Father, thank You for being the God of the mountain and of the valleyπŸ™amen.

Count Your Blessings

Talked and prayed with a lady on the phone, she’s on dialysis three times a week, cannot walk, and moving to nursing home. As we talked, I could hear the laughter of great-grands. She said, “I’m so blessed!” A new message that l’ve started working on is “In a mess, but Blessed”.πŸ™ Remember the old song: “count your blessings , name them one by one”?πŸ™ Father, thank You for life, help me be thankful, in all things, amen.

The Love of Christ

To all care givers: you have my prayers; thank you for the love and care you give. I understand now, just a little, and thank all of you who have been praying and reaching out to us. We can feel your love and concern. Elizabeth has immense pain; we do have some meds. We see the orthopedic  Dr. tomorrow. Paul tells us in Romans 8:35 that nothing can separate us from the love of Christ, nothing! We hold to that today in the midst of all our trials - amen.

Awesome day of worship yesterday, if you have few moments, check out the message “Lessons, I learned from COVID-19”. It’s on our website: lakeblackshearbaptistchurch.com. It’s His day, use it wisely, amen.

Celebrate God’s Creation

Been watching the beautiful full moon the past few days. A song from my ‘DJ’ days ran across my mind: “There’s a moon out tonight”. Do you remember?πŸ˜‡ My mind went to Genesis 1:16-18, where the Creator God made the sun and the moon to rule over the day and the night. The cosmos didn’t just happen. It was the direct creation of God (sorry Carl Sagan). Today, let’s celebrate His creation; we are part of it. We are a “living soul”, the only one of his creation that can worship Him; let’s do it, amen? The message today is lessons that COVID taught us. View on our Facebook page or website.πŸ™

We Won’t Stop Singing

Psalm 137: “We have hanged our harps on the willows by the rivers of Babylon; we cannot sing the Lord’s song in a strange land”. Oh we live in strange, dark, dangerous times. Three things we should do: keep serving, keep Jesus first and don’t stop singing! Sing with me: “Oh, how I love Jesus, because He first loved me”! Dark and dangerous times, we won’t stop singing! Amen.

Remember This Blessing

Mama taught us to say this blessing each time we ate: “God is great, God is good, let us thank Him for our food, for by His hand we are all fed”. It still sounds good. We even said it in the lunchroom at school; our teacher led us (the ACLU would go nutsπŸ˜…). Father, thank You, thank You, in Jesus’ name, for everything, amen.

Jesus Lift Up Our Missionaries

What’s on Your Mind?

Facebook asks “what’s on your mind?”, and my answer is coffee and prayer time with the men this morning. It is an awesome time of worship. We invite any man to stop by on the way to work, have a prayer and a cup of coffee. We want to be the church “without walls”. We don’t talk about how many fish we’ve caught or our golf game. We just pray and praise the Father.πŸ™ Father, thank You for the moments You give us for praise and worship, in Jesus’ name, amen.

Don’t Fall Asleep

Talking with my sister on the phone, I was waxing eloquent on some subject (I’ve got a big mouth), she got very quiet. I thought we’d lost connection. Then she spoke up, “l’m sorry. I fell asleep!”πŸ˜… The message today is “l am the light of the world”.πŸ™ It will be short, so please don’t fall asleep!πŸ˜… Father, thank You for sending Jesus to be our “light” in a dark and dangerous world, amen.

The Rain Kept Falling

Watching the rain falling on my patio and thinking how advanced we are, cell phones, men on the moon, and vaccines for the virus in a year’s time. Boy, we’re smart, and the rain kept falling. Father, please help us, keep us humble, remembering that only You can say “peace, be still”. Help us trust You with everything, amen - as we watch the rain keep falling.

The Women Are Back

For the first time since the COVID, our ladies met for a brunch yesterday. They planned outreach for our children and youth and for the Annie Armstrong Easter offering. One of our deacons and I were in the church office. Down the hall we could hear peals of laughter.πŸ˜‡ We smiled and rejoiced with them.πŸŽ‰ Father, thank You for the strong women of Your church, please help them, encourage them. Satan take warning; the women are back.β€οΈπŸ™ Amen.

Our Reassurance

Some times Satan confronts me with the depths of the sins I have committed. That’s what he delights in - bringing pain, despair into our lives. Then the Holy Spirit speaks and reminds me that the precious Blood of Jesus has erased them, and He remembers them against us no more!! Don’t know about you, but I needed that reassurance this morning. “What a Mighty God we serve”. (If you know the chorus, sing it with me.) Amen and amen.
