Everyone bdng Your favodte disht We're Praying to Have a Great Revival See You Therel Today, as we have pre- pared to brace for the storm of Hurricane Irma, let us not forget that the power of our prayers are always heard. Joining together, we can gar- ner the strength of Our Heavenly Father. So, let us not forget who holds the fate of us all. Let us not forget, it is not just during times of trouble that we should reach out to Him, but live it every day. I wish to share this pas- sage with you in regards to the time in which we now find our selves Mark 4:35-41New International Version (NIV) Jesus Calms the Storm 35 That day when evening came, he said to his disciples "Let us go over tO the other side." 36 Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, "Teacher, don't you care ff we drown?" 39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, "Quiet! Be still!" Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. 40 He said to his disciples, "Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?" 41 They were terrified and asked each other, "Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!" Today, are we still terri- fied of the things in our lives, or are we trusting and keep- ing our faith strong in the word of our Heavenly Father? May these words help to bring calm to each of you. Please pass this word on so that others may share with those they know. Let us all rebuild our faith and togeth- er become the channels through which God will spread His light in all our lives. May God's Grace keep us all safe through these trying times. This week, I continue to follow God's guidance as my heart and prayers continue to go out to all those who are suffering from the devastat- ing aftermath of the weath- er that is occurring in areas through which the storms are passing. It is the time for all of us who will, to come togeth- er in giving our support, our prayers, and support of all kind needed to help those who are trying to rebuild their lives in the face of so many hardships. Please.remember, if we just put our hands andshoul- ders together, through prayer and actions of giving of our resources, through the various channels in place to support these causes, we will achieve a greater good for all concerned. Again, I ask all of you to imagine, if these things were happening in your neighborhood, and in some they are, what would you want others to do for you? I am asking each of you who read these words, ff you believe in prayer, say one for all in this situation as ff they were your family. If you believe in other things, such as donating, check with your churches and local organiza- tions in your neighborhood, see who they are that have organized efforts to send directly to the areas in need. Let us unite and share as if we are doing for our own fam- ily. Thanking you all again t t ! If each one of us give just a little bit, together a little bit makes for a whole lot for a great many who are in need of so much at this time. May God bless each of you who responds to His call at this time. Uatil next week, Be safe, and continue to share your "Rays of LIGHT" that you may have in your life's expe- riences. I will be listening and watching to hear what your moment is. Send your emails to tignerfernl@gmail.com. The contest is still on for the selection of one of your sub- missions. Again, congratula- tions to Vivian Smith of Primerose Community. Until next week, may your day be blessed and filled with joy.
