My oldest granddaughter, Sara Beasley, asked me to put her favorite Bible verse in this month. It’s one of the verses Sara memorized while working this summer at K-Kountry, which is one of the Kanakuk Kamps in Missouri. Sara says Jeremiah 29:13 has really helped her not to forget that she has to give God every part of her, without holding anything back from Him. In her own words, Sara wants to be “totally consumed by the Lord, so that He can reveal Himself to me and be in control of every aspect of my life.” Sara will be a junior at Auburn University this Fall. She will be starting her third season as a majorette with the Auburn Marching Band when school starts this month.
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
My good friend Ed Crowell, a Montgomery resident, says he tries his best to live by the Golden Rule. Having known Ed for over 40 years, I can say without hesitation that he has done so. Ed, who attained the rank of Brigadier General in the U.S. Air Force Reserves, was a valuable employee of Blount International for years. He currently serves as vice president for a local manufacturing plant and is very active in community affairs. Let’s take a look at the verse Ed sent in. It’s one that we should all strive to live by.
Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
2 Cor. 5:6-8

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
