God’s Seeds

We are but seeds in God’s garden, 
His garden on Earth, His delight, 
the Planter of all of the seeds, 
the marvelous Giver of Life.

Planted with love and care, 
we will then take root and grow? 
His help is essential at first 
and throughout the process, we know.

For a seed cannot live without water. 
A seed cannot live without light.
To grow as he wished when planted
we must seek the water and light.

When people walk with God, the impossible becomes possible. Do you know what is essential? Jesus.

One thing we know for sure, is that we will all only have a limited number of days here on earth. So each day we can either find something to complain about or something to be grateful for. It’s really up to us.


I’m still thinking about the article in last week’s Beacon that Mrs Opal Jones put in about little Haley Long. It was so nice that the firemen and deputies did to make one little girl happy. Don’t forget to pray for her!

God has Given Us

Eyes, not to judge others but to look beyond situations. A mouth, not to criticize but to speak the truth. Ears, not to sensitize but to listen and believe and aid those in pain, Hands, not to punish, but to give a helping hand. Everything, God gave us has its purpose. Use them for the greater glory of the LORD.

Coming by one day this week were Freeman and Diane McLemore from Monroe. It had been awhile since he had been here. Was so good to see them!

With His Hand on My Shoulder

With His hand on my shoulder I sail a sea of sin.

With His hand on my shoulder I cannot help but win.

I’ll follow as He pilots me through waters dark and cold.

With His Hand on my shoulder I know I’ll reach my goal. 

My every hope is anchored to the faith I have in Him. 

I know I’ll reach the shoreline though at time the lights are dim. 

He’ll take me past the rocky cliffs and from the life’s storm I’ll be released. 

With His hand on my  shoulder I’ll have everlasting peace.

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. 

God is not going to rewrite the Bible just for your generation. His word remains the same forever and always.
