much going wrong. The newspapers are full of grief, discord and scandal. That life insurance agent is still trying to land an interview. Your cough of the last two days has you concerned. Hydro rates are going up.

It's just good management to be cautious and trouble-shooting isn't it?

But you claim to be a follower of the King, a sheep in the contented , upward-climbing flock.

Watch your mouth! Watch your vision! Watch your interests!

You will notice that ten minutes of honest prayer and pouring out will cause the clouds to pass. Why are you reluctant? Why are WE so reluctant?

And that Bible study schedule; what happened to that? Oh, I know...friends, entertainments, fidgeting. And the peace leaves; and the edginess arrives. And the heart and ears tend toward the dark and unsettled. And that World out there is so willing to oblige.

Misery loves company. Step out of this parade. Turn around. You will find that Jesus has been there, quietly at your side. Waiting.

His assignments have eternal consequence.

Psalm 91: 9-11

  1. Dear Doug
    Just plain common sense tells us that taking all our problems to Jesus is the best thing we can do, don't you think! He has promised us that nothing will ever be able to separate us from His love in Christ Jesus!

  2. The world is definitely willing to oblige. "Draw nigh unto Him and He will draw nigh unto you." There is no rest outside of the peace of our Father within us. Good word, Doug.
