Sunday Music Time

 No music in this post today but I thought it suiting for today's thoughts.  I do not know who wrote this so I can give no credit so I will give a HatTip to the one who sent it to me, Mrs. Ticker.


Freddy and the Lord stood by to  observe a baseball game. The Lord's team was playing Satan 's  team.

The Lord's team was at bat, the score  was tied zero to zero, and it was the bottom of the 9th inning  with two outs.

They  continued to watch as a batter stepped up to the plate  named 'Love.'

swung at the first pitch  and hit a single, because 'Love never  fails.'

The next batter was named Faith, who  also got a single because Faith works with Love.

The next batter up was  named Godly Wisdom. Satan  wound up and threw the first pitch.

Godly  Wisdom
 looked it over and let it pass: Ball one. Three more pitches and  Godly  Wisdom walked because he never swings at what Satan  throws.

The bases were now loaded. The Lord  then turned to Freddy and told him He was now  going to bring in His star

Up  to  the plate  stepped Grace .. Freddy said,  'He sure doesn't look like much!'

Satan 's whole team  relaxed when they saw Grace  .

Thinking he  had won the game, Satan wound up and fired his first pitch.

To the shock  of everyone, Grace hit the ball harder than anyone had ever seen!

But Satan was  not worried; his center fielder let very few get by.

He went up for the ball, but it went  right through his glove, hit him on the head and sent him crashing  on the ground;

the roaring  crowds went wild as the ball continued over the fence . . for a  home run!

The Lord's team  won!

The Lord then asked Freddy if he knew  why Love,  Faith  and Godly  Wisdom 
could get on base but  couldn't win the game. Freddy answered that he didn't know  why.

The Lord explained, 'If your love, faith and wisdom had won the  game, you would think you had done it by yourself. Love, Faith and  Wisdom will get you on  base but only My Grace  can get you Home:

'For by
Grace are you saved,  it is a gift of God; not of works, lest any man should boast.'  Ephesians 2:8-9

Psalm 84:11, 'For the Lord  God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no  good thing will He withhold from those who walk  uprightly.'

Ticker - I was looking for something with music - perhaps I should have hummed Amazing Grace as I read your post.

Thanks. :=)
