Did You Know for 17 May 2020


Thought of the Week

Are you living in fear? The COVID-19 crisis, media hype coupled with personal concerns have created its own new crisis, FEAR. Joshua 1:9 tell us “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Read that a second time, we were not asked, suggested nor recommended to be courageous, we were commanded by God.

Following God’s commandments are central our faith as Christians. Psalm 118:8 says “It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.” Today is a good to stop relying on facebook, the media and friends as your inspiration for the day, and instead turn to God, the Scripture, and be courageous.


Prayer

Pray without ceasing” 1 Thessalonians 5:17, just three simple words but some of the most powerful found in the Scripture. We have been praying for Deborah Smith and many of her friends for several months now. Deborah has stage four Ocular Melanoma. She has been admitted to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. Her doctors have suspended the trial treatment she was in, and will begin radiation on her tumors. Please keep Deborah and her family in your thoughts and prayers.


Ocular Melanoma Awareness Month

We are still in OM awareness month, and Friday May 15th, Saturday May 16th and Sunday May 17th are Eye Patch Days. OMF says “Wearing an eye patch is a great way to start a conversation with co-workers, friends and neighbors about OM and how important it is to see an ophthalmologist regularly.”

We will be sporting our eye patches to help raise awareness in our area.


UNITE714

We partnered with UNITE714 last month and are excited about this opportunity for worldwide prayer for the end of COVID-19.

2 Chronicles 7:14 King James Version (KJV)

” If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

We are on Week 8, headed into Week 9 and suggest we all pray at 7:14am and or 7:14pm each day.
