God's Peace


I will BOTH lie down in peace AND sleep; for You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety. Psalm 4:8

Do you have problems sleeping?

I read an article titled: “Three Reasons why you can’t sleep”.

Reason #1: Too much caffeine

Reason #2: Sleeping disorders: Insomnia, Sleep apnea, Restless leg, Narcolepsy (too much sleeping in daytime which prevents night sleeping) and snoring (my question is does snoring keep the person who is snoring from sleeping or others?)

Reason #3: Stress

David in Psalm 4 is dealing with “stress caused by other’s mouths”! Take a moment and read the whole Psalm. David is dealing with people who are saying ugly things and untruthful things. How do you cope with what others are saying? Do you allow what others say to cause you STRESS? Does that stress in turn keep you from sleeping?

This Sunday we are going to continue our series of “Walk this way” messages about the fruit of the Spirit. This week’s message is going to be “God’s Peace”. I don’t know how well you sleep or how well you deal with stress but this week’s message I pray will help with each of these problems.

PRAYER NEEDS: Remember the McCurley family, Bro. Jim a former pastor of PBC died this past weekend and his funeral was Thursday, April 26th  in Haskell with the burial in Wichita Falls. Praise for Rain,

 

What’s happening?

 

Youth Fund Raisers

               Diamond Ring Donated by Shea Jewelers is being raffled by our youth to raise money for camp. Tickets are $10 each or 6 tickets for $50

 

               Mexican Pile-On lunch and dessert auction Sunday, April 29th following our morning service. Bring your favorite desserts for the auction and or make a purchase or two or three and help our youth with funds for their Glorieta Youth Summer Camp.

 

Door to Door!

               VBS is just a month away! We need to do some door to door visitation in our neighborhoods to hand out information about VBS. Target dates to get as many as we can to join us in this outreach will be May 6th (Sunday pm), May 9th (Wednesday pm) and May 27th (Sunday pm). Consider being a walker or driver to help us reach as many households as possible with a personal invite to our church and to our VBS!

 

An Important Need:

               We are needing of a nursery worker. I know this is a difficult position to fill so please pray that God will lead the right person to assume this responsibility.

               We are needing this person “Yesterday”! Please it is very important that until we can fill this position we need someone “EACH WEEK” to be in the nursery. We do have guests who bring children, and we do have church families who have children and we “MUST” have someone who can be in our nursery or truth be told those who need it will STOP coming.

 

Final thought: One of Bro. Jim’s sons at his funeral service mentioned this Psalm and this verse made me think about our new sermon series “Walk this Way”. The verse is Psalm 1:1-2 “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scornful, but his delight in the law of the LORD, and in His law, he meditates day and night.”

How are you walking? Where do you go for “counsel”? What fruit are you producing?

 

 

See You Sunday, thanks for the prayers.

Your pastor and friend

Bro. Keith
