CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

I’ve been praying for direction and clarity with work. I shared these same scripture a month or so ago. I received clarity and have submitted my resignation at work for August 2. I feel at peace for the first time in a very long time.

1 Corinthians 2:9 – “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

Philippians 4:6-7 – “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

Proverbs 3:5-6 – “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.”

1 Peter 5:6-7 – “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”

Psalm 56:3 – “When I am afraid, I put my trust in You.”

Proverbs 16:3 – “Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and He will establish your plans.”

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Proverbs 13:20 Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.

John 15:12-3 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 

Proverbs 27:17 As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.

MOLESKIN:

My wife just celebrated her 30th high school reunion and mine is this weekend in Texas.  It’s made us think about our long friendships with people but also think about our more recent friends that are so important to us.  For me, I know the HIMs I’ve met in F3 would do just about anything for me just like I would for them.  Friendships are important and can take a lot of work and effort but they are important so let’s all try to be better friends and be intentional with our relationships with old friends and new ones!

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

I’m out for a week. Commission has the JUCO flag.

Please remember to find a date to Q in June!

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Just like the parking lot at JUCO that will be under construction the next 18 months, we are under construction in our lives every day.  Being under construction isn’t just the physical construction like me losing 40 pounds in the last couple of years.  Our spiritual construction is critical to our development as a HIM.  Some days, I do a decent jobs but most I do not.  That’s why it’s so important in F3 to lead, support, encourage, listen, etc. each other.

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. – 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. – Romans 12:1

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.  – 1 Corinthians 10:31

…but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. – Isaiah 40:31

For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. – 1 Timothy 4:8

I can do all this through him who gives me strength. – Philippians 4:13

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Even though I know the scripture below says not to worry, God knows my path, it will be ok, I still worry.  I’m anxious, worried, and searching for my purpose in life.  We all know God is in control but we are human and have fear and concerns.  I pray each of you know God loves you and is in control…and I pray that I not only say those words but BELIEVE that God is in control and that I will be ok.

1 Corinthians 2:9 – “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

Philippians 4:6-7 – “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

Proverbs 3:5-6 – “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.”

1 Peter 5:6-7 – “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”

Psalm 56:3 – “When I am afraid, I put my trust in You.”

Proverbs 16:3 – “Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and He will establish your plans.”

MOLESKIN:

I used the sidewalk chalk that I bought at Guano’s garage sale. We’re going to miss you when you move back to South Carolina in the near future!

God has plans for us. While we don’t know what they are, we need to be comforted that He won’t give us more than we can handle.
