Overview: As complicated as our world has become, we must pray that God will grant us grace to be respectful to situations around us. We can be confident that He knows the outcome of everything. Keep in mind, when life seems to deplete us of our strength, Jesus will restore our souls and fill us with His abundant supply to help us to endure. God made provision through His Son for us to have peace with Him, thereby, we have access to the throne room of God anytime, anytime. While we are in His presence, let’s pray that God will increase our faith to see our eternal home in glory even though we are still on assignment as pilgrims in the earth realm. In closing, when problems seem to cloud our vision of the promise, let’s persevere by keeping our eyes on the Author and Finisher of our faith, Jesus Christ.

Thoughts from Sister Clovia Thompson –
Jesus Is Calling
Jesus is calling out His people today
Almost pleading with us in a very special way.
Jesus is calling us to respect authority; to bring glory to His Name.
He is calling us to drink from the fountain of faith that will never run dry and always be the same.
Jesus is calling us out as strangers and foreigners of this land,
As we press forward; as we join the holy band.
Jesus is calling the faithful and the true
brothers and sisters for you.
Jesus is calling, will you come to Him today
Don’t quit, focus on Christ without any delay.
