What I Have Learned


If there is one thing I have learned about people in my 45 yrs of ministry it is that they all wrestle with the past, try to control the present, and worry about the future. Since I didn’t resign from the human race when I surrendered to the call to preach…I have to deal with the same things every day.

I read something in a book written by J.B. Myer [an author of many years ago] that I try to put into practice every day. “Give your past to the Grace of God, live in the present with Faith In God, and look to the Future with the Hope Of God.”

That’s easy to write; easy to quote; but it is not so easy to do. I am asking God for the strength to apply this to my life today. It is the only way to have peace of mind. I am praying that all those I care about will read this and apply this principle to their life today. Let’s just let go…and let God take over in every part of our life.
