Thank You for joining me today! Enjoy His Truth!
“For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way, the rich man will fade away even while he goes about his business.” James 1: 11
What is important in this life? Beauty? Riches? Our jobs? Status? Our homes? Cars? Boats? As the above verses say, they are all going to wither, be destroyed and/or fade away! This life is temporary! The work we do with our hands will someday perish!How important will the job we’ve done at work be 100 years from now? What condition will our car or boat be in? Think about the condition of our earthly bodies in 100 years!
What IS important?
The lives and souls of the people put in our paths!
What will we leave behind?
Prayerfully, we will impact others with the Love of God, His Hope, His Peace, and the Truth of Everlasting Life with Him!
Father God, we put too much importance on the things of this world! None of it will last! We won’t take anything with us when we pass from this life to the next except the people You touch (sometimes by using us)! May we be Your Vessel Father to make a difference in the lives of the people around us! With Your touch we will not wither or fade away but live on forever with You!
Instead of achieving earthly goals we set for ourselves help us to focus on the journey, the trials and the stresses that come up and give us a chance to share a different way of handling situations! Help us to SEE these opportunities Father!
Please continue to be with those struggling in the body Father (Terri, Pete, Grace, Marion and others)! Please lay Your Healing Hands upon them! We ask for Your Perfect Will to be done in all these lives!
Please be with those struggling financially! Such a tough time for so many! Help us to help each other!
Please be with those struggling emotionally for so many different reasons! May they find JOY and Purpose in You! In serving You and Your children!
We ask that You would take care of our Military and their families! Please keep them safe and extra close to You!
We come before Your Throne in the Mighty Name of Your Son, Jesus. Amen.
