Courtney Carson, the Associate Executive Director of Magic Moments, sent us two verses for this issue. Courtney says God does not have to come and tell her what she must do for Him. Instead, God brings her into a relationship with Him where she hears His call and understands what He wants her to do. Courtney says she does it out of sheer love to God. She quotes from Oswald Chambers:
When people say they have had a call to foreign service, or to any particular sphere of work, they mean that their relationship to God has enabled them to realize what they can do for God.
In her role with Magic Moments, Courtney says she is able to serve children and families who are struggling with serious illness. Courtney had this to say about her work:
I felt God calling me to this line of work, and I am grateful for the opportunity to serve Him. When I get caught up in the problems around me or stress of work, I remind myself who I am working for. I am serving the Lord through the work He has blessed me to be a part of.
These are her two verses:
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Whatever you do, work at it with your whole being, for the Lord and not for men, because you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as your reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. Colossians 3:17, 23-24
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10
Laurie Forks, who works in our Accounting Department as an Accounting Clerk, furnished two verses for this issue. She says these verses have given her great comfort.
Be still and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:2-3
Anthony Brock, the Principal at Valiant Cross Academy for Boys in Montgomery, furnished a timely verse for this issue. He says Proverbs 3: 5-6 resonated with him throughout his life and has done so even more so in recent years. Anthony says that God is in control and that He is always faithful and that is absolutely the Gospel truth.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3: 5-6
