Thoughts From Today




 Photos taken over the last week, notes taken during today's message at church:


"Faith means being sure of the things we hope for and knowing that something is real even if we do not see it." Hebrews 11:1




"Without faith no one can please God. Anyone who comes to God must believe that he is real and that he rewards those who truly want to find him." Hebrews 11:6




Trust God and His word - He is our security. Don't look for security in appearance, uncertain riches, position, family or intelligence.




You (me, everyone) are valuable right now as a person......
                        YOU are created in God's image, to reflect God. 
                        YOU were created with God given talents, abilities and gifts.
                        YOU are valued by God enough to redeem you at the cross. 
                                                  God values us greatly.







"Believing you are valuable to God is a key to a successful life,"
                                                                               Ps Jon concluded today.




I believe all the above is true and will ponder it further.
