EXCEEDING WISE
Solomon wrote, "There be four things which are little upon the earth, but they are exceeding wise: The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer; The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks; The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands;
The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings' palaces." (Proverbs 30:24-28) "There are four things which are little upon the earth, but they are exceeding wise! Take the conies who are but feeble folk, yet they make their houses in the rocks. In other words, what the conies lack in strength they make up in wisdom! They are so weak and unprotected in themselves, so that for safety they flee to and live in the rocks. As these conies in their feebleness seek for a strong refuge and safe habitation, so you and I should do the same. Certainly we are no less feeble than the conies, especially now spiritually speaking. What defenses do we …

COMMON GROUND RELIEF
Here is a wonderful organization that began the first week after Hurricane Katrina flooded New Orleans. With then only 3 volunteers, they came with compassion to help the people. Their's was the first organization to open up a medical clinic in Algiers, and provide immediate assistance (food, water, supplies) to the thousands of low-income residents unable to evacuate. The recent hurricanes not only devastated much of the city of New Orleans, they exposed long-standing injustices faced by the residents of the lower income, African American communities. It is estimated that over 275,000 housing units were destroyed and efforts to clean up, repair or open livable housing has been slow. In New Orleans Parish, nearly 40% of the community earns under $20,000 per year, and more than 70% of the households are headed by a single parent. Literacy rate in New Orleans is roughly 39%. It is critical, therefore, that the immediate needs of the community are being met while …

Army Intel Capt. Eric May warns Bush cabal days away from a nuclear strike
Texas City resident "opens up a hornet's nest" as he warns local law enforcement about the possibility of nuclear strike. Sources inside the Houston Police Department (HPD) have confirmed officers in recent weeks have been taking part in nuclear disaster drills, adding more fuel to the fire that the city is being targeted by the "enemies within" the Bush administration for a nuclear attack. "In the last week I have multi-checked with sources of mine in the Houston Police Department and confirmed that HPD has been running nuclear disaster drills," said former Army Intel Capt. Eric May, who is trying to alert Americans of a possible nuclear strike in the upcoming days, possibly to take place in the Texas City or Houston metro area...…

THE WORDS WE SPEAK
This morning, I am reminded of what the Scriptues say about the words we speak. For example, Jesus said, "A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned." (Matthew 12:35-37) Then Paul wrote, "Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.&q…

KEITH GREEN (1953 - 1982)
Tonight I was listening to a cd my daughter made for me which had on it a couple of songs sung by Keith Green. I was deeply touched by his music, so I thought I would share a bit about this anointed worshipper. Keith came from a Jewish background in Sheepshead Bay NY. He ran away from home as a teenager, looking for musical fame and spiritual enlightenment in the late 1960's. He married Melody and they both converted to Christ when he was 21 years old. They immediately began taking troubled people off the streets and into their home and eventually founded The Last Days Ministries, transforming a Texas ranch into a school of discipleship and evangelism. I remember when he shocked the Christian culture and music business in the 80's when he began offering his recordings for free or "whatever you can afford." Sadly, on July 28, 1982, Keith, along with his three year old son Josiah, his two year old daughter, Bethany, and ministry friends were al…

GOD'S COVENANT
Yesterday, after a very rainy morning, I saw a beautiful rainbow in the clouds on my way to work. Joy filled my heart becaused it reminded me of God's faithful promises. Later, my daughter told me that both she and Hannah also saw a rainbow yesterday morning on their way to school. Thank You, Lord Jesus, for all your promises to us which are Yes and Amen! "And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlast…

PENSACOLA BEACH
It was unusually warm today, so Hannah and I went to the beach to look for shells and have fun. While sitting on the beach, I asked Hannah to take a handful of sand. "How many grains of sand do you think you are holding?" She couldn't guess. Then I said, "Did you know that God thinks about you more than all the grains of sand on all the beaches all over the world?" Her eyes grew big as I concluded, "He thinks about us a lot, doesn't He!"

Psalm 139:17, 18 "How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee."

THE END OF THE SPEAR
Last night, a few of us went to see this new movie based on the true story of five missionary families who lost all their husbands in the Amazon in 1956. I was deeply touched by it and highly recommend it.

WATCH AND PRAY
Today I am reminded of the words of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ: "Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch." (from Mark 13)

THE JOY OF THE LORD IS MY STRENGTH!Nehemiah 8:10
Yesterday, I returned from 3 days visiting the Teen Challenge facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee, which is a 7 hour drive from here. This is a residential Christian based discipleship program that helps those with life controlling problems. They evangelize people who have drug, alcohol, and other addictions by the power of Jesus Christ and the Lord may be opening up a ministry position for me there! Everyone I met was wonderful and the staff are so loving. The night before I left after sharing the story of how the Lord Jesus Christ set me free, we prayed for each other and then shared how the joy of the Lord is our strength - HALLELUJAH!

A foggy day at the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California
WE WALK BY FAITH, NOT BY SIGHT (2 Cor 5:7)
This morning is is quite foggy outside and I am reminded of another foggy day when I lived just north of San Francisco several years ago. My drive to work in the fog on winding roads through the country was a bit challenging, however, it was then that the Lord spoke to my heart saying: "Even though it is foggy and you can not see very well at all, the sun is still shining brightly up in the sky above the fog. And so it is, in your journey in life when the path is difficult and not clear, remember that I am always with you and just a whisper away." May your foggy days days be filled with joy as you put your trust in God who promises to never leave you nor forsake you! His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, says, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (John 14:6) Follow Him!

WHAT ARE YOU SEEKING?
The other morning as I looked out my bedroom window, I stood mesmerized as I watched hundreds of birds fly overhead. God speaks to us through the wonder of nature when we take the time to "listen" and this is what He reminded me: "Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to mor…

I HAVE SINNED
These are strong words, but when we are honest with God, there is forgiveness and freedom through the shed blood of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ!

Exodus 10:16 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste; and he said, I have sinned against the LORD your God, and against you.

Numbers 22:34 And Balaam said unto the angel of the LORD, I have sinned; for I knew not that thou stoodest in the way against me: now therefore, if it displease thee, I will get me back again.

Joshua 7:20 And Achan answered Joshua, and said, Indeed I have sinned against the LORD God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done.

1 Samuel 15:24 And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the LORD, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.

2 Samuel 12:13 And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the LORD. And Nathan said unto David, The LORD also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die.

2 Samuel 24:10 And David's heart smote him…

A WHISTLEBLOWER'S ACCOUNT
For years many parents and teachers have known that there was something wrong in the schools but often couldn't put a finger on it. Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt, former Senior Policy Advisor in the U.S. Department of Education, blew the whistle in the `80s on government activities withheld from the public and her book, "The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America" exposes the lies and reveals the truth of our current education system.
