IT’S BEEN LIKE A FOG
It’s been neigh a month since last I wrote and it’s been like a fog rolled in with the many events that took place in September 2011. My last writing was Thanksgiving for Answered Prayer. I am still thankful and praise God for His mercy, kindness and goodness.
September started with a bang with my mother’s baby brother Jesse Hugh Lee dying unexpectedly on Labor Day morning. We were blessed by him for 73 years and miss him greatly. It was good to be able to attend his home going celebration and see some cousins I haven’t seen in decades.
In the meantime my son was back in the hospital again for eight days and continues to struggle with his health. My wife’s aunt Louise Rominger died during this time and will be greatly missed too.
And then my daughter, wife and I took a planned vacation in which we enjoyed plenty of rain and some sunshine on the beach. We were blessed with some good times and had a safe journey.
Today as I arise it is real foggy outside and it reminds me of this month. Whether foggy, rainy, sunny, or dark outside Jesus still shines within my heart and gives me warmth for the day. I honestly don’t know how anyone makes it without my Lord.
It makes me want to cry out scriptures to the world such as Joel 2:1 “Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand;”
Joel was describing the effects of the locust plague but he implied this was only the forerunner of an even greater crisis if the people didn’t turn from their sins. Today I cry out to our world to behold the Lamb of God and return unto him and receive his mercy and grace.
He is here right now and he wants to save you. Will you receive him today? Will you repent and be forgiven of your sins. Wow! If you will simply come unto him you’re life will be changed and the bible says the angels in heaven will rejoice as you return to God.
Oh what a Savior, Oh Hallelujah! I feel His presence right now and can picture my little mother as she would cry out praises to God when she was blessed when someone was saved or when she was just receiving a blessing herself.
Thank you Jesus for today, thank you for your love, thank you for saving someone today and rescuing them from a devil’s hell.
“If we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1John 1:9
