Hear, Yahweh, and answer me: theunfetteredpreacher

Psalm 86:1-7

“Hear, Yahweh, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. Preserve my soul, for I am godly. You, my God, save your servant who trusts in you. Be merciful to me, Lord, for I call to you all day long. Bring joy to the soul of your servant, for to you, Lord, do I lift up my soul. For you, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive; abundant in loving kindness to all those who call on you. Hear, Yahweh, my prayer. Listen to the voice of my petitions. In the day of my trouble, I will call on you, for you will answer me.”

Lord, daily I fail and fall short, I cannot be the man you have called me to be. I sin, I repent, You forgive, I rejoice, I sin…

It is a never-ending story, I fall short of the Glory of God. I am not worthy of Your love and grace. Yet, You are ever faithful.

Lord, our needs are great today, please forgive my stupidity, and supply our needs by Your riches in glory. Give Your angels charge over us, protect and draw us under Your wings.

I love and need You Lord. Help me, answer our prayer, You are our Shepard, we Shall Not Want. You said it, I believe it, now I need to experience it. (Sadly, once again).

Destitute of the Truth: theunfetteredpreacher

In Virginia since the election, excitement is in the air. Now that the Democrats are in control, they can try to erase our history once again.

Confederate History MUST BE REMOVED!

It is more important to believe the lie than to obey the law.

If you do not accept more than 2 Genders, if you believe in biblical truth, if you stand up for Truth, Justice and the American way. YOU ARE A THREAT TO THE LEFT.

I know I have allowed the left too much leeway, they have taken over main street, education, politics and even the Church. (How about you?)

Saints, we must Stand and Fight for the Faith. The Bible is the Word of God, if our ‘Christian Leaders,’ are ignoring the Truth and teaching a lie, we must STAND FOR THE TRUTH.

Walk away from the lies and towards the Lord.

1 Timothy 6:3-6

“If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. But godliness with contentment is great gain.”

To Repair a Flank: theunfetteredpreacher

Anyone who has seen me since I had a kidney removed in 2008, has noticed the hernia on my left side. It started out about the size of a half a football, only sticking out 3 or 4 inches.

Over the years it has grown, considerably. The Dr calls it a Flank repair.

A couple of months ago I had an umbilical hernia removed, and am scheduled to have this soccer ball on my side removed December 9th.

I ask for your prayers and wisdom. I can continue to live with this hump, but I would rather not.

Is my problem just vanity?

Not Out of the Woods: theunfetteredpreacher

My sister-in-law law, (Janet), is having a time of it. She walks towards daylight, when the woods close in around her.

It is a time of great concern. She was successfully operated on, for the brain aneurysm, and things looked good.

Then the little foxes began to spoil the vine. They keep running tests and changing meds, in an attempt to keep her on a path to recovery.

I ask you to pray with us for Wisdom and Knowledge for those who are treating her. For Grace, Peace, and Comfort for the families.

As I have mentioned, they are all committed Christians and believe all is possible with God.

Thanks for your continued prayer.

A Second Chance It Is! Tears of Joy: theunfetteredpreacher

My sister-in-law (Janet), came through the operation today in good shape. I understand this evening even her sense of humor works.

She’s going to be under the watchful eyes of the Medical people for a while, but it looks better than this am.

We thank you for your continued prayers, recovery is not going to be a walk in the park, but recovery brings tears of Joy and Thankfulness.

I know she will have the support and love of her family, and friends.

Thank you again for your love and prayers.

A Second Chance, or Just A Second? theunfetteredpreacher

A few years ago an older friend from church was diagnosed with brain cancer. He had not been sick, or even feeling poorly, but his life changed in a second.

He passed soon after.

Last year, my sweet wife Bette was diagnosed with stage four bone cancer. She had hurt her back she thought from lifting a heavy planter.

Our lives changed in a second.

Thankfully, the chemotherapy has delayed the progress of the disease, and she is doing well.

Last night we received a text from one of her sisters, the youngest of the six (Janet), has had a brain aneurysm, she is in the hospital, the family is gathering and prayer and love is being communicated to the Father.

Many lives, plans, and hopes have changed in a second.

We are praying and planning for a full recovery, for Wisdom and Knowledge for the Doctors, Nurses and others who are caring for her.

Special prayers for Comfort, Peace, and Grace for her daughters, grandchildren and her 5 sisters and their families.

She lives halfway across the country, so our current connection is in the Spiritual Realm. Please pray with us, that this change in a second, becomes a second chance.

I know no other family as full of love and faith as this family.

During our second of change, all the sisters, and some husbands rotated in and out of here to help and love us through. I know Janet will receive the same devotion.

Lord, heal her please.
