Hi, this is Ashley T. Lee Podcast.

Join me to hear the Bible read line by line and explained. Listen weekly to Ashley T. Lee Podcast. Your chosen Truth Network Podcast is starting in just a few seconds. Enjoy it.

Share it. But most of all, thank you for listening to the Truth Podcast Network. This is the Truth Network. Welcome to Truth Talk Live. All right, let's talk. A daily program powered by the Truth Network. This is kind of a great thing, and I'll tell you why. Where pop culture, current events, and theology all come together.

Speak your mind. And now, here's today's Truth Talk Live host. Welcome to Truth Talk Live. This is Peter Rosenberger, guest hosting today. Glad that you are with us.

Truth Talk Live 866-348-7884. I appreciate very much you all let me step in on this lovely hot Wednesday across most of the country. Not where I am, but I was just back in the east, in South Carolina with some family over the weekend. It was so hot there and it's getting even hotter. I mean, when you've got to have a spatula to remove your clothing, it is hot. And I've forgotten what the humidity is like.

I live in Montana now. And so, I left all that humidity behind. People out here ask me, what's it like, the humidity in the south?

And I say, well, wash your clothes, put them in the dryer for ten minutes and then put all of them on. And that's what it feels like. And I was sitting there over the weekend and I was like, my goodness, did I really grow up and live like this? Because where I am now up in the Rockies in Montana, it's much different. In fact, we just had an inch of snow yesterday. So I'm sorry for all of you all who are baking, but please stay cool and stay hydrated. It was really quite warm.

The catfish were already fried when we caught them. It was pretty warm. I'm glad you're with us. My show is carried every weekend on the Truth Network. It's called Hope for the Caregiver. It's a program for family caregivers.

That's what I do. I've been a caregiver now for about four decades for a wife who has severe medical challenges, 86 surgeries, both legs amputated, 100 plus doctors have treated her in 13 hospitals, and it just continues to go. And along the way, I've learned a few things about life, love, faith, God, disappointments, all kinds of things. And I offer them to my fellow caregivers as a way of giving a lifetime of experience to offer a lifeline. And if you are that person that is struggling right now as you take care of somebody, I'm glad you're here. And if you're not, this show, you're going to get something out of it. If you have no idea what it's like to be a caregiver, you're going to get something out of what I'm saying today. But the show is for those folks who are putting themselves between a chronically impaired loved one and even worse, disaster.

That's really what I do. This is my journey, and I see it so much and expansively across the country, across the world. We have people that tune into our program from literally all parts of the world.

My program is also on the Truth Network podcast, and we are downloaded in over 100 countries. And caregiving is one of those things that's kind of universal. It's the human condition. If you love somebody, you will be a caregiver.

If you live long enough, you will need one. And that's what I do. And in the process, I see things that apply across the board to us. The principles that we learn as caregivers, they're all covered in Scripture. And you guys are used to this program where you hear the things of God and the things that are going on in our country and across the world, and you hear them in context with Scripture. And that's the point of what we do. So I'd love to have you be a part of this program.

Like I said, if you want to call in, 866-34-TRUTH. And I like to sometimes go to the caregiver keyboard. I think I'm the only one that probably does that to have a keyboard hooked up of a pianist by training. And do you like hymns? Do you like the old hymns? Well, there's one that I particularly like a lot, and I hum it to myself and I play it. And then my wife is a no kidding singer.

I mean, don't take my word for it. Go out and listen to her. PeterRosenberger.com. And I love to hear her sing. But it's this one right here. If you know it, let me see if you know it.

You can call in and tell me you know it and if you like it and why it's meaningful to you. But I'm going to step over here. Alright, here we go. Ready? I'll jump right in on the bridge. You know this one?

Those are high dollar chords. If you know that one, I'd love to hear from you. 866-348-7884. And there's a reason I play that and I'll bring that up later on in the program.

866-348-7884. I never get tired of playing hymns. I've been playing them since I was a kid and I'm amazed how they stick with you. I've worked with a lot of folks over the years who are in nursing homes who are having all kinds of challenges going on cognitively and yet I'll play a hymn and they'll start mouthing the words.

They'll start singing the words. I've seen it over and over again and it's something that's important to put into our hearts and our spirits now while our minds are still somewhat working. Because one day when our minds decline and this is what's happening, our bodies are living longer but our minds are not.

And are we preparing ourselves for that? And that's what this hymn, that particular hymn speaks to of how do you prepare your mind? And what does scripture say about our minds? Let this mind be in you, which is also in Christ Jesus.

