Hello Brothers and Sisters,
I deeply appreciate your faithful prayers. I came across these passages this week:
Isaiah 40:10 (KJV) Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.
Psalm 27:1 (KJV) The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
Psalm 46:1-3 (KJV) God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;  Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
These Scriptures are very comforting! Let them bless you this evening!
Let’s continue praying for these folks: Pat Hoffman, David Stahl, the Meshaws as they return for Home Assignment (arriving here this coming Friday), Fletcher Dickerson, souls to be saved and the church family strengthened, our nation and our leaders, church leaders, strong families, faithful church attendance, our children’s ministry and teens, Carmen Moyer, Sasha and Violette (Belarus) tough on them and their friends with Russians present in their country, generous missions giving, and other special needs you are aware of. THANK YOU FOR PRAYING! If you know of a friend at Grace Church who is missing, call them and let them know you miss them! We all miss them!
Tomorrow’s message is from 1 Peter 3:15 (KJV) But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: I am asking the Lord to strengthen our church family. With so many challenges being forced upon us from an evil world, we must be strong!
1 Corinthians 15:58 (KJV) Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
Jesus has a word for us: John 16:32-33 (KJV) Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.33  These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
I love you and yours!
