Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! We have clouds this morning and a nice little rain fell last evening and I am thankful for that. I could not see any stars or the moon this morning, but know they were there above the clouds. God is Awesome!
I have not seen the gecko in our bathroom for the past two days, so I am hoping he has fled the premises with his sticky little feet. I would rather they stay outside. For awhile they were laying eggs in our mailbox, but not lately. Strange little critters! I watched a great blue heron cleaning his feathers again yesterday at the park. Two days in a row, now. That is kind of unusual because I have never seen that before. There was a boat with a large trash can in it tied up at the weir, so someone was cleaning out the canal, which was good. It gets a lot of trash washed down from in back of the houses across from the canal, when the rain comes down. First thing you see when driving into the park, so it is good to keep it clean!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
What is God calling me to do?
Matthew 9:37 He said to his disciples, "The harvest is so great, but the workers are so few."
People are ready to hear and receive the Good News of God's love. But with this promise comes the responsibility to work and to pray. The Lord expects us to enter fully into his work of reaching the world with the love of God.
Matthew 16:18-19 Now I say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it. And I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you lack on earth will be locked in heaven, and whatever you open on earth will be opened in heaven.
As followers of Christ, we are part of the church, or the people of God. God has promised that we will overcome the kingdom of darkness and secure his victory . We must not be on the defensive, thinking we will one day lose. We should take the offensive and overcome evil with good.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
