Today’s Thought

I am so looking forward to being with family and friends this holiday season.  God has been so good to me this year.  Through some very difficult times He has remained faithful.  We so often take this season for granted.  With all that goes on, parties, etc., we get so caught up with celebrations that we neglect the One that made it all possible.  I’m not always a cliché person, but this one I will use; “Jesus is the reason for the season”.  Let’s include Him in all our celebrations.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

Sitting here in my office and looking at the date I was reminded that if my mother was still alive she would turn 93 today.  I wrote a song many years ago titled “Very Soon I’m Going Home”.  The second verse says; ♫ There are many precious loved ones who have gone on to that land, Saints of God who’ve received their reward, O how I long to greet them and fellowship once more, But most of all I want to see my precious Lord. ♫  With all that is happening in the world today I can’t help but believe that the time of renewed fellowship with loved ones who have graduated to Heaven isn’t that far off.  Are you ready to meet the Lord?  God bless!

Prayer Request from Gold City

All the group’s product was housed either on the bus or in the warehouse, and the salvageability of the product in the warehouse is not known at this time. Cause of the fire is under investigation.

Today’s Thought

♫ How rich I am since Jesus came my way, Redeemed my soul and turned my night to day, How very rich, How very rich I am……. ♫  I often find myself singing these words to the song “How Rich I Am”.  It is of course not referring to just a financial blessing, but to all the benefits that come with serving the Lord.  If you are a born again believer you are very rich too.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

Acts 10:34  Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:  This scripture reminds me of the song, It Is No Secret What God Can Do.  God doesn’t pick and choose who will accept His mercy and grace that was provided on by Jesus on Calvary.  It’s up to each individual as to whether they accept it or not.  So today, if you haven’t yet turned your heart and life over to God, now is a good time, He is ready to accept you.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

♫ I went to the enemies camp and I took back what he stole from me……he’s under my feet, Praise God he’s under my feet. ♫  We have the authority as believers to take back from the devil all he has stolen from us.  I often think also of a line from the song “Step Into The Water”;  ♫ It’s time we the people stand up for what is right… ♫.  The “church” has been passive too long.  We have seen many laws passed and stood idly by and did nothing while the forces of evil marched on.  It’s time to stand and be counted for what we believe in.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

♫ Thank you Lord for saving my soul, Thank you Lord for making me whole, Thank you Lord for giving to me, Thy great salvation so rich and free. ♫  With Christmas just ten days away, I can’t help but think about how blessed I am to still be alive to celebrate the season and to serve a living Savior.  Let’s not forget with all the hustle and bustle surrounding the holidays to take time to worship the One who came to give us life and give it more abundantly.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

♫ Jesus is wonderful, Jesus is mine, He is the one that I love, He is my Lord and King Savior divine, He is the one that I love, Blessings untold He will bestow, Coming from Heaven above, Jesus is wonderful, Jesus is mine, He is the one that I love, Oh He is the one that I love. ♫  I learned this chorus at a youth camp 50 years ago.  It’s still true today.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

♫ There is peace like a river, There is peace like a river, There is peace like a river in my soul, There is peace like a river, There is peace like a river, There is peace like a river in my soul. ♫  The only way to stop the flow of a river is to build a dam.  We so often put obstacles in the way that keep the “peace river” from the Lord flowing in our lives.  Let’s determine to tear down the barriers so the blessings of the Lord can bring peace to our inner man no matter what the external circumstances may be.  God bless!
