I believe that the insights i have will comfort, exhort, and edify you…
I believe that what is here is for you.
One day I sat down to have a cup of tea. I worked at an estate house. I was required to cut the grass. I sat on a mower for four hours a week. The grass extended into the woods, around the loch, and onto the green around the house. I digress. I sat down to drink a cup of tea. I remembered that a few years ago I was at a men’s meeting. The leader of the group gave each man a half sheet of A4 paper, cut length ways. He instructed all 14 of us to put our names at the top and pass it the man on our left. Each of us was to write a short statement about the person named at the top of the paper slip. At the end of the exercise we each had a slip of paper with fourteen comments. Later I read the list, and I have to say, i did not really take anything in. Later in the year I came across the list, and for some reason, I typed up the list. I placed it in my filo fax. Here I was two years later having a tea break from my grass cutting responsibility, and remembering that list, or should I say, the holy spirit, brought it back to my mind. The old filo fax was in my car. I paused my tea, and obtained the filo fax and list from the car. Sipping my tea again, I thought through the list of comments made by those 14 men, from three years ago. The list of comments were all the things that throughout my life I have striven to achieve. In my mind I have never felt I had achieved them. In that moment I saw the comments in a new light, as I realized that the men saw the comments as complete in me. They said Ronald has; Ronald is. As an independent man, I was always striving to get there. I also understood the importance of having friends around you who can see in you the finished work, and bring you to a place of rest. Hallelujah!
I will write on different topics on this site. I pray as you read you will be verified, exhorted, and comforted. There are two places in life. Outside of Christ, and inside of Christ. I will do all that is necessary to encourage you to come into Christ. That you will discover, for yourself, that Jesus is the Christ, the anointed one of God.
I desire to make contact with you, if you have a heart to discover Jesus for yourself. It is said of John’s gospel; it is shallow enough for a baby to paddle in, and deep enough for an elephant to swim in. I would encourage you to swim deeply, and to paddle safely.
One thought on “A little more…”
Thank you Ronald. You have a great site. May many come to it and find refreshment from the great Shepherd, Jesus.
