"To present the gospel in it's purest form,
for the reviving of the Saints, for the salvation of souls, through music and through the rightly dividing of the word.
To bring glory to God through Jesus Christ."
DAILY BIBLE VERSE
Thought for the day
"Blessed is she who has believed
that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!" Luke 1:45
As I traveled through Colorado with my husband I am
in awe. I had been on the edge of tears for two days. I was not really sure why until we were about two hours
from our destination. I thought about how truly blessed I am. God has given me every heart's desire, an awesome
man of God (married 30 years), two wonderful children, a home of our own, a great son-in-law and two beautiful grandchildren.
As we traveled through what is said to be "God's country" I stopped to think about all the blessings in my life.
God allows us to return to Colorado at least twice a year, staying there for at least a month to a time. Looking out
the window on my side of the truck I see multiple layers of mountains all around us, North, South, East, and west of us.
The front layer is trees of pine, the next was trees with no leaves, and then a layer with snow covered peaks. It was
beautiful. We saw elk, antelope, coyotes, and mule deer. We went up and over mountain passes, around hair pin
turns and we were careful to not get to close to the edge. The scenery was beautiful, mountain brooks flowed along the
road beside us, through the trees you could easily imagine an early morning with deer drawing strength from its cool water.
Then there were the plains, where you could see for miles and miles. They have a beauty all their own, with rolling
hills and spares prairie foliage.
I then think of all the things God has allowed me to be a part of, I have been
able to pray and see healings, there were blinded eyes opened, walkers and canes left behind, hearing restored, cancer test
retaken and is negative. I have seen the hunger of a newly saved Child of God seeking to know Him better, I see people
who are excited to be in the house of God and they want to fellowship for hours. I have seen children and babies contently
sleep while the message was presented (what a place to raise a child among people who seek after God's will). I have
been blessed to have been able to talk with some amazing people, hearing their testimonies of all that God has done in their
lives. We have family everywhere we go. We walk into a new church for the first time and we are treated like they have
known us forever. We travel from Maine to California in a 1998 pick-up truck and I am truly blessed.
feel on the edge of tears and do not know exactly why, stop and ponder where God has brought you from, whom He has put in
your life, and all that you have been allowed to see and realize that you are truly Blessed.
