And, do you remember the post on this article in the Truth and Triumph Magazine about being “Dangerous” Christians and our battle with the ACLU? —>This is the result of the two “thats” above. I can’t make any public statements in my blog about what is going on, but if you’ll click the link, you’ll be sent directly to a news release from the Alliance Defense Fund, and you can read about it on their website. You may even see snippets about it here and there on national news shows.What I can say ~ is that the five families involved covet your prayers. And, along the way, I can share what the Lord has been doing in my own personal relationship with Him as we have prayerfully walked in obedience to what He has called us to do. God has been so good to all of us. He has filled us daily with strength from His Word, and He has given us His peace as we move ahead in obedience to Him.
Matthew 5:14-16 from The Message is my prayer for us – for all of our lives – YOURS included:
“Here’s another way to put it:
You’re here to be light,
bringing out the God-colors in the world.
God is not a secret to be kept.
We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill.
If I make you light-bearers,
you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you?
I’m putting you on a light stand.
Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop,
on a light stand—shine!
Keep open house;
be generous with your lives.
By opening up to others,
you’ll prompt people to open up with God,
this generous Father in heaven.”
Matthew 5:14-16 from The Message
So dear friends and readers… that’s what’s been going on. I’m glad to finally be able to tell you. I’m so thankful for each of you ~ Thank you for your prayers and words of encouragement to me. You are such a blessing.
From one “light bearer” to another… Shine on, my friends… in whatever this and that that’s going on in your corner of the world. 🙂
