A Monday Morning Prayer and Message!

Monday, December 06, 2010

Goooooooooood Morning Team Members! What a wonderful weekend! Thank you for all your responses and comments. Praise God!

"Heavenly Father, Eternal God, how bless we are to have you as our God. We look around us and see all things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small, all things wise and wonderful, and You, Our God, who created them all.
Thank you for your beautiful world and all the creatures who inhabit it. Give us wisdom and balance in fulfilling our role as caretakers of it. As we stand in your mercy and revel in your protection, let us shout aloud with joy: You alone are our God! You alone are our Redeemer! You alone are our Hope! Infold us in your blessings and guide us on our journey to glory. This we pray in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen!"


As we consider Question #2, let's look at how we can use "TIME and OPPORTUNITY". Life on this earth is made of time, but in the Life to Come, time is not a factor. God has given us this time to serve Him, to prepare us for the Life to Come. So how we use out time is most important. Not only has He given us time, but He gives us also opportunities and instructions on how to serve wisely:
1. Gal 6:10 - Teaches us as we have opportunties, we are do "WHAT"? Do Good unto all men, especially those of the household of faith. Doing good refers to the ministry of Restoration (Gal 6:1). It's bearing one another's burdens (Gal 6:2). It's supporting teachers (Gal 6:6). It's showing us to live according with the Spirit leading (Gal 6:8). And it's perservering and reaping (Gal 6:9). True believers are to minister first to Christian (Those of the household of faith), and second to non-christians (Those lost in the world). So how are you using your time and opportunties?
2. To Be Continued tomorrow!

May heaven's blessings and Word touch your hearts today and teach you how to be a Good Caretaker. In His Love, Vic.

A Saturday Morning Prayerful Hymn!

Saturday, December 04, 2010

Title: O Master, Let Me Walk With Thee


1. O Master, let me walk with thee, In lowly paths of service free;
Tell me thy secret, help me bear, the strain of toil, the fret of care.

2. Help me the slow of heart to move, By some clear, winning word of love;
Teach me thy wayward feet to stay, and guide them in the homeward way.

3. In hope that sends a shining ray, Far down the future's broading way;
In peace that only thou canst give, with thee, O Master, let me live.

Have a wonderful weekend and God bless you, Vic.

    Thank you Sweetie for lovely the start to the day

I cannot, dare not, walk alone;
The tempest rages in the sky,
A thousand snares beset my feet,
A thousand foes are lurking nigh.
Still Thou the raging of the sea,
O Master! let me walk with Thee.

    Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers
But to be fearless in facing them.
Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain
But for the heart to conquer it.
Let me not crave in anxious fear to be saved.
But hope for the patience to win my freedom.

A Friday Morning Prayer and Message!

Friday, December 03, 2010

Aloha Team Members! Beautiful day yesterday and a promise of another beautiful day today....PRAISE GOD!

"Heavenly Father, Holy God, we are not ashamed of the Gospel of our Lord, because it is Your power for our salvation, and not just for us, but also for all who will believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and follow Him. There is no story told or written like the Gospel Story. It's a story that changes life, a story of redemption and forgiveness; a story of love and faithfulness; a story of grace and truth. It's a story of the price You paid for our sins. It's a story of blessings that calls us to hear, believe and obey. It's a story of heaven come down to earth, of Your Great Love. It's a story of your Mighty power, a righteousness revealed to us for a better way to live. Give us friends who will be attracted to this wonderful story as they see us living it each day. This we pray in Jesus' nmae, Amen!"

As we continue to look at ABILITIES and EFFORT, we come to see our role more clearly in life:
1. 1 Cor 15:58 - We are beloved of God, called to be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the good works of the Lord.
2. 1 Cor 12:12 thru 27 - We are all members of the one body, the Lord Jesus Christ, and in Him, each of us uses the gifts we have received to the glory of God.
3. 2 Cor 8:3 thru 5 - There is power in the gifts we have received so we may do God's will and bring glory and honor to Him.
4. Heb 6:12 - We are not to be slothful, but followers of Jesus, who is our example of good works.
5. 2 Pet 1:5 thru 8 - We are to add to our gifts so we can grow spiritually in the graces of the gifts we have been given.
Monday we will look at TIME and OPPORTUNITY!
Till then, we will share some hymns with you. Have a Wonderful Weekend. We'll see you again Monday! In His Love, Vic.

A Thursday Morning Prayer and Message!

Thursday, December 02, 2010

Gooooood Morning Team Members! Beautiful weather yesterday...mowed the yard...Praised God!

"Heavenly Father, Gracious God, we know that every life experience we have is meant to teach us and draw us neaer to You. Thank You for loving us so much!
We know the success follows surrender, for in all things You work for the good of those who love you in return, and who follow and obey Jesus our Lord. Help us to overcome our stresses, our weaknesses, our shortcomings, our fears, and our unfaithfulness. Ennable us to be caring and insightful, to stand by what is desired and good, to be characterized from deep inside of us to devotion and determination to do your will...to surrender to You so the our life may become successful in glorifying You. You have plans for each of us, and our submission to You, based on a little knowledge and a great-deep faith, it will lead us to glory with our Lord. Father, we surrender all to You! This we pray in Jesus' nmae, Amen!"


As we continue to look at "ABILITY and EFFORT", the next question is, "For what purpose did the Lord purify us?" Titus 2:14 teaches us that Christ purified us unto Himself as a peculiar people who are zealous of good works. Thus, we were given GIFTS from God according to our abilities for those good works. How then should we serve the Lord? Rom 12:6-21 show us how to serve the Lord:
1. Hate what is evil and cleave to what is good.
2. Be kindly affectioned one to another.
3. Be fervent in spirit to serve the Lord.
4. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, continue constantly in prayer.
5. Give to the needs of the saints, practice hospitality.
6. Bless those that persecute you.
7. Rejoice with those that rejoice, weep with those that weep.
8. Have the same mind one towards another.
9. Repay to no man evil for evil, provide things honest and good.
10. Live peacefully with all men.
11. Avenge not but give place unto God's wrath.
12. Be not overcome by evil, but over come evil with good.
To Be Continued Tomorrow!
May God's Blessings illuminate the way for you today.
In His Love, Vic.

    Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

Thank you
