Today’s Thought

As I watched the chaos that took place in Ferguson, Missouri last night, I couldn’t help but pray for that community.  Just because we may be far removed from there doesn’t take away our responsibility to pray for peace to replace the depravity that took place.  It doesn’t matter whether we agree or disagree with the grand jury findings, as believers we should pray for that community.  God bless!

 

 

Today’s Thought

♫ Oh love of God, How rich and pure, How measureless and strong, It shall forever more endure, The saints and angels song. ♫  I woke up in the middle of the night singing this chorus to this song The Love of God.  We need to be so thankful for the love that is extended to us by God.  It is an unconditional everlasting love.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

♫ Peace, peace, wonderful peace, coming down from the Father above. Sweep over my spirit forever I pray. In fathomless billows of love. ♫ It seems that the world around us is experiencing chaos as never before. People everywhere are calling for peace. But, the kind of peace the chorus to this song is talking about is an inward peace, found in the depths of our spirit, that only God can give! I trust you have that peace. If you don’t get in God’s Word and spend some time with the Father so you can receive that peace! God bless!

Today’s Thought

“There are only two times to praise the Lord, when you feel like it and when you don’t!” mnw We don’t always feel like praising the Lord, but it’s essential to having the presence of the Holy Spirit present in our lives! I have found if I praise the Lord it allows me to look beyond what ever circumstances I may be facing at that moment. Praise also has a way of turning around the attitude of our hearts. Psalm 100:4 (NIV) Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him, and praise His name. Let’s get our praise on at all times; whether we feel like it or not! God bless!

Today’s Thought

♫ He’s real, He’s real, I know He’s real, He has made me whole, He’s real, He’s real, I can feel His love down deep in my soul. ♫  This is the chorus to the first song I ever wrote.  I was going through a difficult time when God dropped these words into my heart.  I’m so thankful still today that He is so real.  I trust you have experienced this same “realness” that I have.  If not, accept Jesus today into your life and you can.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

Isaiah 59:19 So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.  It is so easy to feel overwhelmed at times.  But, we as believers can be assured that the Spirit of the Lord will fight for us.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

♫ When I feel discouraged and think my life in vain, It’s then I tend to murmur and of my lot complain, Then I think of Jesus and all He’s done for me, Then I cry oh rock of ages hide thou me. ♫  How often do we allow ourselves to become discouraged and wallow in self pity?  Jesus provided all we would ever need at Calvary.  So when discouragement begins to come and the difficulties we may face overwhelm us, let’s turn to the Cross and the protection already afforded to us.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

We are in another “Lord’s Day”.  There are many today that think it’s not necessary to get together with other believers for worship.  I believe if we are able we should obey the scripture that says; “Forsake not the assembling of yourselves together as thee manner of some is, even as we see the day approaching”.  The day is the soon return of Jesus to take us to our Heavenly home.  Are we ready?  Let’s find our way to church this morning!  God bless!
