Bible Study with the Elderly
Thank you Lord for bringing the testimony of the retirement center back into remembrance.
One day, I felt the Spirit moving me into action to volunteer with the elderly, however the Lord led. I made up some fliers and I had a real hard time getting out there and talking with individuals. Eventually, I was strengthened by His might into action. The first retirement center, nothing materialized and the door closed. Praise God that I did not allow that to deter me. I knew the Spirit was moving. Now, I find out that it was because of prayer from one of the ladies at a local retirement center. Here is His testimony –
The Word of God is alive and well. The Living Word. Praise God. Today, a sister in-Christ and I were finalizing plans on shipping her a case of adult bibles for her church. As I gathered the case of bibles to weigh them, I had a fiery dart hit up against the Helmet of Salvation *tink* – “Are you sure? You’re almost out of bibles.” Haha, stand behind me selfish Satan. Yes, I am sure. Yehovah Yireh is MY GOD and I am HIS. Blessed be the Lord –
After reading a brother’s post about Bible Study, I decided to put together a Top 10 Bible Study suggestion list.
The Lord is good. The only visitor tonight at the shelter’s bible study was a 12yr old boy. He walked in and wasn’t sure he wanted to stay. He said “I want to come in, but I don’t…” and I said, “Ya, I know.. that’s the Spirit vs Flesh.” He sat down, praise God.
The words that come out of the mouths of young children are so edifying. This was so cool. He sits down and says “I’m not a Christian.”
The Lord and I did a bible study this morning at an assisted living retirement center. As I readied myself, I worried about not having a message. The Sword of the Spirit: “Don’t worry, I will put words in your mouth.” So I prayed. As I started prayer, the verse that has been speaking to me the last couple of days (see here and here) was on my lips:
Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
I can not stress the power behind this verse enough. My entire lesson this week has come full circle and the Word has now exploded. Check this testimony/teaching out –
Here is another beautiful testimony from God, 2 of them about bibles.
A cpl months ago, I was seeking bible donations so I could use them in ministry work. An old co-worker on facebook seen my request and emailed me a few weeks ago letting me know she picked up a cpl of bibles at a garage sale. We worked it out for her to drop them off the next time she was going through Lansing. Here we have the testimony of the bibles, enjoy! Read more…
Praise Him! Another Praise to the Father for providing confirmations galore.
Confirmation #1 –
A couple of weeks ago, the Pastor of our church asked me to do a few Wednesday night services while he was out on vacation. A couple of days later while at church, I was listening to the Pastor and I had a passing thought about the message that was on my mind for these services (John 15, the Vine). Read more…
