I can't figure out on the new design how to add more blogs.

Thanks for your comments, Dixie. Debriding is hard stuff to read about, I know, yet it is something each of us must experience in ways uniquely designed by Him to enable us to go forward in fulness of life and joy. Of course it’s spiritual debriding . . . the debriding of the heart that really matters. What I am coming to realize is that our perspective is so much more limited than His that self-diagnosis becomes nearly impossible. What we might consider an awful burden may be just the thing He has designed to draw us closer to Himself. I was struck by your writing that a scar is always left behind as a reminder of His cleansing work. That led me to consider that scars and rainbows could fall into the same category . . . evidences and reminders of His cleaning work. And because we have gone through that cleansing, we can know that we have become His. Sometimes the journey isn’t as fun as we would like, but the results are eternal rewards we cannot begin even to imagine. Be blessed, Dave

John, you cannot know what an encouragement it was to receive your comment a few minutes ago. I’m sitting at my desk at 4:30 in the morning seeking to hear from the Lord regarding these writings, and in comes His encouragement through your keyboard. Thank you. John, there is a spot on my website where I have listed words of appreciation from folks who have read the devotionals. I wonder if you would permit me to publish your comments on the site? I would want to identify you with your first name and city/state, and would also very much appreciate having a photo I could add, either now or later. How would you feel about all this? I think it would help the site to be more friendly and inviting. Thanks again for reading, but even more for taking the time to write. Be blessed today, Dave

Hi Sue! Thanks for asking. I'm not a minister in the sense of a trained leader of a tribe of people, but I am very committed to my local church...a spirit-filled Southern Baptist Church here in Woodland Park, CO. I met the Lord in grade school in a conservative central Kansas Methodist church and now, at age 61, find myself celebrating and honoring the various expressions of the body of Christ. It seems He uses many venues to bring people to Himself. I am actively involved in a weekly home fellowship, and love to praise and worship Him, whether in a group setting or alone.

I apologize to all readers for garbling the first sentence of today's devotional beginning at the "Observation". Here's how it should have read: "Jesus, teaching in the Jerusalem temple, was greeted by people who marveled that such wisdom and authority could come from one with no theological education."
