Saturday

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

~Acts 1:8~

This tells us to share our faith with others around the world, not just our friends and neighbors.  That is our “mission”.
  • Mr. “Cete” did not get additional blood yesterday, but will get it Monday if the plans don’t change.  Please keep Mr. “Cete” and “Miss” Ruby in your prayers.
  • Read and  Write the Bible Today – “Abiding in Christ” – Ephesians 3:20
  • VBS, Vacation Bible School, signs are popping up all around.  Please take note of the dates and locations so the little ones in your world don’t miss out.  The children can’t make it to VBS if you don’t go out of your way to get them there!
  • Schools are ending for 2018-2019.  That means lots of energetic and fast moving boys and girls are riding bikes and playing ball each day.  Pay special attention when you drive!
  • Have a great Saturday.  Don’t get too hot!

Wednesday

Yesterday, I expressed my uncertainty about some things in the future.  I understand prayer and how God answers our prayers, but my question seemed to take God out of the plan.  Someone who was here said I should pray about it.  This seemed like an easy and obvious answer.  This is the verse that showed up today.  She surely was right!

“If you want to know what God wants you to do, ask him, and he will gladly tell you . . .

But when you ask him, be sure that you really expect him to tell you.” 

~James 1:5-6 TLB~

 

 

 

Adrian Phillips‘ angiogram left some unanswered questions so more testing was scheduled for last night.  This afternoon, the doctor will tell the results and his decision.  Surgery may even happen.  Pray for answers for the doctor so he will make the best decision.  Pray for Adrian and his family as they face a day of medical uncertainty.

 

 

I learned yesterday that Mr. Ed and “Miss” Jeanette Maghee‘s house burned and they are building a smaller home in the back.  Pray for this couple and their family as they make big decisions and changes to their “normal” life.
