"O The Cross" -- Kim McLean

A modern-day hymn, "O The Cross", written and sung by my friend, Kim McLean, is inspiring as we have now entered that sacred season leading towards the remembrance of The Crucifixion of our Lord Jesus.

Jesus died for dUSt (... in the wind)

"Certainly everyone is like a #whisper in the wind." Psalm 39:11b GWT 

Jesus died for whispers in the wind. Yes, God so loved dust that He gave His only Son to save us from our everlasting extinction by offering us His eternal existence. 

Jesus died for dUSt. Yes, for Us.

Human Weaknesses

"Make allowances for the infirmities of the flesh (human weaknesses) which are purely physical. To be fatigued -- body and soul -- is not sin; to be in heaviness is not sin."
-- Cowman 

Read 2 Corinthians 12:9.

Children Matter

What joy to have lunch with school children today. It's impossible to fellowship with children and not sense Jesus in the mix. 

Jesus said, "Unless you become as little children, you won't enter the Kingdom." One way to become like them is to be present with them. Children matter. 

I was invited into their school so they could show their pastor appreciation, but they should know that I appreciate them as well.

Pray Now. Understand Later.

Praying is a very peculiar thing. While I would never deny prayer works -- it surely does -- I am still at a complete loss to understand how prayer works. 

Prayer is a real mystery. Yes, though I am indeed drawn to pray non-stop, yet grasping words to explain what prayer really means to me all fall short and are do not even close to rendering a true expression.

Prayer was even an overwhelming idea to the original disciples of Jesus. Once they said to Him: "Lord, Teach Us to Pray." Though they saw and heard Jesus pray many times, they still could not get their human minds around this holy phenomenon. 

When it comes to learning about prayer and knowing how to pray, I can only quote an old Englishman, Samuel Chadwick, who said: "We only learn to pray by praying."

Finally, as Vance Havner said: "I cannot comprehend prayer yet I must pray anyway. I don't understand electricity but I refuse to sit in the dark until I do. I just turn on the switch and bask in the light."

Let us pray now. Understanding will come later.

"Tho' Worn and Weary"

"Ofttimes the path grows dim & dreary;
The darkness hides the cheering ray.
Still I will trust, tho' worn and weary;
May Savior leads, He knows the way.
-- Unknown

My Jesus, not only do you know the way, You are The Way.
