Telling myself what I have told you…

Well, just in case you get the false impression from these blogs that I sail through difficulties with great spiritual strength, today, largely through sleeplessness and medication,  I cannot focus on either praying or reading the Bible. When I read the Bible I cannot hold on to what I have read. When  I pray I lose concentration and  find out I am not praying at all. However there are truths that I have  hidden in my heart over the years and they are enough. Today it is truths from old fashioned hymns that are strengthening me: Here is a verse that keeps on coming to mind:

“We have an anchor that keeps the soul
Steadfast and sure while the billows roll,
Fastened to the Rock which cannot move
Grounded firm and deep in the Saviour’s love.”

That is what I am focussing on today. I am remembering  for myself  what I said to you in a blog a while back: “Little is much when God is in it.” I found Him today in that simple hymn and in a gentle walk with a friend and their dog.

Don’t be like a Pharisee or a Teacher of the Law and lay burdens on your back that are hard to bear. Expect God’s help to come to you in beautiful, simple ways. That is really all I can share today and perhaps all I need to share.

    At times you get the impression you, and only you, can’t get to grips with reading your Bible for that day!

    The main conversation I had with God today was basically WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO PRAY ABOUT AT THIS TIME?

    I am still waiting for an answer!

    Maybe, it’s a case of George (Kenny), or whoever, “I have enough able people in the world who will pray in accordance with my desires at this time. I know that you love me. I also know that you know that I Love You! I am quite content with that for today! Rest in that certainty and truth! I will stir you toward prayer in the way that I choose, and you will know that it is definitely ME that is stirring you!”

    Dear Kenny. I love the way you still blog when you feel weak. Thank you Lord for the secret of the vessels made of clay. Today was a day when I saw how clay like I am, but through it all He shines ….

    That is a good lesson for us “oldies”to learn . We need to be able to hold on to Him on good days and bad.
