He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds.
How appropriate! God knew the need was going to be in southeast LA when He directed this verse be the one to be shared today! Only God!!!

- “Bringing Light into Darkness” – http://odb.org/2016/08/16/bringing-light-into-darkness/ Many people in SE Louisiana see the events of the last week as only darkness. We need to take the light to them in any way we can – food, water, blankets, working on their homes, providing a place for showers, child care, chaplains, etc. Get involved!
- In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. ~Matthew 5:16~
- “This Little Light of Mine”
We all can be the “light” during these days of natural disaster. Let you light shine! Thanks to all the area churches and other organizations who are letting their lights shine for Jesus!
