Thursday

“That they may all be one;

even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You,

that they also may be in Us,

so that the world may believe that You sent Me.”

~John 17:21, NASB~

Pray for Robbie Lynn and her family as she is receiving treatment at the hospital in Jackson.

Pray for Dan Turner as he continues to work to regain his strength and control.  Pray for his family and friends as they continue to encourage and aid him in many ways.

Pray for Mr. Bobby Lawson as he has work done by the dermatologist.

Pray for Mr. John Alan Blackwell, Mrs. Betty Catherine Hatcher, and others as they continue to make great effort to be in Sunday School each week.

http://moments.org/a-single-mothers-new-beginning/

I heard another report of VBS this week.  This one was at Kedron.  What a blessing VBS is to our children and grandchildren!  I’m so thankful for the efforts of people in all our area churches to give their all to VBS each summer.

Upcoming Camps – FBC, Kentwood

Now is a good time to pray for the youth and adults attending camps.  Pray for those participating in camp leadership who will guide our young people.  What an awesome experience for all!

Third Thursday Meeting – Tonight at our cabin at 6:30.  Everyone is invited.

Prayer Meeting (last night) – Thanks to James Rimes for leading.  The lesson on obedience was presented well, even if all the notes were in the other maroon Bible.  We are blessed with Godly men who are willing to share at any given opportunity.

Continue to be obedient to God and make a difference in lives “wherever you are planted”.

Don’t let your worries get the best of you;

Remember, Moses started out as a basket case. 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
Some people are kind, polite, and sweet-spirited 
Until you try to sit in their pews. 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
Many folks want to serve God,

But only as advisers.
*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
It is easier to preach ten sermons
 
Than it is to live one. 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
The good Lord didn’t create anything without a purpose, 
But mosquitoes come close.
 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
When you get to your wit’s end, 
You’ll find God lives there.
 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
People are funny; they want the front of the bus, 
Middle of the road, 
And back of the church. 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
Opportunity may knock once, 
But temptation bangs on the front door forever. 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
Quit griping about your church;
 
If it was perfect, you couldn’t belong.
 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
If a church wants a better pastor, 
It only needs to pray for the one it has.
 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
We’re called to be witnesses, not lawyers or judges. 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
God Himself doesn’t propose to judge a man until 
he is dead. So why should you?
 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
Some minds are like concrete
 
Thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.
 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
Peace starts with a smile.. 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
I don’t know why some people change churches; 
What difference does it make which one you stay home from? 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
Be ye fishers of men. You catch ’em – He’ll clean ’em. 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
Stop, Drop, and Roll won’t work in Hell. 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 

Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous. 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
Don’t put a question mark where God put a period. 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
Don’t wait for 6 strong men to take you to church.. 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
Forbidden fruits create many jams.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called.
 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
God grades on the cross, not the curve. 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
God loves everyone, 
But probably prefers ‘fruits of the spirit’ over ‘religious nuts!’ 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage. 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
He who angers you, controls you!
 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
If God is your Co-pilot, swap seats!

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
Prayer: 
Don’t give God instructions, just report for duty!
 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
The task ahead of us is never as 
great as the Power behind us.
 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
The Will of God never takes you to where the 
Grace of God will not protect you.
 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
We don’t change the message, 
The message changes us.
 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
You can tell how big a person is 
By what it takes to discourage him/her. 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* 
The best mathematical equation I have ever seen: 
1 cross + 3 nails = 4 given.

Thursday

“LORD, You have heard the desire of the humble;

You will strengthen their hearts.

You will listen carefully.”

~Psalm 10:17~

Pray for the world situation, especially our country.  Pray for politicians, voters, old, young, black, while, rich, poor, Christians, and unchristians.  Pray God will use all to make a better world for us all and to bring those who don’t know the Lord to sit at his table.

Pray for victims to man-made and natural disasters.  May we all do our best to keep ourselves and others stay safe.  Especially pray for the people of Texas who have faced the latest natural disaster.  May our disaster relief people be there to help them with meals, clean clothes, rebuilding, but mainly with their spiritual needs.

Mrs. Seymour, mother of two of my former students, Karen Joanne, and Becky, passed away last night.  Many of you may remember her as co-owner of a store of highway 16 between I-55 and highway 51.

I went to bed last night praying for the Jones family.  Read the latest posts and hear the heart of Gavin Jones.  Pray for peace for his thoughts and energy to face each day.

Devotional – Our Daily Bread – “I’m Sorry, Man”

http://odb.org/

As I ponder the good medical report I received Tuesday, I know all medical reports are not so positive.  Pray for each person visiting a doctor, because we never know when they might get a negative report.  Pray for those who will face that situation today.  Pray they will allow God to prepare their hearts for the near future and for eternity.  People in these situations are often very open to hearing God’s Word through us.  Take time to visit, call, pray, share a Scripture, etc. to help make their day a little lighter and their eternity much brighter.

Monday

Tuesday, I will be having a MRI and seeing a neurologist at Ochsner in New Orleans.  This is a check-up on my brain tumor which was addressed with gamma knife surgery a year and a half ago.  I look forward to seeing how much more my brain tumor has shrunk since I was there a year ago for my last check-up.  I know I don’t hurt like I did for years before I had the surgery!  Join me in expecting a good report tomorrow.  Thank God for doctors who have skills and technology to treat medical issues in ways that were not possible in the past.

Thursday, we will have our monthly gathering at the cabin.  Join us at 6:30.  Our last meeting was one of the greatest worship services which I have been blessed to attend.  Don’t miss the blessing waiting for you Thursday!  It’s easy to mark your calendar for the “Third Thursday” each month.  That way you don’t forget when we meet.
