More Tidbits from Charles Bridges’ Commentary

“Child of God! let the trembling of insufficiency in thyself be stayed by the recollection of all-sufficiency in thy God. What he demands of thee, that he works in thee. His covenant secures thy holiness, no less than thine acceptance – thine holiness, not, as some would have it, as the gound, but as the fruit, of thine acceptance. Let the one then be primarily sought; and the other will assuredly follow. “I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts…for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sins no more.’ (Jer. 31: 33, 34)'”

Learning Patience

It’s been said that if one prays for patience he/she better be ready to go through (or is it grow through?) some trying times. Back in the early days of my marriage, I prayed for patience….God gave me 5 children!! This past week we’ve been learning more about patience as we await the official final word of the Ford Fiesta Contest. A 100 winners will be chosen to be Fiesta Agents for 6 months, going on one monthly special secret assignment. The winners will get to use the Fiesta , free fuel and insurance, too! My husband submitted his video entry several days ago now and we expectantly await news. We naturally think his video was one of the best and he would be an asset to the team of Agents. My husband actually compared this week to being in labor and giving birth……….hmmm…………I don’t think he really knows what we womenfolk go through in our labors and deliveries. But, it’s a good analogy and I hope the birth is soon!

Could this be God’s provision for our auto needs til Fall?! We hope so!
