SCRIPTURE

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

~John 14:27, NKJV

QUOTE

I am still in the land of the dying; soon I will be in the land of the living.

~John Newton [last words]

my thoughts red

Affliction quickens us to prayer. Experience testifies that a long course of ease and prosperity, without pain or persecution, has a tendency to make us cold and formal in our worship and slothful in our service. Troubles rouse our spirit and constrain us to call on the LORD in earnest–when we need that kind of help that can only come from the Almighty. Afflictions are useful, and in a degree necessary, to keep alive in us–a firm conviction of the vanity and imperfection of this current world and to remind us that this world is not our home. Sorrows call our thoughts upward where our true treasure lies and where our heart longs to be. [Copied almost word for word from John Newton]

  • Good day, lots of liberty to preach, much to be thankful for!
  • I am really tired and probably will not research the issue brought to our attention last night. I think Rebecca did some research when she got home and found out the Zondervan is owned by HARPER COLLINS PUBLISHING. It is my understanding that they publish everything, even Satanic bibles. We will try to get the facts ASAP.
  • Kane was at church yesterday morning; it was good to see him. Don’t stop praying for Kane, Keri and Gary.
  • Can you identify the flag below?
