Our Pastor, Ebb Fox, talked to us about Acts 27 where a very real and present danger was being lived out on a ship with a bunch of non-believers and one confirmed believer. God was in that storm, on that doomed ship with a prisoner, the Apostle Paul.
As it turned out, because God had a plan for Paul, everyone else on that ship got a life insurance policy, an umbrella policy as a matter of fact. All was lost but not one life. After such an event some of those lives were likely saved beyond physically but also spiritually by gaining understanding of true salvation. If an unbeliever keeps company with a believer who is walking in obedience with God, the truth may protect them too, no matter how messy and doomed that life appears, for a while.
I pray for the believers to always be a light for non-believers, especially in all these ugly hate filled storms around us right now. I pray that if there is a non believer that needs to know God’s truth they don’t get out from under the umbrella God has provided for the believer without acknowledgement of His saving grace.
America was built by God’s people who were on a mission. If that gets torn down the mission is gone and what we are left with works out fine for the believer in the end but sadly not for those who have no faith. God hasn’t blown the final horn. Are you holding the umbrella or just standing under it?
I believe in the God of the Bible and that Jesus is His Son who died on the cross at Calvary for the sins of the world. This free gift is for you and for me, if we accept that fact by faith and strive daily to follow His Living Word that is the same today, yesterday, and forever.
Also, for the record, I love my boyfriend whom I have been married to for going on 18 years. We have two boys that are both in high school, which is taught at home by yours truly.
Cats, dogs, chickens, ducks, goats, turkeys, squirrels, chipmunks, peacocks, song birds, coyotes, raccoons, opossums, all call our yard home and I have a story about all of them.
I am originally from Kentucky, with deep roots in Eastern Kentucky's Appalachian Mountains. I grew up in a working class suburb of Lexington, Kentucky. I am married to a quiet feller from Birmingham, Alabama. We met in Tampa, FL, married, had two kids and moved to California. From there we landed in Alabama for a few years and then by the providence of God we moved to our little piece of heaven in Georgia where we live in a white house, on a little hill, in the rocky foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
I have some things I think I might want to write that maybe someone might want to read... mostly stories and experiences of my own and a few I can relay from second hand knowledge but none with great confidence, pride, or true story telling ability, just overthought ramblings that I quickly need to capture before I forget.
