Glenn’s Meal 07-19-13

1 071913 CIS

Good morning everyone and praise the Lord for another day and another chance to strengthen our walk. Just in case someone might have forgotten who He is, the meal today is a friendly reminder.


(This prayer is for me. I ask that you make it your prayer too.)

Father, I come before you this morning with a personal request. Help me learn that You have a purpose for me right where I am — whether happy or depressed, secure or frightened, well or ill, going forward or marking time — there is something that I can do for You, Lord. You can use me every day of my life! Show me how, Lord. Help me to take time to listen, and to chip away at my self-centeredness, that I may “know” within me Your Holy Spirit’s leading. Help me to want to make Your will my will, in both big and little things — such as to encourage others, to show love and kindness, or to lend a helping hand. No matter what I feel my present circumstances are, it is up to me to enlarge the vistas of my life. Open my eyes to see the opportunities that You provide for me to reflect You each day. This I ask in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Let’s eat.


Colossians 1:15-24

Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see— such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him. He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together. Christ is also the head of the church, which is his body. He is the beginning, supreme over all who rise from the dead. So he is first in everything. For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross. This includes you who were once far away from God. You were his enemies, separated from him by your evil thoughts and actions. Yet now he has reconciled you to himself through the death of Christ in his physical body. As a result, he has brought you into his own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault. But you must continue to believe this truth and stand firmly in it. Don’t drift away from the assurance you received when you heard the Good News. The Good News has been preached all over the world, and I, Paul, have been appointed as God’s servant to proclaim it.


He who has learned to pray has learned the greatest secret of a holy and happy life.
