WE AMERICAN CHRISTIANS ARE AN IMPATIENT LOT BUT, THEN AGAIN, WE ARE A PART OF A SOCIETY THAT TODAY EXPECTS INSTANT GRATIFICATION.  WHEN WE HAVE TROUBLE, WE ASK GOD FOR HELP IN PRAYER AND SO MANY OF US ARE THEN DISAPPOINTED IF, VOILA, THINGS DON'T CHANGE INSTANTANEOUSLY. SOME THEN BACK AWAY FROM GOD, CLAIM HE DOESN'T WANT TO HELP THEM AND GIVE UP.  BUT THERE ARE ALSO THOSE WHO KEEP THEIR HEARTS OPEN, REALIZE THAT GOD HAS PLANS THAT HE IMPLEMENTS ACCORDING TO HIS SCHEDULE NOT OURS, AND THEY WORK TO STAY THE COURSE.  THAT IS OBVIOUSLY THE CHOICE TO FOLLOW, FOR THE ALL LOVING AND ALL POWERFUL GOD KNOWS ALL ABOUT US, WHAT WE NEED AND THE BEST WAY TO DEAL WITH THE ISSUES AT HAND.  AND BESIDES, SO MANY OF THOSE ISSUES ARE VERY MINOR INDEED, OR WANTS AS OPPOSED TO NEEDS, AND SOMETIMES HE USES SITUATIONS AS A WAY TO TEACH US THE ERROR OF OUR WAYS.

THE BOTTOM LINE, FOLKS, IS THAT WE ARE HUMANS SUBJECT TO ALL THE FRAILTIES AND WEAKNESSES THAT WE HAVE AND GOD DOES INDEED TEST US.  BUT HE DOESN'T EXPECT PERFECTION, JUST OUR WILLINGNESS TO BELIEVE AND DO THE BEST WE CAN TO LIVE FOR HIM.  AFTER ALL, DIDN'T HE GIVE US THE PERFECT GIFT THROUGH THE DEATH OF HIS SON, A GIFT OF THE OPPORTUNITY FOR ETERNAL LIFE?  WHAT MORE COULD WE POSSIBLE WANT?

WE'LL TALK ABOUT THIS THINGS THIS WEEKEND AND THEN THE SHOW WILL BE AVAILABLE 24/7 FOR CONVENIENT LISTENING.  WE WILL HAVE THE MESSAGE, SCRIPTURE, PRAYER AND GOOD CHRISTIAN MUSIC.  WE HOPE YOU WILL JOIN US FOR A DOSE OF CHRISTIAN SPIRIT TO HELP CARRY YOU THROUGH WHEN YOU NEED HIS HELP.  HE'S ALWAYS THERE FOR YOU.  GOD BLESS.
