Whatcha Want Me To Do? Hold Your Hand? Well, yeah…

After all these years (since 1978) I’m still amazed I get to speak to teens around the country. As I type I’m in Rhinelander, Wi at Crescent Lake Bible Camp speaking for a junior high camp. Then I’ll stay here and speak for two weeks of family camp.

I’ve reached the point that it is mathematically possible that I could have a camper who is the grandchild of a former camper! Yikes.

Like you, the “current events” are not encouraging. Concentrating on the “news” can be deadly. We need to be aware of our day, but not overly focused on it…

Instead, at least for me and mine, we should  “fix our eyes on Jesus.”

Some would say that’s too simplistic.

Color me simple.

He is the only stability in my life. He is the only rock. He has blessed me with life,  a wonderful wife and family, precious friends, and allows me to serve Him as a home missionary.

He is good, all the time; and all the time, He is good.

And He sings to me a song by the Beatles…because, amazingly, He wants to hold my hand!

“For I, the LORD your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.” Isaiah 41.13
 
Maybe I’m not the only one who needs that reminder?
Speaking of reminders, let’s go back to 1964:

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for 30 plus years. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things.
