Well, last week this time we were dealing with “another” snow storm. Snow tends to make a child’s life easier, but an adult’s life just seems to be made more complicated. Well, anyway I came into the office with some added deadlines, sat down, wrote my blog, pushed a button, and ………it went somewhere, but I have no idea where. I tried to find it, but that’s an exercise in futility for me. I didn’t have the time at the time to rewrite it all, so I just jumped back into meeting those deadlines. In case you haven’t figured it out, this is my true, but somewhat lame excuse for no blog last week.
So, here I am a week later, alone in the office because of yet another snow storm! When I’m done, I’ll try not to hit the same button as last week! The snow IS beautiful and I truly praise the Lord it has been coming in the middle of the week, rather than on the weekends. Most years it seems like it ONLY snows on weekends. There have been many wonderful answers to prayer this past week. People have personally shared with me the privilege God gave them to lead someone to Christ. Others have gotten great news on a medical crisis in their life. In my own life God has specifically answered my pleas for specific answers to significant questions that need answers that I wouldn’t otherwise have. Needing the answers reminds me of my utter weakness, which is true, healthy, but most unpleasant. Getting the answers reminds me of His great love. It says He heard. It says He cares. It says He noticed. There is an ongoing humiliation and exaltation that we are called to continually experience as He patiently and persistently teaches us that…
2 Corinthians 12:9
“ But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
So, the last two Sunday mornings have dealt with “What does the Bible say about race and racism?” and “homosexuality and gay marriage.” This next Sunday we will be answering the question “What does the Bible say about environmentalism?” …which, is in fact much more than you might think. Anyway, I do hope to see you this coming Lord’s day.
