HE GATHERS EVERY TEAR DROP
REGARDLESS OF THE CIRCUMSTANCE REGARDLESS OF THE FEAR
REGARDLESS OF THE PAIN WE BEAR; REGARDLESS OF THE TEAR
OUR GOD IS EVER IN CONTROL PERFORMING AS HE SHOULD
AND HE HAS PROMISED IN HIS WORD TO WORK THINGS FOR OUR GOOD
BUT AS A LOVING FATHER WOULD, HE SOMETIMES LETS US CRY
YOU CLEANSE THE HURT OUT OF OUR HEART TO WASH IT FROM OUR EYE
YET GENTLY GATHERS HE THE TEARS WITHIN HIS HANDS TO STAY
UNTIL HE TURNS THEM INTO PEARLS
AND GIVES THEM BACK SOME DAY
PUT THOU MY TEARS INTO THY BOTTLE. ARE THEY NOT IN THY BOOK?
HERE WE SAY THE LAST RITES OF THE LIVING TO THE DEPARTED
EARTH TO EARTH, ASHES TO ASHES, DUST TO DUST
IN COMMITTING THESE ASHES TO THE GRAVE THE DUST RETURNS TO EARTH JUST AS IT WAS
THE SPIRIT HAS GONE TO GOD WHO GAVE IT.
I HEARD A VOICE FROM HEAVEN SAYING BLESSED ARE THE DEAD WHICH
DIE IN THE LORD. FROM HENCE FORTH YEA SAITH THE SPIRIT THAT THEY
MAY REST FROM THEIR LABORS, FOR THEIR WORKS DO FOLLOW WITH
THEM, FOR THEY THAT SLEEP IN JESUS SHALL GOD BRING WITH HIM AND
OVER SUCH THE SECOND DEATH HAS NO POWER
AND NOW MAY THE PEACE OF GOD WHICH PASSETH ALL
KEEP YOUR HEARTS AND MINDS THROUGH CHRIST JESUS
THE LORD BLESS AND KEEP YOU
THE LORD MAKE HIS FACE SHINE UPON YOU
AND BE GRACIOUS TO YOU
THE LORD LIFT UP HIS COUNTENACE UPON YOU
AND GIVE YOU PEACE

Today I would like to look at a verse of scripture that everybody knows, but I feel not tOo many understand.
Psalm 23:1 "THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD, I SHALL NOT WANT."
If the Lord is our shepherd then we must be his sheep. Sheep are funny animals needing constant care. They need someone to watch out for them as they are like a two &MDASH; year &MDASH; old at a mud puddle. They have to jump in because it is there.
Did you know that there are different kinds of sheep personalities?
One: The solitary sheep. This sheep always strays from the flock and refuses to eat with it. He is a loner.
Two: The hermit sheep. Very similar to the solitary sheep, he stays away for different reasons. He refuses to be sheared even though it is good to be sheared.
Three: The wandering sheep. This sheep will just wander away. He sees a patch of grass up the hill and off he goes. He just wanders around in a daze for no reason.
Four: The cast sheep. A cast sheep is a pathetic sight. He is the worst one for getting himself into trouble. He will lie on his side in the damp grass and slide into a gully and then he kicks and screams because being on his back, he cannot turn over to get out. Without the shepherd's help, he will die there. This sheep needs constant care. Can you see yourself as one of the sheep?
People and sheep are fickle; you have them for a while, then they see something better, off they go.
Let’s look at the second half of verse one. “I shall not want.”
The Lord is our shepherd and make no mistake, we are His sheep. He is there for us 24/7. He will meet our needs as He promised He would. He knows our thoughts before we think them. He will meet our needs, not what we want because we as sheep only think we know what we want. Our wants and our needs are totally different.
We need Jesus in our lives. We need Him to take care of us. We were born in His image and, like sheep fail miserably. We need His constant care.
Today do you believe in Jesus? Is He caring for you and meeting your needs? If not, ask Him to come into your life and forgive you of your sins, and rebuild your life, and make you a new person. Jesus accepts everybody regardless of where you are at in your life. Accept Him today!
Rev. Edward Bull
Who is the best? Who has the most or the biggest. We are obsessed with that question. Competition, it's all around us today, everywhere we look, even in the days of Jesus. One day the disciples asked Jesus “Who of us is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven?" (Matthew 18:1) How would you have handled this question? Jesus called a little child and had him stand among them. I assure you that unless you change and become as little children you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven. Therefore anyone who will become humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. (Matthew 18:2 — 4)
The child looking at these grown men not knowing what to say, was dumbfounded. Then the child looks into the Master’s eyes where he sees love and acceptance. I think that look stayed with him for the rest of his life. What Jesus wants us to see is what He saw when He looked at this child; He saw innocence. He saw humility. He saw trust. All of which the disciples had no great abundance of at this time. Jesus said, “It is not about the size of our shadows, it is about the size of the shadow on our hearts called pride."
It is so easy for us as adults to explain away our worry as concern, to view our own selfishness as strength. We must be aware of that kind of strength. Oswald Chambers once said that what we often call strength God calls stubborn weakness. By holding onto control, we are trying to be the parent in a parent — child relationship with God.
The disciples were asking who would rank highest in Heaven. Jesus answered the real question they should have asked, “Who would be welcomed into Heaven?” According to God’s word, those who turn from their sins and trust God openly...honestly, and completely. Only then can you be called sincerely His.

