Someday, we are all going home. Christ has a home prepared for those that are ready to go to Him and abide with Him.
This writer went to Girdner to see grandkids in their Christmas play. It was a very good program.
Dec. 12 – Wednesday evening service began praising the Lord in song. Bro. Hi Lambeth took prayer requests/praise reports. We have lots of concerns but the Lord hears and cares. Bro. Jack led us in prayer.
Bro Hi read Jeremiah 28.
There are false prophets even today. Preachers are telling the people what they want to hear. Not telling them what God says. Shame on any that do this. They will have to face the Lord for this. This is so sad that people believe a lie instead of the Bible.
Good thoughts and great scriptures were shared. Sometimes we are tired or not feeling good, but we always feel better for being in God’s house.
Sis. Melba Austin taught our youth a lesson. So thankful for the few we have. Thankfully, they seem to want to learn.
