Psa 91.2

“I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress:

my God; in him will I trust.”


‘Tis Anniversary Week * #5. God directed us differently than He did those who stayed 3-5 decades. We’re happy with His guidance. We were 11 yrs near the Great Smoky National Park (can’t tell the # of times been around Cades Cove). We were over 3 ½ yrs, 50 miles from N’Leans (got to cross flat Lake Pontchartrain, be on it shrimping, & visit the French Qrt). Spent 4 yrs pastoring real cowboys in SD (visited the Faces many times & help in branding). Were about 2 yrs in AZ (multiple visits to Grand Canyon). Had privilege of pastoring in Canada & seeing “the States” through this neighbor’s eyes. God Lead Every Step.

“All that Calvary provived for us, judgment will require from us.”

What is a tattoo? A mark. What kind of mark? A mark of attachment. Attachment to whom? Ah, that may be the rub. Look at the lives of those who are the most “inked.” Do you want to spend eternity with those whose lives/words/deaths are (somewhat) reflected in the words & symbols inked on them?

MRS. LOT    

Can there be any doubt, Mrs. Lot could pout,

To always have her way?

The angels pulled her bodily out,

But the affections inside would not be denied;

The real Mrs. Lot wanted to stay.

Mat 7.21

“Not every one that saith unto me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter into the kingdom of heaven;

but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”


You lost a close friend or perhaps a mate. They had sang in church, taught Sunday Sch., preached, were possibly a denominational leader. A minister consoling you “assumed” them in heaven, the preacher at the funeral “assumed” them in heaven & you’ve “assumed . . . Don’t. Did their life match God’s Guideline for Living? (I’ve prayed for 2 who lost mates NOT to assume the other made it.) Please do not stop short of doing what you /know/ God wants from YOU, regardless of how “So-n-So” lived. Death is serious.

“…We seldom find Christian miracles denied except

by those who have abandoned some part of the Christian doctrine.”

– C S Lewis, /Miracles/


Heaven is no man’s “right.” Heaven is 100% under God’s control & is His throne. (“Heaven is my throne…” Act 7.49). Our only hope of going to heaven is to receive & respond to His Royal Invitation. Have you seen yourself as a sinner yet, & confessed to God in Jesus name? Have you let God know that accepting His Invitation is the absolute number 1 (#1) item on your life-list? Get serious with God.
