Happy mid-week! Currently, I am engaged in our Georgia-Cumberland Conference Ministers Meetings, which was supposed to be held at Cohutta Springs Conference Center. However, the uptick in Corona Virus cases changed that plan. Instead, we have been meeting via Zoom from 9:00am till Noon. Tomorrow will be our final meeting. Well, that means I did not have to leave home to stay in a hotel room, and therefore, we will still have our prayer meetings at the regular time. So, tonight for the Griffin group at 6:30pm and tomorrow night for the Thomaston group at 5:00pm, those of us who engage together in prayer will do so.
Tomorrow morning is the day that my wife Tracie will have the procedure to help heal the extrusion/herniation in her lower back that has kept her disabled since November 14. I do ask you to lift up a prayer for the Orthopedic doctor and team who will be performing the procedure. It is done as an epidural procedure with the aid of X-ray to ensure they get the anti-inflammatory medication in the right spot. Then we will rely on our God to bring healing as the days go by through this miraculous procedure.
I call it a miraculous procedure because… God has permitted modern medical practices to advance in such a way as to provide healing and relief to millions today. In times past, people who were injured with various injuries like back injuries, just suffered and were completely disabled for the remainder of their lives. Whereas, now, many are restored to health and improved life… all thanks to God’s graciousness to allow discoveries that have saved lives. Oh, wouldn’t it be great if all people who received healing would realize God’s grace to them? Yes, we must pray for our healthcare providers today, as there is so much temptation to praise man, rather than God. There is so much taken for granted by human beings when it comes to what God has done to make His goodness, His love and His salvation known to the world.
I also hope you are tuning into the new sermon series on “Liberty,” that I began January 8. You can help spread the Gospel of the “Three Angels Messages” by sharing the sermon with others through text message or email. Here is a link to that sermon, “The Shield of Faith & Liberty,” for you to watch and to share with your family, friends and acquaintances:https://youtu.be/TOfarCgxlq0
