As many of you know , the Bible study is back in full swing. I am excited to see the mighty work of our Lord for each of us doing the study. As you know it is on the Book of Ruth which is an awesome love story of all times. Nancy had said something in the video that makes me sad ...that is that so many feel isolated and alone even in our churches today. I pray that if any of us find ourselves feeling that way that we allow the Lord to work in our hearts and get to the root issue of why we are feeling this way as well as realize we are "NEVER" alone with God :
"THE STEADFAST LOVE OF THE LORD NEVER CEASES; HIS MERCIES NEVER COME TO AN END." (found on page 21 of our "Ruth books" upper right corner) the Lord is always there for us and His Love can never be taken from us. Some thing that touched me was on the bottom of page 20:
The Meaning Of Genuine Love: the purest kind of love is completely selfless and unconditional .
Only GOD can love perfectly. As long as we are clothed in human flesh, our love will be imperfect.
I think if we can wrap our minds around that and realize in and of ourselves we can love no one this way and no one can love us this way(outside of God) then we can be more forgiving and less lonely as we find those around us are just as imperfect as we all are. We love others alot of the time based on feelings and feelings as we know often lie to us in fact: "feelings rise and fall, but genuine love endures." (page 21 in book) I pray we all find that genuine love and may we all be touched mightily through the word of God as we study the book of Ruth...................................
As many of you are doing I will be preparing to go to the retreat this weekend due to that and my hectic schedule I will not be posting until some time after the retreat. I pray we all have a week filled with no warfare and all goes effortlessly when at retreat:
Father I pray a mighty work is done this weekend I pray hearts will be changed for a life time.
I pray we would not just hear the message that will come forth however that each of us would live that message in our day to day lives. I pray Lord for travel mercies and for the women to be blessed beyond measure each one of them. Father I pray this as well as many other things in Jesus name amen
until next time..............................
