~MARVELLOUS MONDAY~

We had a great weekend, and seen souls saved yesterday too.
Saturday on visitation we had lots of very good visits, but none
that came yesterday. Praying for all those that are visited and hope
that God will get hold of their hearts and bring them in so they may
be saved too, and join our fellowship there.
But today is another day to praise God for his goodness.

Hebrews 11:1 "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."


Faith now that is a wonderful word, and really involves so much. Like forgiveness, joy, and the other spiritual blessings we have. Faith takes us beyond ourselves, past today, over the bumps of tomorrow, all the way through and beyond life on this earth. When we live in the light of Jesus' resurrection, we are also certain of God's gift of eternal life to us, individually and personally.

Our lord urges us to cultivate the faith he has given us by spending time in his Word, and in prayer. Like the pine tree, which stays green all winter, established faith makes perseverance possible. It gives us a stick-to-it attitude that stubbornly persists.

My prayer, dear lord let all the other spiritual blessing you have worked in my life shine in beauty against the faith you have given, then show me how to share my faith with others, , amen and amen, have a very blessed day.
