Late again this week, but two excuses:  I've been out of town for five days and also brought back a bug -- or allergies or something with me.

Paul's prayer for the Colossians, among many to be found in that letter, is that we "may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God".

We can't walk worthily or be "fruitful in every good work" unless we have the "knowledge of God".  This knowledge of Him is why I attend Bible Studies and read the Bible regularly.  Nowhere else can I find the true knowledge of Him.  If I look elsewhere, I end up with someone else's opinion of Him.  Have you ever wondered at the thousands of ideas as to who or what God is?  How can we find the truth in that maze of opinions?  But Jesus says, "I am the truth".  Thank goodness we have something and Someone who really knows truth in this sadly mixed up world.

Thought provoking on this one for sure...It is rather hard to find the truth especially in this world of ours. Good post today.

So sorry to hear you're not feeling well - I shall be praying for you to know JESUS ministering His healing power to you.Praise God that by the stripes of JESUS we are healed.

You are so right in what you say about Bible Study. O, don't you just love the word of God? It's like rich fruit cake. The deeper you go, the more you discover...bless His Name. x

Something I heard about Truth......
The disciples were in the boat with Jesus. A storm came up while Jesus was sleeping in the boat. They woke him and asked him, "Master, carest thou not that we perish?" He stilled the storm.
Jesus told them he was the Truth.

We get into storms of life. We should not try to evaluate the situation of the storm until TRUTH has spoken. He is in the storm with us.

I have never forgotten that story and it has helped a lot.
