Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV) Because He lives, All fear is gone. “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27 (NIV) Because I know He holds the future. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) And life is worth the living just because He lives.“I have come that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” John 10:10 (NIV) We have the blessed assurance that no matter what we go through here on earth, He is always with us. Nothing can separate us from His love. We need not fear death, either, because we who have accepted His marvelous gift of salvation are promised abundant eternal life with Him. Life truly is worth the living, because He lives!
Paper Products Drive
Presbyterian Women are conducting a paper products drive for the Warren County Children’s Shelter and Vicksburg Family Development during the month of May. This constitutes our last service project for the current year. Please deliver items such as paper towels, toilet tissue, facial tissue, napkins, plates, bowls, etc. to the library cubby any time before June 1. Both agencies are always so very appreciative of our church’s generosity.
