i was invited to a private showing of a movie in
modesto, an hour away. taylor was showered and
ready, with not so much as a murmur of complaint.
it was at a small church, where my dear friends,
aubrey and monica mcgann pastor.
taylor is looking for a job.
with fresh degree in film under his arm.
we had decided we'd go and do whatever,
and see if God had a surprise waiting for us.
somewhere. it is amazing and incredible how
God can draw people together for God-ordained
purposes in the most unexpeced meetings and
encounters. it was a precious time. and i was
so proud having my son. rarely am i in public
with one of my children, able to share the joy of
their spirited, bright, clear-eyed goodness.
for God's perfectly-shaped, next assignment
for taylor. and the perfect wife. one who will
love Jesus and taylor through thick and thin.
tomorrow night is bsf.
but let me share some Scripture that lays out
our dilemma as Christians.
we know law is spiritual, but i am unspiritual...
sold as a slave to sin. vs.15..i do not understand what i do
for what i want to do i do not do but
what i hate i do. vs. 16..and if i do what i do not want to do,
i agree the law is good. vs. 17..it is no longer i myself who do
it, but it is sin living in me. i have the desire to do what is good,
but i cannot carry it out.
so i cry out.
may Jesus lead us out of ourselves.
of our bent to sin. and may we worship...worship...
clinging to the heart of God. sin can have
no hold over us....for that was all settled and taken
care of on the Cross.
don't be too hard on yourselves today.
but still believe victory can be ours.
and we can overcome. yes! we can.
ALWAYS, in Christ's power, overcome.
by the BLood of the Lamb. and the stripes
of Jesus by which we are healed.
we will NOT be shamed.
defeated. hopeless. we are victors
in the Race.
