In His Grip

My youth pastor signed a letter of recommendation for me that way once: In His Grip, Paul.

At the time I thought it was cute and a little unprofessional. Now I find myself saying it almost everyday.

For the first time yet, I have felt a direct impact of the suffering economy. It isn't anything compared to those who have lost jobs, their homes, their cars. But it is the first time that it has hit home for me.

Anywho, Jer Bear and I were talking about how even worst case scenario next year, we are going to have a place to live, food to eat and enough money to pay off our loans. God is so good to us. I really want to honor him with all that I am, in everyway that I can.

Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from Heaven above
With Wisdom, Power and Love
Our God is an awesome God

That's exactly where Bobby and I are to the T. We don't have a ton of extra, but we have rent, food, and loan money, are still able to give to our church and we have health insurance. God is indeed kind!
