    Awesome. Shared…. I am about 95% like Chester…. I want to think I am ‘safe and secure from all alarm”…and I AM ‘leaning on the Everlasting Arms”, but my Life PTSD interrupts my thoughts often…too often.
    Thank you. This is beautiful..

    Great analogies! Yes, I’m Chester… thank you for the reminder that Miss Kitty’s life awaits…

  3. John 20:29 says:

    FWIW – i mentioned the other day that i can, with a little editing, hear God in the popular song: “All I Ask of You”… (if you should link, ignore the screen display – Placido Domingo is not God :smile:) for me, at least, it’s not sacrilegious as i believe sometimes the longings that we ascribe to the natural are, in reality, longings that only God can answer and, yet we can’t seem to quite bring Him fully into the reality of our daily challenges… we know He knows, but we can’t quite see how close He is
    i think most of us are more like Chester, but don’t forget how kind and loving our Lord was with Thomas… John 20:25-27…

    with apologies to Michael – i do get and appreciate the point made in today’s TGIF, but…
    i don’t think that i have had the privilege of knowing a Miss Kitty Christian – this side of heaven, at least

    To pick up on Em’s comment @3;
    Its funny – I no longer buy into the label – Christian Music. Actually, this is a prideful description by prideful men / women.

    There are only 2 types of music
    1.) That which honors God and his creation
    2.) That which honors man.

    #1 can and is often sung by ‘non religious’ people who do not even mention God or Jesus.

    Well done Michael.

  6. John 20:29 says:

    to comment on MLD’s #4… 🙂
    so much of what speaks to a man’s (generic) soul stems from that thing called the God void – how many people say that their church is up on a mountain or a golf course, even…
    even our mates and our families, which we do and should love are shadows of how we can or could relate to our Creator… IMNSHO

    you can almost judge Christian music by its pronouns LOL

    This was hilarious! Cats are a a trip My cat is like Miss Kitty. He actually attacks me and bites me while I’m sleeping, to get me to get up and feed him! And yes, he walks on my head too. My husband is always drawing analogies between his Golden Retriever and God. He actually uses them in his sermons. And he is NOT irreverent.

    But back to the point of this thread; yes, we need to let the truth of scripture inform us, transform us, renew our thinking instead of our emotions bullying us.

    “Affection makes him nervous…he loves it until his fear kicks in…the fear that if he lets his guard down something bad will happen.

    He’s trusted others before…it didn’t work out well.”

    Insightful. Nice, Michael.
