The Dwelling Place of God by Max Lucado

'Do-it-yourself Christianity isn’t much encouragement to the done-in and worn-out. “Try a little harder” is little encouragement for the abused. At some point we need more than good advice; we need help. Somewhere on this journey we realize that the fifty-fifty proposition is too little. We need help from the inside out. The kind of help Jesus promised. “I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper to be with you forever—the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it does not see him or know him. But know him, because he lives with you and will be in you” (John 14:16-17).'

'Note the dwelling place of God: in you. Not near us, above us. But in us. In the hidden recesses of our beings dwells not an angel, not a philosophy, not a genie, but God. Imagine that."

Mike: This one hits home beause of my work with CASA children who are abused and/or abondoned. The young ones are confused. One 8 year old ask his mother why she gave him away. The older ones are angry. They need to understand Max's lesson. These children are all over Bedford County. Please pray for the children of our county!
