my Hope Jesus


And forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who is indebted to us. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.

~Luke 11:4, NKJV


God judged it better to bring good out of evil than to suffer no evil to exist.



It is appalling to a believer, but secular humanism denies the existence of evil. Their philosophy is “No sin means no guilt, no guilt means no need for forgiveness and no need for forgiveness means no need for a Savior.” Unfortunately, the liberals live in denial. On July 20, 2012, fans gathered in a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado for the premier of Warner Brothers production The Dark Knight Rises. In spite of the rating, many parent brought young children. During the movie a 24 year man dressed in black and wearing a gas mask came into the theater, unleashed a canister of tear gas and then opened fire. In a matter of second, he had killed 10 and wounded 50. Here is the sad irony: the movie continued to roll uninterrupted but no one was watching. People were running, screaming, hiding under the seats: the sudden appearance of actual evil totally eclipsed fictional evil. This is like hand writing on the wall: it is not rocket science. Only a moron can deny the existence of evil.


We have some families is crisis: please pray for Roger and Dot Burcham. Their daughter-in-law Michelle is very critical. The entire family has been through so much that I don’t know where to begin. Pray for Chris and the girls. This has been a hard week for all and it may get harder. Let’s bath this family in prayer today.

Danny Alred has been very sick. He was feeling so bad Tuesday that I didn’t even bother him. They did surgery yesterday and hopefully he will improve. I am going to make an effort to see him today.

The care boxes for the two elderly women went well, I will deliver them this morning, LORD Willing. If this is up your alley, I will hand off: it is as easy as falling off a log. All you need is the right attitude and vehicle. If you want to go with me, be at the office by 9:00 and call me around 8:00 and let me know you are coming.

Chuck Swindoll says that life is 10% circumstances and 90% our response to the circumstances. Every person has the right to choose their attitude or response to our circumstances.

Emily Shipley Mead is in HH Women and Children, Room 213. She is on bed rest. She is carrying three precious boys. She feels good but she is bored and wants company. If you are in the Huntsville area, drop in and see Emily. Let me warn you, parking is a nightmare unless you use one of the decks or go on the weekend.

Pray for Penny Hazel who suffers from cancer. She is a precious woman and has two young daughters. Penny is Tony Smallwood’s sister.

Ray Edwards continues to make progress at Health South in Huntsville. He should come home next Friday.

Record crowd for Supper last night but not for the gathering. The YOUTH out numbered the adults 4 to 1. We have some adults who have leaking cups. I may say more about this Sunday. We have 9 new Christians among our youth who need encouraging. You can’t encourage them when you are not present. The modern version of Hebrews 10:25 is…I will forsake the assembly any time I please, I don’t care who it discourages.
