Pages from the Past: Ask and You Will Receive

“Ask and you shall receive” is not a conditional phrase: It is a promise. 
Jesus doesn’t say we will get what we asked for, but what we will receive is what promote our full joy (and ultimately Heaven: to be God—pure joy—by participation, which we were made for).
“Ask and you will receive,” so be open to it.

"Pages from the Past" are randomish excerpts from my old journals. I process things in writing, so there were a lot of volumes, but here and there I found notes that were still pertinent or helpful. I got rid of the books (hello, shredder!) and typed up the things I wanted to save, whether for myself (mostly) or to share.
