Like Elijah Ministry
We want to go out "Like Elijah!"

Then it came about as
they were going along &
talking, that behold, there
appeared a chariot of fire
& horses of fire which
separated the two of
them, & Elijah went up by
a whirlwind to heaven.
2 Kings 2:11
I Want To Go Out Like Elijah

With a whirlwind to fuel my
chariot of fire
And when I look back on the
stars
It'll be like a candlelight in
Central Park
And it won't break my heart
to say goodbye

SNOTMYYOB
Written by Doris Bookhart from
Trinity Baptist Church, Bartlesville, OK.


Several houses along my walking route have privacy fences around their property,
excluding the city's right of way. Most of the owners maintain the right of way because it
enhances their own property, but there's one stubborn man who has a jungle outside of
his fence. I'm afraid to walk too close for fear of snakes crawling out. He seems to be
determined to do only what is absolutely necessary and not one iota more. He's a
perfect example of the old joking comment, 'snotmyyob'.

I read the account in Nehemiah listing the ones repairing the wall of Jerusalem, and
what section they are working on. I thought of this man with the jungle when I read of
one family who repaired their assigned section of the wall, even though they faced
opposition and ridicule from their leaders. They were within their rights to stop there,
but instead they found another section and must have volunteered to repair it as well.
We could use this same go get 'em attitude in our churches today. Instead of being
satisfied that we did what we were asked to do, we should be looking for some place
else to be of use after we're finished. The wall will go up much faster if we stop saying,
'snotmyyob'.

"So the wall was finished in the twenty and fifth day of the month Elul, in fifty and two
days...when all our enemies heard thereof...they were cast down in their own eyes: for
they perceived that this work was wrought of our God (Nehemiah 6:15-16)."

Love,
Doris
