Weekly Truth

Open Your Bible

1 Corinthians 1:8-9

Scripture is God-breathed and true. When we memorize it, we carry the good news of Jesus with us wherever we go. 

For the first half of this plan, we are memorizing 1 Corinthians 1:8–9. This week we will memorize verse 9, the declaration of our identity in Christ because of God’s faithfulness. 

 He will also strengthen you to the end, so that you will be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful; you were called by him into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
—1 Corinthians 1:8–9

    Thinking of the blessing and gift of adoption and foster care a lot lately. I went to see Sound of Hope, such a beautiful movie about a small church in a small town in TX adopting every hard to place foster care child in their county in the ‘90s. They didn’t sugarcoat how hard it was raising these kids. I also listened to Amanda Bible Williams experience with their special needs adopted son on The Unfolding podcast this weekend, such a sweet story! My daughter is adopted from China too at 10 mos – she is 21 now. Have a blessed Sunday everyone!

    1. Rhonda J. says:

      Thank you for sharing, I definitely want to see the movie and listen to the weekly SRT Podcast!!
      How wonderful for you to adopt from China!! I would probably take in every baby if I could.

  4. Mari V says:

    GOD is faithful! Even when we’re not, HE is! So thankful he doesn’t give up on us, me. Prayers are appreciated as my daughter was having a meltdown last night, and according to her, I just didn’t have the right words. So I tried listening. I really did! It was a very sensitive issue, so I would appreciate discernment and that she will reach for guidance to help her.

    1. Rhonda J. says:

      You got those prayers for her! Hugs! At least she is talking to you though! I have only a boy, and they never share anything or feelings! (mine at least!)

  5. Kimberly Z says:

    @Audren Phalen – praying for you to have a better week and feel like you think a little more clearly. I too get “scroll paralysis” so I understand your feelings. Praying for you all this week to have a wonderful week.

  6. Mia Faith says:

    Ladies, I asked for specific prayer about getting the death certificate “that week,” about two weeks ago. Well… it came on that Friday afternoon. What a praise!! It took some nudging from a state representative, but it is finally here. I came down faith a stomach bug the next day and was sick the rest of the week (hence, my delay in sharing). But… I don’t want to be like the losers who didn’t go back to give thanks! A HUGE THANK YOU for your support and prayers!! This is one of those things you don’t want but desperately need. It is bittersweet like most everything else these days. But I am so thankful to have it!

    1. Mari V says:

      Good morning Mia Faith. Praising God with you, along with heartfelt prayers! We, your SRT sisters, love you, sweet lady

    2. Rhonda J. says:

      Praise! But yes, it must be bittersweet! Continued prayers for you and your family!

      Hugs!

    3. Tina says:

      MIA FAITH. Praising God with you in these victories, whether they be small or large, He is near, close and ever present.. continued prayers for you and yours dear sister..❤️

    4. Michelle P says:

    “He will also strengthen you to the end…”. I am thankful for this today. Happy Sunday.

  8. Cheryl Blow says:

    So thankful that I have been called onto fellowship with God and Jesus!

  9. GramsieSue says:

    “Called into fellowship with His Son”. Oh how I love that and I’m so thankful.
    I was having a rough time the other night. Steve has been really depressed this week. I can deal with his physical disabilities…It’s easy to see what he needs and help. But the mental breakdowns…Sheesh! There’s not much to say to help him.
    After Steve went to bed,I went out onto the deck and sent out an SOS to our adult kiddos and then just sat praying. Began reading my journal and oh my! All I had to do was read about how God has been with us through all the difficult journey. He knows when I sit and when I rise. He hems me in behind and before and lays His hand upon me.
    “I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.”
    All these verses were there and this quote:
    “God is every moment totally aware of each one of us. Totally aware in intense concentration and love…
    No one passes through any area of life, happy or tragic, without the attention of God with them.” -Eugenia Price

    And then the sunset!! God’s artistry filled the sky!

    So I may not know the words to give Steve when he struggles with this curveball that life has thrown him,
    But God…
    Oh but God!

    Blessed Sunday to you all ❤️

      So much love and prayers sent your way.

    3. Lynne from Alabama says:

      GramsieSue—I completely understand how you feel! Just when I think I can’t do this anymore God sends me someone or something to encourage and to let me know He’s got me! He is so so good! He’s got you too, dear sister! ❤️

    4. Mari V says:

      GramsieSue❤️ Just now, YOU ministered to me with what you read is from your journal! First, I’m sorry you’re going through this and as you can see you’re covered in prayer, sweet lady. But God…. HE used you just now, I needed to hear those words that were in your journal. Sending you a huge

      1. Rhonda J. says:

        Yes, me too! Your words are poignant and beautiful. My heart hurts for those relationships that are so hard, let alone with issues like this. Praying for you, and sending big hugs, and for Lynn as well, and other caregivers for their husbands.

    5. AZ Walker says:

      Praying for continued strength for you GrammieSue and a sound mind for Steve dealing with so much.

    6. Donna Wolcott says:

      GramieSue, lifting you both up. God gave Steve a very special person to share life with – the good and the difficult.❤️

    7. Tina says:

  11. Lynne from Alabama says:

    Good morning, sweet SRT sisters! I need a little extra prayers this morning. I’m pretty bummed. I have someone who has offered to stay with Jack one Sunday a month so I can go to church. Today is that day but I’m not going to be able to go. Jack fell off the side of the bed this morning about 3:15 trying to reach his bottle of water that he had dropped. I was already up telling him to let me get it but he didn’t wait. Praise the Lord he seems to be okay but I didn’t want to leave him. Thank you for praying!

    1. GramsieSue says:

      Oh Lynne, I’m sorry you can’t go to church.
      I completely understand not wanting to leave him after that. This is so hard.
      Prayers for you today to have peace and strength.
      Hugs ❤️

    2. Adrienne says:

      ❤️❤️

    3. Mari V says:

      We love you Lynne from Alabama ❤️. If weather permits, and if you like the outdoors, maybe you can sit outside, and read something that encourages you.

    4. AZ Walker says:

      Praying for you Lynne for peace about this disappointment. Praying that going back to church next time and as much as you can will strengthen you.

    5. Rhonda J. says:

      Praying nothing was hurt or impacted in that fall, and prayers for Jesus to fill you up in other ways today.
      Praying the person can give you another chance next week to get to church. It would be hard to leave, yet I know you would love to go.
      Praying for strength for you in this challenging, hard, hard time.

    6. Tina says:

      Praying dearest Lynne. Praying you feel the Lords presence and that He would lift you up and bring church to you via His Spirit.
      Praying also, whilst giving thanks, for Jack, that all is well with him.. Much love winging it’s way across the pond to yourself and Jack covered in much prayer for you to make it to church in days to come. ❤️

    7. Michelle P says:

      Praying for you, Lynne ❤️

    8. Cee Gee says:

      So sorry for Jack’s fall and what it cost you, sister! Thankful it wasn’t worse! I hope God sent you a special blessing today! Hugs and prayers❤

    Amen! ♥️♥️

  16. Cee Gee says:

    Yes, KELLY NEO, that is what resonated with me as I let that phrase sink in. Amen to your perfectly voiced comment! ❤

  17. Kelly (NEO) says:

    Oh, the wonder that I am “called by him into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord”!
    .
    I mean what grace, mercy, and lovingkindness that the God of all creation calls, seeks, even wants to be in relationship with this broken, sinner.
    .
    May my worship today truly reflect the magnitude of this awesome reality.
