God does not send us into the dangerous and exacting life of faith because we are qualified; He chooses in order to qualify us for what he wants us to be or do." Eugene Peterson
Thanks for visiting,

Revives the Soul
Makes wise the simple
Gives joy to the heart
Gives light to the eyes
More precious than pure gold
Sweeter than honey
Warns YOU when you are in harm's way!
I know I do...
Ruminating on these benefits sends me into His arms in an interesting way this morning.
My Jewish friend is reading an English bible for the first time. He is seeking. Now, granted he might not read the New Testament (yet, that is my prayer) - but he is seeking. I am excited for him. He said something to me this last weekend. We were celebrating the birthday of a young woman I am mentoring. We were sitting on the side of a hill, watching a baseball game.
He said something that got me to thinking.
"It is all well and good that you believe that you got this whole Grace thing, that you don't have to worry about eating 'filthy pig' and eat it freely. I think that is fine for you. But even if I were to become one of those 'Messainic Jews' I wouldn't do it. I would observe the rules - they are written for a reason."
So, what do you think?
"The law of the Lord is perfect,
reviving the soul.
The statues of the Lord are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
The precepts of the Lord are right,
giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are radiant,
giving light to the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is pure
The ordinances of the Lord are sure
and altogether righteous.
They are more precious than gold,
than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey,
than honey from the comb.
By them is your servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward."
I know what God has shown me. Just wondering what your thoughts are...
I absolutely love His great REWARD!
