ok, so now is the time I get to put into action my faith. Slow computers, broken dishwasher, phones batteries (notice the plural) dying, no cell phone service at the house, printer died 2 weeks ago, garage refrigerator took up the ghost last night: taking along with it --5 lbs of ground beef, 4 steaks, one pot roast, and numerous ice pops. The lawn needs mowing, the fence needs fixing, the new kitty is creating havic wherever he can. I can say more, but I fear I would be too exposed.
These are the "cares of this world".... praise the Lord, all these things are temporary. I declare that my hope, my future, my goals are not of this world. My view is for eternity.
And I can go to the altar of God. To God, my exceeding joy; And I will praise You with the harp, O God, my God (Psm 43:4).
As a result of these concerns I choose to go to the altar and identify with Him. I consent to Him directing my ways. He knows my needs. His need, however is to work Himself into me as my life and my everything so that I can take Him as my person, live Him and express Him. That is the desire of God's heart and the focal point of the bible. I chose to keep my Joy inspite of all these worldly worries. Amen
