Pastor Paul's Paragraphs - July 2015

JEREMIAH 31 - 38 And they shall be my people, and I will be their God. 39 I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear me forever, for their own good and the good of their children after them. 40 I will make with them an everlasting covenant that I will not turn away from doing well to them; and I will put the fear of me in their hearts, that they may not turn from me. 41 I will rejoice in doing them good, and I will plant them in this land in faithfulness, with all my heart and all my soul.

Jeremiah was a worry wart preacher, who prophesized six hundred years before Christ. He wailed on and on for forty eight chapters in his Old Testament book about what Israel was not doing, hence the nickname "Weeping Prophet".

I believe God sent me to Rusk. Each and every time I asked God why He sent me here, God has answered with this verse from Jeremiah, "I will make with them an everlasting covenant that I will not turn away from doing well to them". Read More..........

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
May the rain fall soft upon your field;
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
