Praise the Lord; praise God our savior! For each day he carries us in his arms.

Psalms 68:19 NLT
https://bible.com/bible/116/psa.68.19.NLT

 When I was kid, there was a popular song titled He ain’t Heavy, He’s my Brother. My sister Susie and I used to sing it for fun and because it spoke to the value of walking through life with each other caring and sharing the challenges that come along our way. If you want a flashback to some mid 70’s sound here is a link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5Ni-HBsOhY. Have fun!

There is something incredibly tender when someone carries us in a time of need. We are vulnerable right now and need help. When others come alongside and help, there is gratitude that goes beyond words. The truth about the powerful nature of loving and caring for each other is it is the character of God being lived out in our lives.

Today, join me in giving God praise. He is our Savior. God is carrying us in his arms. We are not heavy to him at all. He carries us with tender love and powerful strength.

Encouragement: We are all being carried by God right now as we face just how fragile everything we have planned is. In the middle of a pandemic, God is our savior through Jesus Christ. He loves us and is drawing us to Him even now.

Prayer: Dear God, thank You for carrying us as we walk through this pandemic. We have always needed You to be our Savior. Right now, we are more aware of that truth. Thank you, Jesus, for being our savior. Thank you, Holy Spirit, for walking with us every step of the way. Thank you, Father God, for providing. We need You. In Jesus name, Amen.

Creating Beauty

I love to garden. Shrubs, flowers, trees – I love the shapes and colors, the textures and fragrances of each one and how they come together to make surprising and unexpected beauty. Being in my garden feeds my soul. But gardens need care – weeding, pruning, dividing, and transplanting occur frequently. It’s part of the deal – part of the joy – at least most of the time. When it comes to pruning and moving and removing, I am often ...

The Generosity and Understanding of Jesus

There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most. -Hebrews 4:16 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/heb.4.16.NLT Take time to listen to these words. Read, speak and own them. These words are for you and me. So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us ...

Blessings Big and Small

To see Warm Beach Camp empty at a time of year when it would normally be flooded with guests and campers is an odd sight. The past four months at the Camp have been challenging to say the least. Camp staff have made drastic adjustments at work to adapt to government requirements and the lack of revenue the Camp is experiencing. But, in all of this we have seen God’s blessing and provision every day. The blessings come in big ...
