Pastor Paul's Paragraphs - November 2015

Psalm 139
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
15 My frame qas not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written your book before one of them came to be.

I have some questions for God when I get to the pearly gates. And yes - I will be face down. My questions may not be justice stuff or why did you make giraffes but more under the heading of "What were you thinking when you did this?" Read More..........
