Stay In His Word

The message this morning in church was from James 1:19-25.....but there were many other versus that were referenced, I was taking so many notes...here are some of them... Proverbs 5:7, 6:23, 8:6, 12:1, 14:29, 15:18, 16:32, 21:19 (ouch!!), 22:24, 29:22, John 15:3, Eph 4:22, 1st Peter 2:1, 2nd Cor 7:1, Psalm 119:11...










and then, I kid you not...the pastor closed with Hebrews 11:1.















I just sat in my chair...and cried

cried because I am stubborn to see
because He keeps sending me people
and keeps trying to get my attention......


and this has been quite a week and
I have been met with opposition at every turn....
I pray I am a doer of the Word....
but the enemy likes to steal, kill and destroy....
I have been discouraged and beaten up,
but Jesus came to set me free...

Looking back on my encouragement to David, thinking it was David when it was Donna's candid outpouring , well , I feel abit embarrassed, having been "away" for so long and then to "offer" up words to such battle worn warriors of the Cross , - I think maybe I spoke when I should have just "thought" - --

No it was an honest mistake Passing-thru.
For a few months now it says "Writers Crucible" for our posts and I keep asking that David why it isn't Pilgrim Pals anymore.
Writers Crucible is a nice blog where there is really good writing but I am just as happy to be a "Pilgrim Pal" doncha' know!!! Ha!...love Terry

Oh my! I am chatting with Mr. mackay and come over here to check out Pals after being away for a day, and find PT here and this beautiful post by Mrs. Butler!!!!

Passingthru, you are really here!!! It's sooo good to see you! Remember we used to talk eevry evening together? You got me through some very hard eevnings, because I was missing walking with my dad...and now I just outright miss my dad!!

Mrs. Butler, that is really a lovely post! That's neat that the pastor closed with Heb. 11:1, too ;)

Love to all

LPP
