It's February 3; Good Morning Union

“Respect the Lord and you’ll live a long life; obey Him, and you’ll save yourself a lot of heartache.”        Proverbs 19:23 (Randy Reed Paraphrased Version)

This is getting pretty basic for my journey through life. Two requests, tied together into one idea, for a secure and positive live- respect and obey God. That’s about as clear and simple as it can get! I can get excited about a long life without heartaches!

It never ceases to amaze me just how much good God desires for me. His plan has always to give me the best He can; the only limitation He has is my freedom to choose, which He respects, even to Him not being able to do what He wants for me. If I would only learn- respect and obey- recognize and honor Him as God and listen to what He says and then do it. And with that- long life- without heartache.

Have a great day of respect and obedience,

Pastor Rich