And do not be conformed to this word but be transformed by what? The renewing of your mind. Do not lean on your own understanding but in all your ways acknowledge him. He will direct your paths.

You see the theme there. So what are you doing about your mind right now? You can take all kinds of ginkgo, beloko, whatever. I don't even know how you pronounce that stuff.

You can take super beats or whatever you want. All that kind of stuff. But there's only one thing that's eternal and that's the word of God. Heaven and earth shall pass away but my word shall remain. And if you're filling your mind with the things of God, it will never return void.

Never. And it will prepare you for whatever, whatever you're going to deal with, that will anchor you in the midst of all the mail storms of life that come our way. And they will and they do. And we kind of live our lives thinking, oh no, everything's good, we're okay now. But in reality we need to prepare that there are very difficult things coming. We have a nation that is 35 trillion dollars in debt, for example. You think that's sustainable? You think that's going to keep going without some kind of collapse? No. So let's prepare ourselves now.

Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, whatever, it doesn't matter. Prepare yourself, thinking of the things of God and we're going to talk about that hymn a little bit more when we come back. This is Peter Rosenberg and this is Truth Talk Live, 866-348-7884.

We'll be right back. Welcome back to Truth Talk Live. This is Peter Rosenberg and this is the time for you to talk about things going on around the country, around the world, in the light of, in the context of God's Word. What does God have to say about it?

You just heard John Erickson Tada talk about that. What does God have to say about all these things? And that's the question that I think should be foremost on our minds as we look at all the things happening. You can look at any headline today and it's very unsettling. People are very troubled by what's going on. We've got debt. We've got a very contentious election going on. You know, we've got vitriol on levels that we've never even seen before since the Civil War, I don't think. And are we providing salt and light to the world? Are we speaking calmness to people? Are we doing these things? And that's what I have with this hymn today, by the way, that I played at the caregiver keyboard.

I'm going to give you one more test on this. See if you know this hymn. If you know it, just tell me what it is, tell me why you like it. And I love the hymns and, you know, Stu always thinks it's funny that I have a keyboard hooked up. So I'll go here. I'll give you the verse on this one.

And then it goes to the bridge. Alright, if you know that one, 866-348-7884, 866-34-TRUTH. If you know that because it has great bearing to what I'd like to talk about in the next block when we come back from the bottom of the hour.

But I want to tell you something right now. It's on my Substack page caregiver.substack.com. My wife had a pretty big back surgery in Denver earlier this year. Well, actually it's November, but she just spent a couple months in the hospital surgery. Neurosurgery, the biggest one that they do for this sort of thing. And to, from what they told me, she's the first double amputee they've done this on.

So it's a stressful journey to say the least. But I noticed something about this surgeon. Great guy. I got to know him through this process.

He's actually operated on her three times. Wonderful guy. And yet I couldn't tell you the name of his wife, his children, where he lives. I don't have a cell phone number. I don't have any of those things. I've spent time with him, but I don't have these. We're not close personal friends. I've never seen his diploma. I don't know what his academic history was other than, you know, where he went to school, where he did a fellowship, that sort of stuff you can get off of a CV.

There's none of that kind of information, that bio information. And yet I allowed this guy and his team to go into this room that I was not permitted to go into and use tools that are very frightening to look at for me. I'm a pianist, not a surgeon.

And do ghastly things from my perspective to my wife in order to help heal her back. I mean, I didn't want to watch. I didn't want to be there. And I barely know this guy in reality. And yet I'm trusting him to do this.

And I remember when he told me, he looked at me and said, look, Peter, it's going to be a long day. You don't need to hang out in the waiting room, go back to your hotel, just watch a movie, relax. We've got her. We've got this. You rest.

We've got her. Now that is a human being on this planet that I do not know, a fallen human being that I do not know all that particularly well. And yet I did exactly what he said.

Why? Because there were credentials there to give me that trust, to give me that confidence that he's got my wife and he's going to take care of the problem and he's going to deal with it and he's competent and he knows what he's doing. And if I'm willing to trust a fallen human being who I really don't know all that well, would I be willing to trust God who I can know far better? The invitation is there to know him. The question is, do I bother to look and to read and to spend time with him?

But how much more so can God provide that assurance? Hey, hey, you go rest. I've got her. Do I rest? Do you rest? Do you have a loved one in your life who's an alcoholic, who's an addict, who has mental illness, who has cognitive impairments?

