Our church choir will be traveling to Faro and Portimao Portugal to sing for the Lord Jesus.

We will be there from Tuesday, April 23 to Tuesday, April 30.

Please pray for the hearts of those we will meet in Portugal and that we would be worthy ambassadors of Christ Jesus!

There will never be peace in the Middle East.

It started with Abraham, Ishmael and Isaac, and continues today. And will continue.

Some Palestinians want to drive Israel into the sea.

Some Israelis want the Land that was given to them by God.

Both want to exist in the same space. This sets up conflict, terror, death.

There will never be peace in the Middle East.

No, not until Messiah Jesus returns and sets up His Kingdom on Earth!

I figured out why I was in a major funk about a month ago.

I was trying to be God.

You see, my heart was heavy for reasons unknown. I wondered if I was affected by the death of the innocent 7 year old, Danielle van Dam (I was, but that wasn't the source of my deep funk). I wondered if it was work-related. I wondered if the remodeling at our house was causing it.

Nope, I was trying to play God.

I was trying to be the one who convicts people of their errant ways and to show them The Way, Jesus Christ. While I can show them The Way through my words and deeds, I cannot convict them; that is God's job (or, more specifically the job of the Holy Spirit).

So there I was, little mortal sinful me, trying to be God. I can emulate, follow, and honor Him, but, obviously, I can't be Him.

So, the huge funk was lifted off my weary shoulders as I threw the burden back on the Shoulders on which they should have been in the first place. Actually, the burden was on His shoulders the whole time, but I couldn't see it through my deep well of sorrow and hurt over those that do not have Christ Jesus in their hearts.

What about you? What burdens do you carry? I encourage you to throw them on the Saviour, Jesus, for His burden is easy and His yoke is light.

I'm always interested in other blogs that link to mine. I've found one that I really like: bloggedy blog.

Check out Andrew's writings on daily events. You'll be glad you did.

Dotson Memorial Baptist Church, Maryville TN

So, why would I call myself "Narrow-Minded Simpleton," a moniker that is usually launched with derision towards far-right Christian "lunatics" who quote the Bible all the time and think there's only one (simple) Way to Heaven?

If the shoe fits...
