Monday's Thought

This thought comes from 1 Corinthians 9: 16, 22, and 27

My heart needs a change. Father, give me the heart of Paul - that I would be COMPELLED to share You with others. Not because I HAVE to, but because it is my nature to do so, and that it wouldn't even dawn on me to do anything else. Missionary Dick Flores said, "The wishbone will never replace the backbone." Oh, how true. I can WANT to do this all day long, but wishing and doing are two very different things. Let me become who I need to be to reach each person You have planned for me to reach. And always keep me close to You so that I may never become unfit for the destiny You have for me.

Ruth, Good to hear from you!!! No, I do not know anything about Lyndy. She had quit commenting on my blog some time ago. I know she seemed to be struggling with a lot. I pray she is doing well and staying close to Jesus.

Hey Ruth! I'm with Susan - I've thought about Lyndy recently as well, but no- I haven't heard anything about her. Like Susan said, I know she was struggling with her mother and with some illness a while back and she stopped posting. We'll keep praying!

Hope you are doing great!!
