Verses for Sunday followers


Peaceful soul!


I head down the blacktop road slightly faster than normal.  Once again, I am rushing against time. I feel the air brush past my lips and my hair flips along the way. I inhale just long enough to pause and realize there is a feeling of calm and peacefulness in my gait. I gaze in the distance to see the clouds rolling away and again feel the air sweep past my face. I take a deep breathe and suddenly the chirps and the tweets of my morning friends are alive all around me. I allow myself to say, “Thank you, Lord!”  I am in such awe of the world you made and all the beauty which encompasses me on my morning routine.  I head around the corner and my destination comes into view.  I allow the morning sun to warm me and soothe my aging bones. I am reminded of my many blessings which I take for granted and I am grateful for the simple pleasures in life. My destination is here: my bus stop.  It’s time for another day to do the Lord’s will.

Psalm 118:24     

King James Version (KJV)

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

I said YES ~ Secret Prayer Sisters



This online bible study, the book and Lysa have encouraged me to be a “YES” person.  At the end of our Sunday School year, we were all asked what would you like to see or do for the following year.  Being new to this church, I brought up the idea of the “Secret Prayer Sisters”.  Many had not heard of this and wanted to know more, so I explained how the program worked at my last church.  It appeared to be well received and then I heard the underlying ~ who will take on this role of facilitating.  At the time, I only made the suggestion.

Well, since June, God has been tugging at my heart.  Brenda ~ you can do this program and lead it with success.  You have the means and the knowledge to carry this out and reach members in the church. For reasons I don’t understand,  many ladies of my church have not become involved with our Adult Sunday School Program.  This just might be a small way of connecting these ladies.

Of course, I need to research and be sure I can develop this program.  My goal is to get 50 ladies involved at my church.  Why 50, because we celebrate our 50th Anniversary at church this year and 50 is a magically number.


Research:  meaning of secret

secret: not know or seen or not meant to be know or seen by others.

Research: what does the bible say about unseen

Matthew 24:36

“But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.

Just as we do not know when Christ will return, the Secret Prayers Sisters will not know who is faithfully praying for them throughout the program period.

Just as the online bible study, brought about many many prayers to many Sisters of who we did or did not know, I believe each and everyone of us were touched in several astounding ways and ways we have yet to comprehend or see.  I want this to happen with my 50 sisters in my congregation.  Just imagine 50 ladies in the same church, praying and encouraging each other in their walk of faith.

I am proud to be a “YES” girl and overjoyed # I said Yes.
