A hundred years may seem like a long time to us, but to the Lord, it's merely a dramatic pause. The Lord had told Abram what was coming long ...

    Because he has set his love on me, therefore I will deliver him. I will set him on high, because he has known my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble.

    For I, Yahweh your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, Don't be afraid; I will help you. Isaiah 41:13 WEB.We have a proverb we live by when performing live music: "If you hit a bad note, hit it good." Yes, it should be "hit it well," but that's the phrase I grew up hearing in South Caroli...

Assembly Required

  • He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. Eccl. 3:11 ESV

    I grew up on a farm in the country, but always had a passion for computers. I never actually owned one as we were pretty poor at the time. I prayed a lot for a computer of my own, but did not actually get a computer in the way that others did. Instead, I started 'attracting' computer parts, and even in the country, somehow they found their way to me. A motherboard, some memory, a hard disk, finally a power supply from someone at church.

    Eventually I had almost all the parts, but I had no case to put it in. So I grabbed a cardboard box, cut some holes in it, and built my first computer. An Intel 8086 clocked at 5 mhz. It was quite a sight and one of the slowest ever made, but it was perfect! It shaped my future, and I still use those skills each day. God did give me a computer, but assembly was required.

    Looking back, there are so many times in my life that if I had gotten what I prayed for, it would have detrimental to my growth. God knows the end from the beginning, and He knows what is best for you. Relax and trust His timing. Sometimes assembly is required for your growth.

    Prayer: Father, please give me the things that I need to grow and a fresh vision for the plan that you have for me, in the name of Jesus.

    Note: "And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord's people" (Ephesians 6:18).

Father, I come to you and ask that you help me with my walk in life and what I need to grow stronger to do what I have to. I've come a long way not once got mad at You. I know there is a reason why this happen in the end i'll know why until then I will keep going. Reading this today it might just be that others will learn to grow watching how long I've been fighting this battle. I'll be keeping my eyes open trying to see others grow in their battles what they do to help them selves. I Love You, Father and Thank You!
