Consolation From Above

The scripture reads, “The minute I said, "I'm slipping, I'm falling," your love, God, took hold and held me fast. Psalms 94:18 (Message Translation)”. But for me it could have read more like, “They gon make me lose my mind”, or “I’m about to go off up in here”. It’s just another day at the office, and another trick of the enemy, people with mouths going 75, and brains still in neutral. Sometimes the people that need your ministry the most, are the people that vex you the most. Once Job asked his well meaning friends, “How long will ye vex my soul, and break me in pieces with words?” The funny thing is the trigger seemed to be the inspiration I received from this post. Whatever the case, I learned a valuable lesson from Paul. When the messenger of Satan buffeted Paul, he resorted to prayer, and he received an answer. The answer wasn’t a promise to take away the annoyance, but a guarantee of abundant grace to see him through.

Right now, I thank God for his grace and an opportunity to vent.

Hi CareyCarey.

I was on your site the other day.
This is actually my second blog.
Nice to meet you, and your poem was nice. Sooooo you wearin' the Levi's or the Roca Wear today?

Well SLC, I actually wore a pair that had a little logo down on the cuff. I didn't know who's name it was and I really didn't want to know much stress *smile*. Thanks for stopping by.

Btw, I love listening to the word. I am old school and do not like a lot of entertainment with my words. I enjoy a little music but I love hearing the word if it's brought right.
