Priscilla teaches us patience during times of suffering, leading in with one of her stories, bringing her special brand of humor to lighten an otherwise unpleasant experience.
I guess I better not stop there. The experience was one she had last week, not the one we had today. 🙂
We make hundreds of decisions every day.. Most of them are of little consequence, but sometimes we may have no idea what will come of a seemingly insignificant choice.. Then there are those times when the choice is hard.. The right way is not obvious.. Are there principles we can apply that will help us choose well? There certainly are, and we talk about some of them.. I read from a few different places, but if one passage has to summarize the message, it would be Proverbs 16:1-3.
One humble monk + the Power of God = a changed world!
Rejoice with us and pray with us.
Kim is healing well and walking well. Ruth praises the Lord that she can be here today. We all do. Anita says her aunt came through the surgery well. Cathy is thankful that Ruth got through her procedure well and there is hope for learning what is wrong. Didi is putting her trust in the Lord that her situation will work out. John is glad to be here. We’re glad too and especially that he’s feeling better and speaking up. Pastor David enjoyed family and friends last week. Kelly may get to move back closer where we can get her to church. Barbara and Richard have found land for a new house. Pray for Benny as they are still dealing wiht issues surrounding the passing of his mother. Keep praying for Didi. She needs a place to stay. Pam is still trying to get her shoes and asks prayer for her friend Michelle who is now in a shelter. Keep praying for Ruth’s recovery.Larry
This week I speak to you about why we should be giving back to God.. We know that the government requires us to pay our taxes and has made rules to enforce this payment, but that is not the case when it comes to God.. God does not demand our support. He gives us guidelines as to what we need to do and reasons why we should, but he does not force us to give back to him.. God always wants our support to be voluntary and with a glad heart.. The scripture verses this week are in Matthew 22:15-22.
(derived from the pastor’s introduction)
Priscilla teaches the need for accountability to each other and to God.
Rejoice with us and pray with us.
Don is thankful for more work. Didi is thankful for the friends letting her stay with them. John is doing better.
Mary Ellen fell and broke her arm. The Terrells are still out sick. Anita’s aunt is in the hospital. Her name is Margaret. Ruth has more medical testing this week. Gary is also going in for testing. Didi asks prayer for a friend Annie with heart trouble and another friend Sandra with heart trouble. Lisa prays for Jane to get well and stay well. She has been diagnosed with asthma. Pam is still trying to get her shoes. Didi is still looking for a home. Edward is out with a sore throat. Priscilla’s niece is siffering from arthritis but praises God it is not lupus. Barbara and Richard are still looking for a house. This latest prospect didn’t work out. Keep praying for Linda. Kimi is having more trouble with her arthritis.
Remember these requests this week and be sure to thank the Lord for all that He has already done for us.
