Praise the LORD for a glorious day at church yesterday!
We were blessed to be able to recognize Jessica for completing the “New Life” discipleship course, and Dana for being her disciple leader! We presented Jessica with a Certificate of Achievement and a Bible Dictionary by David Cloud, and Dana with a Chick-fil-a gift card! It is a blessing to see saints excited about growing in the LORD! I look forward to recognizing you as well as you participate in our discipleship programs!!

While I was on the Baptist History Tour a couple weeks ago, Pastor Tom Smith preached an amazing message entitled, “In Times of Darkness”.

Part of my morning Bible Reading this morning was from Psalm 91. This Psalm is glorious, as it shows us how blessed we are as God’s children to have a secret place of refuge with our Almighty God! No matter you face today, know that God is your refuge and fortress, as we trust Him to deliver us, and fight for us, and walk with us through darkness and at noonday! If God be for us, who can be against us! God has set His love upon us, so call upon Him quickly today, and He will answer thee with an active response of deliverance!
- Psalms 91:1-16 “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. 3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. 4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. 5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. 7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. 8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. 9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; 10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. 11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. 12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. 13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. 14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. 15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. 16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.”
Have a blessed day in the LORD!
