Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you. Another quote by St. Augustine..But doesn’t it make you wonder what kind of world would it be if we lived by this. If we did this ourselves we would see our life take a different direction.
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, Colossians 3:23
Please pray for Tracy, Jeremy, and Taylor Ann Helton! She is now admitted to the hospital as of 6:30 pm. Soon….3….2….1…Go!
O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;and gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.~Psalm 107: 1-3
Being humble is not a popular idea in our culture. As shows are running ramped on our televisions about the reality of people lives being splashed for entertainment. Even though we all get caught getting rapped up in these shows. Why is it fascinating to watch people’s ups and down on t.v.? Maybe because it makes us forget about the reality of our own life. Whatever the case we are commanded to be humble. Lead a quiet life.
Here is a quote by St. Augustine.. Do you wish to be great? Then begin by being humble. Do you desire to construct a vast and lofty fabric? Think first about the foundations of humility. The higher your structure is to be, the deeper must be its foundation.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Philippians 2:3
Why do we have such a hard time believing that we are forgiven? Often we it so hard to forget the mistakes we have made. So many people will carry this burden with them all their life. The bible tells us to throw off the weight that burdens us from running a race. Have you ever ran carrying a sand bag or a 20 lb. med ball. I guarantee you did not run as fast and it was a lot harder than if you were just running free from any weight. Ask God to help you so that you can run your race with perseverance.
“I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more. Isaiah 43.25

Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.”Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.”~James 4:13-15
Have you ever heard the Natalie Grant song, “Your Great Name”? The lyrics are so good and great to listen to for encouragement. The first verse: Lost are saved; find their way; at the sound of your great name All condemned; feel no shame, at the sound of your great name Every fear; has no place; at the sound of your great name The enemy; he has to leave; at the sound of your great name
[Chorus:] Jesus, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain for us, Son of God and Man You are high and lifted up; that all the world will praise your great name
We get attacked through out the day and night by Satan. He tries to instill fear in us either about finances, illness, terror attacks, etc.. I love the part where it says, the enemy has to leave at the sound of your great name! We underestimate the God we serve. Because it is biblical that Satan has no ground where the Holy Spirit is. Don’t ever doubt that Jesus is worthy to be praise and trusted!
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, …Psalm 91:1-16