Do you have a child with autism? Do you have things like that in your life and you stay keyed up about it? Are you able to turn that over to a God that you really can know and more importantly a God who really knows you and says, don't worry, I've got him. I've got her.

Can we do that? And there may be some things where it's rather painful to have to watch. It's rather intense, ghastly things. I don't want to watch surgery. I don't know about you, I don't. Some of you all may, some of you may have great medical training.

I don't want to do it. You know, and we were understandably nervous before the surgery. But you know, the surgeon wasn't.

You know why? Because it wasn't his first time. It was our first time and it wasn't his first time. It was the first time for the hospital to operate on her as a double amputee and that was the first time. But it wasn't his first time doing the surgery.

That part, that affects the recovery of how to help her get up with physical therapists and so forth. But the surgery itself, no, it wasn't his first time. And as God takes you through some of the things in your life, and they may be very painful, it's not his first time. Does that give you reassurance? Because as we look across the landscape of the country, we see all these things that are unsettled.

Think about that. The tendency is for people to freak out. I've been watching all these people say, what's going to happen if Joe Biden gets reelected? What's going to happen if Trump gets reelected? And everybody's got these doomsday scenarios.

Everybody's just freaking out and I don't know how much of that is real and how much is that just to get people to watch them and say the most outrageous things. But I would point you back to scripture. And as Christians, do we model that a sovereign God who's in charge of all of this, do we really believe that? And if so, how would people know?

Do we rest in it? How would people know? What does that look like?

How do we model that? You just heard, again, Johnny taught us one little thing she does. She does these things all the time and she sends me notes when she's getting ready to record them and to ask for prayers so her voice will endure through that because it's rather strenuous on her. She has to sit strapped in her wheelchair now for 57 years. It'll be 57 years next month. It's on my birthday.

That's when her accident occurred and she and I usually, she sends me nice little cards for my birthday and I send her things for this to remind each other that God is faithful and that whatever I offer her is pitifully small, but I stand in awe with her and my wife for 40 years. The two of them, they got almost 100 years of suffering and yet they are both unswervingly convinced of the sovereignty of God who says, I've got this. I've got this. What about you? Did you need to hear a little bit of that today that, you know what, your Savior says to you through scripture, I've got this. Let's talk about that more when we come back. This is Peter Rosenberger, Truth Talk Live, 866-34-TRUTH.

We'll be right back. Truth Talk Live! You're listening to the Truth Network and TruthNetwork.com. Welcome back to Truth Talk Live. This is Peter Rosenberger, guest hosting. We're glad to have you with us. Truth Talk Live, 866-34-878-84, 866-34-TRUTH, if you want to be a part of the program. I have given you an opportunity here to guess the song because it fits into all that I am talking about today and pretty much across the board in what we're doing nationwide as we see these things unfolding.

I'm going to go one more time to the caregiver keyboard here. All right, if you know that one, and I'll tell you the guy that wrote the text from that is the same guy that wrote the music to It Is Well With My Soul. Philip Bliss wrote this and it's a wonderful hymn. I love the text, I love what it says, and I love the admonishment to us as believers to be able to speak this. We're talking about things that settle us down. There's a lot of kinetic stress going out there. We're all feeling it, we're all seeing it.

What do we do with it? We can't avoid the craziness of this world, but we can avoid becoming crazy because of it and reacting to it. Are we responsive or are we reactive? And these are topics that I deal with on my program every week, Hope for the Caregiver, but they apply to us even if we're not in a caregiving role right now. Like I said in the first block, if you love somebody, you will be a caregiver.

If you live long enough, you will need one. And how we deal with these things is going to communicate far more than anything else we do as believers. People watch us. People see how we respond. Do we trust in God's provision, in His faithfulness, in His sovereignty?

Or are we just basically saying, well, God, as long as I'm happy and feel good, you're going to get your breakthrough kind of stuff. That kind of stuff bores me. I really don't care for that at all. And I don't like health and wealth preachers.

I don't like any of that kind of stuff. I live in a much different world, and I have plumbed a different understanding of some of the things that you hear coming off of airwaves today. And I'm grateful that Stu and the Truth Network allowed me to do this, because I think so many people have been bludgeoned by people in church who said, oh, you know, what sin did you commit that this would happen? That's what happened to my wife. She was 17 years old when she got hurt. And when she woke up in the hospital three weeks later, you know, it was just pretty bad to see.

