“Hear, O My people, and I will speak, O Israel, and I will testify against you; I am God, your God! (Psalm 50:7)
LORD, please help us to hear your testimony against us and repent.
I will not rebuke you for your sacrifices or your burnt offerings, which are continually before me. (Psalm 50:8 )
Jesus, help us offer ourselves to you each day.
I will not take a bull from your house, nor goats out of your folds. (Psalm 50:9)
Father, there is nothing we can give you except what you have already given to us. Help us to give generously of your own.
For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills. (Psalm 50:10)
LORD, it’s stime to sell off some of your cattle and provide for the poor in the land.
I know all the birds of the mountains, and the wild beasts of the field are mine. “If I were hungry, I would not tell you; for the world is mine, and all its fullness. (Psalm 50:11-12)
Father, everything belongs to you. We are made in your own image — help us daily give ourselves to you.

Subject: Rwanda Team Latest, Posted by Miriam on Facebook earlier
Storm brewing again in Rwanda and it’s not me! Calm of a sort reigns in my wee spot in spite of the dreaded packing – mind, not as bad as packing to come here. Some more visits today – tough – and some tough decisions to make tonight as to how to help. Gloria lives in what is a building site – ironically in what there is of a part built house for someone a lot wealthier than she is. She is a Rwan…dan genocide survivor with some of the worst visible scars of that I’ve ever seen. She has 2 children, no real means of making a living and yet she comes to the church with a bunch of other women to clean as a service to God. We gave the Sewing Center women and the salon girls their lunch and enjoyed their all singing all dancing thank you! Another day of mixed emotions but another day of God mightily at work. Can’t wait to get home now – though sad to leave – to share the works of our great big God! Tomorrow is tying up of loose ends, shopping, de-briefing, packing and flying out. Pray for no storms around 8.20 pm our time! Much as I don’t like to leave I don’t want to get stranded by storm. Thank you!
