Yes? No? Which Is It?

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I discussed yesterday about attending church groups for different forms of Bible study.

What a great time it is, for me.  I suppose you can tell I enjoy being with my brothers and sisters in the Lord.

On SONday, we had a wonderful worship service.

Not only was the worship honouring to God.  But, once again, so was the music.

Our young adults who play instruments and sing, led our songs.  Music/song worship time, was wonderful!

Some people might have wondered why I kept looking around.

It was because someone I knew had told me they and a friend of theirs would join me.  They want to get married.

Unfortunately, they don't worship anywhere.  This means there is no one to marry them, since they told me they want to get married in a church.

So, I had invited them to join me, on Sunday.  This way, they could meet with my pastor and others.

Since where I worship is near where they live, I thought for sure they would keep their word.  But, unfortunately, they did not.

Nor, have I even heard from them, since.  To me, this was disappointing.

I realize it wasn't an oath they were stating when they agreed to meet up with me, to worship.  And, to meet my pastor, and some of my church family.

But, even so a Bible verse came to my mind, as I sat there, rather disappointed.

It was Matthew 5:37, "But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one."

Hopefully, they will contact me and let me know why they didn't make it.

However, if they don't, it's okay.  It doesn't change the way I feel about them.  I still care for them.

It doesn't surprise me, though.  I've been told many times in the past, that they would join me.  And, they haven't.

Oh well.  People do let us down, from time to time.

No one is perfect. 

Not me.  Not you.  Nor anyone here on earth.

The only perfect person was Jesus.

And, He gave His life for the sin of the world.  For all, who will believe.

How grateful I am for this.  How grateful I am that I love Him, and trust in Him.

After all, being saved, means that I will spend eternity in Heaven with Him.

What can be better than this?

Until next time...
