We who preach and write, do so in a manner different from which the Scriptures have been written. We write while we make progress. We learn something new every day. We speak as we still knock for understanding...If anyone criticizes me when I have said what is right, he does me an injustice. But I would be more angry with the one who praises me and takes what I have written for Gospel truth than I would be with the one who criticizes me unfairly. -Augustine

My Mom!

Yesterday, my 77 year old mom, a new believer, called me all excited to tell me that she only had a few more chapters left before she had read the entire Bible! I was so excited for her; what an accomplishment! In the midst of all the depressing economic news coming from the media, there are still many believers who are excited about what God is doing in their lives. David in the book of Psalms reminds us that his people will never beg bread. We are challenged from the prophet Malachi, to test God and he will open the storehouse of heaven. In Jeremiah God says that his thoughts toward us are thoughts of peace and not evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the LORD, and I will restore your fortunes “oh, what a promise, what positive news! Broadcast that CNN and Fox News! Oh, if God’s people would turn off the pseudo information fabricated by the media and tune in the positive messages of God’s Word to think on things that are true, and honorable, just, pure, and lovely these are the things that will take our mind, heart, and spirit, out of the darkness and into the exciting light of God’s promises that never return void.” God’s promises are generating a new love and outlook on life for my 77 year old mom these promises are available for all who seek Him with their whole heart.
