  • I knew you before I formed you

    According to history, the Prophet Jeremiah was a man who would primarily be looked upon by most of humanity as a failure.  
    For much of his life he was a poor, isolated, unpopular and persecuted individual. In Jeremiah chapter 11 and again in chapter 26, we read that his life was threatened for prophesying the Word of the Lord.
    In chapter 20 Jeremiah was arrested, whipped and placed in stocks for prophesying the Word of the Lord.  

  • Grace Notes

    Whenever I need big-time prayers, I go to the big guns: my 6-year-old great-niece, Leah.
    This past summer when Hurricane Irma was about to decimate Florida, Leah prayed for the “hurricane to go away” and especially that her “Tee Tee Nancy” wouldn’t be scared.
    Irma didn’t go away, but it did decrease enough in strength that at least my house didn’t blow away.
    So, I put that in the win column for Leah’s answered prayers.
    Plus, I wasn’t afraid, so that’s two wins for Leah.
