Deuteronomy 30:11, 14 Surely, this commandment that I am commanding you today is not too hard for you, nor is it too far away. No, the word is very near to you; it is in your mouth and in your heart for you to observe. * * * * * * It is the story of the Christian life. Love is harder than it looks. There are times when we feel light years away from God. I look for inspiration. I want my books, my friends, my teachers to inspire me. I figure inspiration has to travel a long distance and through the intricacies of well-crafted wisdom. And yet, God makes inspiration as readily accessible as the next breath. I suppose that is where the word "inspire" comes from - to breathe in. Duh. * * * * * * Sometimes, Lord, you drive me crazy. Amen.
