"Happy is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage.
The LORD looks down from heaven; he sees all humankind.
From where he sits enthroned he watches all the inhabitants of the earth--
he who fashions the hearts of them all, and observes all their deeds.
A king is not saved by his great army; a warrior is not delivered by his great strength.
The war horse is a vain hope for victory, and by its great might it cannot save.
Truly the eye of the LORD is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love,
to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine".-Psalm 33:12-19
This past week has provided me an opportunity to see God at work. I've seen people with little association with the National Guard wanting to come alongside and help. If I haven't told you before, our church, Lutheran Church of Hope in West Des Moines is bringing a satellite church to the Johnston-Grimes, Iowa area. The "start-up" missions team of the church feels a calling to support Camp Dodge and the soldiers which is right down the street. Ironic, huh? Now realize, the church is not even scheduled to open its doors until early Fall.....but God has placed the need of these soldiers and families at their feet and they are moving. In the coming weeks, the Johnston-Grimes group is hopeful of sharing some pretty special things....stay tuned.
If you have any ideas that you'd like to share on the subject of support feel free to connect with me at firstname.lastname@example.org Maybe you'd like to put something together for your community and you are inquisitive...that would be cool. Anyhow.....as I mentioned in the headline, "The Battle Lines Are Redrawn". It's time to earnestly pray for the soldiers, their families and God's direction in providing HOPE.
|Is there a mission awaiting you on this earth?|
A little over nine months ago, we launched, "My Father's Voice". Today, I had a visitor from Tunisia, which marked the 98th country to check us out. The reason I am saying this is, according to "Google", there are now 196 countries in the World. So, that means that we've reached the half-way mark!!!! Here is a list of the countries that have hit the blog.
Trinidad and Tobago
United Arab Emirates
