Thank You Lord for

Good Morning Everyone,

What a privilege it is to be able to join right smack dab in the middle of a community of faith like this one, virtually in the middle of an on going conversation in which it sure seems as though our Moderator of this conversation is the Lord Jesus Himself as He is present with us in the Person of the Holy Spirit.

Since this is the place where we new members introduce ourselves, I’m blessed with sort of a ‘portfolio’ that is already packaged. While I would be glad to answer any specific questions you might have about me directly, I would consider it an honor if you would be interested in my personal testimony and a specific ministry to which I believe God has called me by visiting a website the Lord placed upon the hearts of several friends of mine and me: I can tell by reading some of your introductory comments on this ‘get acquainted’ forum that many of you can certainly relate.

Suffice it to say, while I will soon be celebrating 40 years of formal “ordained” ministry as a Southern Baptist servant within the greater and universal body of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and while I jump at every opportunity to proclaim the Word of God from His pulpit wherever the invitation is extended, and to teach in-depth studies of His Word in Bible studies and seminars, the majority of my time is devoted to writing Bible study helps and material and providing personal counseling, particularly to hurting brothers and sisters in Christ.

I can’t introduce myself in a forum like this without mentioning the wonderful powerful inspiration I receive from my dear wife, Michaela, with whom we will be celebrating 30 years of marriage on the 25th of this month, and the blessing of our only child, Wes, now an adult, a 24-year-old single architecture graduate student, who, despite being an accomplished martial arts expert (he’s the director of the karate program offered by one of the YMCA branches here in Louisville, Kentucky), his consuming passion is serving the Lord through a ministry to international students on the main campus of the University of Kentucky. Good thing he takes after his mother. Wow, am I so blessed! Anyway, if you compare my personal testimony at the Christianlifesaver website with the testimony that God can raise up gifted, talented, and remarkably humble servant children, even through the lives of inadequate parents like me, you will hopefully revel with me in the joy that God is so ready and willing to do great things in accordance with His Will, both in spite of and through any of us who demonstrate a ‘willingness,’ flawed as we may be, to align our own personal wills with His (Romans 8:28).

I’m going to close for now. I’d like to read some more of these ‘get acquainted’ blog entries. Even the one by the “anonymous” atheist is marked by an encouraging, respectful tone. 🙂

What do YOU think?



  1. Dr Glenn Nowell has a wonderful ministry to people in distress and strongly teaches on the importance of thanksgiving which I really believe is a major key to our well-being as believers. I recommend his ministry at .

    My family and I put our trust in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, when
    tribulations and trials come I know God uses others to Bless those less
    fortunate, but I just feel like…………..
    I CAN’T go on by myself anymore!!!!!… I feel like there is a lot on
    me right now.
    My husband wanted to take his life, but I was able to encourage him not
    to give up,
    and to please continue to trust God. Here is our story:

    My husband was let go on a job he loved, right before his 90 day
    evaluation on April
    3rd. It took him 3.5 years to find a good job, since our job losses in
    2008. I was a
    store manager at Sears and my husband
    was a warehouse manager at Sears, we
    both made good money together, until our store closed. My husband
    finally gets a real job Jan 2012, only to be let go from it for no
    reason. My husband worked at several temp places, but nothing
    permanent ever happened out of them. We
    thought since my husband was Blessed with this job in Jan 2012, that
    this was the job we been waiting for, but like every other job it did
    not last either. My husband did everything right on this job, and he
    don’t understand??????…he just wants to work. I still call this job a
    Blessing whether it lasted or not, because our Lord giveth and our Lord
    away…We can’t pay bills, get toiletries/necessities, things for our
    girls…they are in need of church clothes, shoes,
    underclothing, etc…We were getting things for them gradually when my
    husband was working, but now we can’t, but my family and I are very
    anyway, because we are ALL still
    together, and we are on this journey together!!!…Praise God for a
    family that will fight and refuse to give up!!! The Lord must have
    something awesome in store for my family and I!!!…Praise God for his

    We have been Blessed to get expedited food stamps, so now we
    eat!!!!!…Praise God!! We have three girls that have been through a
    lot, their house was taken in 2010, and had to move to a bad area, but
    we all know we are very BLESSED to have a roof over our heads. My
    family and I count our many Blessings everyday!!! I’m hurt right now,
    but will continue to give Praises to God for the good and the bad. We
    have been Praising God for his highest favor for my family and I.

    My husband is trying hard to find a job. God’s high favor WILL get us
    through this storm, and also get us a financial breakthrough, as well
    as a stronger spirit than we ever had before, and right now our spirits
    broken. We have had a breakthrough come through on June 5th. A kind
    soul paid for an escort driving class for June 7th for my husband to go
    to the class, well he went to the class, and Praise God he PASSED the
    test!!!, and he has work lined up, but can’t do any of the work yet,
    because he has to have his small car pilot ready…lights, flags, wide
    load signs, pole, etc…so my husband ims trying to go to work and we
    are trying to help ourselves. If someone would please pray for my
    family and I, I would
    be very grateful and if someone would like to be a Blessing to
    us…please pray on it, and let God lead you to Bless us…Thank you
    for taking time to read our story.

    God Bless,
    The Lamb Family
