Guarding Hearts

June 7, 2013

For years I taught adult Bible-study classes in a local church and took great pains to consider Scripture carefully before answering questions during the lessons. Later, during a lecture in my first semester of seminary at age 40, I learned that I’d given a woman who had attended one of my classes a terrible answer to her heartfelt question. I was certain my response had been causing her distress over the 2 years since I had seen her, and I was eager to correct myself for her sake.

Racing home, I called her and instantly burst into an apology. A long pause was followed by her saying in a puzzled tone: “I’m sorry, but I’m having trouble placing you right now.” I was neither as memorable nor as damaging as I had believed! It was then I realized God is at work guarding His truth even as we grow in our understanding of His Word. I’m thankful He protected this woman’s heart.

We are human and will make mistakes sometimes as we share God’s Word with others. But we have an obligation to diligently seek His truth and exercise care when we talk about it (2 Tim. 2:15). Then we may boldly proclaim Him, praying that His Spirit will guard not only our hearts but also the hearts of those we seek to serve. God and His Word are deserving of the greatest care.

The words I spoke but yesterday
Are changed as I read Your Word;
I see more clearly Your perfect way,
And my heart is deeply stirred. —Kilgore
Let God’s Word fill your memory, rule your heart, and guide your words.

Read: 2 Timothy 2:10-18

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth. —2 Timothy 2:15
Bible in a Year:
2 Chronicles 28-29; John 17

Good evening, Kathy...((HUGS))...I will, this is just the District Committe Meeting.

Do have lots of copies of plans for the boys to build things out of wood or things to carve out of wood to pass out tonight.

P.S. Woo - Hoo, I’m a little closer to finally selling my Mom & Dad’s house (Title Company paperwork).

My favorite things are not on the list.

Harleys and Gibsons
There aren’t any finer
Any Guitar that is not made in China
Antique Airplanes with dope-fabric wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Playing the drums in my tiny apartment
Spending some time in the skin-care department
Out at the range with those naughty gun-things
These are a few of my favorite things!

On Free Republic posting a big graphic
Doing a wheelie in Rush Hour Traffic
playing my bass and just slappin’ those strings
These are a few of my favorite things!

When Obama goes on TV
And I want to BARF
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I just have to...LAUGH!

We are in the “Cone” of TS Andrea and have had days and days of rain. The air is so thick and heavy that it feels like the area below sea level around the Dead Sea (I Know I have been there).

The smell of rotting vegetation is in the are, and there is a steamy, jungly miasma.

The rain is actually HOT. i kid you not.
Hot, bath-water rain.

Hurricane season starts this week.

I don’t mind the heat but the humididy is not good.

Both of the bathrooms have no windows and are in the center of the building, so we have a choice.

Of course, I’m on the 2nd floor, so if the roof blows off, the whole idea of a “safe place’ is irrelevant.

But, the building has survived Andrew, so i’m not worried.

Hi Kathy. Sports? It’s almost “you name it.” Indy car & Formula 1 racing, Chicago Cubs baseball although Cincy is closer & we go there too. Cowboys & Colts football. Both boys love NHL hockey, one likes the Blackhawks, the other likes the Penguins. And if that isn’t a civil war, I went to Indiana University, but my boys went to Purdue.

Mrs. Henkster is a saint for putting up with it.

Good evening, Kathy!

*HUGS*

You caught me just in the nick of time! I will max out tomorrow at about noon. This has been a real stand - ten days thus far - 112 hours. There was a project in early 2007 where I racked up 116 hours in one week - 76 hours of overtime - by the time that was over I was seeing centipedes and snakes!

The word tonight was that it will end tomorrow, but, like everything else, that could change.

Now I really have to go to bed - need to get out the door by 6:00 this morning!
