I Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.
We all are tempted in many ways, because Satan wants it this way,
But praise God we have a Helper who has promised help every day.
All temptations are common to man, and God knows about each one,
He's ready to help any who call upon Him, and will help till the test is done.
God uses temptations to strengthen us, and thereby escape its harm,
Rely on Him for the help He provides, and you will be free from alarm.
When this test has passed, and you ponder how God helped you through,
You will praise Him for deliverance and victory, and all that he did for you. (RP)
This month is missionary emphasis at our church. This morning in Sunday School we will have the opportunity of hearing pastor Don Mogford, West Coast Representative for Shepherds Ministries. Don is the person who took our place when we finished our ministsry with Shepherds. We look forward to the time with him today. Margie and I had the privilege of having this ministry for 11 years. Don is doing a wonderful job and we appreciate so much his love and dedication to the Lord and this ministry. Our son is with us for a few more hours then returns to Stanwood. He and our grandson Natahn have worked all week on one of their buildinigs in Ferndale. It is a slow process but bit by bit they are accomplishing their goal of getting these buildings in good shape. Thanks for praying. We appreciate your support.
