Bible Verse of the Day
So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.

Inspiration & Prayer for 7/7/13:

I have been thinking about what independence means to me. During the July 4th Celebration across our nation as I watched the TV, It occurred to me that being monitored by our Government is nothing new. It has happened throughout our history whenever there was a war or threat of aggression. I felt sad for times past when faith in our government, and due process was a given.

Then I thought about what it means to be a Spiritual Being, and a child of God….who watches over us constantly. So what’s new? In one form or another we are watched and evaluated either negatively or positively. Isn’t this the Human Condition? For me freedom is in obedience to my Lord…to the best of my ability. When I am focused on God’s Will, not my will, freedom and independence are my lot in life. When I think I know better than God and decide to change things, or worry about things needing to change, I am out of sync with my Lord and everyone else….”If only you would change my life would be perfect”. I strive to do God’s Will daily in that is my independence and my freedom. What do you think? What is it for you?

” God, creator of all, as we walk through our lives with you, give us the understanding of how powerful a life of obedience and service to you is. Serving you, not out of slavery, but out of a willing heart. When we falter give us the strength to come to you with our circumstances. Help us to know the way you want us to go. Change us as your servants into loving, compassionate beings that love all your creations, animal, vegetable and human. We give gratitude for our lives and abundance this day, thank you for your bounty. Bless us with the clarity to understand you and our walk with you. AMEN” Love, Blessings and hugs, Rev.Judith , M.
