Debating …pondering …dissecting Scripture ..analyzing the Greek for meaning … I may have landed somewhere.
I’m simple-minded yet emotionally complex.
Knowledge and life experience has poured into my being over the last 5 decades.
I ponder this life and the Creator God and how it is all woven together in some wild and mysterious fashion.
My head is full of thoughts as I lie down for the evening and then it’s as if the Holy Spirit sings something simple and soothing into my soul …
“My faith has found a resting place,
Not in device nor creed.
I trust the Ever-Living One –
His wounds for me shall plead.
I need no other argument,
I need no other plea,
It is enough that Jesus died …
And that He died for me.” *
And I knew — in all the thoughts and debate and analysis — it is enough that Jesus died and that He died for me!
My simple mind is embracing the profound !
My heart is at rest!
It is well with my soul!
