Trust in the Lord

GUEST BLOG FROM CARL

Psalm 59:16

Psalm 59:16

Proverbs 3:5 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;

Proverbs 14:12 12 There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.

We can place our trust in many difference places. But many times our trust in someone or something does not pan out.

Our family celebrates Saint Nick’s Day each year with filled stockings.  It is usually the official start of the Christmas Season in our home.  Carla Estell has written an Ebook (PDF) about Santa Claus and the true meaning of Christmas.  If you print it double-sided it makes a book, or you can print it single sided and cut the pages in half to form a little book.  Hey, it’s free!  Share it and be sure to include Carla’s contact information.

You can also check out their family website: http://stonestruestory.org/

Free Christmas Book

One of the websites that I manage is devoted to providing resources for children’s ministry (GospelTalks.com).  Eikon Bible Art is a source of printable and projectable Bible story pictures.  For Christmas they have a free Christmas book (pdf).  I got mine so I thought I would pass this along to others.  The free link is good for a week, but the books are quite affordable anyway.  http://www.eikonbibleart.com/index.php?main_page=page&id=19

Will the Lord withdraw from us as a believer in Christ? The Lord told us “I will never leave you or forsake you” (Heb 13.5). As Christians, we have the indwelling Spirit so He is always with us. However, does the Lord test us, to know what is in our heart, as he did Hezekiah?
