and acts on them,
I will show you whom he is like:

who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock;
and when a flood occurred,
the torrent burst against that house
and could not shake it,
because it had been well built.

The best place to find a helping hand is
at the end of your own arm.
-Swedish Proverb

encourage the fainthearted, help the weak,

and for all people.

Thought for the Day 11/13/2008

"The function of prayer is not to influence God,
but rather to change the nature of the one who prays." –
Soren Kierkegaard

As the deer pants for the water brooks,
So my soul pants for You, O God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God;
When shall I come and appear before God?
My tears have been my food day and night,
While they say to me all day long, "Where is your God?"
These things I remember and I pour out my soul within me.
For I used to go along with the throng and
lead them in procession to the house of God,
With the voice of joy and thanksgiving, a multitude keeping festival.
Why are you in despair, O my soul?
And why have you become disturbed within me?
Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him
For the help of His presence.

Psalm 42:1-5

Unknown

Let us go to His dwelling place; let us worship at His footstool -
arise, O LORD, and come to your resting place,
you and the ark of your might.

Living
Perhaps it would be a good idea, fantastic as it sounds,
to muffle every telephone, stop every motor and
halt all activity for one hour some day just to give
people a chance to ponder for a few minutes
on what it is all about,
why they are living and what they really want.
James Truslow Adams (1878-1949)

…but truly, as I live, all the earth shall be
filled with the glory of the LORD.
Numbers 14:21

They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain,
for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.
Isaiah 11:9

For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD,
as the waters cover the sea.

Jesus Christ didn't commit the gospel to an advertising agency;
He commissioned disciples.
And He didn't command them to put up sings and pass out tracts;
He said that they would be His witnesses.
Joe Bayly

……. and you shall be My witnesses
both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria,

and when you see it, don't sit looking at it -- walk.

But the path of the just is like the shining sun,
that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.
The way of the wicked is like darkness;
They do not know what makes them stumble.

Life is like a coin.
You can spend it any way you wish,
but you only spend it once.
Lillian Dickson

Come now, you who say,
"Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city,
spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit";
whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow.
For what is your life? …….
Instead you ought to say,
"If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that."
James 4:13-15
