Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the warm, humid day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! The half-moon was struggling to shine through the haze this morning, but a few stars were visible, showing God's glory.
Our gutters are still running with water from the rain last Thursday, and the water is high in the Park, I walked Friday and spoke to Mama gator who was stretched out full length, mostly in the water that is much higher now at the base of the nest. The nest is quite high, about three feet above the water level, so no danger of it flooding.
Sonnie, a friend, told me at church yesterday, that there is a petrified bat hanging from a tree somewhere on the trail, but he didn't know where, I would really like to see it! I will investigate further to see if I can find it. God's Creation is marvelous!
From the Promise Bible NLT
How can I be sure that my needs will be met?
Psalm 23:1 "The Lord is my Shepherd; I have everything I need."
The starting point for our assurance is the promise of God's love. Even as sheep must depend fully on a good shepherd, we must depend fully on the Lord. He is eager to graciously lead us through life.
Romans 8:31-32 "What can we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Since God did not spare even His own Son, but gave him up for us all, won't God, who gave us Christ, also give us everything else?"
If someone was offering you millions of dollars, you would not hesitate to ask them for just a few. God has met our greatest need by giving us His own Son to redeem us. Now, his great joy is supplying all our other needs for the glory of His name.
Hebrews 4:16 "Let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it."
We should not hesitate to come to God because he welcomes our requests.
Philippians 4:19 "This same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus."
God's resources far exceed my greatest needs.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
