In Isaiah 49:16 God assured wayward Judah:

“Behold, I have a inscribed you on the palms of My hands; your walls are continually before Me.”

The Lord Jesus used the same “hands” Word Picture in the New Testament.

Jesus said to His believer-followers:

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;  and I give eternal life to them, and they shall never perish; and no one shall snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.”

(John 10:27-29)

Believer, you are in good hands!


These are Paul and Denise Worrell’s sheep and lamb.

That’s their chickens’ water bucket over the young one’s head!

Rescue occurred in time.

The Lord calls us His sheep. And He knows that we are ever-prone to wander away from Him into trouble! (Isaiah 53:6)

We are truly very blessed that the Lord Jesus is our Good Shepherd! 24/7. 365/y. (Psalm 23)

He will not see you starve or continue to look foolish.

He’s not only our Good Shepherd; He’s our perfect Shepherd!

Praise Him for His care for you!


At times it must be tough to keep a straight face as an Emergency Room Doctor.

There are times when one’s own bright idea and efforts

are a huge problem!

And this is not just with hairdressing projects: It’s also with religious projects!

Isaiah 64:6 –

“For all of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment, and all of us wither like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.”

Do -It-Yourself Righteousness cannot win you either forgiveness or salvation. Only Jesus Christ’s righteousness makes anyone “straight” with Holy God.

And Jesus’ righteousness is given as a grace gift to those who will trust Him and only Him for forgiveness and heaven.

Titus 3:5 –

“He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit … “.

As serious as DIY Hairdressing is, DIY Salvation is WORSE … ETERNALLY WORSE.

Everyone Did What Was Right in His Own Eyes – Judges 21:25b

BaseballToday there were no sales of peanuts, popcorn or hotdogs in Camden Yards.

Today, after a pair of postponements caused by rioting in Baltimore, the Orioles and the Chicago White Sox played at Camden Yards in what is believed to be the first game without fans in major league baseball’s 145-season history!

It wasn’t “Take me out to the Ball Game”
It was “Lock you out of the Ball Game”!

Rioters: Two wrongs don’t make a right!

Only Jesus can make rebels like all of us right.

Only Jesus can bring about a future, literal
riot-free Kingdom!  (Isaiah 11:1-4)

I’m really looking forward to that!

Anarchy fixes nothing.
