"Trey Tuesday" - June 28, 2016

You are Loved

Recently I received an email with the following salutation:  You are loved.
Wow!  What an impactful statement!  It wasn't the traditional, "I love you" wording.  The focus wasn't on the sender, but on the receiver!  I felt really blessed by those simple words.

God sends a love letter to us every day through His Word, prayer, His people, and life's circumstances: You. Are. Loved!  You, yes, YOU!  :)

Today, that message of love came through Jay's website post, appropriately named, "Live to Love." Read Jay's powerful words here:

I love how God brought the simple, yet very strong, message of love to both of our hearts and minds to share with you this, "Trey Tuesday!"  :)

"As for us, we can't help but thank God for you, dear brothers and sisters loved by the Lord."
2 Thessalonians 2:13

"Trey Tuesday" - June 21, 2016

Panic Mode!

We all know it well....that moment when there are no words, no thoughts, just panic.
It could be from a lost cell phone, a bounced check or a word spoken at the wrong place or time.  Or it could be from something much bigger....a diagnosis, a fractured relationship, or a life changing decision.

What do you say in panic mode?
A four letter word?
The silent treatment?
A scream?

Today's prayer lesson is short and sweet.  Call on the Lord.  Softly or loudly.  He hears you.
He loves you.  He will set you free.

"In my distress I called to the LORD; I called out to my God. He heard my voice; my cry came to His ears."  Psalm 18:6

"Out of my distress I called on the LORD; the LORD answered me and set me free."  Psalm 118:5

"Trey Tuesday" - June 14, 2016

Opposite Day

How has your world seemed lately?
Right side up?  Or up side down? 
We live in a sad and confusing world, where the pain and confusion may never seem to stop.

Where is common sense?
And right and wrong?
And good and bad?
How do we know how to discern these things?

Where is God in this world when it seems like Opposite Day every day?
He is here.
He is near.
He is nearer than we can ever imagine!  :)
He wants to be even more near to you....

Find God's answers in His Word.
In a noisy world, listen for His quiet voice:
"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."  John 14:27

Summer Vacation!

How sweet are those words to students (and teachers!) everywhere!?!

And for our dear Bella the sweetness just kept coming.  Her antibiotics kicked in quickly last week and she started to feel better just in time to return to school for the end of year festivities!
Thank you for praying for Bella and her family!

And now, Team Mitlo One, let's pray for each other.  As you read this, please pray for the rest of Trey's fan club to find God's joy and celebrate today, just because!  :)  Just like Trey would!  Go ahead - jump up and down like it's the last day of school!  :)

"Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.”
The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy."  Psalm 126:2,3
