My son, Luke

Psalms 1 “1 Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the
wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of the
mockers. 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on His law
he meditates day and night. 3 He is like a tree planted by the streams
of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not
wither. Whatever he does prospers. 4 Not so the wicked! They are like
chaff that the wind blows away. 5 Therefore the wicked will not stand
in the judgment, nor the sinners in the assembly of the righteous. 6
For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the
wicked will perish.” (NIV)

Love is:

1 Corinthians 13:1-13 “1 If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or clanging cymbal. 2) If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. 3# If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.

Earl and Jesus

During the preparation for Hurricane Earl, it’s easy to get caught up in the weather channels. Watching the predictions of a Category 4 hurricane on TV may bring worry and fear to our hearts. We do need to prepare for the storm but we must be very careful not to focus on the storm. Not only do we need extra water, flash lights, batteries, gasoline and food; we also need extra prayer. Prayer is a wonderful line of defense against dangers of any type. We also need to throw some faith in there too. Faith that God is in control, that He hears our prayers and that our prayers will be answered. Many are very nervous about these huge Hurricanes coming our way. Lets change our fears, nervousness and worry to praise and prayers. This will change our whole outlook on these storms and others that may approach us in life. God loves us and He will take care of us….. Psalms 27:1 says, “The Lord is my light and my salvation-so why should I be afraid? The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?”

Break the Bondage

“A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil.” Ephesians 6:10-13
