When it’s all said and done…



Pray with, and for, other Leaders and Churches in your Area

My diary is full.
My desk is full.
My inbox is full.
My letterbox is full.
The ministry is busy.
Christmas is coming.
My quiet times are rushed
Everybody wants my attention.
The outside world is falling apart.
The T.V. at home demands centre stage.
There are too many items and issues I should know about. 

But when it’s all said and done:

    And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
    and to walk humbly with your God.

Close the door, put the phone on silent, have a Bible handy, and start::
“Jesus, I love you, really love you…”