It was 40-some years ago. And as she was trying to take stock of her life, one lady came and said, what did you do that God would do this to you? She was 17. Corrie Ten Voon led my wife to the Lord. My wife was not a reprobate, and she was 17. And if God was in the business of having people who commit sins, have car wrecks, and lose their legs, well, my goodness, there'd be a lot of amputees around, wouldn't you say?

A lot more of them. That's the kind of stuff that I push against pretty hard. And it's horribly cruel to people who suffer. God has His own purpose in these things, and we're not going to always know them. But we can know Him, and we can know His voice. Scripture teaches this. And so when things happen to us, whether it's financial, whether it's physical, whether it's whatever, it doesn't matter, we will always deal with the painful impact of this broken world. Are we able to stand firm? Are we able to be settled in our spirit no matter what is going on? The apostle Paul says we could.

I can do all things through Christ, learning to be content. And so as you look at this election coming up in the fall and you see the debate coming up here and everybody's churning on that, I don't know how much you will follow politics. I'm kind of a junkie on this stuff, but I try to look at it from a different perspective. And I look at it, okay, what does Scripture teach about this? What does Scripture say about these sort of things?

And what is our response? And of course everything I do is filtered through the journey I've had as a caregiver now for four decades. And I can't help but ask myself these kinds of questions. And then I hear what's coming out of our pulpits and over the airwaves of ministers and so forth. And are we speaking with clarity to this? Are we pointing people to safety of what that looks like?

Or are we trying to pontificate or bloviate while they're struggling? I go back to the paramedics that saved my wife. Again, she was just 17. And she was trapped in her car bleeding by the side of the road. And all these paramedics came to help her to get her out of the car.

A bunch of truck drivers stopped to put out the fire. And none of them asked, you know, what's the matter with you? Why were you here?

What's the, you know, they just said, you know, what's your name? Hang on. Hang on, Gracie. We're going to get you to safety. You're not alone. We're here. We're going to get you to safety.

Hang on. Over and over and over again they said these words to her. By the way, I'm dropping hints of what this hymn is, if you know it. 866-348-7884. I can't help but notice that I'm not getting people calling that know this hymn.

And I'm going to have to do a lot more education on the hymnology here because if we don't know these hymns, I think we have, we have, well, I have strong feelings on the hymns. But they can't repeat the same words and they didn't try to do surgery on her in the car. They stabilized her and got her to safety where the surgeons could work with her. They dealt with all the aftermath once she was gotten to safety and stabilized.

Didn't know if she was going to live and never dreamed she'd walk again and much less go on to live the life she's lived, even though she's done it with severe disabilities and challenges. But the point is, in the moment of crisis, are we bludgeoning people or are we assuring people? Are we doing like what that surgeon said to me? Look, you rest.

I've got her. Are we saying to people it's okay for you to rest knowing that God has got her? He's not going to drop you. And He will lead us into some places that are pretty uncomfortable for us. And I learned a long time ago that God is not uncomfortable with our discomfort.

You know, He's not. And there are things that He's purposing and working in us for His glory, for good, for our good. It's hard to wrap our minds around that when you see some of the things that we have to see sometimes, particularly when you watch somebody suffer. It's hard. I get that.

I live that. And that's why I plunge myself deeper and deeper into this, okay, does this make sense? And I have yet to find, I find any time in my life where Scripture did not sustain, equip, and settle me down. I found plenty of things that did the opposite. But this is what I found. This is my experience, not my opinion, my experience. There's nowhere else to go. And when you deal with something that's chronic, I've got a theory on this.

See what you think of my theory. When you stub your toe, you remember the last time you stubbed your toe? When you stub your toe, what did it feel like? Can you remember what it felt like?

No, you can't. You remember that it did hurt, but you cannot remember the pain. You cannot recall pain.

You can recall that it did hurt, that you didn't like it, but try to actually recall the sensation of pain. Now, when it did happen, what was your reaction? Did you yell? Did you cry?

Did you swear, if you're by yourself? What was your reaction? For some of us, the reaction is going to be different, whatever, but you had a reaction, but you're not still reacting.

Why? Because the pain subsided. Some pain is so violent to us that our reactions are also violent. And sometimes it can be so much, and this is like, for example, with my wife, when she had this wreck, she went into shock. It's almost like our brains just can't comprehend the level of trauma, and they just shut down. Sometimes when a divorce happens, or a child dies, or other just horrific things that happen in our life, it's a shock to our system, and it's hard for us to function normally. And with the help, over time, that pain subsides, and we start reintegrating back into life.

