When my Singapore friends want to let each other know that they are busy they just say, "BLUR". (They will also add, "LAH" to the end of the sentence. LAH is an exclamation not really a word.)
Well, let me say, BLUR!" Today we had planned to leave home at noon to drive to Pittsburgh to see Tim and family. We left home at 3:30 but had to go one more time to the bank to make deposit.
We landed in Dresden, Ohio, a 1500 population town East of Columbus that is home to the "World's Largest Basket". We are enjoying a day at the Miller's B&B, called, "Sarah's House".
It is a nice and inexpensive place to stay. I will report more on my conversations later.
I am very happy to report that the baby of our friends who appeared to have a serious neurological issue seems to now be free from such a thing. PTL! Thank you Great Physician!
God still calls us, saves us and heals us. The Bible teaches "The uniformity of natural causes in an open system where God can and does break in to rearrange the natural causes." Atheists believe in the first part "The uniformity of natural causes" but deny the last part "in an open system where God can and does break in to change the natural causes".
As a Bible believing Christian I hold firmly to the entire proposition. Many modern Christians sound more like agnostics or atheists than believers for they accept a truncated view of scripture.
We have great Professional Clinics with Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Social Workers and Counselors. It is called, Life Way Counseling Centers. Our therapists are caring, well trained in counseling and psychotherapy and our physicians give prescriptions for good medicines. These are the results of researchers who have discovered "The uniformity of natural causes." I thank God for His good gifts that come from education, research and study.
However, we all add another invisible ingredient. Faith, hope, love and prayer. We have a high view of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. We believe that God hears and answers prayers. We believe that Baby Daniel is better because we prayed. We believe that our clients benefit from our prayers.
When a few of us started Life Way back in 1989 we were accosted by agnostics who decried our faith in God. We were accosted by many Christians because we also used research from medicine and psychology. Some believers wanted us to abandon our heads and many therapists wanted us to abandon our souls. We refused to do either.
What about you? Are you unwilling to abandon either your head or your heart? God gave us both. Live free to think and feel and believe in God.
