Give It to the Lord

It has been a busy week for a lot of people.  I have many friends with a whole lot on their plates right now.  I have some who are looking for new jobs, some who are battling against cancer and other ailments and there are some who are trying to cope and move forward through the recent loss of a loved one.  “Busy week” just doesn’t seem to sum it up very well.  I have some friends who need your prayers.

As I have been praying for them I have been mindful of a certain verse.  Jesus says to His disciples in John 15:5, “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.”   I know that often times when we have heavy loads to bear or when there is much to do we often try to take those things on in our own power.  We need to remember that we have a Savior who not only bore our sins for us but who is also is willing to bear every care and anxiety we have.  I have some friends that have a lot going on right now.  I have some friends who have some things to do that they cannot do on their own.  Please pray that they will allow the Lord to strengthen them.  If you have some things that need to get done, give them to the Lord.  Apart from Him you can do nothing.

It’s been a busy week Lord
With so many things to do,
There is still plenty on the list
Before the tasks are through.

So help me do my best Lord
As I go and make my plans
To take that list of mine
And place it in Your Hands.

I have been blessed to have served as a pastor, a chaplain and to have been involved in other ministries throughout the years. My wife Marta and I have been blessed with a wonderful family that includes our daughter, her husband and their two daughters and our son and his wife and their son. Each of them are very special to us so please keep them all in your prayers. One truth that I always try to share with people I meet is that anything God asks you to do, He will help you to do. God has your back.
