Sometimes it is good to hit rock bottom because it is here that we realize Jesus is the Rock at the bottom.
Sometimes we have to hit rock bottom to give up on our dreams and ambitions. We have to reach the end of ourself. We try this, and we try that in our pursuit of happiness and eventually we discover knowing satisifies. When I say nothing, I mean nothing. Then, by His grace, we realize that we are standing on His infinite love and mercy. We realize that Jesus is our greatest asset and our source of strength. He is our victory. He becomes that priceless PEARL that is more valuable to us than all the other things around us. One thing that amazes me is the persistence of the flesh: it is relentless. The flesh is always present to tempt, seduce, confuse and pull us down. Flesh cannot overcome flesh: our only victory is in Jesus.
- The only thing about holidays is they go by so quickly. I did enjoy my holiday and the time I got to spend with my family. Guess who won the bean bag tournament? Lexi and Granddad. Old Sister thought she had it rigged: some how she and Jeremy wound up on the same team but Lexi got hot and we won it all.
- The holiday has passed and it’s back to work and business; speaking of which: we have a business meeting this Sunday. Along with our regular business, the PSC will give a report, and a time table.
- The MORGAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION will be voting on Ken Blackwood as our new Director of Mission this Tuesday night, September 13. We need to elect two delegates to this meeting. We will do this Sunday.
- June couldn’t get over the amazing crowd Sunday. We expected 160 but had 260. I can count over 50 regulars who were not here so I was pleasantly pleased. One of these days, we are all going to get together.
BLUE LIVES MATTER
Blue Lives Matter to sensible and grateful Americans but not to the National Football League which has been sliding ever more leftward over the last few years. And now it seems the organization has decided 2016 is the perfect time to dive headfirst into the insanity, embracing the racially divisive leftist narrative being pushed about police officers.
The Dallas Cowboys had planned to honor slain police officers with a special decal on their helmets this season, but the NFL said no way.
According to Truth Revolt, The NFL has refused to allow the Dallas Cowboys to display an “Arm in Arm” decal on their helmets during the preseason games. The decal is meant to show support for law enforcement and honor slain police officers.
