Countless hours working on the manuscript today, The Book of James. Sent Jim and Debby the 19th edition I’d had laying around last week. Currently on the 24th, getting ready for the 25th. What a Godsend times at least three. Pastor Troy from Arcadia and Miss Lucy from somewhere (I forget lol) offered to help me check the theological accuracy of my devotionals. Only Jesus could have sent these dear friends into my life. God is able. Genesis 22.14b, YHWH: ‘The Lord Shall Provide.’ Amen and amen. God said it, I believe it, that settles it. Get it? It doesn’t matter if we believe it. Because God said it, that is what’s up; that settles it. Eager to go to Subway (my office lol) in the morning where I spend countless hours. Usually dressed in a collared shirt; it’s funny. I guess people think I’m the boss. Right, the boss of nothing. Anyway, the latest edition of the manuscript about 95,000 words. That is excluding the filmed interviews we’ll be doing with the family, James’ wife, and several in the community. And probably to golf more with Jim. He’s still impressed how One-handed man gives him a run for his money on the course. Pray for them. October was a rough month. James’ birthday, also the anniversary of his passing. Will end with Lucy’s favorite Scripture, Jeremiah 29.11: ‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.’ So God knows what’s up, that’s His omniscience and omnipotence. He has an ultimate and perfect will for our lives. The burden is on us to follow Him daily and moment by moment. Isn’t that cool? God is watching and has a perfect plan for our lives. Trust Him. He will accomplish it. This entails our prayer life which is a subject for another day, actually in my devotional. He has the best life possible drawn up for us. Simply amazing. Thank You, Lord.
