With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Think on These Things #16 ~ Psalm 37:3

Think on These Things #16 ~ Psalm 37:3

This past Wednesday evening, we had our end-of-year Community Group Bible study with a barbecue dinner.  Everyone brought a dish to share and we had a great time eating and chatting with each other outside on the patio.

The timing worked and we were joined by dear missionary friends who shared their work in Bangladesh.
 Evaluating the many blessings and the difficulties over the past couple of years with the many projects they oversee, Psalm 37:3  is the verse that has been encouraging them as they Point People to the Provider.

their prayer... that we understand God's will,
gain spiritual wisdom.
please and honor God,
bear good fruit,
grow in knowing God,
be filled with God's strength,
have endurance and patience,
remain joyful in Christ, and
give thanks always.
(prayer taken from Colossians 1:9-18)

Has God impressed on your heart something special this week?
Was there a Scripture verse, a song, a quote, a poem or an encouraging word that came your way and caused you to pause.
I'd love for you to share.

As we traveled to and from our family reunion in Kansas and time with our dear friends in ministry Colorado, a song played often on the CD player in our car. Many times tears ran down my cheeks as the words touched deep into my heart. I'm sharing it on my blog and will link it here to share. The words 'lead me, Lord, I'll follow anywhere You open up the door' have gripped my heart. They have become my prayer every day since I first heard them.
