Chalk Talk!!!


I Thessalonians 5:18
 Be thankful in all circumstances,
 for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.

It's difficult sometimes to be thankful in all situations, isn't it?
I feel as long as we're trying our best to live for the Lord and do what He asks of us, He will bless us.  Our pastor made a comment this past SONday about Peter and after spending time in prison for his faith, he threw his hands in the air and rejoiced that he was able to suffer for the Lord.  Yes, we'll be persecuted for taking a stand, especially when others judge us instead of being prayerful themselves about the situation.  But, that's okay....we can show our gratitude even then because HIS love and blessings on us is entirely enough!!!

In HIS Most Precious Love...and with mine!!!

Blessings,
Deb
