Interesting bible study Pastor JD! I even looked at photos of the teal beaches in Alexandria, Egypt and looked at photos of Cedar trees, I was blessed by the communion as well! All glory to God!


The path is narrow, so very narrow. Oh Abba, our Abba, direct us each new day. We are weak, so very weak. Help us our Father God to walk each day, bringing glory to Your Name. May we never think we have it all figured out. May we be meek and humble. May we seek Your face in all things. May we remain in love always. May we never loose our child wonder, looking at life through the lens of love. May we take Your hand of love each day and walk with You in complete trust, surrendering the entirety of our hearts to You, knowing you will lead us every step of the way. May we be dependent on You in every way. May we desire to understand Your heart of love more and more each new day. May we yearn to please You in all that we do, coming to You with a heart of complete surrender. Here we are our Abba, here we are. We give You our hearts. We surrender all to You, our Abba, our Father God. :heart::heart::heart::heart:

love, which is the bond of perfection.

By humility and the fear of the

MATTHEW 18:1-4♥️
At that time the disciples came
to Jesus, saying, “Who then is
greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
Then Jesus called a little child to
Him, set him in the midst of them,
and said, ”Assuredly, I say to you,
unless you are converted and become
as little children, you will by no means
enter the kingdom of heaven.
“Therefore whoever humbles himself
as this little child is the greatest
in the kingdom of heaven.

Therefore be imitators of God as
dear children.
And walk in love, as Christ also
has loved us and given Himself for us,
an offering and a sacrifice to God
for a sweet-smelling aroma.

PSALM 143:8♥️
Cause me to hear Your
lovingkindness in the
For in You do I trust;
Cause me to know the way in
which I should walk,
For I lift up my soul to You.
