*Good Morning sisters
Yesterday we visited the church where we were saved over 18 years ago. I love the pastor there. It was nice to see old friends, but it also confirmed my current church family really is my home. Still gleaned some wonderful treasures from the message:
2 Corinthians 4:4
New International Version (NIV)
4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
The pastor talked about the importance of standing our ground as christians and not watering down the gospel for fear of offending people around us. He was saying how in the last 20 yrs people in general have lost the fear and respect of God.
Erika: I'm sorry about the situation with your brother. Extended family situations are hard. We are 6 kids, but only two are saved. We have drug dependency in our family and a whole mess of problems. I think you're right. We have to concentrate on our attitudes and reactions to people. They are supposed to see Jesus in us....Father, I ask you to bless Erika. Thank You for this correction you have given her. Thank You that you will give her the strength and words to meet with her brother and show your love and compassion toward him.
Annette: I'm about 75% veggie now. I did have chicken last night...I couldn't go vegan because I still love to bake and need the eggs I have also been no dairy (also about 75%) for about a month. I'm still experimenting to see what works.
Lord, I ask you to bless these ladies that come here to share. Bless and show us what you want. Father, corrections may hurt but we know you have our best interest at heart, we know that you are shaping us day by day to resemble you and present you to those who are perishing. Thank You Lord that you love us and you have great plans for every one of your children. Thank You for all the blessings you have given us as well.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
Victory = series of right choices....
Nothing tastes as good as Peace feels!
God bless you and yours!
