Dear Family of our Lord Jesus Christ,
If all images do not show for you please go to FGGAM.ORG www.fggam.org
Love and prayers to you all……sorry we did not get a CUP out yesterday, we have been swamped.
Yesterday I talked to a family member of the 92 year old women who was raped in a Rehabilitation Center in Albuquerque. This sweet heart of a women is a strong Christian.The family is also strong Christian people, they know God will get them all through this. Please pray for her and the family during this very difficult time. This is very devastating, this is satanic. Thank you for your prayers.
Pastor Bill Ruhl our Vice Chairman here at FGGAM is under the weather, Pastor Bill posted this yesterday:
Prayers appreciated. Some sort of bug hit me yesterday evening, completely kept me from functioning. Awake throughout the night, hit my gut like a sledgehammer, worst gerd I’ve suffered with in eight years, sharp abdominal pain still present. Liquid fast trying to flush me out. Don’t know what I may have eaten, but this is nasty. Back to bed. Glad it’s raining and cool out…cozy!
Let us keep Pastor Bill of Albuquerque in our prayers, we pray for healing! In Jesus name, Amen!
I was hit with severe pain in my stomach area last night at 2am……….it brought me to the floor, but I am feeling better this morning! Praise God!
We have been busy overnights helping people in tough situations………Let me share this with you:
Proverbs 3:27-29The Message Bible
27-29 Never walk away from someone who deserves help;
your hand is God’s hand for that person.
Don’t tell your neighbor “Maybe some other time”
or “Try me tomorrow”
when the money’s right there in your pocket.
Don’t figure ways of taking advantage of your neighbor
when he’s sitting there trusting and unsuspecting.
If we do not help people, no matter their circumstances, who will? If we don’t love on them like Jesus, who will?
Many of you have read this post already……but if you have not please do……..add Bobbie to your prayer list, would you put her on your churches prayer list?
Robin Prater, who writes for FGGAM out of Missouri, also wrote this regarding this tragedy……………..
Dear Jesus, we need You. We are desperately seeking You. Today my beautiful friend will bury her baby boy. How is it possible to accept something so senseless? No mother should have to bury her son. How do you comfort a friend with such an unspeakable loss? There are no words to share. All I can do is wrap my arms around her and cry with her. Her life changed forever the day Donnie was born. He was Your gift to Bobbie. His momma has done her job well. She has loved him with everything in her being. Most of all she taught him about You. On Friday her life changed once again. This time there were no tears of joy and laughter. Heartbreak touched this mother as she was with her baby when he passed from this side of heaven into Your arms. Where is her hope? Her hope lies in You, Jesus. As Your child she knows good-bye isn’t forever. She knows she will see her son again. She is a woman of strong faith. But Jesus, she is hurting. She is left breathless. Today will not be a day she will ever forget. Lord, Jesus, please be with her. Lift her up. Carry her through today and each and every day to come. Give her Your strength, Your calm, Your grace, Your peace. It is my prayer that You wrap Your arms around her and hold her up as she faces the unthinkable. Jesus, we know you are with us. We feel Your presence. We need You today. Good-bye isn’t forever. Please pray for the Boyer family today and all those who were touched by this special young man.
Yesterday I got a call from Pastor Garland Moore of the Baptist Church in Grants/Milan, New Mexico. Garland is also a leader here in our state and nation! We were talking about how busy we can get……..doing what we think we got to do……….but it must be of God, for God………..and he sent me to Romans 8:28…………and then Robin Prater also posted this from Beth Moore:
Too often we think we must be a part of every task. We see something that needs done and we jump in. There is nothing wrong with helping. But, many times we do so just because there is an opening, a position to fill, and a need to meet. We do this without prayer and God’s invite. When this happens we step in when it isn’t our task. We limit God and we arrogantly that if anyone isn’t going to step in we must. Wait and give room for the one to step forward who God has designed for the task at hand.
“God has a task for you-one He planned very long ago and suited for our generation. Remember you are not responsible for completing anyone else’s task, just yours. God desires for us to encourage one another in our tasks (Heb. 10:24-25), but we are responsible only for completing our own.” Beth Moore
From the Message Bible Romans 8: 22-28:
22-25 All around us we observe a pregnant creation. The difficult times of pain throughout the world are simply birth pangs. But it’s not only around us; it’s within us. The Spirit of God is arousing us within. We’re also feeling the birth pangs. These sterile and barren bodies of ours are yearning for full deliverance. That is why waiting does not diminish us, any more than waiting diminishes a pregnant mother. We are enlarged in the waiting. We, of course, don’t see what is enlarging us. But the longer we wait, the larger we become, and the more joyful our expectancy.
26-28 Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.
I also was told this by my neighbor Joan today, She said, “Good luck to you in all you do” and of course I do not believe in good luck……and neither does my dear neighbor Joan, as she was taught years ago that LUCK stands for Labor Under Correct Knowledge!
Let us seek the Lord’s knowledge everyday! Every minute!
