No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing.

~Philippians 3:13, NLT


Inspired men inspire.

What could Satan do with Paul? There’s not much he could do with a man who had narrowed his interest to one thing, knowing Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His suffering. Paul had no side issues so Satan had no way to distract him. He had no ambition so there was nothing to cause him jealously. Paul had no reputation so there was nothing for him to defend. He had no possessions so there was nothing for him to lose. He had no rights so there was no way he could be wronged. He was already broken so no one could break him. He was already dead so no one could kill him. He was the least of the least so no one could demote him. He had suffered the loss of all things so no one could defraud him. It’s no wonder Paul’s name was known in hell: he was a terror to The Terrorist [Satan].

  • Today we pray for those facing TRIALS: Kenny and family plus my Aunt Angie.
  • We are very grateful to Teddy, Lisa, the girls, Mr. Charles and Mrs. Ann for being such gracious host. We love FRIENDSHIP Baptist Church and thank them for putting up with us. We had good services. The singing was great. We are very thankful the LORD allowed us to come and be a part of this special week. God bless Teddy and family and all the folks at FRIENDSHIP.
  • One little story: We talked about Henry’s pet snake on Tuesday and what I would do to it. Bernard and his wife Patty carried us to lunch yesterday and she warned me when we got into their van that they were pet lovers. I explained that I do not feel the same about dogs as I do snakes. She said, “Good, because we have a dog and Bernard loves that dog. At night he kisses the dog and then looks at me and says, ‘good night.'”
  • A note to Deidre: we ate at Ruby Tuesday’s last night.
