Five Minute Friday host, Kate Motaung, and I exchanged emails early yesterday evening – remember the FMF book I mentioned months ago? We are finalizing the book and preparing for launch! More to come on that. Hubs and I were neck deep in the History channel’s series, ALONE, so I never even set foot in the party last night. I mean, how does one go to a party when a man is ankle-deep in muck staring into the eyes of an 800-pound black bear? Not I!
The word is…
HIDDEN. Love to know how Kate got that one!
This past weekend I was on a road trip with my daughter, grandson, and granddaughter – these three are ‘news’ buffs. I gave up politics when my candidate left the race. I’ve been on a news fast ever since. But because I was traveling with (mainly) two politico’s – we listened to a lot of talk radio as we traveled our 1200-mile road trip (read about IT here).
If you know me. If you read me, you know I’m an ultra-conservative. Here’s my itinerary for THIS election: LIFE, the 2nd Amendment, and Supreme Court Justices appointments. Period. No more on that.
As we drove along, listened to the talking heads and as we approached Cleveland on the Ohio Interstate – I found myself praying out loud. Sitting in the backseat of my daughter’s Ford Edge. My hands lifted toward heaven.
Father God, lift the skirts of the kings and queens – every person in these races – lift them, Lord, and expose even their HIDDEN sins. (Jeremiah 13.26)
O God give us wisdom. Let us live fully exposed – with nothing hidden. The only thing we need to be hiding in these tumultuous days…
Is Your Word. I will HIDE Your Word in my heart – that I might not sin against You. (Psalm 119.11)
