An Invitation to Rest and Refreshment
by Leif Hetland – (visit leifhetland.com for info about Leif's ministry)

Psalm 23 is one of the most beautiful passages in the Bible. Countless times this Psalm has been read in times of grief and sorrow to bring comfort to the listeners. If you read this Psalm carefully you will discover that it is "A day in the life of a sheep." It is spoken from the point of view of a well cared for and well-loved sheep.

There are countless golden nuggets to be mined from this Psalm. Let's look at two:

5 Continual Benefits of Knowing God is With You
by Eddie Lawrence 
(Thanks to Dave Bronsburg one of my FaceBook friends for supplying the Scripture references.)

What Will I Cry? – sermon

Posted by: | Comments (2)

One of my sermon subscription subscribers requested an outline on Isaiah 40. As I studied it, this is a message of encouragement I begin to see.

WHAT SHALL I CRY?
by Eddie Lawrence

Isaiah 40:3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness:

      “ Prepare the way of the LORD;
      Make straight in the desert[a]
      A highway for our God.
       4 Every valley shall be exalted
      And every mountain and hill brought low;
      The crooked places shall be made straight
      And the rough places smooth;
       5 The glory of the LORD shall be revealed,
      And all flesh shall see it together;
      For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”
       6 The voice said, “Cry out!”
      And he[b] said, “What shall I cry?”

The No Quit Formula
By Eddie Lawrence

A few years ago I heard a missionary by the name of Allen Skelton share a sermon out of Galatians 6:9 which really spoke to my heart. What I really remember him saying that has stuck with me is, "If you don't quit, you won't fail!"

Galatians 6:9 says, "And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart." (NKJV)
