(And of course, to those of you who regularly "check me out" because we have been friends in the past..... and now...sadly... because of geographical and/or emotional distance...we are not.... WELCOME TO YOU also.)
There isn't much I can say about myself here that I haven't already written on my webpage.
So I will just say this. I wish I had understood earlier in life that all I am called to be is what I am - just clay. A simple lump of clay.
Because the system God has set up is that when people around us - who see us in our every day mortal lives - see and feel and acknowledge that something we have done, something we have said, something about the way we live is so way above our natural abilities.. so way above the pay grade of mere clay.....THEN... and ONLY THEN...do people lift their eyes to their Creator and acknowledge that He is a God close by and not far away.
Being clay means being human.
I am just clay and at the same time - I am the royal priesthood.
I am weak but He is strong.
When I seem strong.. it is simply Jesus being seen.
If you are someone who thinks followers of Jesus think we are better than... or above.. others.. then you have probably never met a true follower of Jesus.
