What a friend we have in Jesus!

Posted by Brittany at 12:28 PM 0 comments Links to this post
What a Friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear!What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer!O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear,All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.

Have we trials and temptations? Is there trouble anywhere?We should never be discouraged; take it to the Lord in prayer.Can we find a friend so faithful who will all our sorrows share?Jesus knows our every weakness; take it to the Lord in prayer.

Are we weak and heavy laden, cumbered with a load of care?Precious Savior, still our refuge, take it to the Lord in prayer.Do your friends despise, forsake you? Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In His arms He’ll take and shield you; you will find a solace there.

Blessed Savior, Thou hast promised Thou wilt all our burdens bearMay we ever, Lord, be bringing all to Thee in earnest prayer.Soon in glory bright unclouded there will be no need for
prayerRapture, praise and endless worship will be our sweet portion there.

It really works I have been heavily burdened this week but God really will lift the sorrows from you if you allow Him to. Burdens are lifted at calvary all you have to do is leave them there. Focus on what you have control over and not on what you cannot control. Jesus loves you and will carry through whatever you may be going through. I am getting away this weekend for some much needed relaxation on a ladies retreat, will bring photos when I get back. Hope you have a great weekend!

Gospel Meeting

Posted by Brittany at 2:10 PM 0 comments Links to this post
So last night was the culmination of the Tara COC gospel meeting with Bro. Caleb Campbell. He did a fine job with his last lesson entitled "I want to go to Heaven Because..." His points were as follows I want to go to heaven because:

1. Heaven will be a place of reward; Heb. 12:1-2, Rev. 3:21
2. Heaven is going to be a place of rest; Phil. 2:24-30, 2. Cor. 11:23
3. Heaven will be a place of revival or renewal; 1. Kings 19:1-8, 1. Cor. 15:42-43
4. Heaven is place where righteousness dwells; 2. Pet. 3:10-13 (SIDE NOTE: I laughed a little to myself because I thought about the Aruba commercials saying that Aruba is where happiness lives. I was like well forget that I'm going where righteousness lives!)
5. Heaven is a place of reunion; 2. Sam. 12:15-23, Heb. 9:27

All in all it was a great meeting. I am trying to completely baptize my life in Christian activities. I was speaking with my father who is an elder and a preacher and I said it must be nice to have your entire life wholly devoted to working for the Lord. I mean his job is to study. I am trying to outfit mine in the same light. I said that to say that if you are in the Atlanta area Conyers COC is having a lectureship this Saturday and Virtuous will be there! LOL actually just me... :-) I think it begins at 9 am so let's support our neighboring congregations!

Gospel Meeting

Posted by Brittany at 11:16 AM 0 comments Links to this post

The Tara COC is having their fall gospel meeting this week and I enjoyed a great lesson on the church by Bro. Caleb Campbell last night. It is so important to support your congregation in everything that it does, that you are able to attend. We had a full house and I was very proud to have been amongst the number. It's one hour and really there is nothing on television on Tuesdays anyway. :) When you think of what you could've been doing if you weren't there, it doesn't compare. And your soul was able to get an extra meal or two this week!

Really? What's next?

Posted by Brittany at 11:29 AM 0 comments Links to this post

Apparently to some the Holy inspired word of God is not conservative enough and needs some editing. Who do these people think they are? You can read the full article here, Conservative Bible Project Cuts Out Liberal Passages. What do you think about this... they want to set it up like wikipedia so anyone can edit it. But not just that, what do you think about editing the Bible in general?

So much to do... So little time

Posted by Brittany at 2:06 PM 0 comments Links to this post
There are so many things happening in October I'm super excited. For one the Tara COC is having their ladies day Oct. 31st and I am making scrapbooks for! The Avondale COC is having their ladies retreat in Savannah Oct. 23-25 and boy could I use a retreat. I already know where I will be spending all of my little money, The Paris Market and Brocante! Also, I am preparing for the Virtuous Launch Party (more details to follow), and speaking of Virtuous it launches in 26 days...excitement!!!!

So much to look forward to, but looking back on Sunday and the awesome sermon given by Bro. Eric Owens of Avondale, all I can say is wow. The sermon was called "Watching for the Master" and was about being a servant of Jesus and being watchful for His return. But the part that I believe had everyone in self reflection was when he asked did people want to live their lives always under construction? He said some people are dirt pushers; they never build anything because if they did they would have to move on to something else. He asked what if you did make your marriage great by working hard or rear God fearing children by actually parenting them; then you would have to move on to the next thing. But some people are so afraid of what's next that instead of building anything they just push the same dirt around in different piles for 5, 10 or 15 years! I definitely don't want to be a dirt pusher and I don't want you to be one either. So let's get our hands dirty and accomplish whatever it is we've been pushing around.
