It seems like things have been piling up over the last few weeks. It's not my intention to complain or whine, but to declare and demonstrate to Satan that I have faith in my God and his word and what Jesus accomplished while he was here on earth. I won't be making a list of things that concern me, but I am praying for all circumstances to be handled according to God's will. I can see some things working out in time, but "being patient" is a very hard lesson to learn. It reminds me of the old joke: How do you eat an elephant? Answer: One bite at a time. Some of the molehills have been conquered and others will be soon. The Bible says that we can move mountains with our faith.
Mark 11:23 Truly I tell you, whoever says to this mountain, Be lifted up and thrown into the sea! and does not doubt at all in his heart but believes that what he says will take place, it will be done for him.
I am standing on that Scripture daily.
Another Scripture that lifts me is Proverbs 4: 20-27
My son, give attention to my words;
Incline your ear to my sayings.
21 Do not let them depart from your eyes;
Keep them in the midst of your heart;
22 For they are life to those who find them,
And health to all their flesh.
23 Keep your heart with all diligence,
For out of it spring the issues of life.
24 Put away from you a deceitful mouth,
And put perverse lips far from you.
25 Let your eyes look straight ahead,
And your eyelids look right before you.
26 Ponder the path of your feet,
And let all your ways be established.
27 Do not turn to the right or the left;
Remove your foot from evil.
One more week of antibiotics and hopefully I'll be clean as a whistle.
Sometimes the sayings that we use such as "clean as a whistle" interest me as to their meaning and origin. This is the definition I found from ASK.com.
Where Does the Saying Clean as a Whistle Come from?
The saying 'clean as a whistle' means to be as smooth and clean as a clear-toned whistle, meaning that the person or item has no imperfections or is not guilty. The origin of the saying is not really known, though it appeared in a number of writings from the 18th century.
Much love, Dennis
