I got to talk to Brittany Cook tonight which is always great...keep working hard Britt (Colossians 3:23)!!
Prayer Request: Please pray for one of my teammates, Lindsay, who will be traveling back to the States tomorrow to see her Grandma. Her Grandma is expected to pass any time now, so just keep her and her family in your prayers. Pray that Linds would have a safe trip and that the Lord's will, will ultimately be accomplished!
Also, our new teammate comes in Sunday night! Pray that she would be able to transition smoothly onto our team.
I am headed to bed :).I will post more tomorrow Lord willing! Gnight :)
Verses of the day:
Psalm 66:20 “Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love for me.”
This whole chapter talks about different things that the Lord has done! He parted the red sea, He created the world, and ultimately He gave us an opportunity to accept Him into our hearts and lives so that we could be saved.Proverbs 11:2 “When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.It is our responsibility to use whatever gifts and talents that He has given us to honor and glorify Him!! We need to make sure that we guard our heart and keep pride from taking root in our hearts, minds, and lives.
Colossians 3:23 “Whatever you do, work at it with all of your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.”I just loved this entire chapter; so many great nuggets of truth in here. How many times do we lose sight of why we are on this earth or who we are working for? The Lord needs to be our focus in every single area of our life.

IS YOUR HOPE IN GOD FAINT AND DYING?
"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose imagination is stayed on Thee." Isaiah 26:3
“Is your imagination stayed on God or is it starved? The starvation of the imagination is one of the most fruitful sources of exhaustion and sapping in a worker's life. If you have never used your imagination to put yourself before God, begin to do it now. It is no use waiting for God to come; you must put your imagination away from the face of idols and look unto Him and be saved. Imagination is the greatest gift God has given us and it ought to be devoted entirely to Him. If you have been bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, it will be one of the greatest assets to faith when the time of trial comes, because your faith and the Spirit of God will work together. Learn to associate ideas worthy of God with all that happens in Nature - the sunrises and the sunsets, the sun and the stars, the changing seasons, and your imagination will never be at the mercy of your impulses, but will always be at the service of God.
