Cast all your anxiety on him

because he cares for you.

~1 Peter 5:7 (NIV)~


Yesterday was a difficult weather day.  Thankfully, we in this area did not have any significant problems, but hundreds of people in areas close to our area did.  Please pray for them and then work to help they in they way God wants you to help – prayer, finances, clean-up, rebuilding, yard work, food, etc.  Ask.  God will lead you.

I’m thankful to hear that several local churches have new staff members this week.  May God richly bless both the staff members and the churches.

Continue to pray for Mrs. Catherine Yarborough and her family.  She is in Hood Memorial.

Today, as many people begin a new work week, let’s pray for them as they face their usual challenges and as new ones arise.  May each Christian allow God to shine through them each day.

For those who do not work, may the week present opportunities to share their faith.  May there be boldness in each opportunity.
