The Lord is My Helper...I Will Not be Afraid!

“So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” Hebrews 13:6

I LOVE the verse for this week! Ok, I love all the verses but this one I think we could use to help us at least once every day! Remember, these verses were chosen to use in times of need...for those moments or days when we feel defeated or overwhelmed or tempted, whatever! As you recall, when Jesus spent 40 days in the desert and was tempted by the devil, what did He do?? He quoted scripture. That is EXACTLY what we should be doing as well. It is powerful and the enemy of our souls HATES it! So, resolve in your heart that you will memorize these! If memorizing isn't working so well, start a little notebook to put them in. Carry them in your purse or somewhere handy so you can easily pull it out and read outloud. Remember, the devil can't read your mind! He is NOT all-knowing like the one and ONLY FATHER GOD!

Please don't stop praying for the Saunders. As the shock may be wearing off just a tad for them, the reality of the situation will continue to set in. They have a huge task ahead of them as they go through all the ashes that were left behind. It seems so cruel that they should have to do this. I'm praying that they will find preserved treasures that will give them even a moment of joy through the pain.

ALSO, if you haven't been to our blog set up specifically for their Extreme Home Makeover, please stop by..AND LEAVE A COMMENT!!!!! Look, we need a lot more comments! Let's show those EHM people that we have nominated the most loved, most deserving family that they have ever seen!!! Even if you aren't a "comment" type person, please do it anyway!! You can do it anonymously! It doesn't have to be long, just share a little about what this family means to you, even if you just "met" them! I think it would be so cool to have comments from every state in our country! And even comments from other countries would be awesome!!!
