Wednesday's Word ~ Servants for Christ

1Pe 4:10-11 (NIV) Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms. (11) If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.

We have tried to teach our children to be servants. Knowing that God will be glorified in all that we do. With the floods from the last couple of weeks in the area, our congregation has decided that instead of going somewhere for the mission trip this year we will be meeting daily that week and working in our own area... there were parts of our county and the next county over that were hit very hard by flooding and tornadoes. We have started gathering supplies to distribute to those in need. Yesterday, Travis traveled with others to pick up soaps, detergents and such to give out to anyone in need .... this afternoon there are several of our teens that will gather and sort through the different products and get them ready to hand out. There is so much to do and so many things that can be done to help out. We are so blessed to have children that are willing to be servants for the cause of Christ.

Please add our work in your prayers.

Monday's Musings

Hello everyone! Today has been a good day! Eric and I went out today and got the seeds and seedlings for the gardens today.... he and the kids will be planting this week! Three garden spots this year! I am hoping for a great year for our gardens and for a good harvest! This really helps us throughout the whole year!

Then tonight we cooked a nice dinner and had my mom over for the evening. I did not get to see her yesterday since we were traveling back from Eric's sister graduation this weekend. (She graduated from Pharmacy School- whoohoo Brianne) We had a great time visiting with her, she is such a wonderful mom! I am so blessed!

Monday News and a word of encouragement.

Well we survived the storms over the weekend. We were very blessed to not have suffered much as far as damage. However, many here in Lewis Co and in the surrounding counties there have been many losses of homes, property damage, roads that have washed out and deaths. And other parts of the state have been hit worse. School was out today and is again tomorrow due to many roads in the county still not passable - or just not there anymore.

You know our ladies class has been studying about crisis and how Christians should deal with a crisis. Today I thought of how when we are found in the swirling waters of troubles that I am so encouraged by just knowing that God never leaves my side! I can call out to Him in times of crisis and know that He is there. And God does an amazing thing.... not only does He comfort me but He sends people my way that can help/comfort/ encourage me throughout the crisis! God is wonderful to us, His children! All we have to do is trust that God will bring us through any crisis we may face. We don't have to fear the flood waters of life... for we know that God is always there to hold us above the waters.
