Hello to all. Well it looks like summer is still going to be with us for a little while yet. Sure has been warm today. I cut grass this morning and then spent part of the afternoon at the football stadium watching young boys play football. Boy was it hot. It was actually miserable and close to dangerous. Obviously, kids can take it a lot better than us senior adults. But my, what we all do for our grandkids.
We will keep the post short and simple tonight. I have some ideas for another short series but I’ve not made a decision as to what it will be. But I’m sure whatever the topic is, the Lord is going to use it to challenge and teach me more than anyone else. That’s the way it has been every other time and I don’t expect it do be any different this time. It reminds me of an old song that has a chorus that goes something like this:
He’s still working on me. To make me what I ought to be. It took Him just a week to make the moon and stars. The sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars. How loving and patient He must be. He’s still working on me.
I do have one other thing to share with you. This past week I was listening to David Jeremiah on the radio and he made a statement that has been on my mind ever since. It was rather simple but yet profound. He said “We receive what we hear and it lands on our ears. But only when the Holy Spirit moves what we’ve heard from our ears to our hearts will we be able to use it as God intended.” I have thought a lot about that and have come to realize how very true it is. That why the Bible says “Be ye doer’s of the Word and not hearer’s only.” So many times I have not allowed the Holy Spirit to move what I’ve heard from my ears to my heart. I have missed what God was wanting to do in my life. I pray He will forgive me and that I will have a greater desire to be led by the Holy Spirit on a daily basis.
Isn’t it amazing how God never gives up on us!
I thank each of you for being a sounding board for me and how you continue to be an encouragement to me. May God richly bless you.
