A PRAYER AT THE MARCH OF TIME

 

   With the arrival of another new year, we might find ourselves amazed anew at how quickly time passes.  Here is a prayer to share with you about the march of time: 

Heavenly Father,

   Nothing can hurry or stop the march of time.  Forgive my fear of the changes it brings, that You are not in charge, or my reluctance to face what You are trying to do.  Remind me that You sent Your Son into time, and did not spare Him pain, fatigue, and even death itself.  Lord, help me remember that You made time and with its march comes the unfolding of Your plans, the displaying of Your power, and the outplaying of Your grace.  Let me see time as You in action to lead me to do what You would have me do.  Give me the certainty that in Your Son, I already know Your mercy and the fulfilling of Your promises.  In Jesus’ name I boldly pray this.  Amen.

  As the new year begins and time continues its march, be sure to join us for Bible study and worship on Sunday, as we spend time together digging into God's word, praying, and worshipping!

+ Fast from SELF-PITY & feast on JOY
+ Fast from ILL TEMPER & feast on PEACE
+ Fast from RESENTMENT & feast on CONTENTMENT
+ Fast from JEALOUSY & feast on LOVE
+ Fast from PRIDE & feast on HUMILITY
+ Fast from SELFISHNESS & feast on SERVICE
+ Fast from FEAR & feast on FAITH

 

More random musings:


Acts 12 is very interesting…Peter is in prison…the night before execution sleeping (v6)…in tight security…sleeping soundly needing dressing instructions (v8)…he thought he was seeing vision (v9)…first recorded self-opening door (v10)…”no small stir” the next day (v18).

 

There are four words in the New Testament used for miracle: Power, Might Act, Wonder and Sign. The first two are description, the third is reaction and the fourth intention.

 

External beauty is an accident how skin is stretched over bone. Internal beauty is created by intent. Have you noticed? It’s not how old you are on the outside, but on the inside. And the same applies to beauty.

 

So, I asked my wife if I could help with supper. She told me to cut the lawn…The meal was great.

 

Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD you od will be with you wherever you go.”
