"We are no longer to be infants, but speaking the truth in love, let us grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ." (Eph. 4:15)

A lthough things are not perfect

B ecause of trial or pain

C ontinue in thanksgiving

D o not begin to blame

E ven when the times are hard

F ierce winds are bound to blow

G od is forever able

H old on to what you know

I magine life without His love

J oy would cease to be

K eep thanking Him for all the things

L ove imparts to thee

M ove out of "Camp Complaining"

N o weapon that is known

O n earth can yield the power

P raise can do alone

Q uit looking at the future

R edeem the time at hand

S tart every day with worship

T o "thank" is a command

U ntil we see Him coming

V ictorious in the sky

W e’ll run the race with gratitude

X alting God most high

Y es, there will be good times and yes some will be bad, but... Z ion waits in glory...where none are ever sad!

"Too blessed to be stressed!"

Quote: The shortest distance between a problem and a solution is the distance between your knees and the floor. The one who kneels to the Lord can stand up to anything.

Illustration:God in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior is able to establish you through the proclamation of the Gospel. The Greek word translated "establish" is sthrizw, v {stay-rid’-zo} has this meaning 1) to make stable, place firmly, set fast, fix 2) to strengthen, make firm 3) to render constant, confirm, one’s mind.

Application: God is able to establish those that embrace the proclamation of Jesus the Christ. His work in each believer purges out all instability, irrational fear, unproductive anger, condemnation, unfruitful acts and wasted mental energy.

The one who submits to God’s work in them through Christ is prepared for service by every situation and all the minute events that lead to the situation.

Assurance: Nothing can destroy the servant that humbly moves toward Christ in every storm, difficulty, insecurity, fear or human inability.

Scriptural Promise:

For the Spirit that God has given us does not make us timid; instead, His Spirit fills us with power, love, and self-control. (2 Timothy 1:7)
