"We Must Keep Going~Kids" ~



For those of you who may be new~ Miss Billie is a special friend of mine. Miss Billie just celebrated her 86th birthday. She still drives, goes to her personal trainer and loves to garden. I spend about three days a week helping and driving Miss Billie. She has three dogs and two cats that are her children. Life is getting harder for her~her body hurts and she is weary and worn but her mind is sharp. I hear her making this statement to her beloved pets~ "We must keep on going, kids."

We don't know what tomorrow may bring but we know who it is that brings tomorrow. I have a way of pulling tomorrow's clouds over today's joys.

Ours is to trust God~ (taken from the Baptist Bread)
Ours is to trust God if He decides to kill us. (Job13:15 with Heb. 11:6)
Often I limp like Jacob~ (Gen. 32:31)
cower like Gideon~ (Judges 6:11)
fear like Israel~  (Ex.14:10)
faint like David ~  Psalms 84:2
despair of life~ (11 Cor. 1:8-9)
hurt like Paul.~  (11 Cor. 12:7-10)

Yet ~I must go on like Elisha, the great prophet that performed over ten miracles~yet in the end he died of a physical sickness. (11kings 13:11)  Paul who had the gift of healing had to leave Trophimus at Miletum sick. ( 11 Timothy 4:20)

Even when we don't understand ~the Judge of this earth will do right. How do I know?

Genesis 18:25 (King James Version)


 25That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?

We must always fight the pride of thinking we have all the answers. True Bible scholars will often say~ "I don't know."  Filling in the gaps that God has inspired in the Word of God is dangerous business. We must keep following Jesus~ even when we don't have all the answers.

A stranger once traveled alone though the dangerous mountains. Coming to a fork in the path, he knew not which way to go. Two men were there, one dead and the other alive. Of whom would he inquire the right fork to take?  Friend, look in the right direction. Follow the Son of God when you understand and when you don't understand.

Sometimes we will fall down. But you know what is the best thing about falling down in the Christian life? Getting up and going on. Today I am going to get up and go again. How about you?

"We must keep going kids."  -Miss Billie
