August 20

Greetings: God bless you this day!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
The Source:
Sin drives you from  your life source. But God will secure your presence
with Him, if you believe Christ as Savior. Pray that this nation will turn
back to God... the only source for life. (Vantage Point Devotional)

SCRIPTURE:
The Lord God formed man of the dust from the ground and breathed into
his nostrils the breath of life Genesis 2:7.

How it must grieve God that mankind has rebelled ever since creation.

Things:
The older I get the more I realize that most "things" are insignificant.

getting it! (Steven Clark Goad-Power for Today)

You are worried and upset about many things, but one thing is needed.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
A Fresh Start:
To everyone that feels like a "throwaway" headed for the landfill
of life, Jesus opens His arms of love and offers a fresh beginning.
That's why He came! (David McCasland-Our Daily Bread)

SCRIPTURE:
I have not come to call the righteous, but the sinners, to repentance.
Luke 5:32

And that is everyone who sees him/herself as a sinner and knows that they
cannot save themselves!

Greetings: God bless you this Lord's Day!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
We are tempted to cultivate a false image for others to see.
But God knows our hearts.  We need to let God transform
us from the inside out. (Dennis Fisher-Our Daily Bread)

SCRIPTURE:
The Lord does not look at things that man looks at. Man looks at
the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.
1 Samuel 16:7

We all wear a mask of some kind and many times the life of the party
is the one bleeding inside... so be generous with your hugs and smiles!

Greetings: God bless you this day!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
During the seasons when you think your strength is almost gone,
be assured that God is beside you and ready to sweep you up onto
His wings of mercy and grace. There you will find rest, comfort
and healing for your broken heart and wounded spirit.
(Moments of Peace in the Presence of God)

SCRIPTURE:
And He shall cover you with His feathers. And under His wings you will
shall take refuge.  Psalm 91:4

I love the analogy of being beneath God's wings. Having lived, on a farm and
having watched a mother hen safely keeping her chicks beneath her wings. I think
it a lovely comparison in how God cares for us.

Know I prayed for you today. Blessings-Freda

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
The key to avoiding the tragic results of foolish choices is embracing God's
wisdom as our guide through life. (David McCasland-Our Daily Bread)

SCRIPTURE:
For God gives wisdom and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
Proverbs 2:6

And His wisdom and knowledge is found in the His Word. I remember when
I was trying to decide if I should retire early. I spent one afternoon in God's Word
and in prayer. I came across Hebrews 13:5-6 It spoke so clearly to me, I retired and
never looked back.

Know I prayed for you today. Blessings-Freda
