Lottie Moon Christmas Offering – Week of Prayer –  Day 6

 

Reminder

  • Cook and freeze some frozen food for a family that is very appreciative to the support.
  • Bring food to my Sunday School classroom before Sunday School this week.

 

 

I know and serve God who takes care of me daily and will continue to do so.  I have no doubt about that.  I hope you can say the same  thing.  If not, fine someone who can help you find God and lead you to trusting Him.  Then.  you will be able to sing, “I Know Who Holds Tomorrow” and feel confident you do and He will.

A member of the family contacted me last night.  As of this time,  I have no additional information.

It is with heavy hearts that we let you know that our son, husband, brother, and brother-in-law, Dr. Reggie Sanders, passed away on Saturday night at 11:11 pm at Ochsner Hospital in New Orleans. Services are pending. Reggie was a rock for us, his patients, his medical practice, his church family, and his many NOLA social club friends. We will miss his wit, his wisdom, and his unconditional love.

This is for those of you who know/knew the Osborn family of Roseland.

December Scripture Writing Plan

I told you yesterday, I was going to start this today.  I hope you have a notebook or journal so you can do this with me.  The plan is to copy some verses (about half a page) each day. Then, if you choose, you can write your own thoughts about the verses.  It’s optional to write your thoughts.

December 1 – Isaiah 7: 14-17

Monday

“Finally, brethren, pray for us,

that the word of the Lord may run swiftly

and be glorified,

just as it is with you.”

~2 Thessalonians 3:1, NKJV~

( I thought this was an appropriate scripture for the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering week.  It sounds like what missionaries would say to us if they visited in our homes/churches.)

Gloria Gill had a conversion of her heart.  It is back in rhythm.  If all went well last night, she will be back at home today.

Elaine Tolar Doucette will be having surgery Wednesday morning.  Please keep her and her family in your prayers.

Joey and Rory let us follow some very difficult days.  Your heart will be touched when you read this.                                 http://thislifeilive.com/braver-than-me/

Scripture Writing

Starting tomorrow, I will give you a new option, scripture writing.  You’ll need a new notebook or journal.  I will give you a list of verses to write each day.  The first one is only four verses and takes about half a page/less than ten minutes.  I think you will enjoy reading and writing the December scriptures about the birth of Jesus.  Be ready to write tomorrow.

Today, I’m thankful I don’t have to worry about coming “face to face” with Jesus one day.  I hope that as I step up that day that someone like Tennessee Ernie Ford is singing a solo such as “Face to Face with Christ, My Savior”.

How do you feel about coming face-to-face with Jesus?

Thankfulness: Day 29

Many people are depressed at one or more times of their lives. especially the holiday season.  God is always there and hoping they will reach for “Higher Ground”.  He’s always willing to lift them up.

May this Lord’s Day be special to you.
