There is a River whose streams bring joy to God’s city.

~Psalm 46:4, Jerusalem Bible


If it is from God, you will not be able to stop them. You may even find yourselves fighting against God!”


One of my life goals is to read every English translation of the Bible in print. When I started pursuing this goal, I thought there were about 50 but there are actually 450. One of the problems is that the older ones are hard to find like the Weymouth. I was reading the ACTS in the New English Bible and in chapter two I came across this verse… The Jesus we {Peter and John} speak of has been raised from the dead by God the Father, exalted to God’s right hand and has sent us the Holy Spirit {as He promised} and all that you see and hear flows from HIM. Note the phrase, “flows from HIM.”The infant church went from 120 members to 3,120 overnight. The RIVER was flowing and it is still flowing.

The Jews were upset that the Apostles were working miracles and talking about the resurrection. They were doing everything possible to stop the RIVER but they could not…the SPIRIT came like a flood. Peter preached, the Holy Spirit convicted and people believed and were added to the church. It reminds me of what Jesus said to the woman at the well… “Anyone who drinks this water will soon become thirsty again. But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.” I also think of the River flowing from Ezekiel’s Temple: it continued to get deeper and wider. PTL, the RIVER still flows. They say that in Iran, 5,000 people per day convert to Christianity. Christianity is in decline in the US but not in Asia. A group called Asian Access claims that 50,000 people come to faith in Christ every day when you combine all the Asian countries. The RIVER flows and they cannot stop it!

There is a RIVER {Jesus} that never shall run dry! {Shout}

I am happy as a lark, my football season is over. Thank God for Tuesday. You want believe it but I never raised my voice except for the one shout of joy when Barmore stopped them on 4th down. My problem was sitting and relaxing. I knew my pacing was getting on Charles and Marks nerves so I came home and paced in the den. June went to bed and Josie was on the I-Pad. Occasionally she would look up and smile. The main thing is–it is over. I do admit I was wrong: I thought Ohio State was more physical. I was afraid they would beat us up like they did Clemson but we taught those Northerners a lesson.

In the grand scheme of things: the game is not that important because our country is in a mess. If I could trade that win for this nation being healed, I would do it in a heart beat. Rick and Bubba were talking about Marshall Law this morning. Troops have been called into DC but they think it is to secure the inauguration but others say that Trump will declare Marshall Law and uncover the shadow government. I am for Trump. Facebook, google and twitter have already began censoring Trump and others. I have deleted my FB page and I never use Twitter but I will delete it too. Trump is the only man in Washington that I trust. May God’s will be done.

On a lighter note: June showed me a cute video of Ben Chaney watching the games with his dogs. He has trained his dogs to cheer for Alabama. It is a sight for sore eyes. When Alabama scores, those dogs go wild.
