Bible Study #1

For those of you who have been praying for the evangelistic Bible study that Dave and Jeff are beginning in our home, here's a little update. Last night was our first get together, and we had a group of 5 others, besides Dave and Jeff. There seemed to be good interest and discussion. Pray, pray, pray for the others who were invited. Pray that the Lord will draw them to Himself. Pray that those who came last night will come again. Pray that Dave will have wisdom from the Lord as he leads and that it will be understandable to all those who come. We so appreciate your prayers! This is the Lord's work, and He longs for all of us to know Him as Savior. So we trust in Him.

A friend recently shared these verses with me, and I found them encouraging:

"But I will hope continually
And will praise You yet more and more.

My mouth will tell of Your righteousness
And Your salvation all the day,
For I do not know their limits.

I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD;
I will make mention of Your righteousness, of Yours only."

Psalm 71:14-16

Thanks for sharing these verses Rachel. It seems lately that all I can do is go in the strength of the Lord. Yes, this is good! He has been faithful to carry me when I am "feeling" so weary.

That's exciting! Are these neighbors or fellow employees?

We'll be praying.

I especially like:
My mouth will tell of Your righteousness
And Your salvation all the day,
FOR I DO NOT KNOW THEIR LIMITS! :)
