Hey all

Even with this new life I'm trying to live I still have worries and fears. Well, things started banging around in my head and I just kept coming back to this,

 21 When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, "Lord, what about this man?" 22 Jesus said to him, "If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow me!"

Okay, so I may be thinking a bit much but this is what held me in thought.

Peter says "Lord, what about this man" I thought this is just like me when I say "Lord what about

my wife"

my children"

our home"

the car"

everything else"

I could just hear my scolding, what is all this to you, everything you worry about are all mine. I have all this in my hand, is there no trust in me.

Get off of the fence and follow after me.

I don't know if any of this even applies to the verses above, could have been a lesson I needed to learn.

I do know it painted a picture of how much faith and trust I really had.

Sounds to me like you hit it right on the head.......Christ our first love........follow Him.

We should then turn all our concerns over to him........put those concerns in his hands.......and have faith that He will take care of things.   


Have a nice week       David


"He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me.  And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me."   (Mt. 10:37)


Nothing we have to work at really..........it just happens over time.......He becomes a Christian's first and greatest love.  Those connected to God through the Holy Spirit who has come to live inside........just naturally love God more and more with each passing day.


Praise God that He is always teaching us new things........and helping us to grow.

Yes and thanks for your testimony Lee.     Please share more with us in the future.   


God is very patient with us.   It kind of takes our breathe away when we know that it is Him who has taught us an important lesson.........that He has paid us a visit.   


He recently taught me to allow Him to fight the difficult battles......to turn things completely over to Him......rather than relying on our own strength.


   It is with great faith that David....just a teenager....stood against Goliath.......when the warriors of Israel were afraid to do so. 


We stumble all the time......but He is very patent with us.


  He cares for us very much.......and knows even the number of hairs on our head.....the passing thoughts in our mind.....etc.  etc. 


Wretched sinners that we are........saved by His grace........the shed blood of our Lord and King Jesus Christ.


Incredible that we are referred to not only as children of God.........but co-heirs with Christ.  This is an amazing thing to contemplate............and leaves me rather speechless.   It is hard for the human mind to fully grasp.


Praise God for all that He has done for us............and have a nice week.

This song has been on my mind for days, an oldie but speaks volumes


What a fellowship, what a joy divine,
Leaning on the everlasting arms;
What a blessedness, what a peace is mine,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.
Leaning, leaning,
Safe and secure from all alarms;
Leaning, leaning,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.

Oh, how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way,
Leaning on the everlasting arms;
Oh, how bright the path grows from day to day,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.
Leaning, leaning,
Safe and secure from all alarms;
Leaning, leaning,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.

What have I to dread, what have I to fear,
Leaning on the everlasting arms;
I have blessed peace with my Lord so near,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.
Leaning, leaning,
Safe and secure from all alarms;
Leaning, leaning,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.   

What a great song
