The Alphabet

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'll be good times and yes some will be bad, but... 

Z ion waits in glory...where none are ever sad! 

"I AM Too blessed to be stressed!" 
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. 

Praying to be a Prison Chaplain

There are thousands of men in jail.
My minister friend in east Tennessee, Rev. Ronnie Trent, introduced me to the prison population in Morgan County, Tennessee.

We held several services there last month [July]. "Morgan County" is formerly Brushy mountain.

That's the facility where James Earl Ray spent time.  

Of course I'm always available to do volunteer ministry in the jails, but I'd be grateful for a chaplain position in one of our KY prisons. There are 3 near prisons that retain a full chaplain. I'm praying that if there is ever a vacancy in one of those that I might be considered for the position. Pray with me about this.

Our little AG here at Berea  is involved in many outreaches - nursing homes, the veterans centers and the jails.  Remember "...when you do it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you do it unto me!"

Until next time,
