Praise the Lord it rained today J; it was starting to get really dusty on the sidewalks! Just as the earth needs rain, we also experience rainy times in our lives as well. I figured I would fill you in on some of what I read tonight. I read some in Deuteronomy this evening! A phrase that is repeated several times is, “Do not be afraid”. These four words are a great reminder to me! The Lord can and will sustain us through anything. I encourage you, whatever life may throw at you, to stand up with confidence and assurance. The Lord will see us through any and every trial that may come our way. Some of you may be wondering how you are going to get through the rest of this day or week, for others, you may be worried about a friend or family member. Take time to stop and ask the Lord for his guidance and help. The Lord already knows what is going to happen before we do, so rest in that, and allow HIM to bring you peace and comfort like only He can.
I also just started reading “When Heaven Weeps”, by Ted Dekker. The book is a part of a four part series called "The Martyr's Song", that is phenomenal so far! If you are looking for books that will keep your attention, these for sure will. Ted Dekker is known for writing about incredible confrontations between good and evil. Talk about the phrase, "Bo not be afraid"...this is lived out in these books! We are blessed to have religious freedom. These books take you back to some times where people walked out in faith, for some this was to their death!
Time to do a little more reading before bedtime!
Goodnight all J
