Keeping My Desk Clean
Keeping my desk clean is virtually impossible. That is because most every day the Lord gives me more abundant truth that I could possibly absorb or share with others. From time to time I ask His help to sort it all out, share what He wants me to share, absorb what is just for me and discard the rest. I prefer to call what might seem to others like a mess on my desk my treasure-trove. It contains multitudes of God*s truths and blessings. When it comes to God*s truths and blessings I am like a hoarder or a pack-rat. The messes on my desk and stored in my computer are much like a maze through which I must walk every day. Your life is like a maze too. Occasionally a believer tells me that an article I sent out came to them at exactly the right time. I cannot plan that or accomplish it. I don*t know their needs. Some of them I have never even met. I desperately need God*s help every moment of every day. I hope you are not so arrogant that you doubt that you need it too. I pray that you will ask for it and have it and I need your prayers that I will have it.

Psalms 23:1: The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name*s sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
