"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:11-13KJV

I AM ENCOURAGED!  And, I want to encourage you on today.  As I was reading my daily devotional I came to this passage of scripture in Deuteronomy Chapter 7 Verse 6-9.  I want to remind you of the promises of God to you, your children and their generations.  Regardless of the situations and circumstances that challenge your lives daily, God is faithful and He will always see you through every test, trial and tribulation.  Today's message is to build up your faith so that you can stand on the Word of God and be victorious every day through any situation.  "For we are more than conquerors through Christ who loves us."

The Poem
I knelt to pray but not for long,
I had too much to do.
I had to hurry and get to work
For bills would soon be due.
So I knelt and said a hurried prayer,
And jumped up off my knees.
My Christian duty was now done
My soul could rest at ease.....
All day long I had no time
To spread a word of cheer
No time to speak of Christ to friends,
They'd laugh at me I'd fear.
No time, no time, too much to do,
That was my constant cry,
No time to give to souls in need
But at last the time, the time to die
I went before the Lord,
I came, I stood with downcast eyes.
For in his hands God! held a book;
It was the book of life.
God looked into his book and said
'Your name I cannot find
I once was going to write it down...
But never found the time'

LOVING THE UNLOVABLE
"He that loveth not, knoweth not God, for God is love." 1 John 4:8
 
Loving the unlovely -- God did that for you!
 
Just because someone is different from us does not mean we should dismiss them or consider them inferior.  You do not want to be judged or dismissed because of your color, culture or any other differences; so do not do it to others!
 
Since God's Word is very clear about us not becoming like others in their sinful practices, we are tempted to conclude that somehow we are better than they are.  That is sin in itself.  On the other hand, we fear that if we accept them we ae endorsing their sin.  No, the truth lies in remaining respectful and accepting of others in the same way that Jesus did.  Whether it was racial differences (Samaritians), lifestyle differences (the woman at the well), or class differences (Nicodemus), Jesus managed to love people as they were, 
while inspiring them to a higher standard. 
 
It's easy to say, 'love the sinner while hating the sin,' but living it out requires practice, patience, understanding, and reliance on our Heavenly Father's guidance.  You can work alongside someone who is having an affair, while praying for them and not having one yourself.  Remember, we ourselves were once sinners, now saved by the grace of God.  Avoid the trap of self-righteousness and act with humility and grace when you encounter someone whose lifestyle makes you uncomfortable.  Learn from them as much as possible.  Allow them to dispel your preconceptions and stereotypes. 
 
Begin to see them not as a collection of demographic differences, but as people loved by God; people who need the same grace you received!

Topic-Advent Wreath and Candles:
Understanding the Meaning, History & Tradition

1. Q & A- Men and Women of God, what do you know about Advent? I did not know anything about Advent until Apostle Loretta Williams talked about it and I read this article about Advent and now I know.

2. Q & A- When does Advent occur? It occurs in the month of December

3. Q & A-What purpose does it serve? To remind us what Christmas is about to remember why Jesus came at Christmas. It is a time of expectation and hope, getting our families involved in prayers and, activities helping them to remember why we celebrate Christmas and ways to commemorate the birth of Jesus through Advent calendars wreaths candles. Advent means-arrival or coming.
