Any fair assessment of the news reports today would demonstrate we are globally in a mess. It seems we are being threatened on every side of life – with voices all around saying: “ We are leading to an economic meltdown either through inflation or deflation!” “Our businesses are threatened with an increase in cyber attacks for which there is no shield”; “Our personal information has been stolen”; “Our cities are unsafe from the influx of drugs and human traffic”; “Now, threats of rampant disease”; “Earthquakes are happening in unexpected places with unusual frequency!”; “Natural disasters are overtaxing our resources”; “Another credible global terrorist threat?” Where is the safety in the midst of this turbulence?

"And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God." (Ephesians 6:17)

"Facing spiritual battles without the certainty of your own salvation is as foolish as fighting a physical battle without a helmet. God has given us the helmet of salvation to guard our minds from doubt and to give us confidence in every spiritual battle. Consider several times that the word “save” is mentioned in the New Testament: 1] We have been saved from perishing (John 3:16); 2] We have been saved from a perverse generation (Acts 2:40); 3] We have been saved from God’s wrath (Rom. 5:9); 4] We have been saved by grace through faith (Eph. 2:5-8); 5] We have been saved according to His purpose not our works (II Tim. 1:9); 6] We have been saved according to his mercy (Titus 3:5)." (Andy Rupert)
My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations. --James 1:2

"Few of us have the privilege of enjoying problem-free lives. (If nothing else, we have to live with ourselves, and that might be our biggest problem!) Even if we could arrange to escape problems, we would probably be bored and experience little personal growth. 'All sunshine make a desert," states an Arabic proverb, and that statement rings true. Troubles and trials are a part of the furniture of life, no matter how you arrange the room." (Linzy Slayden)

 

 Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.


Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.


Be Thou my battle Shield, Sword for the fight;
Be Thou my Dignity, Thou my Delight;
Thou my soul’s Shelter, Thou my high Tower:
Raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.











HI I AM PATTY AM GLAD TO MEET AND PRAY WITH EVERYONE...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hurricane Isaac ResponseAs ReadyNewOrleans continues to provide CEN with the specifics on critical needs in the area the media has shifted off the story making it more difficult to generate human and material resources. Please visit the Hurricane Isaac response group at www.christianemergencynetwork.org indicating what you may be able to do to assist ReadyNewOrleans.

About 130 schools were still closed today in the Gulf region as survivors were digging themselves out of the flood regions. Emergency Management reports 13,000 homes were damaged and eight deaths occurred. Congressional leaders appear to be insuring that a steady flow of funding for the disaster relief continues, however there still seems to be a concern on the level of disaster funding available as FEMA’s current relief budget stands at $1.4 billion. Often overlooked MS received a visit from FEMA Craig Fugate who assured the community there would be funding available, as a federal disaster declaration had been made. As of September 4 over 4,000 people remain in shelters across the affected region. Meanwhile 90 pollution cases, not unexpected for an incident like this, are being investigated.

Please continue to pray for those affected by the storms and those who are responding. Likewise, take the precautionary steps to ready yourself and your family for times of crisis.
