Hello and Blessings:
We just want to thank you all so much for visiting our blog!
Since we started, in May of 2012, we have been blessed to have thousands of friends visit us here, from all over the world.
So far, we have had visitors from a total of 99 different countries, and from every continent and region of the world.
We praise God for that, and for the opportunity to share with so many wonderful friends from, literally, all over (and, “under”).
Looking ahead … well, we’re not looking ahead, necessarily, … but, we certainly will keep looking up, and we encourage you all to do the same: As Jehoshaphat prayed, and what a great prayer recorded in 2 Chronicles 20: “… neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee” (verse 12).
So, we wish to do all we can to encourage you, most of all, to make your relationship with Jesus just the way He wants, not the way you want … His will be done in you, and through you, to the glory of God … Allow me to say that, today, this year, we don’t need a new resolution … we need a new revelation … of Who Jesus is, and can be, in and through us …
“Now thanks be unto God, which ALWAYS causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savor of his knowledge by us in every place” (2 Corinthians 2:14).
Why, yes, that does mean, also, in the workplace … and in our homes … even among our families …
Back to 2 Chronicles 20, this time to the words of Jahaziel:
“Be not afraid or dismayed … for the battle is not yours, but God’s … set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you … for the LORD will be with you” (15-17).
So, to all our friends, please have faith, believe, and act on it! We always say that, “When we act on faith, we’re not acting!” God, and God alone, has met all of our needs, all of this year. And, we still trust Him, because He hasn’t changed, nor has His love for us changed.
Gotta love that 2 Chronicles 20: “Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper” (verse 20).
As the old “CBer’s” used to say, “10-4 on that” … (Yes, I remember the old CB craze) … I wonder if all that meant 2 Corinthians 10:4: “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.”
Gotta love that 2 Corinthians, too!
In closing, allow us to thank you again for joining us this year, and we do promise to do a better job in putting together more information about encouraging Pastors and their families … We welcome any encouraging words you’d like to send us to encourage both the Pastor, and the flock …
Closing # 2: We do encourage you to pray more, and to study your Bible more, so that you can be more … like Jesus!
And, please make a point to read those great stories from the Bible about the lives and actions of all of the great characters in our past, our relatives in the faith … I just finished studying about Moses, and Noah, and Abraham … can’t wait to read again the story of Joseph … and, so many others … their stories are there, just like we pray our stories will be here, to witness to, and encourage you all …
Please allow us to hear from you!
And, speaking of Abraham:
” … And I will bless them that bless thee …” (Genesis 12:3)
On behalf of Carol, and I, thank you again … and bless you all,
