Tuesday

”[God] will not constantly accuse us, nor remain angry forever.

He does not punish us for all our sins; he does not deal harshly with us, as we deserve . . .

The LORD is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him.” 

~Psalm 103:9-10, 13 NLT~

I missed the WMU meeting at my own church yesterday.  I don’t have any details yet, but I have heard the meeting was a success.  I’m anxious to learn what I missed.  The next WMU meeting will be early in November at Kedron with Amite leading our attention to the World Day of Prayer.  I hope you can attend and pray with women from around the world that day.

 

 

My daughter-in-law brought me a hymnal being discarded from her church.  I am anxious to spend some time at the piano with it.  I see songs I haven’t sung in a long time and new songs I want to learn about.  When I opened it just now, it opened to “I’d Rather Have Jesus”, an oldie I have loved for years.

Isn’t that the way God works?  He took one man”s plan for this song and used it to change him, even more than the man’s son.  I know God used the song and the man to change many a person for the Lord!  I hope you find time to hear George Beverly Shea sing the song, as only he could.  Focus on how God wants to change you and how God has used the man and the song to change many people throughout the world.
