I wanted you to know Scottie was back in the hospital and out again. He had to start kidney dialysis yesterday. His kidneys aren't doing so well. He hasn't really felt good since he had pneumonia awhile ago, and it may not have been pneumonia at all. What I believe is that he will come through this. He is one amazing guy, so strong. The Lord gave me Romans 4. 17-18 (Message)
We call Abraham "father" not because he got God's attention by living like a saint, but because God made something out of Abraham when he was a nobody. Isn't that what we've always read in Scripture, God saying to Abraham, "I set you up as father of many peoples"? Abraham was first named "father" and then became a father because he dared to trust God to do what only God could do: raise the dead to life, with a word make something out of nothing. When everything was hopeless, Abraham believed anyway, deciding to live not on the basis of what he saw he couldn't do but on what God said he would do. And so he was made father of a multitude of peoples. God himself said to him, "You're going to have a big family, Abraham!"
Isn't that good? I've decided to believe, not looking at what I see. God Is so good. More later...
