It has been about three weeks and only now am I getting used to being in another land and feeling like it is my home. That is an interesting thought when I consider that it Ireland is indeed my ancestral home. Still, when I give full consideration to the age of the world according even to the short span that the Bible teaches I know that my roots go back much further than this land.

I sometimes get mixed up in my life as a Christian as well thinking that I can somehow add to the work that Christ is doing in my life. He is the One who saves, and He is the One who continues to hold me in His hand. The work of Christ is all Him. Now don't get me wrong, I am completely aware of both my sinful condition and my responsibility before God. It is just that I like many others sometimes fall into the trap of thinking that there is something I must be doing to maintain my position in the family of God, and there isn't. THANK YOU LORD GOD for your grace.
