Share Your World 1-28-19

It is time to SHARE MY WORLD!

This is the challenge where our hostess, Melanie, asks some questions, and in answering them, we her contributors SHARE OUR WORLDS.

Melanie’s questions and my answers are below. When you have finished reading here, click the underlined link above and check out how Melanie’s other contributors answers the questions.

  1. Are you thin or thick skinned?   Are you easily offended or tend to let it just roll off your back like a duck does with water?                                                                                                                                                                                                                      My job as a pastor requires a thick skin. Living as a minister is a little like living in a fish bowl. People are always observing and commenting on what they observe and many times they are not very careful to consider the weight of their words. It just goes with the territory.
  2. How important are morals in a healthy society? What are the most important morals for citizens to have?  (Credit to Rory for this question)                                                                                                                                                                                          OK I could go a lot of places with this but I will let David speak for me this morning from Psalm 11-

    “When the foundations are being destroyed,what can the righteous do?”

    Shared morals are the bedrock of any society. When they shift or simply go away then the culture is sent into chaos.                                                                                             I would say the morals that are most important are the morals that line up with the one kingdom that is going to last forever. When all other kingdoms fail the Kingdom of God will go on. It is that society’s morals we should seek to emulate. OK I know that was a controversial answer, but now you definitely know a little bit more about my world.

  3. What will your epitaph be?

“He definitely believed!”

     4. (I don’t admire either/or questions much, which is why you won’t see ‘em often.  Today is an exception)  French toast, pancakes or waffles?

Pancakes! Thank you!

What were you grateful for this past week?

I am so grateful I got to visit with my daughters and my grand daughter. Thank you Amanda for taking me along for the ride!

Morning Direction From Scripture 1-30-19

img_20180109_160453_4201297249556.jpg

It is you alone who are to be feared.
    Who can stand before you when you are angry?
From heaven you pronounced judgment,
    and the land feared and was quiet—
when you, God, rose up to judge,
    to save all the afflicted of the land.
10 Surely your wrath against mankind brings you praise,
    and the survivors of your wrath are restrained.[c]

11 Make vows to the Lord your God and fulfill them;
    let all the neighboring lands
    bring gifts to the One to be feared.
12 He breaks the spirit of rulers;
    he is feared by the kings of the earth. Psalm 76:7-12

What commitments have you made to God that you still need to fulfill?

Just a Two-Numb-Fingered Musician

At our last C.cada artists gathering the group project was simple poetry. I wrote several poems and here is one from the “I Am Genre”

Just a Two- Numb- Fingered Musician

I am  just a two-numb-fingered musician.

I wonder what I am going to play next.

I hear the sound of shofars.

I see vultures in Har Megiddo.

I want to see the Rider Whose Eyes Blaze Like Fire astride his whitened steed.

I am  just a two-numb-fingered musician.

I pretend to be a superhero.

I feel brave enough to defeat the Dread Dormamu.

I touch the Time Stone.

I worry that I will miss the bigger picture.

I cry when I hear the song, Hiding Place, especially that second verse.

I am just a two-numb-fingered musician.

I understand Jesus is Lord.

I say, “He’s my Savior!”

I dream visions of the future with background music.

I try to worship through them.

I hope my song tells people of the bigger picture.

I am just a two-numb-fingered musician.
