WE APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT!!

20180713_075108_0001.png

Thankful for everyone who has let us know you are enjoying our Facebook blog, page, and/or groups!! Only yesterday, while at a dental appointment a staff member shared that she and her spouse were so encouraged by and enjoying our group. Many have shared with us that although you may not comment publicly that you are an active reader. That’s awesome to know!! We also greatly appreciate those who are active participants. We love, love, love hearing from you!! ❤

It means a lot when others in the community and online share how they have been encouraged or blessed with a right now word. Here’s the best part to me, many of our posts are written and scheduled weeks in advance, but God knows exactly what we need individually and collectively and exactly when we need it!! I love that, and give God all the glory and praise!!

This started out as just an idea on my heart that lingered to start a blog, than a page, and now two groups. It’s a blessing to see the growth and the support. We look forward to seeing what else lies ahead in the future!! The funny part is every time we think about taking a break for a while, others have encouraged us repeatedly to keep sharing so we will until God says otherwise. Be blessed on today, and thanks so much for your support!! 🙂

Something To Think About…

20180713_065422_0001

The word of God is for our example and our guidance. Here are a few points to consider from the following passages. What do these passages speak to you? Share in the comments below.

1. Those who were assigned to the work were handpicked and chosen by God.

2. The workers were given the necessary wisdom and understanding to carry out their assignment from God.

3. The congregation gave freely and bountifully towards the work. The offerings were sufficient and even too much. There was enough with no lack. There was overflow!

4. The man of God commanded the congregation to not bring anything further once he was informed of how much had already been given. He received only what was necessary to complete the work of the Lord, and did not try to rob or profit from the people for his own gain or in the name of the Lord as they carried out the assignment from God.

Exodus 35:31

31 And he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship;

Exodus 36:1

36 Then wrought Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in whom the Lord put wisdom and understanding to know how to work all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that the Lord had commanded.

Exodus 36:3-7

3 And they received of Moses all the offering, which the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the sanctuary, to make it withal. And they brought yet unto him free offerings every morning.

4 And all the wise men, that wrought all the work of the sanctuary, came every man from his work which they made;

5 And they spake unto Moses, saying, The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work, which the Lord commanded to make.

6 And Moses gave commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, Let neither man nor woman make any more work for the offering of the sanctuary. So the people were restrained from bringing.

7 For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and too much.

We appreciate your support!!

Verse Of The Day

20180619_094747_0001

 

John 1:1-16

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The same was in the beginning with God.

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.

16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.

Do You Believe?

Do you believe? Can you see?

John 20:25-28

25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.

26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.

27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.

28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.

Did you catch that??? His response…

My Lord AND my God.

Now he believed. Now he could see.

My Lord and MY GOD.

Do you believe? Can you see?

I SHALL COME FORTH!!!

Remember this! The devil comes to kill, steal, and destroy! When the enemy of your soul speaks to your mind and says… It’s too much. You can’t handle this. Just give up. Just quit. You’re not going to make it through this. It’s a lie from the pits of hell!! ⚠️⚠️

You better turn to that devil, and announce…

I may feel weak right now, but My God is STRONG and MIGHTY!

God can handle THIS!! Nothing is impossible though Him!!

It’s NOT OVER until God says so! His timing is perfect!

I can do ALL THINGS through Christ Jesus who STRENGTHENS ME!

My God is ABLE TO DO EXCEEDINGLY, ABUNDANTLY MORE THAN I could ever ask or think!

Verse Of The Day

20180612_150150_0001

 

Psalm 121

121 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.

The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.

The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
