It's been too long since...

It's been too long since I've ridden my bike, three weeks to be exact. I'm ready to do some hardcore bike riding. Take that side. listen

In the style of Proverbs

There are three things that annoy me, four items that are the bane of my existence:

Toenails (they always grow!)
Electric appliances that have lights that show that they are "off" (if it is off, it is off - don't give me a little read light to show me it is on "stand-by" or plugged in)
Dust jackets on hard covered books (Books look more scholarly with out them)

What are my doing to...

What are my doing to myself? I just found the cup cake shop in Raleigh, and now my wife is proudly gonna make me take her there every week at least once a week to buy her cup cake. Death to me and my waste lines." Forget flowers, I want cup cakes". That as my wife screamed. listen

Has your child walked away from Jesus?

If so, you are in good company with many. I recently saw this post by Steve Wright, student minister at Providence Baptist Church here in Raleigh. He writes the following:

Recently I sent an article to the parents in our ministry. I had an overwhelming response as many parents were encouraged and given hope. Just the thought that John Piper had a child that rebelled lifted a ton of guilt for many of our parents.

I often share with parents I meet with that God placed Adam and Eve in an incredibly “safe” environment. The problem they faced was more of a matter of the heart than it was external influences.

We are also encouraged with great news concerning a prodigal in Luke 15. An often overlooked detail of this story was that when the son demanded “his portion” of his inheritance that his father “wrote the check”. Even though he knew his son would more than likely blow it all (which he did) it would be worth it if his son found Christ.

Here is an encouraging article if you have a prodigal.
If it can happen to John Piper, it can happen to any one. Everything rests with God. Everyone stands on their own. A Christian's job is to point to Christ and not save people.

Persistence pays off....

Persistence pays off. In February, my wife went to the emergency room. While we were billed for it in May, we were billed for it in April, and we paid for it in April but didn't get credit(?) the bill. That for a couple of months of wrangling(?), they finally giving us our money back. Hooray God for hooking us up and getting us our money back. listen
