Don't Get Tired of Doing the Right Thing

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! Well, our weather has been much different than the weather yesterday going through the south. I was watching the weather channel most of last night, because Daryl had called and said he had seen two tornadoes in Cleveland, Tn and another was on the way. I watched videos of the huge one in Birmingham and Tuscaloosa and people are still digging out, with many deaths. I thank God that my family in Tenn. was spared and have prayed for the ones who were not.

We will be having storms tonight, so the prediction goes, but sometimes the weather man does not get it right. We could use the rain, but not the bad weather! Hopefully, the weather stays good for the last flight of the Endeavor.. But God is still good!

From the little devotional book Knowing God:

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Galatians 6:9 NIV
The world you live in has a way of testing your faith, your courage, and your intentions. If you intend to follow God (and if you follow through on those intentions) you'll be rewarded...richly rewarded. But if you give in at the first sign of temptation, you're headed for trouble, and fast.

Whose steps will you follow today? Will you honor God as you strive to follow His Son? Or will you join the lockstep legion that seeks to discover happiness and fulfillment through worldly means? If you are righteous and wise, you will follow Christ. You will follow Him today and every day. You will seek to walk in His footsteps without reservation or doubt. When you do so, you will be "right with God" precisely because you are walking with His only begotten Son.

                              -Great Thoughts-

"In the fulfillment of your duties, let our intentions be so pure that you reject from your actions any other motive than the glory of God and the salvation of souls.

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs, Amaryllis
