We carried it proudly all the way back to one of their houses and proceeded to patch the hole with a piece of plywood and tar. One of the boys found a canoe paddle in the weeds and we three got into the boat and started to paddle out.
It was then that we knew that we made a stupid mistake.            The river was swift and it was taking us downstream very fast.
We feverishly paddled with that one oar and bailed out the water with our hands and an old can. Barely we made it to shore and got out just before the boat sank below the water and headed downstream. Wet, cold and shaking the three of us headed home knowing we would never tell our parents of this stupid adventure.
They will be made holy, useful to the Master, ready to do any good work.            God made us all for a purpose. But God used him to gather and lead his people out of Pharaoh’s slavery and split the Red Sea in two.  Joseph was sold into slavery by his brothers and was cast into prison but became the second most powerful person inEgypt. Or, maybe just maybe a smile or a kind word from you to a stranger may just prevent them from going home and ending their own life and their grandson will some day save the world.


He will bring to light things that are now hidden in darkness, and will make known the secret purposes of people's hearts.
We cannot command the Lord to do anything whether we do it in pleading, tears, anger, or desperation.
If God has the will, He may answer our prayers about life but nothing says that He absolutely has to. All we have is the hope that he will hear us, see what we are going through, and grant us a little drop of His mercy in this life.
He will cure a cancer, heal the deaf, grow an arm back or bring someone back to life but that does not mean He will do it all the time. He has given us guidance through His word (the Bible) and occasionally gives us a nudge or lesson to learn from but basically kicks us out of the nest like the mother bird does to face the challenges of life. Each day has enough trouble of its own.            I know that this message will, most likely, get frowns and dismisses from Pastors around the world but it is real. Their job is to preach the message to inspire, encourage, and give hope to their congregations. He wants us to spread the Gospel and not make up stories of what He has done for us personally in life.


Just show others how you believe in His salvation and forgiveness and tell them of His Word.
So accept His Son as your Lord and claim the only real promise that He made to us --- Forgiveness and Salvation.
You can see it for a short time, but then it goes away.            So the next time a Pastor, friend, relative or acquaintance tells you, “Its all in God’s timing, it wasn’t meant to be, the Lord has bigger or better plans for you.” Tell them, “Nonsense! Meanwhile, let us travel down this road of life and try our best to tackle what life throws at us and wait for the eternal reward when we get to the end of the journey.
For a good Christian Patriotic song, go to my Song Pageand listen to a newer song by Matt Maher called “Woke Up In America”.=======================================================  ***    If you have been watching the news lately and listening to the Chick-fil-A articles, let me say this about that -------- whether you feel like the President of that company or you disagree ---- he was just exercising his right to free speech. That right is one of the many we Americans have that has helped to make this country different in the world arena.
However, if you would like to see my opinion on the subject of homosexuality, see Pastor’s sermon Volume 2, #2.
