“Whoever walks in integrity walks securely,
but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out.”
~Proverbs 10:9 (NIV)~
Read the Bible in 2020 – November 9
Thankfulness – Day 9
Today, I am thankful for holidays. They cause us to step-up and do a little more. There’s cooking, cleaning, company, and lots of things to do. That’s part of the anticipation. The list can be expanded to include family, friends, memories, pictures, hugs (maybe not so much this year), family recipes, new recipes, traditions, etc. These are the rewards. After being limited in many ways this year due to the pandemic, I trust you will be able to have some special holidays. May they revive your spirit and encourage you to GIVE of yourself for the remainder of 2020. Whatever the holidays look like at your house, make than special in some way for those you love the most.
Today’s prayer focus is on the many people who will have no family members to celebrate the holidays with this year. Pray for them. You may have the opportunity to “put your feet to your prayers” this year. It is an awesome opportunity.
FBC, Kentwood had online services only again yesterday. Despite all the issues, we had two guest speakers yesterday. First, Joe Hutto of the Hillsdale area preached yesterday. He is the son-in-law of Bro. Darryl Miller. Last night, Boyd Hatchel, our son-in-law, shared about missions. He currently lives in Richmond, Virginia and serves on the global research team of the International Mission Board. If you missed these messages, I hope you will take the opportunity today to view them on Facebook or YouTube.

Yes, the virus is continuing to control some of the church opportunities, but God and His work through guest speakers, empty pews, sickness of staff members and church members, etc. God’s love, power, and message are limitless!
