Those of you who know me know I’ve had many changes in my life . . . lots of them. Retirement, work, health, ministry. It’s not enough for me, the true choleric that I am, to take on one mission – NOOOOO, I have to take them all on.
Several years back I took a public stand on pro-life, which I continue to defend and support. Defending life is natural to me, but one that is hotly debated and extremely controversial, so I often feel like a salmon swimming upstream. I guess I’m showing my human weakness when I feel alone and isolated. I realize that the more public I become, the more attacks will occur. That’s where you, my friends and followers, come in.
The publicity phase of our soon-to-be-released book, Go Tell It! (http://gotellit.today) will start soon. The next few months will be a critical time of travel, interviews, book signings, and reviews. I am asking for your prayers and words of encouragement. Attacks are certain and seem to come from the unlikeliest of places. Why is it that people always hurry to tell you when your best isn’t good enough? I’m grateful that God doesn’t do that.
Psalm 23, The Psalm of David
The Lord is my shepherd,
I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters.
He restores my soul;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You have anointed my head with oil;
My cup overflows.
Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
