God is the strength of my life ... He makes a way for me in the wilderness ... He prepares a table for me in the presence of my enemies ... even tho' i walk through the valley of the shadow of death - even there He walks with me and comforts me ... there is no other Friend like Jesus ...

i know that "expect the unexpected" is a term used on some reality shows ... but that is also kind of how God operates too ... tho' He does warn us ahead of time, using examples of His work in the lives of others (the Bible) - yet when our "normal" goes out the window (to accomplish God's purposes) we get nervous, worried and fearful ... i like "normal" ... "safe, cozy" ... "predictable" ... perfectly good words in my world ... yet, i know i need my normal to be shaken - so that God can be made known ...
just something i was thinking about ... blessings on your November!

"The covenant of grace has no stipulations whatsoever. We, without any worthiness, may venture on the promise of God that was made to us in Christ Jesus, when He said, "He that believeth on Him is not condemned" (John 3:18). It is a blessing to know that the grace of God is free to us at all times, without preparation, without suitability, without money, and without price! "I will love them freely." These words invite backsliders to return indeed, the text was especially written for such– "I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely." Backslider, surely the generosity of the promise will at once break your heart, and you will return and seek your injured Father's face."
