1 110413 FROM THE WORD

Good morning everyone. As I sit here I am reminded of something that one of my spiritual mentors said to me a few weeks back; there are three things that you can count on and he gave me three groups of scripture to go to and lean on. I’m going to share them with you today so get ready.

Today’s Prayer

    Father, open our eyes as responsible citizens, and especially as Christians, to see the situation that we face in our nation today. We are going to the polls to elect a new President today. Let us each seriously reflect on Charles Colson’s words:* ”  the crisis that threatens us, the force that could topple our monuments and destroy our very foundations, is within ourselves. The crisis is the character of our culture, where the values that restrain inner vices and develop inner virtues are eroding. Unprincipled men and women, disdainful of their moral heritage and skeptical of Truth itself, are destroying our civilization by weakening the very pillars upon which it rests.” Remind us that we all have had a part in this, whether by being uninformed, or too busy, or deceived, we have allowed our nation to erode morally. Make us aware that You are calling us to choose leaders who will help us recover our moral compass.  In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.




“Fear not”


Isaiah 43:1-2


But now, O Jacob, listen to the Lord who created you. O Israel, the one who formed you says, “Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.


The Word of Pardon; “Worry not”


Psalm 37:1-4


Don’t worry about the wicked or envy those who do wrong. For like grass, they soon fade away. Like spring flowers, they soon wither. Trust in the Lord and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires.



The Word of Peace; “Faint not”


2 Corinthians 4:16-18


That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.


Quote of the Day


“The beautiful thing about this adventure called faith is that we can count on Him never to lead us astray.”
