Things to remember!

A few things worth recalling . . .

*** From a publication -- a reminder that if God calls us to do something, HE will provide what we need. Reminds me of the phrase "where God guides, He provides." Good stuff to keep in the ol' memory!

*** This verse really ministered to my heart when I read it just before bed last night.

17 "Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you. (Jeremiah 32)

Thank you, Lord, for the encouragement! Love that: nothing is too hard for you!

*** Following Jesus as a servant requires obedience. And obedience means personal involvement,

14"Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another's feet." (John 13)

requires Christlike unselfishness

15"I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you."

and results in ultimate happiness.

17"Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them."

And remember being blessed is a grand thing!

*** Waiting is often the most difficult Christian discipline.

*** And finally this verse from Hebrews 6 .. for some reason it struck a chord with me last night.

11 Our great desire is that you will keep on loving others as long as life lasts, in order to make certain that what you hope for will come true. 12 Then you will not become spiritually dull and indifferent. Instead, you will follow the example of those who are going to inherit God’s promises because of their faith and endurance.

I think that's all for now! Oh, except for one last thing: don't just be a hearer of the Word... DO it!
