Happy New Year everyone! Thank you for the overwhelming response to our weekly blogs. You don’t know how much it means to me that someone is actually reading them. Years ago, there would be times of grrreeeat (if you can imagine Tony the tiger saying it) times of being downtrodden for various reasons. And I came to learn that I am only human and yes, I too, need a pat on the back occasionally.
I recall vividly going to God saying, “God, even bunny rabbits need a carrot sometimes to go a little further.” Then, just to make sure, in case He did not get it the first time (and wanting to get the final word in), I would throw in, “I just need a carrot to keep going.”
Well, you readers have given me those carrots and I really appreciate every one of them. My job is to get to others, one by one, the truth of what Jesus really died for. My intention is to explain this to you in a simple and clear way so you can get it. Evidently, it is working.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to write to me at the Island Gazette or email me with anything you would like to see explained and I will do the best I can through the Holy Spirit…as He guides.
By the way, I just finished my first semester at Liberty University (Theology studies); having made straight A’s so far. Finding out I was 56 years old and just beginning to attend college, someone remarked, “Well, Molly, what are you going to be when you grow up?” At first, I was kind of offended and then upon further reflection thought, No, you don’t understand. Now that I have matured by the power of the Holy Spirit working through me, I am now able to make a clear decision to get a degree.”
Thank each and every one of you….Christine, the kind man at Papa Murphy’s Pizza, Donna, and all of the rest of you who have helped to give me confidence to fulfill my destiny. May God richly bless you for your kindness.
