I wonder if the Lord has a lottery everytime I ask him for the title for a new blog! Now I picture myself the captain of a big ship crossing the deep seas, keeping an eye for reefs, rocks and trouble. Then the Lord pick the back-ground, all the volumes and giant captains who have written books and books on chistianity and inspiration. Then my ship looks like raft made of poles stranded together...And then the Lord picks the horizon how I depend on him to help me put everything together I feel on a life raft or handing on to piece of wood that happens to float on water...!
Many of us have to renew our membership in this site to continue blogging. I picture that crossing the straight of Magelan at the souther tip of south america! We know it's no trouble, but it has to be done to continue to surf the open seas of blogging! You prayers on this on this matter please! We open our subject in the worky seas of Ephesus. Revelations 2:1-4,
["...1Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
2I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
3And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
4Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love...]
Perhaps I would begin to boast of all the seas and oceans I traveled in the word. And the sharks and whales I took on and defeated! And how great a navigator I am in directing my ship, the gift of the Lord! But do I really have like the first appreciation for the voyage, like the first maiden voyage of this great ship the Lord has pictorially put me on? Have I forgotten the delighted smile I had when I received my first captains' hat and navigating orders? Is my ship just a boat and not navigating machine of great might and glorious capacity to proclaim the the truth and take it foreign ports in far, far forsaken places on this ship can come to...?
Easy as she goes! as we weather the storms and troubles! the Lord is at the helm! and he we guide us through the deep waters! to designated port of call- his glorious Kingdom...!
