It started out a little hectic at the Community Feed tonight. One of our patrons was getting loud & boisterous & obviously upset. Everyone knew & loved this guy - he has a pretty funny personality at times, but other times he can be a little out of control. His emotional & mental handicapps are severe & noticeable, but the great thing about our church is that he is accepted & loved by all, no matter what frame of mind he is in.

As things with him escalated however, God gently nudged me to go & sit with him. I traded places in the serving line with my good friend Vince, and went to sit with him. We knew each other well enough, and although I couldn't understand exactly what was troubling him, God told me just to sit & talk with him & be calm, which is what I did. Things settled down quite quickly. I just love how the Spirit of God can bring peace through obedience.

I don't know that I've really been in God's will much lately as I've been neglecting my bible a lot, however, it's the simple things that God does through me that remind me that He is never far from me. PTL.

Praise God that he is faithful in answering our prayers in accordance with his will. May our wills be unified so that anything we ask may be glorifying to his name and enriching to our ever growing relationship.- E.J.

I'm so glad that God is not like me. Sometimes I get up and the worries of the world are already upon me and I get frustrated. But not Him.
"It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul, therefor will I hope in Him." Lamentations 3:22-24
Oh, I love Him so much. He is able to renew my spirit even when I feel like screaming into my pillow (my way of venting!) PTL. -Andrea