The grass grows over the grave. The ink dries on the divorce certificate. The wound heals. What about our reactions?

They're put on the shelf. Well, what happens when we react from a spiritual level? We say, why are you allowing this to happen, God? Like that lady said to my wife, well, what did you do that God would do this to you, kind of thing. What about those reactions? They subside too, but we never really dealt with them. We didn't really answer the question, did we?

Why would God do this? But when the pain lessens, the reaction stops, and we stop asking those kinds of questions. And when we come back, I'm going to tell you what happens when the pain doesn't stop, when it's perpetual, when it's chronic. I'm going to tell you where life is, where anger is, where solid ground is. This is Peter Rosenberger, the Truth Talk Live, 866-34-TRUTH.

We'll be right back. Truth Talk Live! You're listening to the Truth Network and truthnetwork.com.

Welcome back to Truth Talk Live. This is Peter Rosenberger, guest host today, peterrosenberger.com. If you want to find out more about what I do, why I do it, how I do it, and where I do it. So we'd love to have you check it out.

PeterRosenberger.com. Todd in Michigan says that he thinks he knows the hymn, but he wants one more crack at it. One more crack at it, Todd. All right, you ready?

I am. All right, here we go. Wonderful words of God.

There you go. There you go, Todd. Beautiful words. Pastor's call, right? Wonderful words, wonderful words of God. Wonderful words of God. Do you know that one, Todd? Evidently you do.

Why is it important to you? Oh, it just reminds me of the church I was saved in, and I knew this was going to happen. That's why I didn't call. Oh, it's okay.

Break it up, man. It's okay. It's all right.

It's all good. No pastor passed away, but he loved Jesus, and I could see that, and I followed his lead, and I don't regret it. And the old hymns just do this to me. We have done a terrible disservice to this next generation by not teaching these hymns, and I'm trying to correct that one hymn at a time, and I love them. So here's the funny aspect.

Sorry, I didn't mean to interrupt. But I play drums in a contemporary church now, and I can't agree with you more. The lyrics of those new songs, and I just not like the old hymns. Well, and I throw in some of thoseā€¦ There was a time when you get thrown out of church for playing the chords I play, and I love doing that.

I throw in diminished chords, everything else. You know this one? Oh, how I love Jesus. You know that one? I'm not sure. I should. It sounds familiar.

You should know that one. But you throw in these chords. Yeah, but throw in these chords there, Todd. How I love Jesus.

Oh, that just sweetens it. So you could get arrested for some of those chords, Todd. Well, I'm glad you know that because I love this hymn, and I love what it says. Sing them over and over again, wonderful words of life. Because when you are dealing with, and this is what I was talking about on the last block. When you're dealing with things that will not go away, they will not change.

Your pain is constant every day as I deal with this thing with my wife. She's got to hear words of life. I've got to hear words of life. I need people to speak those words of life, and sometimes the hymns can just say them so much better than the words. If I'm faltering for words, somebody else has written better words than I could ever come up with. And I think it is incumbent upon us as believers to speak words of life.

Are we speaking words of life? Now obviously this is very near to you, Todd, because you're breaking up. Your voice falters when you think about how precious this is. What's going on in your life that has that level of tenderness?

That's a good question. You don't have to go into too deep a story. I know we're on the air here, so I don't want to expose you to anything.

But are there things that you're carrying that are that heavy? You know, like you brought up earlier, just let's be forced in the world. You know, I seem to get wrapped up in the politics and the social crud, you know, because I worry about my children, right? I have teenagers and an early 20, and this world's before them. I believe they're all saved, but I don't stop praying for them.

So I guess that's it, my children, my family. Well, keep speaking words of life to your children, over your children, with your children. I was talking to somebody the other day, it was kind of rather disappointing to hear this from a pastor. I said, you know, I never take for granted that people in the service know the gospel. And every sermon needs to clearly communicate the gospel. Every sermon, every sermon, Paul said, we preach in Christ crucified. The gospel, the gospel is the work of the cross. And he said, well, I'm pretty comfortable knowing the gospel.

And I looked at him and I said, well, I'm not. I got to hear it every day. I put a song on my CD, I need thee every hour that I play. And you know that old hymn, I need thee every hour? You know that one? No, I do not.

That one, I don't know. Todd, I know you're a drummer, but that's still no excuse. You're going to have to learn some hymns. You know, I play a little keys. Pardon me? I play a little keys. You've challenged me now. We're going to have to dig deep, because the next time I'm guest hosting, then we're going to have a test, Todd, to see how many more you know.

