I just turned 49-years-old and I’ll be here for a while, but I truly thank God for blessing me with all of you who love me and who I truly love. “Be careful for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God” – thank you friends and family in Christ for remembering me in your prayers. This is the promise of God that He makes to us!
This is a hard time of year because I lost my wife on Thanksgiving Day 2000. But it is God who keeps me strong. No matter how overwhelming our problem is, we need to have no fear. You are not to let anything dismay us – for God says He will strengthen and protect us! In fact, He
promises that He will never leave us and He will hold us up and make us adequate for ANY situation. Let’s accept this great fact. Hold this verse strongly in our hearts until it sends it’s rugged courage throughout our entire life!
My prayer is that God will bless all the Saints for Thanksgiving, a blessed Christmas, and pour out His blessings on you all for the New Year 2016.
