He executes justice for the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, he lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves those who live justly. The LORD watches over the immigrant and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. -Psalm 146:7-9

What a Delight To Serve

"When we work as unto the Lord we serve others even more excellently than if serving them were our main goal. Working as unto the Lord does not mean serving God instead of other people.............

Whatever you do, work heartily as for the Lord and not for men…. You are serving the Lord Christ.-- Colossians 3:23-24

But we’re not doing it for them. We do it for the Lord.
We serve God by serving others. We love him by loving others.
We are not standing in the middle of two masters with each calling our name. We do not have to turn our backs on one to follow the other.
No, God stands on the far side of the other people in our lives. We can only reach out to him if we reach out to them. We live for them to live for him.
They’ll receive blessing and we’ll receive Jesus." - John Piper

Here are just some fun pics of our time with the girls in our neighborhood..some are bible study pics and some were taken today on our trip to B'ham! The girls had a blast being introduced to something outside of the hood! The LORD ultimately provided and gave the idea for this trip, and we are thankful!
