Hello from Barbara's Entourage

Weathering The Storm

The weather is somewhat fickle. Or, perhaps the weatherman missed the mark? We are told we will have rain and it never comes. Or, it's not supposed to rain and the sun is to shine, but, instead, it rains bullfrogs!

Today has been the coldest day of the year for us, because of the wind chill factor. It really looked like snow this morning, but we got only a few flurries. And, tonight, it will be even colder, but no snow in sight.

Living out in the country is one of the worse places to have a snow storm. Ask me; I know, since I lived through one ten years ago! We aren't equipped for snow storms in the south, especially in the country. If you aren't privileged to have a four-wheel drive, you just stay put until the snow decides to melt. That can be a long time! And, it seems even longer, when you are without power or a phone.

The storms in our life can go beyond the daily weather. It may be a health problem, financial problems, or a stormy marriage. Whatever the storm is in your life, there is a way to weather it! With Christ there is always a way out. He has the survival kit!

Mark 9:23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

Read Proverbs 3

Heavenly Father, the storms of life are plentiful, but I know your grace is sufficient to see us through them all. Help us to trust completely in you for survival in this natural world. Without you we are doomed, but, with you, we are saved! We give you praise! In Jesus name, we pray.

All Scriptures are taken from the King James Version of the Holy Bible.

Let me tell you about it.

There are no finance charges, no payments due.

My bill has already been paid...it's a prepaid deal.

I couldn't afford the price, so Jesus Christ stepped in and paid it for me.

My name is written on the card for all to see.

The MASTER'S CARD is accessible twenty-four hours a day from anywhere in the world.

The MASTER'S CARD has so many benefits it's hard to list them all, but let me share some of them with you... you might want to apply for your personal card.

Just for starters there is UNLIMITED GRACE. There is no pre-set limit to the amount of grace you receive from the MASTER'S CARD.

Have you been looking for love in all the wrong places? Then, look no farther than the MASTER'S CARD.

It offers the greatest love that has ever been offered.

The MASTER'S CARD gives you access to many "members only" benefits. Want real joy despite the difficulties of life? Apply for the MASTER'S CARD.

Want a lasting peace?

Apply for the MASTER'S CARD.

Looking for something you can always rely on in a jam? The MASTER'S CARD is perfect for you.

Another great thing about the MASTER'S CARD is that it never expires and will never be canceled. Once you're a member, you're a member for life...eternal life, that is.

Membership has its privileges.

So why not apply today?

It's only a prayer away.....

A word or two from ......

Charisma News Service

Juanita Bynum's latest book is touching people's hearts, but in it she also challenges them to deal with their minds. For she warns that a transplant won't be effective without a corresponding transformation.

Read the full story: Ensuring a Successful 'Heart Transplant'

<((< -- <((< -- <(< -- <((< -- <((< -- <((<


Who is anxious for a beloved one's eternal welfare?

We interest ourselves for their success, their prosperity; we ask God to keep them from harm and misfortune; we try to start them well in the world, to make them of reputation, to procure them pleasure.

To spare them trouble, we sacrifice our own ease and enjoyment . . . .

Oh, that is all very beautiful, very right; but what should we do for the soul?

Do we pray to God that this soul may become humble, pure, devoted?

To be continued.
