Encouragement from Roz
As We Wait … Heart-to-Heart
Pantry Prose, “We the People,” and Personalized Scripture …
Presently, in my pantry, there is a board made with cork, chicken wire, and glass knobs affixed to the wall. From time to time I have to stop and read it [which I can do way more easily now since Rodger Sloan installed a light in my previously dark cubby of a pantry! Thanks Rodger!] As I was meditating on each item affixed to the board via push pin or tiny clothespin … I realized how valuable each piece is to my life just now. I want to share them with you for your encouragement.
since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses,
let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles.
And let us run with perseverance
the race marked out for us.”

You need to feel the stress of the storm.”
1 John 3:19-20
This is how I know I belong to the Truth and
how I set my heart at rest in Your Presence …
whenever my heart condemns me.
For God, You are greater than my heart and
You know everything about me …
You know everything about everything!
