Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate. Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach. For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.

A letter from Sister Amy concerning a “Thought for the Evening” by Pastor John
When I read the TFE for June 26 about “Looking Up To The Father”, I couldn’t help but think of your father. I feel like that’s what Preacher Clark did in his life. He looked up to his Father. From reading the stories you are writing about Preacher Clark, I saw how he heard from God and went with it. What he was saying was, “Anything that my Father says is better than anything your father says”. He heard it, believed it, and put it into practice.
The stories and the TFE’s that you have written recently are full of gold nuggets. I see there is plenty of room to improve and move up in God. Thanks for writing them and passing on some wisdom that came from experiences that can save us all.
Amen! That’s exactly what I see in the stories about Preacher Clark. Actually, he seemed to be a man who was looking up to his heavenly Father so much that he tripped and fell a few times. But then, didn’t Solomon say that a righteous man would “fall seven times”? Maybe that happens to them because righteous men and women are always looking up instead of doing what earthly parents tell their children to do: “Watch where you’re going!”
All things considered, I’d have to say it is probably better to watch where Jesus goes (Heb. 12:2) than to watch where we think we ought to be going.
