A Tuesday Morning Prayer and Message!

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

Aloha Team Members! We are one day closer to the New Year. Praise God!

Prayer: "Holy Father, Merciful God, whose love is so wonderful and awesome, who gave us His One and only Son to save us from our sins. Thank You, Father, for Jesus, for his love and sacrifice. From the beginning, we have heard your message...that we should love one another as You have loved us. You, Father, are our God and our example of love and how to love. Help us Father, not to just talk and sing about love, but to put love into actions and make it real. It is your love that teaches us, guides us, soothes us, sustains us, and saves us. May we love one another from now on, in deeds as well as in words, even as you have loved us. This we pray in the name of Jesus our Lord, Amen!"

Message: How then, does a prudent man differ from a fool?
1. Prov 22:3 - If you know a certain course of action is likely to lead you to sin, does it make good sense to start down that path? Solomon says a prudent man will foresee the evil and not go down that path. But the fool will not foresee the evil, will go down that path and will be punished for it.
2. Matt 26:41 - Teaches us what we should do to avoid temptation:
a. Watch and pray that we do not enter temptation and sin.
b. Be on your guard and not asleep or blinded by your desires to enter temptation.
c. Be aware that our spirit may be willing not to sin but our flesh is weak.
d. Learn to look through the eyes of Jesus and see the evil that awaits us.
e. Keep your focus on Jesus and your heart on His word.
f. Let love for Jesus and not our own desires be our guide.
3. To Be Continued Tomorrow!
Heed the words of Jesus and you will be blessed instead of being punished. May God bless each one of you today with His Love and Mercy. In His Love, Vic.

A Monday Morning Prayer and Message!

Monday, December 27, 2010

Goooooooooood Morning Team Members! With Xmas behind us, let's focus on the New Coming Year! Praise God!

Prayer: " Heavenly Father, Glorious God, You, and only you alone are the True Living God, our God, and we honor You as our God for your love, goodness, and care for us , for no one cares for us like you do. Teach us O God, to walk our talk! Teach us your way, help us to walk in your holy truth as we appraoch the end of this year, and look forward to New Coming Year. Unite our hearts in love and in fear of your name, for it is our best that you want, and not the dregs of our exhaustion. Guide us in your holy path so we can always walk our talk, just as Jesus Christ our Lord did: serving, forgiving, teaching one another, and encouraging one another. This we pray and ask in the name of our Lord and Savior, Amen!"

Message: Consider the influence an act we do may have on us!
Jesus, in teaching his disciples to pray in Matt 6:13, said we should pray that we be not led into temptation, but that we may be delivered from all evil. This is a plea for the providential help of God in our daily confrontation with the temptation of sin. God does not tempt us (James 1:13-14), but He does test us in order to give us the opportunity to prove our faithfulness (Walk our Talk). Therefore, let us pray to him daily as we WALK OUR TALK. May God help us all to start our holy Walk now and not wait until next year. God Bless Everyone, Vic and Mary Lou.

    So inspiring! I am looking forward to more encouragement from you as we start a new year with new hopes and goals. Remembering to put God FIRST will update my Sparks program. It is much better than trying to squeeze in some time with our Creator.

Title: Shine, Jesus, Shine!

1. Lord, the light of Your love is shining, In the midst of the darkness, shining;
Jesus, Light of the World, shine upon us, Set us free by the truth You now bring us;

Refrain:
Shine on me, shine on me. Shine Jesus shine, fill this land with the Father's glory,

A Saturday Morning Christmas Hymn!

Saturday, December 25, 2010

MERRY XMAS EVERYONE! Here is long-favorite hymn of many: O HOLY NIGHT!

1. O holy night, the stars are brightly shining, It is the night of the dear Savior's birth;
Long lay the world in sin and error pinning, Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices, For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn;
Fall on your knees, Oh hear the angels voices! O night divine,
O night when Christ was born!
O night , O holy night, O night divine!

May the blessings of heaven flow down to every heart and soul, not just today, but from now on and always. God Bless, Vic and Mary Lou.

  


A Friday Morning Xmas Hymn!

Friday, December 24, 2010

Gooooooooooood Morning Team Members! Here are the last two verses of SILENT NIGHT, HOLY NIGHT!

3. Silent night, holy night, Son of God, Loves pure light,
Radiant beams from thy holy face, with the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus , Lord at thy birth, Jesus , Lord at thy birth.

4. Silent night, holy night, All is calm, all is bright,
Round yon virgin mother and child, Holy infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace, sleep in heavenly peace.

Merry Xmas Everyone, from our house to yours.
In His Love, May God Bless Each and Everyone of you,...Vic.

    My fave of all time is the 3rd verse of Away In A Manger:

Be near me Lord Jesus I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever and love me I pray.
Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care
And fit us for heaven to live with Thee there.

A wonderful prayer for any time of year (I think)!
June :)
