Luke 9:62 (KJV)
62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
I AWOKE (PRAISE THE LORD FOR AWAKENING AGAIN!!!!) EARLY this morning, (partly because Ms. Amanda demanded I awake EARLY), with the above FAVORITE Scriptures posted above!!!
Simply put, NOBODY can plow a straight furrow unless their eyes are FIXED on the south end of a north bound mule!!!!
How is that for a straight talking southerner!!??
Did not the mighty Apostle Paul declare:
Philippians 3:14 (KJV)
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
PS.-The KEY Word here being "TOWARD!!!"
I AROSE, (SEE ABOVE COMMENT CONCERNING ARISING!), and immediately Googled:
This list includes a man named NICHOLAS JAMES:
Nicholas James is an Australian motivational speaker born with a rare condition called the Phocomelia which is the absence of limbs; both hands and legs since birth. Ever since he was a child, he was the object of bullying at school and was demotivated. He however came to terms with the fact and started functioning independently. Despite all this, he graduated in Commerce with specialization in financial planning. Today he is a world renowned motivational speaker who aims at instilling hope in people helping them to fight their oddities. In 1990 he won the Australian Young Citizen award and he continues to inspire people throughout the globe. He is definitely one of the successful people with disabilities of our times.
How well do I remember walking by the small TV in my living room-many years ago- and hearing a man speaking UN-intelligently sounding words!!??
It was almost as if the speaker/preacher was speaking in "UNKOWN TONGUES!!!"
My curiosity drove me to take a seat and listen intently.
Sure enough, after a few minutes I began to decipher his speech and learned that he was born with a CRIPPLING disease that denied him the ABILITY to speak clearly, BUT:...
HE WAS DETERMINED TO PREACH THE GOSPEL ANYWAY!!!
As God would have it, I read Pastor Bill's DAILY DEVOTIONAL:
In his post contained the TRUE story of a well established and equipped CHRISTIAN high school football team that played a sparsely manned team from the local juvenile detention center:
PLEASE take the time and effort to read all my links today-YOU WILL BE INSPIRED.
Last, but not the least of my links, came from a dear friend and brother even farther south than me:
This one is sure to bring tears to your eyes!!!
I just returned to my seat from ANOTHER futile attempt to relieve Amanda's suffering.
How well do I recall my dear friend and YOUNG LION FOR JESUS, Matthew K., describing how he sometimes feels like:
He is asking/demanding a blind man to see!!??"
Did not the Apostle Paul declare:
Philippians 4:13 (KJV)
13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Mama taught me years ago:
WHERE THERE IS A WILL, THERE IS A WAY!!!!"
Today, "YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHICH STRENGTHENETH YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Or, as we say down here:
GOD BLESS YOU!!
