It Is Enough!

It is not well that I should walk always
on life’s easy street
How should my feet not bleed for love;
Love’s feet bled for me
And His love is sweet.
I follow, though the thorns and brambles tear
And the rocky track is sharp and rough,
Why should I complain if a cross I bear
Christ went that way, It is enough.

    ah, Imogene! Dale and you have known and experienced and embodied this truth about Jesus in your many years away from home imaging Him in service to Europe. It pleases me when I imagine him, repeatedly hurrying out the door to teach the Lord Jesus to people he reached out to. And you checking in various places ensuring that the medicine and other needful things were getting to the needy. God saw and remembers it all and now watches over you both in your difficult times. love, jim

    I like everything i have read by you, Jim, and this is really fine, also. I am proud of you, your love for the word of God and your life devoted to study, preaching and writing about this wonderful book, the Bible! Most importantly I respect your way of putting these teachings into you own life. And, You have certainly been a good example for me and I thank you and praise God for your abilities and love for Him and others. Your friend, Imogene McAnulty

    Thank you for your very fine comment to Dale and me! I miss you and do not see a time in the future that I will see you except when we both get to heaven! That thrills me and gives me peace and joy. God bless you every day in every way with you 3 precious children and their loved ones! With my love and appreciation, Imogene McAnulty

      Thank you for speaking His blessing on me, Mike. The question arises sometimes from those who aren’t yet Christ’s friends, “What does He actually do?” and we find it difficult to ‘explain’ in such a way that we think would make sense to them. There IS much to say but I suppose, in the end, it comes down to ‘taste and see’ or as Philip says to the moody Nathaniel in John 1, “Come and see.” God’s enriching and sustaining blessings on you and all yours. j
