in a hundred ways - over thousands of days and with amazing creativity my God continues to amaze, surprise and refresh me with His love, grace and wisdom. If God was not so big, powerful and complex that we stood in absolute awe of Him, what would that be like? Who wants a God you can comprehend or control?

"when i was hungry you gave me to eat" -------------------

I have no doubt that the men i meet with Tuesdays are deeply spiritual and sincere in their love for the Lord. Perhaps I should see them at an hour later than 6am? ------ I am not good, at all. I am better than I was, but No way good or right or close to what I can be with God's help. I feel a deep burden for these four men who do not comprehend the work that God is doing in me, nor value the effervescence which their own selected study and the scriptures they are going through are stirring in this old heart of mine. Nehemiah 8

Philip 2:3 Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; 4 do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. 5 Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men.... and to Timothy Paul says "10 Now you followed my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, patience, love, perseverance, 11 persecutions, and sufferings, such as happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium and at Lystra; what persecutions I endured, and out of them all the Lord rescued me! 12 Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. 13 But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is [h]inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for [i]training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