GOD BLESS YOU,
There was a woman who had an issue of blood for 12 years. Our bodies are 80% water, and I know that if it drips continuously at some point there will be no water left in our body no matter what we do.
Here is this lady in a weakened state; she heard that Jesus was coming her way on route to another house. She said in her heart, “If only I could touch the hem of Jesus’ garment I would be healed.” Then she thought, how can I get near being so weak, but she said to herself "I must touch Him no matter what." She left her home, traveled a bit, then encountered a crowd along the route. She stumbled, fell and crawled the rest of the way saying to herself, “I must touch Jesus to be healed.” She was kicked and stepped on as she crawled her way to the front line just as Jesus came by. At the last moment she used the last of her energy to reach out and touch the hem of His garment and instantly the issue of blood stopped. She felt stronger. Jesus took a few more steps and stopped and asked a question. “Who touched me?” The disciples said, "In this crowd someone will always bump into You, it cannot be helped. Jesus asked again, “Who touched me?” At last the woman came forward and said to Jesus" I did. For the last twelve years I have had an issue of blood that doctors could not fix, but I knew that if I could touch the hem of Your garment I would be healed. Jesus said to her, “Go in peace, your faith has made you whole.” Amen.
Today won’t you reach out wherever you are and touch the hem of HIS garment. As Jesus passes by touch Him for salvation, for healing, and for restoration.

Today I would like to speak to the parents. You fell in love and got married. You two became one, and then had children.
When was the last time your children saw the two of you praying together? When was the last time you prayed with your children? Do you pray for them everyday? When was the last time your children prayed with you together as a family? We have all heard the saying, "go play in the traffic" and "why did we ever have you?" "You’re stupid and will never amount to anything." Those terms never used to be in Christian households, but nowadays they are turning up too often in Christian families. WHY?
As parents in today’s world, many times both parents are working, trying to make ends meet. We have gotten away from prayer time with family, bible reading, and time together. We must return to what God put us here for. We are to honor Him with our love and adoration; we should be listening for His still small voice.
Set limits with your children, give them what they need not what they want. Show them a better way on your knees praying for direction for you and each of your family.
Picture this if you will. We all know someone with a wayward child. The child comes home 4-5 am three sheets to the wind all doped up. As he/she enters the house, he/she hears a strange sound coming from upstairs. As he/she stumbles up past the door to the parents' bedroom, lights on, Kleenex everywhere, the parents on bended knees praying in the Holy Ghost for that child, bombarding heaven for the soul of that child. Every time that child goes out, the scene is repeated until that child repents and comes back to the Lord. At first this is rejected outwardly, but it will stir the child’s soul.
My parents stayed up all night praying for me every time I partyed. "What can I do Lord, show me the way. Amen." This is the way God wants us to live.
GOD BLESS YOU,