I'm just kidding. But I need thee every hour, because nobody's written a song that says, I need thee every minute. And I need to hear this over and over again. I take care of someone who suffers daily. She wakes up every day and she knows it's going to be a hard day, just like it was yesterday, if not harder.

And so she's counting on me to be able to speak into her situation, well, what about me? And one of my favorite stories in Scripture was when David was at Ziklek, and his own men were going to stone him. I don't know if you remember that story.

I do. It's in, I believe, 1 Samuel. And what did David do? They were all holding rocks.

The Amalekites had taken off all their families, their possessions, everything. They were holding rocks, ready to stone him. And David did what? He encouraged himself and the Lord. And my question to you, Todd, and myself, and everyone who's listening, are we encouraging ourselves in the Lord, and are we doing this for others? I live with a very harsh set of circumstances, and I promise you, it does not get easier if I'm bitter and resentful. The way I can carry this is because I speak wonderful words of life, beautiful words, wonderful words.

That's the only way. And I need people around me to do the same, whether we're dealing with an election, whether we're dealing with anything, Alzheimer's, whatever. Wonderful words, beautiful words of life. Are we doing this on a regular basis?

Are we using every opportunity we can to speak life to people? And that's the challenge. What do you like to play on your drums there? What's the song you like to play, Todd? Oh, holy, the song holy, again, these are all contemporary Christian songs. It's okay, I do play some contemporary, I write some contemporary ones, but I like to play them too.

We should get together. Are you pretty good? I must say humble.

No, you must state the fact. Are you pretty good? Can you keep a groove?

I can keep a groove. That's good because my wife makes fun of me. She calls me Indiana Peter in the Temple of Doom. Oh, goodness. I'm working on it.

Oh, goodness. Well, she's just a really good singer and I'm working on it. I suffer from a metrononitis, but I always love a good drummer who really knows how to tastefully play. And you play piano a little bit?

A little bit, yep, yep. Is your worship band pretty good at church? We won't tell anybody, just between you and me, Todd, we're not going to tell anybody else. Well, it's just, it's off and on. It used to be good, but there's been a big change in the church, so people have left and things are missing, and so we're just trying to accommodate. Well, here's what I say to that, and I'm going to run up against the clock, but I'll leave you with this, Todd.

Sure. When a team is in trouble, when a baseball team, football team, you don't get out of that by coming up with a trick play, you go back to the fundamentals. So tell your worship team to go back to the fundamentals. I love playing songs with a groove, and I've written songs like that to take old texts from hymns, and I've put great groove with them, and I love that. But we want to be teaching them with something with the music. We don't want to be doing 7-11 songs that just say 7 words 11 times.

You really want to teach them something, so go back to your team and say, let's pick out something that's, you know, go grab an Andre Crouch tube. You know, bless the Lord, oh my soul, you know that one. You know that one, don't you? You know that one, don't you? Ah. Todd!

No. Todd, all right, we're going to have to get Todd's name and number, and we're going to have to come up there and have a little education. We're going to have a conversation, Todd, I tell you that right now. Please!

Yes, I want to exchange, yes. You're going to have to knuckle down and start learning some songs here. Yes, yes. Go back to your team, go back to your worship team, and tell them, let's dig deep and let's find some songs, particularly scripture that's put to songs. And I don't care how great a groove it is, I mean, just make it good to fit the music. When you've got a song like, bless the Lord, oh my soul, and all that is with it. I mean, these are things that are really worthy of a good worship band just hunkering down on it, and I love that.

I love to be a part of that. Anyway, listen, they're fussing at me saying we're going to run out of time here, but Todd, I want you to know how much I appreciate you calling. I'm glad you knew that hymn, okay? I am for twelve. You were one for three today.

No, you were two, because you did know, oh how I love Jesus. So you were two for four today. Okay? So next time. Oh, we're going to get you next time. I don't know when they'll let me back on here again, but listen, I appreciate you calling. I really do, Todd, and thanks. I hope Michigan's not baking like the rest of the country today, but you guys stay cool, okay? Well, I'm sorry for that. It's a bit cooler where I live, and I'm just fine with it.

We're going to get down to the 30s tonight. Listen, I've got to go. This is Peter Rosenberger, Truth Talk Live. Thanks for letting me be a part of the program today. You can go out to PeterRosenberger.com and see what we do, why we do it, how we do it, and we'd love to hear from you. PeterRosenberger.com.
