So sorry for your painful experience. God will sustain you and give you strength. He did it for me when my Mom passed. He carried me through with such peace. I can't explain it! My prayers are with you. God's comfort and peace be with you and may He fill the void in your heart with His love .
Lisa it was talking from a version of The Holly Bible. I read only KJV and NKJV version God's Truth Word. Thank You God Bless You Indeed.
Pastor Nat yes I know you as well I've seen NIV which I would never read because it leaves God out. We spoke on this as I only read KJV into NKJV. For me the others leave out important words from God. That being said You know how I feel about you.😇
Wow, Caroline. How traumatic that must have been! I'm so sorry for your loss. You are anchored to the immovable one who loves you dearly! He has and will continue to carry you through each and every trial. Thankful for our God!
God's love is truly amazing. I do not want to even hold the door open for an enemy...let alone die! But that's what Christ did for us! Incredible!
God's Word does that! It is all about God. It helps us see how dependent we are on our King! Thank you for your words and for being here!
Hey Joey! I teach from the NLT, but study and preach from the NASB / ESV. The NLT is a paraphrase, which I do not prefer. But I often explain word and their meanings to bring it back. I hope this helps. Great words, btw. Let's serve for His glory!
Jesus is so good to us! I'm glad you are here with us!
Thank you, Barb! God is so good!
#4Lincoln You remember! And you were part of it! Thank you!
Thank you father For keeping your promise Taking care of me listening to me You have always taking care of me and love me and I don't deserve it thank you
The church is where all the believers meet , pray, worship and encourage one another
I'm thankful to have God with me always . He done so much for me . Two years ago I lost my brother Alex I came home to find him dead in his kitchen on the floor . I was so shocked and saddened I didn't know what to do or how I was going to get through this sudden death of my special brother whom I loved so much 😭 . But God is good he carried me everyday and never let go of me . I'm so greatful to Him for His love and grace . I'd be lost without Jesus He is the reason I'm able to go on . He is the reason I get up in the morning . Praise God for His goodness a ever present help in time of trouble .amen 🙏❤️
I'm thankful to God for amazing mercy and grace. I look up into the vast sky and only see speck of the universe. How small I am in the vastness of God’s creation. Yet, God mercifully and gracefully cares about the direction in which my life is heading because of my choices. I thank God that for our earthly lives but how wonderful it will be when we live our heavenly lives. I cannot imagine the Supreme being -our God-loving us such immensity that He would not us perish just because of our stubborn and human hearts, but instead sent His Holy Son, Jesus, to die in our place for our hope. Thank you Lord.
Thankyou Jesus for being there all the time thankyou my Lord and savior thankyou for loving me thankyou for my son Jesse and life itself! I'm truly blessed to be here! Amen !
Joey... I believe it was taken from the Message Bible 😊
Lord i thank you for giving me another chance to worship you. Help me to walk in your way and be a light instead of a hindrance in my workplace.
Wow that broke it down to the nitty gritty! I am very thankful that our Lord has called me into a live of serving and healing the sick. There is so much gratitude from people when they are sick and you did just a little thing; loved them and comforted them. They know! When someone is dying or very ill, they know! Sometimes when time permits and I am able to listen to a Summit session or a Bible minute at work. I plop my computer next to my co-worker and say “hey would you like join me in worshiping our Lord. “ And we do and it’s a beautiful thing. God is with us. And they’ll always ask for more info. We glorify our Lord when we learn and teach each other as we serve Him. It’s really special. In Jesus name Amen!
26 How is it then, brethren? Whenever you come together, each of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification. Pastor Nat I'm unsure in which version you pulled from on 1 Corinthians 3:14... 14 If anyone's work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. We are called to "serve" as Jesus served and remains to do within us each new day. We are to sing, dance, Praise His Holly name. To Uplift Inspire Encourage one another in our Savior Jesus Christ. To live not just be alive. To listen and see each other as Jesus See's, Believes and Loves we His Children. Father far to often we fall into living in the world and not You. Lord how Blessed we are to know no matter how low we think we are, no matter the storm or trial, Praise God for I Thank You Jesus for leading the way at Your right hand in hand You Father bring us through each stronger in You alone! Sure Father there's pain but we are to feel that pain because You feel it. Once we truly feel that Pain Father I Thank You for it is when You say my child I see You I am with You, Trust in Me know that I have overcome the world. All nettles belong to me. Thank You Father for allowing me to come alive within You Jesus our True Savior King Creator Healer Redeemer, King of Kings, Lord's of Lord's, The Only Father that will be. Jesus I'm am in Love with You! For Your ever Loving Faithfulness Promises knowing I we are never alone but simply look up not down to see You smiling upon us, saying I'll always be with You. OH Might God I let You be You and Thank You for teaching us to become more like Jesus. Praise Jesus Glory to God. In Jesus Mighty name Amen

Oh mighty one,as i rise each day i thank you for a new day to beging praying and sharing gods words to friend and family, and i am blessed to do so each day, Amen.
He is always constant and never changing. He is my counselor.
Lord thank you for everything!!! The air that I breath the food I eat thank you so much for waking me up each and every day!!! I praise the your holy name!
Amen. I love you Jesus with all my heart. Thank pastor Crawford for sharing God's word with me everyday. God bless you.
Why do I love God? How much time and how many characters do I have? I love God because He first loved me, and His love never changes, never leaves me. Through some pretty horrendous times - facing molestation, cancer, loss of loved ones, financial crisis, the pandemic and so much more - the Lord has lifted me, strengthened, comforted and encouraged me, never, ever failing to provide exactly what I needed at the precise moment I needed it. But above all this, God sent His Son into the world, just so that He and I could be reconciled and have a true, intimate relationship. No one ever has or will be able to deserve my love and worship more than God.
Thank you God for loving me when I fail. Thank you for always being near me in my times of sorrow. Thank you for speaking to me when I need a friend or a direction to go. Thank you for always giving me the strength on those days when I just feel like it's impossible to get out of bed. Thank you for giving me Hope. Thank you for always looking out for me. Thank you for being you. I couldn't do this life without you. In fact I can't even do this day without you, yet somehow I just know in my heart that somehow, some way you will give me comfort today. You will ease my pain. You will let me know that it will be okay and that I am loved. I almost wasn't going to listen to this teaching today, but Thank You For giving me the energy to do so.... see it's already proving my point that you will help me get passed my pain today and speak to me about Hope for a better future! I love you God, and I'm glad I'm your child!!!!!!!!!! 🙏💕😇💕🙏
Andre that was beautifully stated! What a success story on how God saves us!!! God Bless You!!!! 🙏💕😇
Thank you for this message. Sharing on social media is one outlet I have been doing, but I need to do more.
Lord, thank you for your faithfulness. Your love endures forever. I was once lost caught up in the ways of the world, living a sinful life without regard. Getting caught up in the egocentric world of look at myself and what I've accomplished only to see it all shattered. With no way to go but down, down deeper into the pit, You came and rescued me. Yes, I went through pain and suffering, but You stood right beside me and pulled me through on the other side. I am thankful for You my Lord, my Savior, and my Redeemer. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Outreach is like For Lincoln or loving people in your community
Amen
I like to plant the seeds and watch the spirit make them grow
