“Teach a youth about the way he should go;
even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
~Proverbs 22:6, HCSB~
Continue to pray for Jimmy Schwartz and Mrs. Katherine Sanders who are at North Oaks. Thank God for all the qualified medical people at church yesterday who stepped up to help when needed. What a blessing to have had them there to begin helping immediately.
Mrs. Barbara Erwin is having some problems walking. Pray she only overdid it last week and that she doesn’t have a bigger problem with her artificial hip.
The Beth Moore study of James is in week two. Last night four additional people joined us. I’m already looking forward to the Thursday night group.
Thought for the Day: Storms of life
The following quote comes from Kim Sherer:
“One night while my young son, Ryan, was sleeping, a storm began brewing outside. After a loud clap of thunder, I heard him wake up so I headed toward his room to comfort him. He asked me to stay with him until he fell asleep. As I lay there I realized he hadn’t asked me to make the storm go away, but to stay with him. How many times, I wondered, have I asked God to take away the storms of life, when instead I need to ask him to stay with me and help me weather them more peacefully?”
What a beautiful thought!
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)
Father, we do indeed pray for your comforting presence in the storms of our lives. As much as we might desire for the storms to go away, it is much important to us that you remain with us and see us through the storms. Thank you for your assurance that you will do that for us. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Have a great day!
