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! I heard thunder and rain sometime around 2:30 this morning, but now the sun is shining and just a few puffy clouds are in the sky, However, more rain is expected later today. I say, Bring it on!!
In between showers yesterday, I made a trip to the library, and then did some errands, while just a very fine mist was falling. I included a trip to the park, and found the canal was up nicely, and washed clean of all the lilies and growth because of the fast moving current. Also, some roofers were putting new roofs on the house and work shop. I think it was green metal roofing, which replaces the aluminum roofing that was already on. I really like the looks of metal roofing, which I have seen on a few houses and buildings. But, at least, my roof is not leaking that I know of, so God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
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 to enter fully into his work of reaching the world with the love of God.
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 lock 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 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,
