December 28th -- For Auld Lang Syne

Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep His promise.  Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of His return is drawing near. Hebrews 10:23-25

December 21st -- It's Ok

Be still, and know that I am God!
I am exalted among the nations,
I am exalted in the earth. — Psalm 46:10


Hello Friends!

Wow, the year is winding down fast, the holidays are here and... we've only got two more Friday Night Feasts of 2012! Safe travel wishes to all who are journeying elsewhere to celebrate with loved ones but for everyone still in town...

We will meet tomorrow night at 7pm at Birmingham 1st SDA!
We will supply the spiritual bread and ask that you help supply the physical :)

Our study will begin at 7:45pm -- Zeke will lead out!
Please bring your bibles and the name of one person or situation you'd like to pray for.

This might be a bit long but I thought it was worth sharing... it's from a blog on It's about little things and resolutions... 


The Little Things That Steal Your Peace

When we make resolutions, at the New Year or any other time, we tend to focus on big commitments that we perceive will improve our lives. Resolutions are typically new activities—things that we feel are missing from our lives or that we ought to be doing. But they also have a tendency to add to our lives. They give us new things to think about, focus on, and even worry about.
These are often very good things, and I’d never suggest that you shouldn’t embark on a resolution, however big, that you’re passionate about. But when it comes to cultivating your spiritual health, one thing I’ve noticed is that it’s the accumulation of all the little concerns in our lives that most gets in the way of more Bible reading, prayer, and reflection.
Our God is a God of peace. In Psalm 46, we are told that peace and stillness are appropriate places in which to contemplate our Creator.
What are the little things—the minor habits, the small concerns, the trivial thoughts and activities that keep your mind spinning throughout the day, preventing your heart from settling down into a posture of peace? What little activities or obsessions eat into your quiet time with God, or cloud your day with a tiny bit of extra stress? What little things can you drop out of your life next year that tug at your mind and keep you from peace? Something that’s relatively easily cut out of your life, whose absence would leave you with a bit of extra energy to spend on the things that really matter?

 God Bless & see you tomorrow

December 14th -- The Best Gifts

And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to Him. 19 For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And He gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. 20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making His appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” 21 For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ. 2 Cor 5:18-21

A word from Aunty Ellen, Review & Herald, 10/7/1865

"Prayer is the answer to every problem in life. It puts us in tune with divine wisdom which knows how to adjust everything perfectly. So often we do not pray in certain situations because, from our standpoint, the outlook is hopeless but nothing is impossible with God.
Nothing is so entangled that it cannot be remedied. No human relationship is too strained for God to bring about reconciliation and understanding. No habit so deep rooted that it cannot be overcome; no one is so weak that he cannot be strong. No one is so ill that he cannot be healed. No mind is so dull that it cannot be made brilliant.
Whatever we need, if we trust God, He will supply it. If anything is causing worry and anxiety, let us stop rehearsing the difficulty and trust God for healing, love and power."
