Jeremiah 14:20 (“Saved to Life”)

27 Jul Jeremiah 14:20 (“Saved to Life”)

Welcome God today with this LIFE Group Devotion (archive, Facebook).

We recognize, O LORD, our wickedness,the guilt of our fathers; that we have sinned against you. Jeremiah 14:20 (full readings)

Pat nuggets:
* Regarding today’s verse, how about the wickedness of allowing legal access to murdering children (abortion) right in the middle of our neighborhoods (Planned Parenthood)? Lord have mercy.
* I found today’s “Saved to Life” image in a Pictures of the Year International slide show with this caption. “Six-week Michele Olofsson weighed 2 pounds at birth…and she survived.”
* In addition to birthdays, Chad Livingston suggested celebrating “conception day” to remember that life begins at conception!
* Kimberly Martinez (Alpha Center director) shared: “We are SOOOOO very thankful for all of you [LIFE Runners]! Just the other day we had a girl in who is 33 weeks pregnant with twins. She had an abortion scheduled, came to the Alpha Center through recommendation of a friend, received an ultrasound, and chose life! These babies are the ones you run for! When it gets hard to run or Sue, when it gets hard to raise funds, think of these little babies and their precious moms. Be encouraged knowing that your hard work makes a difference that leaves legacies far beyond that which you can imagine. Be blessed and know we are praying for you!” See Faith Challenge below.
* We saw the silly cartoon movie “Despicable Me.” Angi pointed out that this is a story about a metanoia (change of heart)! Paige said it was better than Toy Story 3.
* Here is a great feel good song…enjoy! Hold Us Together.

Faith Challenge: Thirteen of our LIFE Runners will race the Sioux Falls Half/Full Marathon (12 Sep)…for ProLife ministry and to support the Sioux Falls Alpha Center crisis pregnancy bus. The bus reaches those who need free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and the Good News…saves lives! Last year, we raised $2100 for an ultrasound at a FL center. So far, we have only 6 sponsors ($387 total), which includes the donation from Angi/me. If we all donate a little, we will have a big impact. Please let me know if you donate because I would like to add your name (not $) to our sponsors list for thanksgiving prayers. To sponsor the LIFE Runners, go to Alpha Center, and click on “donate.” When you get to PayPal “review your donation” screen, click on “comments” and write “LIFE Runners.” Marathons for ProLife FB page and Blogsite. Thank you for considering!

Our Prayers: Prayer to end abortion. Peters family (JP, special intention).
* Pat Castle (Kimberly Martinez recovering from car accident), Liz Curry (Darleen Deans stroke recovery), Joe Levisky (thanksgiving for birth of granddaughter), Lynn Bishara (Aunt Marilyn with rare leukemia & kidney failure)

Faith Quote: “When it’s all said and done, no one remembers how far we have run. The only thing that matters is how we have loved.” Blink by Revive

Peace & JOY be with you!,
Phil 4:13
