1 091913 LOVE

Good day to ya everyone. The word of the day is love. As the bible says, love thy neighbor as thy self. Now I know that some of us are having a problem with that scripture in our lives but it is our duty to follow through with what it says to do. If you need help, you know where to go. P.S. I have had to go there a lot lately because my neighbors are really something.

Today’s Prayer

Father, as I sit here in my secret place I hear the birds singing their beautiful morning songs. Let us “sing out like the birds” Your praises because our spirits are filled with love and gratitude for Your gift of faith, and for Your presence in our lives. Let us worship You for Your faithfulness, and for sending Your Son and the Holy Spirit that we may better understand Your will for our lives. Let us in all of our being praise You. In Jesus wonderful name we pray, Amen and Amen.

Let’s eat.

Love in the Spirit

Colossians 1:3-14

We always pray for you, and we give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. For we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and your love for all of God’s people, which come from your confident hope of what God has reserved for you in heaven. You have had this expectation ever since you first heard the truth of the Good News. This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God’s wonderful grace. You learned about the Good News from Epaphras, our beloved co-worker. He is Christ’s faithful servant, and he is helping us on your behalf He has told us about the love for others that the Holy Spirit has given you. So we have not stopped praying for you since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better. We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy, always thanking the Father. He has enabled you to share in the inheritance that belongs to his people, who live in the light. For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins.

Quote of the Day

Jesus says, “Cry over your pains, and you will discover that I’m right there in your tears, and you will be grateful for my presence in your weakness.” Ministry means to help people become grateful for life even with pain. That gratitude can send into the world precisely to the places where people are in pain. The minister, the disciple of Jesus, goes where there is pain not because he is a masochist or she is a sadist, but because God is hidden in the pain.
