13 years ago today

Most Americans will remember that fateful day in our history that changed this nation.  The terrorist attacks that gripped America and shed the blood of thousands of innocent lives impacted us greatly.

It’s hard to believe that it has been thirteen years since 9-11.  Our prayer should be that our nation would never have to endure that kind of attack again.  We should also cling to Christ just as we did after that day.  We should continue to hold onto Him as we seek God’s best for our nation.  May we bow our knee to Christ and may God turn the heart of our nation back to Him.

God Bless America!

Here is the sermon from Sunday morning’s service. It was a message God had been stirring in my heart for many weeks.  I encourage you to watch it with an open heart. Evaluate how you receive the preaching of the Word when you attend church.  Do you provide good soil for the seed of the Word of God to be sown in?

 

 

Good Soil

Trail ride- Pinnacle Mountain State Park

Had a great family trail ride today on our vacation. Would have taken more pictures but I had an ornery horse (hence the blurry photo). I could have sworn it was part donkey. We had a blast though! Weather was overcast and in the high 70s.  Hannah looked like pro on her horse. All those horse riding lessons paid off.

The Lord Works With Us

http://bible.com/114/MRK16.19 So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.

The beauty of this verse reveals that when we share Christ and “preach” everywhere,  He will not leave us alone. Better yet, He will confirm His Word with signs and wonders. Jesus still has mighty power and He will use us to minister to the needs of others. What greater way to point people to Christ than by showing them that we have a powerful and mighty Savior! The Lord works with us!
