“I have told you these things,

so that in me you may have peace. In this world

you will have trouble. But take heart!

I have overcome the world.”

~John 16:33~

Today’s Prayer Focus

Today, let’s pray for all those who will be packing shoeboxes around the world in the coming weeks. Thank God for the efforts and funds put into collecting items and for the child who will receive it. Pray for the children to learn about Jesus and to take Him into their hearts.

Thankfulness – Day 5

Today, I am thankful for all the people, some volunteers and some paid workers, who came into Louisiana to help following Hurricane Ida and other storms that have caused so much destruction. More than that, I am thankful that even though many people lost trees, they did not lose houses and lives! I’m also thankful people have learned how to stay home and protect themselves when the weather is so bad. It could have been so much worse!
