I have spoken,
and I will
bring it to pass.
[Isaiah 46:11]
************************
"Lord, what is preDESTINATION?"

"Why do you ask, child?"

"I dunno'.
They talked about it,
in class, last night."

"Tell Me, child."

"For one thing, everybody
acted like they knew
all about it."

[SILENCE.]

"So, how come I DON'T?
HUH?"

[SMILE.]

"Christians talk about
some very weird stuff."

"I understand, child."

"Like, PRE trib,
and POST trib,
and post-MENO-TRIB?"

[PATIENT FROWN.]

"That was just a little
Jewish humor, Lord.
Sorry. I couldn't help it."

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"It just slipped out.
I'll try to be more
reverent."

"Yes, My precious."

"So, what's with this
destination stuff?
I thought it had
somethin' to do with,
Ya know, gettin'
certain genes so that
you ended up being
a Paul McCartney,
or Julia Roberts."

[PATIENT SMILE.]

"Hey, LORD?
did You ever
see 'Pretty Woman'?
Wasn't that CUTE?"

"Yes, My precious."

(smile!)

"Read My Word, child."

"Here's One:

I have purposed,
and I will do it.
[Isaiah 46:11]"

[NOD.]

"Yeah, but these
guys were talking
about, eh.....
SALVATION?"

"What about It, child?"

"Eh, well......that,
like, You chose before
the beginning of the
world who was gonna
get Saved.
(squint)
(frown)
(more squinting)
You were described
as pickin' up,
and tossin'
everybody on
one side or the
other: kind'a
like picking out which
potatoes ought ta'
go into the
POTATO SALAD?"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"Is that TRUE, Lord?"

[SILENCE.]
"What, child."

"That You might
not have PICKED me....
for Y'ur POTATO
salad?"

"No, My child."

(thoughtful silence)
"Hey, LORD?"

"What, My beloved."

"Ya know; people
think that you gotta
skin the potatoes
before making the
salad.
(pause)
But, I think potato
salad tastes a lot
better, when all
the potatoes just
get tossed in there:
skins, bruises,
and all."

[NOD.]
"I understand, My child.
I understand."
************************
We love,
because
He first loved us.
[1 John 4:19]
