My heart is right there with you brother! I know that I could easily step up and lead through the pulpit, but I tread carefully around that realization. I have always tread carefully around mistakes made by any of my pastors, for "there go I." Am I perfect? Far from it in most areas of my life but I work at becoming better in these areas. Will I shy away from what the Lord has laid upon my heart that He wishes me to do? No. Currently He wants me to post His Word on this site to help offset the flood of misleading posting about the Bible on the internet.
My prayers are with you, brother. May the peace of Christ embrace your heart and give you tranquility in your inner garden.

JOHN THE BAPTIST
Being groom to The Son is a work to be done.
Being bribe to The Son something else is.
Johannes the Baptist made bribes to The Son.
And the priests of that time were just selfish.
Priests all knew what was coming, were baptized and won.
And they could not afford to The Son being married.
Their lamps would not lit since all lamp oil was gone.
How come? Full of themselves never worried.
Priests all recognized fraudsters. The eye of the ruler.
The cross being set up when wills not adjoined.
But they thought being rulers themselves was much cooler
than being responsible, faithful, and coined.
John the Baptist was literate, wise, and intelligent.
He took the job being groom to The Son.
He was book-learned and taught by The Law. His incitement:
Being of use. To The Lord. And be done.
Never he asked for Jesus to pay him attention.
He never displayed by the mouth of The Lord.
Never he asked Lord Jesus what was His intention.
The greatest man woman will ever afford?

Thank you, kind sirs!
Eric, right or wrong, I just tend to blurt out what I see. It takes some getting used to, for others, and I am still always having problems with it, in my own mind. But you do understand the feeling. When I speak, I usually don't have any air of superiority, I am just stating it as I see it. But I do step back and examine myself at times and find myself wanting, in that respect or others. That is really where I can use someone bold enough to stand up to me, but usually they do not! Your kind words are greatly appreciated. What is also appreciated is when someone tells me I am out of line when I am!
Anders, you are quite prolific! Did you just write (right) this? Was it something you had? Either way, thanks! It encourages and amuses! Both are good! And It will make me think some more...
Blessings to all, even those who dare not comment, I understand...
