HELLO my name is JESUS

I saw this at the drive thru at Arby's last Tuesday where I was getting a french dip sandwich. Au jus! When I saw it, I knew it was significant. I think the people behind me thought I was a loon because I stuck my camera out the window to take a picture of the drive-thru. Perhaps, my lunacy made them look for what I was photographing. I don't know. All I know is that the rest of my week felt like I got hit in the face with a brick. It was a blessing to be reminded that Jesus was there right from the beginning.

God has been so gracious and lavished me with His words. I thought I might share some of them here in case any of you are feeling spiritually hit in the face with a brick.

"... guard what has been entrusted to your care. Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge, which some have professed and in so doing have wandered from the faith."
Grace be with you." 1 Timothy 6:20-21

"Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up." -James 4:10

"Oh for the humility of Jesus in myself and all those around me." -Andrew Murray

"He is intimate with the upright." -Proverbs 3:23-24

"He blesses the dwelling of the righteous." -Proverbs 3:33b

"He gives grace to the afflicted." -Proverbs 3:34 b

"A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger." -Proverbs 15:1

All of Psalm 91.
