Holly Ridge Happenings

Every once in a while, a ewe will give birth to a lamb and reject it.

There are many reason she may do this. If the lamb is returned to the ewe, the mother may even kick the poor animal away. Once a ewe rejects one of her lambs, she will never change her mind. The little lambs will hang their hands so low that it looks like something is wrong with its neck. Their spirit is broken. 

These lambs are called “ bummer lambs.” Unless the shepherd intervenes, that lamb will die, rejected and alone.

When Jesus Cried Out “It is Finished”

Righteousness was perfected, 

Divine justice was satisfied, 

Blood was shed, 

Sins were forgiven, 

Reconciliation was achieved, 

Death  was conquered and 

Salvation was secured. 

Without love, we feel nothing. 

Without dreams, we accomplish nothing. 

Without God we are noting. 

The key to loving God is to see Jesus, to hold him before the mind with as much fullness and clarity a possible. It is to adore Him.

They gathered His body so tattered and torn it was finished, the Savior had died.

They carried Him gently to an empty tomb as the people watched and they cried. 

The tomb was dark, dreary, and cold as they laid Him to rest evermore. 

They all quietly left not looking back as the stone was rolled to the door. 

Three days went by then all of a sudden the darkness was expelled by a light. 

He had arose, as He said He would do, the morning was so beautiful and bright.

“It is finished”

Righteousness was perfected, divine justice was satisfied, blood was shed, redemption was paid, sins were forgiven, reconciliation was achieved, death was conquered and salvation was secured.

There’s an oak tree in the acorn. Never belittle what God has given you. Never believe the lies of the enemy when he says it’s too small. One day in the future, you’ll look back and see just how far God has taken you, and just how much you’ve grown. Trust the One who makes oak trees out of acorns.

 

Another great week! Hilda Clack from Tallulah and Lawerence Smith from West Monroe come over for a much needed visit. Enjoyed them.

Here for a few days with Ralph Powell were his boys, David from Las Vegas, and Bennie from Dallas. I know he enjoyed their visit.
