As we go through a season of refinement and being made ready, it is as the hot summer season in which we crave refreshing rains, and we look forward to the cool of the fall. You have surely made me ready to be employed as your anointed vessel. Some seasons are more concentrated in the fires of refinement than others. When we finally submit and release our hearts to God, level by level, He takes us higher in Him.
When we set our thoughts and actions upon Him and do not look to the right, left, or behind, we at last begin to behold His richness, beauty, and all that He offers us in the land of the living — and it is a lot! Richness applies abundance, means, ability to live and move and do what is needed without restraint — this is just what Chris offers us. When we walk with Him and let the Holy Spirit really, truly, and completely occupy our hearts and the seat of our desires we operate with all the richness Heaven has to offer. What a delight we will be not only to others around us, to Him, but to ourselves.
He can change our path, circumstances, and make our lives new, but most importantly, He can change us into His image.

Nothing is too hard for him, not even our own walk of faith or our own stubbornness and willfulness. He can even change our hearts to desire what He desires — this may seem unimaginable as we wrestle in the dirt to hold onto that which we think will satisfy our longings. How much more fulfilling is what God has put in My heart to desire. God can restore and multiply all we offer to Him to feed thousands.

Pray that young people under the influence of gang culture will be inspired to live for Jesus and bring change to their communities. Aussie Mums for Indo Kids At the end of last year Australian mums got together to reach out to poor communities. Danielle Welch reports on a creative fundraising initiative that brought Christmas — and the Bible's life words — to hundreds of street children in Indonesia.
Danielle Welch. Many experience poverty, and great need for daily provisions and for the Word of God.
Seven mums led the way in making others aware of the campaign and encouraging them to get involved. The gifts were coupled with opportunities to share the message of Jesus, and families received Bible booklets in Bahasa, telling the gospel story. I find people are more generous in giving when they either feel ownership of something or know people involved directly so they can see where their money goes … it's so important to make people aware of this work and give them an opportunity to make a place in their heart for it too.
Praise God for the "Aussie Mums for Indo Kids" initiative and for the enthusiasm of Australian supporters to get involved. Give thanks for the money raised and how it enabled hundreds of Indonesian children to enjoy a special Christmas celebration. Please pray for SGM Lifewords in Australia and for its supporters, that they would find more and more creative ways to build relationships and reach people with God's hope and love.

The themes the booklet talks about were all taken from interviews and research with refugees, responding especially to fears — of rejection, for those left behind; fears for the future, as well as fear about remembering or reliving the past. Readers encounter stories of Jesus, ending with the prayer that Jesus taught. If you are working with refugees and asylum seekers, get in touch and find out what language resources we have.

The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance. I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I keep my eyes always on the Lord.
With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure, because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead, nor will you let your faithful one see decay. You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
5 Bible Verses To Read If You're Seeking God's Direction
Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.
