A Few Quick Random Things
Hey, short post today, gotta lot to do this morning and some errands to run. Besides, I over slept a bit, which is actually a good thing.
Some new reviews have been posted about The Hunted. You can find one at The Christian Manifesto and another over at Novel Reviews. On the Novel Reviews site you have to scroll down a bit until you see my mug looking at you. So far, reviews have been good and positive!
Something exciting that’s coming up: on Wednesday, the 25th, WJTL, a Christian radio station here in southcentral PA, will be giving away copies of The Hunted during the 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. hours.
I’m feeling a little better this morning, the nausea is waning on its own and hopefully I can start using a couple ice cubes in my beverage of choice now. Lukewarm fluid just doesn’t quench the thirst.
Now, a verse to leave you with. I stumbled upon this one this morning and it warmed my heart. This is what the Lord, God says, I myself will search for my sheep and take care of them. That’s found in Ezekiel 34:11. Remind you of anything Jesus said? He’s the good shepherd and searches relentlessly for His lost sheep, combing the hillside, braving thickets and cliffs and darkened forests. Battling wolves. He searches and searches until He finds that one lost sheep He’s looking for, then He takes care of him, treats him like he’s the only sheep in the fold.
And what I love about that Ezekiel verse is that God, the Creator of the universe, Master of everything, all-Sovereign One, all-Powerful One . . . GOD, says that He Himself searches and cares for us. He doesn’t send out an employee or a servant or a friend. He does the dirty work Himself. He does the tender work Himself. It’s all of Him.
That’s what warms my heart. Knowing that in this valley I’m traversing, God doesn’t send a surrogate to see me through it, no, He’s caring for my personally, He’s holding my hand, He’s carrying me.
That’s a personal God.
Okay, so maybe this post wasn’t so quick and short. I got carried away.
