    When It Rains, It Pours!!!

    Hello again. I was off today, from work and my rocker, I'm usually off my rocker most days. Anyway, I was off from work and was looking forward to getting some things accomplished today, but it rained. I hate the rain, it makes me depressed with it's grey sky and dark clouds. It's hard to get motivated when your landscape is shrouded in doom and despair. Yea there were some sunny invasions of light, but they were few. I have multiple umbrellas, and could I find any?? NOOOOOOOO! None! I almost brought another one, but the 'borrowers' would have taken that one too. Sure I got out to run a few errands but, I didn't want to. I'm looking at all this stuff I should be doing and need to really do before it overtakes every occupant in this house. But alas,...all of it is still here undone like many things in my life.

    My wife is going through some very difficult things and your prayers for her are much needed and greatly appreciated. She called me multiple times today and the distress in her voice was unbearable. I hurt so greatly for her but absolutely can't do anything but pray for her. Add that to my day, and life is beginning to seem well, sucky! I hate the fact that I can't comfort her or that I'm not there to be able to tend the boys so she could have a moment to herself. I am supposed to have Victory in JESUS..., but I feel so much like as looser in Jesus. Lost in all the muck and mire of responsibilities and no getup to go do it; lost in feelings of being overwhelmed and feeling like I'm drowning in grief. I missed bible study tonight, if there was ever a time to be there, it was tonight and I missed it.

    Loose ends and things undone, is that a country song? Naa, but it should be and I'll write it, but we'll get someone else to sing it. Loose ends and things undone is my life's theme song. Marriage...still separated...undone. Spring cleaning...still uncleaned...undone. Meeting with pastor...still un-met...undone. Discipleship training with the kids from work; for this week... still untrained...undone. How do I get all these ends tied up?

    2ND Thessalonians 2:16-17 "Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal comfort and a wonderful hope, comfort you and strengthen you in every good thing you do and say."

    Well, after reading that I don't feel so overwhelmed. I haven't claimed or believed that Comfort or Strength today. I am sure that if I had, my day might have been more productive. I said I hated the rain, but I really don't and I really cant because GOD uses the rain, thunder and lightening to reveal his glory and authority on the earth; WOW!!! Think I'm kidding, read Job 36:24-33. In this scripture the writer says that even the cows know this, surely I am smarter than the cows...apparently not today. The rain nourishes the ground so that fields with crops and my yard can be fruitful and multiply, and along with the crops and my grass are those dreadful dandelions...Seems as if God makes the sun to shine and the rain to fall on the just and the unjust [plants] too. Anyway I'm loving the rain again, YAY!

    My wife and I can't fix our marriage either. It's a Holy institution between 2 createds; before 1 creator. In and of ourselves we can't fix it, but God can. He can show us what we need to do and how to do it. Jesus can heal and remove the hurt and pain and bring eternal and everlasting forgiveness. He can comfort us through times of despair and strengthen our hearts and minds to complete restoration; if we let Him. The other things, I just need to quit having pity parties, and get them done. Jesus and his love for me, now that is motivation.

    Dear Jesus, please help me and others to rejoice in you and our salvation; so that the Son shines in our lives regardless if the Sun ever does. Help us to be internally and eternally joy filled with the hope and courage that grace gives. In Jesus name... Amen!!!
    Until next time,

    I need an encouraging word!!!!!

    Hello! I really love Jesus, and since my wife and I have been separated, I've grown to love and know him more.  I miss my Sons and my wife very much.  I'd appreciate some words of encouragement and scripture that may speak patience and peace to my soul.  If you are separated or divorced, how did Jesus help you through?  What did you do to help yourself cope and take your mind off things?  My wife and I are working on reconciling , but it isn't  going well, and hurt and pain abound on both sides.  We've been separated since November of '06.  Have you read 2ND Corinthians 5:7 lately?  It reads " For we walk by faith, and not by sight."  KJV  I have to be honest with you, I haven't done that well this week.  I am constantly pulled by my emotions and what I can physically see.  If I'm not careful, I'll think that my situation is without hope and that Christ is finished with me.  Satan tempts us with our physical senses and emotions.  If he can keep us from meditating on what is good and true, we can't see the light of the Son shining through the darkness.  Satan isn't just a great deceiver, but he is greatly deceived.  Remember when Jesus was led into the wilderness and tempted by satan; Mathew 4:1-11?  What exactly was that goofball thinking?  Did he really believe that he could tempt the  Son of God?  Did he really believe that he had something of value to offer to the one who already owned the earth that they were standing on?  If he had a clue,  he'd have known that his efforts were going to be unfruitful .   Lord, please help me and others to walk by faith, the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen; Heb. 11:1, and not by what our human eyes can see.  There is plenty down here to focus on that isn't of a good report.  However, the reality is that you are here with us and love us unconditionally and despite all present struggles can grant us perfect peace and joy and forgiveness because you paid the perfect price for our sin on the cross.  In Jesus name, AMEN  !!!!!!!!!!!!HAPPY EASTER!!!!!!!!!
    Until next time,
