One of the grat tragedies of life is that men seldom bridge the gulf between practice and profession, between doing and saying. A persistent schizophrenia leaves so many of us tragically divided against ourselves. On the one hand, we proudly profess certain sublime and noble principles, but on the other hand, we sadly practise the very antithesis of these principles. How often are our lives characterised by a high blood pressure of creeds and an anaemia of deeds! We talk eloquently about our commitment to the principles of Christianity, and yet our lives are saturated with the practices of paganism. We proclaim our devotion to democracy, but we sadly practise the very opposite of the democratic creed. We talk passionately about peace, and at the same time we assiduously prepare for war. We make our fervent pleas for the high road of justice, and then we tread unflinchingly the low road of injustice. This strange dichotomy, this agonising gulf between the ought and the is, represents the tragic theme of man’s earthly pilgrimage.

Thankful for skilled Doctors and the Lord’s Healing

Every generous act and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights;
—James 1:17 HCSB

I am sitting here listening to my wife sleep. She just came from surgery that will have healed her from terrible pain that inflicted her 3 weeks out of every month. At times, great and debilitating pain. 

She has suffered through this pain thinking and feeling broken and hopeless. However, thanks to skilled Doctors and nurses, and especially thanks to Our Heavenly Father, she will be healed from that suffering. 

Praise God!
