Why would you ever complain, O Jacob,
or, whine, Israel, saying,
"God has lost track of me.
He doesn't care what happens to me"?
Don't you know anything? Haven't you been listening?
God doesn't come and go. God lasts.
He's Creator of all you can see or imagine.
He doesn't get tired out, doesn't pause to catch his breath.
And he knows everything, inside and out.
He energizes those who get tired,
gives fresh strength to dropouts.
For even young people tire and drop out,
young folk in their prime stumble and fall.
But those who wait upon God get fresh strength.
They spread their wings and soar like eagles,
They run and don't get tired,
they walk and don't lag behind.
(Isaiah 40:27-31 - The Message)

WAIT ON THE LORD
Hey, bloggers...thanks for all the feedback here and on Facebook from Sunday...and thanks for all the calls, texts and e-mail (btw, at the time of this posting there is some issue going on with the church mail...don't know what it is, but I know they're working on it)...I haven't responded individually to any of your messages, but I've read them all...sorry the streamers are so upset about recent changes, but, in all honesty, the issue at hand is much larger than just that one area...please allow me to get my thoughts together and process all that is happening in my life and ministry right now...as soon as I can, I'll write and post something that will address all your concerns and suggestions...in the meantime, know that I love and appreciate you all (thanks to those of you who have bought The Gospels In The Now...hope you're enjoying it)...
