The result of eating a late dinner of Mexican food and going to bed before 10:00pm is waking up at 3:00am! That really is no surprise. Contrary to most people’s first thought however, this was a good thing… Awaking that early allows more time for devotions, prayer, and study – I truly did enjoy the couple of hours of Bible reading, prayer, journaling, and studying. Another example of GOD working all things out for our good!
Brother Zachary died yesterday afternoon – unexpectedly in spite of his recent illness. We had a special time of prayer for Mrs. Connie and his family during Evening Praise. He certainly was a man of faith. He was a fighter, daily fighting the good fight. He has left a great legacy and provided an example for us to follow.
Romans 8 is a wonderful, beautiful, glorious chapter on our life of faith! If we would but heed HIS words to walk (read that live daily) in The SPIRIT rather than in our own (carnally minded) flesh, how glorious our life would be here and now! Pride is a dreadful thing.
