I have a friend and when she speaks you know immediately that she is not Southern by birth. She quickly came to mind when the Boston Officer via a News Media gave details of the ‘car’ pursuit.
It’s a good thing.
A wise and fitting thing.
18 But as it is, God arranged each of the parts in the body exactly as he wanted them.
19 Now if they were all just one part, where would the body be?
20 But as it is, there are indeed many parts, yet just one body.
21 So the eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you”; or the head to the feet, “I don’t need you.”
22 On the contrary, the parts of the body that seem to be less important turn out to be all the more necessary;
23 and upon body parts which we consider less dignified we bestow greater dignity; and the parts that aren’t attractive are the ones we make as attractive as we can,
24 while our attractive parts have no need for such treatment. Indeed, God has put the body together in such a way that he gives greater dignity to the parts that lack it,
25 So that there will be no disagreements within the body, but rather all the parts will be equally concerned for all the others.
26 Thus if one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it; and if one part is honored, all the parts share its happiness.

And so our message and challenge for the day? To appreciate one another’s differences; to give thanks for our uniqueness; to celebrate the diversity of our accents. 🙂 The choir needs all the voice parts to sing a lovely song.
Day 101 of 2014, praying for revival in the Body of CHRIST.
Thank You, ABBA, for diversity. Thank You for deep, rich colors and for soft pastels; thank You for soft voices and strong voices; for gentle hands and firm hands; for sprinters and walkers; for cats and dogs; for drizzles and gully washers; thank You, ABBA, that You are LORD of them all and You know the importance of each and You are willing to give us eyes to see that importance; help us be willing.
Many friends and family are coming to mind and for them I pray; for strength, for resolutions, for comfort, for peace, for conviction and repentance, for health and healing, for the mending of hearts and family bonding, for the owning of sin and seeking forgiveness, for good night sleeps, and productive days; for new jobs and for peace till then; for courage to wait for love – the holy and godly kind; for all the troubles and all the needs of each passerby we ask You, ABBA, for Your help, not in our own merit but solely because of YESHUA we come.
