Love you all, praying for you.
I just love God’s Word. It gives perspective, a new perspective, a different perspective, usually like heaven is higher than the earth. Do you know what is probably my least favorite sport? Probably baseball. It’s not the game or the players or the teams… And I will watch during the playoffs and the world series, so I don’t hate it… It just doesn’t seem fair. It’s the only place I know where you can fail seventy percent of the time and still make millions. If you bat three hundred, you’re failing seventy percent of the time, and you still get that multi-million dollar contract? Who gets that? If you failed seventy percent of the time on your job, you’d get fired. But really… if you think about it. That’s life. How many times did God prompt you to say something, and you didn’t. Or God warned you not to do something with your feet or your mouth… Don’t go there, don’t go with that person, or those people – that’s not gonna end well… Or don’t down that street hear her house… or don’t say that, don’t go down that hole with your words, grumbling or complaining, gossiping, slandering, or accusing, getting all greedy, or all full of yourself, and you did it anyway? Maybe sometimes, even seventy percent of the time? If you didn’t have that ticket to heaven, by your faith in Jesus, and His death in your place, you would be without hope, guilty. Fired. But that’s God’s mercy. He batted a thousand so you could get the contract. And when you already have it… that guaranteed contract to heaven. He doesn’t expect you to bat a thousand, He did that. But He gives you grace to say “No” to what doesn’t please Him, or help you. And the grace to say “Yes” to whatever He told you to do today. His grace – it’s like that hanging curve ball, just hanging there, just waiting for you to knock it out of the park! He doesn’t keep track, if you strike out, you’re not called out, you’re call up to bat again. His grace is there for you this next time. Praying that you will keep swinging. The secret is His Plan, His Word, and simple obedience, and walking with someone… The more you do that, the slower those pitches become. Just hanging there for you!
