Today's Scripture: "Stir up Yourself, and awake to my vindication, to my cause, my God and my Lord." Ps 35:23

See it.


Live it.

There's nothing as discouraging as being outcast, demeaned or worse yet being ignored while you're speaking. Yet it will happen today to someone around you. The most likely place is in a marriage where there is no other conversation between partners but what concerns money, children and business. Some of those troubled marriages will be repaired by building or repairing relationships with God and the other person. But when isolation occurs in church, it creates a chasm between a person and God that might never be resolved. That's because the church, what Jesus designated to be a loving house of prayer, has become a segregated house of preaching and religion.

Family Life was a project begun years ago in an average dysfunctional church. It consists of a simple pictorial listing of the community that makes up the average church. It is a grassroots effort started by a single person with desire to meet and pray for other members. By exchanging information with them and taking their photo with a smart phone, the names can accompany the photo and provide a means to learn the names of other friends. Later the Family Life page(s) is given to the participating people with their photo included. The product of one person's desire to encourage, edify and exhort the family of God, Family Life is a heavenly idea.

Pray it.

Only with Your support, God, can the hands of men do anything good.
