All things

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

I am going to skip ahead in Philippians today because I really need to think about this verse. Amy left on a mission trip to South Africa this past Friday along with thirteen other young men and women from her church. We knew communication would be difficult and we have not heard back from them as to their arrival. Needless to say this is tough on mom and dad.

This is Amy’s second missionary trip to South Africa and one of the young ladies is from South Africa so that have support there. Still it is hard. Last night as I lay in bed I wondered when we would hear from them. Finally I had to just let go and tell God it was in His hands. I have lost count of how many times I have said this to myself and others yet it is still hard for me to let go and put things in God’s hands even when I know it is the right thing to do.

So please pray for safety for Amy and her friends, that many lives will be touched and changed, that those who do not know Christ will come to know Him and finally pray for Gail and me.

Have a blessed day,

The name of this blog is taken from 1 Peter 3:13 - “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience. This verse became special to me over ten years ago when I was asked to teach an adult Sunday school class on Christian apologetics. This interest grew over the years to the point that I took some graduate level classes in apologetics. I think the best way to be prepared to give and answer to everyone who asks is to know scripture. It is my hope that through these short devotionals the reader will become more familiar with each verse. I have tried when possible to make them personal hoping in some small way to show that God’s word written over two thousand years ago is still relevant today. In the writing of these short devotionals I have been able to better understand how God’s word impacts my life. It is my hope that you too will come closer to our Lord Jesus and develop a closer relationship with Him. Finally, if the reader finds anything in conflict with scripture please let me know. God’s word is the final authority always overrules anything I might write. David
