Psa 127.3 +

Psa 127.3

“Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and

the fruit of the womb is his reward.”

 

‘Tis Anniversary Week* #2. Married “at the ripe-old-age” of 18, ‘twas fine that we didn’t have a son till ‘64. A 2nd son joined us just before ‘66 ended. A daughter came in ‘70 & she was joined by a final girl in ‘73. God allowed each son to find a wife & each daughter to be found by a husband. Then the Lord allowed each couple to reproduce. Martha & I are blessed with 8 grandsons (5 Bryans to carry on name, God willing) & 10 granddaughters. 3 of the “grands” are married bringing our total to 21, plus 2 “great-grands.”

“Spirit-filled hearts are always tender and

they see men through the tears of holy compassion.”

– Samuel               Chadwick, /Way to Pentecost/

 

* TRINITY * (9.)

Eph 2.18 For through Him [Christ] we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

 

 

DENY NOT THE WILL

God did not implant within the plant, what we call “free will.”

He gave more choice to animals but no free will still.

Nor does the Sea, or Stone, or Storm

Have a will about its form.

Only in lowly man (young, middle or aged) was it norm.

Therefore He controls all above

Except His crowning creation man.

Help us Lord submit our will,

Now, and always to your plan.

Mat 7.13

“…Broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and

many there be which go in thereat:”

 

Those on the broad road fail to realize h-o-w broad it is. It has “good” people & “good ole boys.” It was souls who’ve kill no one & snipers who’ve cold-bloodedly destroyed hundreds. It was atheists & those who’ve religiously argued against them; drinkers & tee-totallers, ladies & “ladies of the night.” What do they have in common? They’ve chosen to reject (at least delay coming to) God’s Son for Salvation.

“Christ says, ‘Give me All…I want You.

I have no come to torment your natural self, but to kill it…’”

– C S Lewis, /Beyond Personality/

 

There’s a broad spectrum of people who blame others. “It was my preacher’s fault.” “I had a poor teacher.” “My boss never showed me how.” “It’s my wife, my husband, my kids, my parents…” The very worst of these are those who blame . . . ready for this? They blame God – “God wills that some be saved, some lost.” No. No one will be able to say “in that day” it was God’s fault. “…Whosoever believeth in him should not perish…”
