Pals.... Please Pray For Grandpaw Ron

This morning as I was thinking about amazing grace man, I received this in my email and it has been such a help to me that I wanted to post it. I know that amazing grace man has accepted from the hand of the Lord about his having to lose half of his index finger but me, I am always so doubtful and worrying that sometimes I wonder how the Lord can put up with me!
This little write-up has helped me...Please, Please remember to pray for our dear friend and fellow pilgrim, amazing grace man Terry
If you could can you please go to Donna's prayer blog,"By His Stripes" and post a prayer....

Gathering Sticks
READ: Acts 28:1-10
Through love serve one another. -Galatians 5:13
A painful illness had prevented Bible teacher Billy Walker from carrying on his active schedule for several months. He told a group of men that he especially missed being able to preach, but that God was teaching him throughout his recovery.

One day during his illness, as he meditated and prayed, Billy's attention was drawn to the passage about Paul's shipwreck on Malta recorded in Acts 28. There is more to the story than Paul's miraculous immunity to a venomous snakebite (vv.3-6).

This great apostle to the Gentiles, preacher to thousands, worker of miracles, and writer of much of the New Testament, was stuck on an island as a prisoner. Did he lie back and bemoan his condition? Did he think he should be treated better than others because he was an apostle? No! The Scriptures tell us that he chose to contribute to the work and needs of his fellowmen. It was cold and rainy, so Paul "gathered a bundle of sticks" for a much-needed, warming fire (v.3).

Perhaps you've been set aside for a while due to difficult circumstances. Maybe you've reached the time in your life when vigorous activity is no longer possible. Don't despair. Remember Paul's example, and do what you can do-even if it's simply "gathering sticks." - David C. Egner

Start where you are in serving the Lord,
Claim His sure promise and trust in His Word;
God simply asks you to do what you can,
He'll use your efforts to further His plan. -Anon.

God never puts you in the wrong place to serve Him.
