We can’t escape His love – hallelujah!
We all know that the Epistles of Paul are beautiful and loving. They inspire and encourage. What we forget is how much of his work was done in prison,bruised, dying . . . we are often imprisoned by our rough spot, spiritual speed bumps, and challenges in life.
Do we reflect Christ in the way that Paul did while we are challenged?
I have challenges . . . frustrations which seem endless. I have not thought about Paul’s reaction versus my own until the convicted me of this on Sunday. I seek to grow. It is what the Lord desires. Following Christ means taking on challenges. How can we face the big jobs if we whine over the smaller ones?
The Lord watches over me always!
Oh, I’m fine, I’ve always said
But it was so seldom true.
The admission that I needed more
Awakened my heart to you, Lord.
It has made all the difference.
Now, even when fear creeps in
One glance into your loving eyes . . .
fine is redefined forevermore in me.

The Stranger’s Cat
Glancing outside my window
and across the street,
I see a tired home
in near darkness.
I wonder who lives there
for I have never seem
oh neighbor of mine.
I wonder if you are happy
tall or short.
I know you have love in your heart,
for I have met your cat.
I see the garage door
is always left open . . .
but just enough for my furry friend
to pass in and out.
I’d like to someday meet
the one who loves my furry friend.
