Staff Day


I knitted about an inch on preemie hat #3 yesterday. My body is tired from all of the sitting and walking this week. I think I will sleep a lot tomorrow morning.

We have not smelled the skunk too much the past couple of days, so hopefully that means it has moved on.

Convention is almost over. Yesterday was staff day and was a blessing. The thing that I remember most from yesterday was the admonition to not quit. Remember that Joseph, while he was sitting in the prison in Egypt, did not know he was getting ready to be brought out and made the second most powerful person in all of Egypt. He did not know this even 15 minutes before it happened. So if we give up, we may be quitting just a few minutes before everything changes for the better.

Jesse talked about the difference between materialism and manifestation. Manifestation acknowledges God as the source, where materialism gains by the misfortunes of others.

Creflo talked more about true prosperity and how we should have the attitude toward God of “I love you, therefore I am willing to obey your word and not my will”.

Last night Jerry talked about the hand of God. It references either his power expressed in judgment or expressed in blessing. True prosperity includes when the evil one has restored what has been stolen from us.
Colossians 1:9-12 - So we have continued praying for you ever since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you a complete understanding of what he wants to do in your lives, and we ask him to make you wise with spiritual wisdom. Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and you will continually do good, kind things for others. All the while, you will learn to know God better and better. We also pray that you will be strengthened with his glorious power so that you will have all the patience and endurance you need. May you be filled with joy, always thanking the Father, who has enabled you to share the inheritance that belongs to God's holy people, who live in the light.
