deep well

a chat with Oswald Chambers this morning...

{source unknown}

This is sometimes what I sound like :
" 'But, Lord, the well is deep; You cannot draw up quietness and comfort out of it.'

No, He will bring them down from above.
We will come to Jesus as Comforter or as Sympathizer, but we will not come to Him as Almighty. 

The reason some of us are such poor specimens of Christianity is because we have no Almighty Christ. 
We have Christian attributes and experiences, but there is no abandonment to Jesus Christ... 

You know it can be done if you look to Jesus. The well of your [our] incompleteness is deep, but make the effort and look away to Him."
--Oswald Chambers

I'm thankful God uses people like Mr. Chambers to give me a kick in the rear every once in a while.  I limit the Almighty God with my unbelief.  Just this morning I read the story in Mark 9 about the dad asking Jesus to heal his demon-possessed son... I like the dad's response, because it's often mine : "Lord I believe; help my unbelief."

Tomorrow I leave for Paris to lead worship for a women's retreat.  Sometimes I doubt that God could ever use such a cotton-headed ninny muggins sinner like myself.  Yet I believe He has already prepared good things in advance.  He truly is ALL-MIGHTY !

See you in a week - I'm going to miss my handsome.

Love Linz
