Monday

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.

~2 Corinthians 4:6~

“This little light of mine. I’m going to let it shine.”

“Hide it under a bushel, no!”

“Shine all over Kentwood.”

“Let it shine ’till Jesus comes!”

Today, let’s pray for Debbie Wilkinson as she is at MD Anderson.  One test trial will end today and another test trial will begin.  Pray for Debbie to maintain her wonderful attitude and spirit!  Her “light” shines brightly every time I see her.
Last night at church, we talked about El Shaddai, which means “God is sufficient”.  He is!  If you doubt that, use your Bible, phone, or computer to look up verses that tell us God is sufficient.  Find some that speak to your heart and claim them for your own.  Write them in your Bible, around your house, and in your heart!
Two weeks ago, the lab tech who drew David’s labs gave his a bracelet that says “Never Give Up!”.  I wear it because it doesn’t fit him.
Pray for me as we go back today.  Pray that I might pray of each patient at the cancer center that I see.  May each one of them know that “God is enough” to meet every need they have!
Read and Write the Bible Today – Luke 6: 27-31
The Sunday morning church service from my church is available on the church’s Facebook page, “Kentwood First Baptist Church”.  It is available live at 10:30 on Sundays and stays there for you to see as you choose.  I always share it, so it is available on my FB page and the pages of several others.
There is “work in progress”, so please overlook any little problems you see.  They are being addressed so the final product is of good quality.  In the meantime, I know you can get the message and be blessed through the preaching and the singing.
Several other local churches are also broadcasting live, so check them out too.  You will be able to participate in “church” all week long.  I love to use and to see how others use technology to share Jesus with others.  You might find a way to do so too!

But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its rays. And you will go out and frolic like well-fed calves.

Shoeboxes don’t get packed in a big way in October/November unless shopping begins early.  Suggested items to look for now include small cars, small plastic animals, small stuffed animals, and small dolls.  Items can be left in the classroom next to the choir.  Thank-you for helping now and in the coming months.  One suggestion is to make some purchases each month, not to wait until the last minute.

 

 

 

Don’t forget about the associational WMU meeting at Greensburg at 10 this morning.

 

 

Prayers and praying friends mean more than you know to those around you.
