Good day and praise the Lord for His mercy and grace. He has allowed us another chance to stay on the path that leads to Him. The one true thing we can do is rejoice.

Today’s Prayer

Father, I come before you this morning on behalf of my brothers and sisters in Christ to ask You to help us as parents to spend more time with our children regardless of their age, sometimes with each one alone. Help us to get to know each child better, to understand his or her thinking and needs. Let us listen to their opinions, and where they are off the track, their actions threatening to be non-productive or detrimental to their health or safety, let us explain why, and take a stand as parents. Let us pray together, and explain not only the hopes that we as parents have for their lives and conduct, but all that You too envision for them. Open their eyes to see that hasty decisions, without seeking Your guidance, could cause life-long consequences. Oh Lord, be with all families who love You, as they seek to live according to Your will. In Jesus’ holy name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Rejoice In The Lord!

Philippians 4:1-9

 Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved. I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord. And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life. Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

 Quote of the Day

No husband is so undying and everlasting a husband as Christ is; death separates all other relations, but the soul’s union with Christ is not dissolved in the grave. Indeed, the day of a believer’s death is his marriage day, the day of his fullest enjoyment of Christ. No husband can say to his wife, what Christ says to the believer, “I will never leave you, nor forsake you”
