Read Galatians 5:16The Creator has a specific plan for each person's life,and He has arranged our talents, abilities, and circum-stances to fit with these individualized goals (Eph.2:10). When we connect with our God-given purpose,we feel deep satisfaction and great joy. However, it's important to understand that we can't achieve theLord's goals on our own; only by His strength and direction are we able to succeed.In John 16:33, Jesus warned us that trouble is an integral part of life in this world. But easily forgettinghow weak we are, we tend to take on challenges in our own strength and resourcefulness. Human naturewants to tackle life by itself and in its own power--and then take credit. So when temptations, trials, crit-icism, gossip, and persecution assail, many of us have the tendency to go into high gear and try all theharder.For a while, life may actually seem good this way. But in the long run, self-reliance creates a mess. And it also interferes with the fulfillment of God's purposes.The truth is, we sometimes have to experience failure in life in order to realize our complete dependenceupon God. He lovingly breaks our pride by showing us that we cannot live fully without following theSpirit's guidance.Have you surrendered to the Holy Spirit's control? Acknowledge your weakness and recognize Hispower, omniscience, and wisdom. The Lord does not call you to live the Christian life, which is a humanimpossibility. Rather, He wants you to yield control and let Him live His life through you.

For quite a few years, “we thepeople” of the US have struggledwith how to provide and pay forhealth care. There is an interest-ing history that got us here.In this country, during WorldWar II, the Federal Governmentforced a wage control, therebybringing companies to compete forthe smaller workforce by givingemployee health insurance bene-fits as an alternative to a highersalary. This health insurancetrend was enhanced in 1954 by atax break on businesses that gaveemployee health insurance. Thus,over the years, after the war, webecame a country where about75% of health care was paid for byemployer-based health insurance.But that left the elderly and un-employed without health insur-ance, and the nation startingarguing about how to fill the gapfor these people. In 1965 presidentLyndon Johnson pushed throughCongress two new programs to payfor health care called Medicareand Medicaid. Some thought thenthat our problems were solved andeveryone was covered.However this evolving system,which is unique to us, differentfrom all the countries of the world,has resulted in two huge problems:first, by 2008 more than 46 millionpeople were not covered, since in-surance companies had to competeby not insuring and avoiding highrisk and expensive patients. Sec-ond, because “the more you do, themore you make” has driven ourwhole system of health care, there-fore more services were provided,which drastically grew hospitals,sub-specialist physicians, proce-dures, pharmaceuticals, and ad-vancing technology. Some of this isgood, but it is very expensive.On top of this, our legal tort/lia-bility system has almost encour-aged patients to threatenedhospitals and physicians with law-suit for any bad result, whetherthere was bad practice or not. Theconsequence has been a culture of health care, which is driven to pre-scribe the highest level of technol-ogy available. And thus we have the most ex-pensive system in the world. Infact we are twice as expensive asthe world’s top 15 most costlyhealth care systems.President Obama’s effort withthe ACA, also lovingly called Oba-macare, is a huge step toward pro-viding insurance coverage for morepeople, but much more will beneeded to control costs.What should the politicians inWashington do next?

Is it just me, or do others havetrouble catching up? Just when itlooks like I am almost caught upwith some project or my to-do-list,something happens setting meback a few paces. One step for-ward, as they say and for me 17steps backward. Or, so it seems.I don’t have any problem what-soever catching a cold. I once evencaught a fly in my mouth whilepreaching, and it is as easy as New York style cheesecake to catch thedickens from the Gracious Mis-tress of the Parsonage. Catchingup is another matter all together.Two things happened last weekthat brought this to my attention.First, I took someone out tolunch. That in itself is not out-standing. My wife tells me I amout to lunch all the time.Have you ever tried to impresssomeone by taking them out tolunch and insist on paying forlunch? That is exactly what I didthis past week. Why I ever try toimpress anyone is beyond mywife’s wildest imagination, but Itry, much to her chagrin.With a couple of hours to spare,my friend called me. ImmediatelyI set into action a plan to meet himat the restaurant for lunch – onme.We had a grand time catchingup on each other’s life. Personally,I was thrilled to Catch Up onsomething. Unfortunately, Ithought I was on a roll with hamand cheese. It was delicious toenjoy this brief time if only for amoment, but all good things doend.Things were about to turn ugly.No, someone did not bring me amirror. Instead, the affable wait-ress brought me the check.Normally, this would not be aproblem. I would accept the checkafter some friendly banter with thewaitress complaining about theamount and threatening not to tipher and she threatening to tell mywife. We all smiled and then ithappened.I casually reached around to myback pocket to extract my walletcontaining my credit card withwhich I would pay the check. Myback pocket was as empty as apolitician’s promises.At first, a slight streak of panicraced through my person causingme to freeze in petrifying fear. Myfirst thought, I had someone else’strousers on. But whose? More im-portant, where was the man wear-ing my trousers?I smiled one of those smiles thatsays, “Oops, I’m in trouble but Idon’t want anyone to know.”My friend sensed somethingwas wrong; friends are like that.Looking at me he said, “Is any-thing wrong?”Being the truthful person I am,I said, “Wrong? What could bewrong? We’ve just enjoyed a greattime together. No, nothing’s wrong. Absolutely nothing is wrong.”
The illusive art of catching up
One problem with friends isthey always know when you arelying. My friend was no different.He just looked at me and said,“OK, what’s wrong?”I may have trouble catching upbut I have no trouble whatsoeverbeing caught with my pants down.Well, maybe not quite down butcertainly empty. Nothing is sadderthan a man wearing emptytrousers.“Did you forget your wallet?” myfriend asked with delight dancingin his eyes.He happily paid the tab but Iwill never live it down.The second incident also had todo with my wallet. Although thistime, I did not forget my wallet.I had an early morning meetingacross town. I knew my car wasrunning on fumes but no need toworry. I left the house earlyenough to stop and gas up.Pulling out of my driveway, I no-ticed the gas gauge was lower thanI remembered it being the nightbefore. A tinge of terror gripped mymind and I earnestly prayed Iwould get to the gas station ontime.I sighed with relief as I ap-proached a gas station. The stationhad just opened and the sign onthe pump informed me I needed topay for the gas before pumping it.No problem. I ambled in, pre-sented my credit card and pur-chased $20 worth of gas. There isa good feeling associated with aschedule well in hand. I glanced atmy watch and noticed I was twominutes ahead of schedule.With a whistle on my lips andair between my ears, I got into mycar and drove away.Two miles later, I glance at thegas gauge and noticed it had notmoved. I tapped the gauge andnothing happened. At that time,the car sputtered and coughedominously.Then, like a bolt of lightening, itstruck me. I had paid for the gasand drove away without pumpingit into my car. By this time, the carengine stopped and I had justenough momentum to pull to theside of the road.I sat there a few minutes pon-dering my dilemma. I knew what Ihad to do but I did not want to doit. Slowly, I picked up my cellphone and dialed the dreadednumber. The phone rang and in amoment, I heard myself speakinginto the phone, “Honey, can you…”Waiting for my wife to bring acan of gas I thought of a verse of scripture. “Therefore to him thatknoweth to do good, and doeth itnot, to him it is sin” (James 4:17KJV).Good intentions must be accom-panied with appropriate action.
