It is HOT in Deanburg!! And so dry. I know it is everywhere in our county. I hope you that have to be out in the heat are taking all precautions and staying hydrated.
Birthdays this week are David Gilchrist on July 27, Pat Dotson on July 29 and Doris Siler on Aug. 1. Work hard. Play hard. Eat lots of cake. That’s a good motto for your birthday and for life.
Prayer request for Kristen Jones, Brianna Landers, Woodie Deming, and Joyce Stewart. Prayers for COVID patients. It is on the rise. So many I know have had it recently. As always pray for our first responders, our law enforcement, our state, local leaders and national leaders and our great nation.
Our devotion: “God is Right on Schedule” by Adrian Rogers – “‘But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ….’ (Jude 1:17)
“When you see people defying God blatantly, you may just want to throw up your hands and wonder, ‘Is the Bible the Word of God after all?’ Friend, apostasy proves the Bible is the Word of God. You need to understand that. It’s precisely as God said it would be. God is not up in Heaven wringing His hands. And you don’t need to be overwhelmed and bent out of joint like something has suddenly gone awry. Everything is on schedule. The Word of God stands.
“That’s what Jude was saying to these people: ‘Now, beloved, remember the words of the Apostles. It is exactly as they told you it would be.’ And it is so important that we remember this, that there are going to be these apostates in the last days.
“Where do you typically turn when you feel overwhelmed by the brokenness of the world?
“What promises of God can encourage you in these times?
“Make a list of promises of God that might encourage you when life is overwhelming. Keep this somewhere that you can review, and contemplate them frequently.” – LWL.org
Quote for this week: “Make it a rule of life never to regret and never to look back. Regret is an appalling waste of energy; you can’t build on it; it’s only good for wallowing.” – Katherine Mansfield (April 1941) -www.RD.com
