The Foolishness Of Our Youth

The foolishness of our youth… The adversary sure takes advantage of it! Praise God for the ones He’s saved and the ones that have listened and given action/life to His calling. How truly fortunate we are – for as the Bible says, Ecclesiastes 11:9 (KJ) “Rejoice, O young man, in your youth, And let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth; Walk in the ways of your heart, And in the sight of your eyes; But know that for all these God will bring you into judgment.” Count your lucky stars, my child, if it was a slap on the hand, or even the face. For some overdose and die, some bare untimely births, some are diseased for life, some are paralyzed for life! Do we continue in our ways because the ramifications have not been severe enough to make us stop, or because we’re still well enough to fall… Why must we sometimes hit the ‘bottom of the barrel’ or slam into a brick wall to see our lives from God’s eyes? Our sin, from God’s eyes? Why can’t we just hear and actually HEAR! See and actually SEE… I thank my God that in the midst of my wretched existence He calls me and provides enough strength for me to listen. For I was truly dead – dead in my sins – and now I’m alive – from my death in Christ – and now I will live – ‘not I, but Christ that lives within me’ (a portion of Galatians 2:20) – and for that and so much more, my Father, I am eternally grateful… Thank You… Thank you… THANK YOU!!!
