Warren Apr 24 Update
Greenwood, IN, United States
A few years ago Dr. John Oswalt was the One Mission Society retreat speaker. A closing remark by Dr. Oswalt was, “I am sometimes asked, what my favorite Bible passage is?” He replied, “The last one I read.”

I have my life verse, my mission statement for life, and Colossians 2:6, which is the most arresting verse in the Bible, on my office wall. However, I have to confess that Psalm 119 is a favorite chapter also. I am fascinated by the meaning and use of the word “all.” How blessed are those who observe His testimonies, who seek him with all their heart... All your commandments... With all your heart. (Psalms 119:2,6,10)

There is only one way to have a real relationship with God. It is (v.10) - With all your heart. The whole chapter is rich, and in verses 129 to 136 we find a message of holiness and of missions.

I go back to verse 9 - How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping it according to your word.

It has been a great blessing and help to have a prayer partner. A man that I could trust totally with the things going on in my heart and mind related to my life and ministry. Dr. Mike Henderson became my prayer partner after Velma, Roger, Renee, and I moved to Greenwood. One of my confidential prayer request was, “How can I cope with this person who seems to delight in getting on my last nerve.” This was an on-going prayer request for a few weeks with Mike. Then, one morning as we met for prayer, Mike brought a verse of Scripture in a gold frame to me. It was Psalm 119:165 - Those who love your law have great peace. And nothing causes them to stumble. That was several years ago, and it still sticks with me. Mike is a great friend, and it has been a long time since we prayed together; however, his ministry remains to me.

With all my heart I have sought you; do not let me wander from your commandments. Your word I have treasured in my heart. That I may not sin against you. (Psalm 119:11)

In the frustrations of today’s world, Psalm 119:165 might be a good verse to remember as we seek to be marinated in God’s word.

We stand and serve by the grace of God and in the strength of your prayers.

A prisoner of Hope,
