Blessings from God our Father, His Son, our Savior Jesus & The Holy Spirit, our Comforter, As I sat down to write this, I read over what I shared with you last month and was again impressed with Oswald Chambers thought - “We have to pray with our eyes on God and not on our difficulties. We all have trials, adversities and challenges, but we must keep out primary focus on The Lord. Go to the Psalms and you will see repeatedly the answer: “Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.”
I shared with you last month that we had chosen to look into the possibility of starting a Day Care at the former Lamar Twp School. At this time, the entities that were seeking to purchase the school and alot us space have determined that the renovations would exceed $2 million dollars and they have stepped back from their offer. BTW – this did not include the purchase of the property.
Our study of the Book of Revelation is underway – WOW! & WOW! You can still join us as we delve into this awesome book of prophecy. We are currently looking at the 7 churches that John wrote to. Permit me to share this with you: • Ephesus - the church that had forsaken its first love 2. 4 • Smyrna - the church that would suffer persecution 2. 10 • Pergamum - the church that needed to repent 2. 16 • Thyatira - the church that had a false prophetess 2. 20 • Sardis - the church that had fallen asleep 3. 2 • Philadelphia - the church that had endured patiently 3. 10 • Laodicea - the church with the lukewarm faith 3. 16
God directed John to write these churches to remind them who they were and what they were doing. I challenge you to read these letters, but to insert your name as the recipient. John could have been writing to each of us and the contents would apply to our lives. The letters are not meant to be negative, but a call to repent and return to The Lord – before it’s too late.
