2Ti 3.17 +

2 Ti 3.17

“That the man of God may be perfect,

thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”

“…Be always ready to own any fault you have been in.”

– John Wesley.”

Are you praying? Have you carved out some extra time in the AM? Or the PM? Or invited the Lord to awaken you in the night so you can get up & pray? I’d love to hear of a true moving of God over there or the opposite direction. Whether I ever hear about them or not, May the Lord of Heaven come down & move among us. – 8/12/21

“The blade differs from the full corn in the ear.  It is the precursor of the corn

has identical life in it which the corn has & the corn cannot be without it; but it is not the corn.”
– R S Foster

Please don’t defend the Revolutionary War because some pastors were in favor of it. Truth be known, there may have been as many (or more) who opposed the war but since the colonies won the preachers who opposed the war were ignored. In case you’re not aware of it, there were many people who moved to Canada rather than fight against the king. Both Paul (Rom 13) & Peter (1Pe 2.17) teach to honor the king – to revolt sounded wrong to a number of those past Americans. – 8/16/21


“Alone” can have a dismal sound of sadness.

“Alone with God,” a delightful sound of gladness.

When the heart is pure, or seeking such a heart.

Lovers like to be alone; wish to never more part.

A wonderful Biblical truth is that God Made Man. A sad damning truth is that many men have made gods. Ancient heathen men: stone & wood & metal – modern heathenish men: paper (folding money & pictures) & millions of feet of movie film. Image gods & gods of images control more of society than is commonly admitted. Please saint, subtract yourself & your precious family from the gods of images. – 8/20/21

Jer 39.15

“Now the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah,

while he was shut up in the court of the prison, saying”

“There is no fully life than the life given fully to God.”

Much Belated Thank You. Andrew recently ate Long John Silvers & called afterward remembering our “picnic,” TN c. 1974. We 6 went down 321 to Foothills Parkway. We parked at the unopened end, walked up to the first curve, found a spot to spread out a picnic & enjoyed (possibly a first for us) a Long John Silver supper. I’ve no memory of who may’ve given to make that possible (Giver may already be in Glory) But “Thank You.” Many gifts in ‘74-‘85 made such memories happen. God Bless Thanks so much. – 8/20/21
