Tim & Patty were delayed more than 12 hours flying back from Tulsa due to State Department world wide alert & he has surgery Tuesday at noon.
I suppose I sound as though I am begging but we have not had any requests to speak in Feb/Mar except on the 4 Sunday mornings. If you want us to share then Sunday Feb 14th pm; and every Wednesday & Sunday evening through March 6th is open. March 6th we will be driving from Fayetteville, Ar back to Lake Charles after Sunday morning services.
I love to read biographies but I was thinking if I would ever want to book written or a movie made about me. There are so many things that I would not want the world to know about me. I want to be loved but I am not so sure I want to be known. If a movie covered EVERY aspect of my life there would be much embarassment for there are things I want to hide. I certainly would not want everything I have thought, said and done to be known by other people.
Do you remember what happened to Adam and Eve? They wanted to hide. Guess what? I also have things to hide. We all wear masks. We have a family mask, a job mask, an after job mask, a religious mask and other masks behind which we do not want people to gaze upon.
But according to Psalm 139 God sees the ‘real’ me. I can not hide from God just as Adam could not hide from God thousands of years ago. He sees my heart which is hidden from you by the mask I wear on that particular day you and I are face-to-face.
I smile and say to you that I am ok when the ruth is I am not ok. I even quote scriptures to others to help them when deep inside of me I am wondering why those scriptures do not seem to be working in my own life. (That is where faith comes in).
But i do know I am loved of God even on my worst days. His unbelievable love for me as His child causes Him to call out “Mike, where are you?” He knows where I am but He is getting me to look inside my heart in order for me to know where I am. He wants to teach me.
I must remove my mask and see what He sees!
