"Stop And Consider God's Wonders"
Message summary: Today, we encourage you to consider God's wonders. His wonders abound surrounding us night and day. And then hear this important reminder from Elihu; "Remember to extol His work, which men have praised in song" (Job 36:24).

The firefly is a bioluminescent insect, scientifically known as
Pyractomena borealis. It sure is an interesting creature and we marvel
as a family observing this special creation of God.
Daily prayer: Father, we do extol Your work and praise You with our lips, with our voice and with our devotion to follow You all the days of our life. We stop and consider Your great wonders and mighty works as we acknowledge You to be the Creator of all things. Your ways are perfect and beyond human understanding. It is all the more reason why we must rely on Your guidance and not lean on our own understanding. Today we acknowledge You in all our ways and ask You to direct our paths and increase our understanding in the name of Jesus. Amen.
We always enjoy the beauty of the yucca plants that bloom alongside the Hoffman barn every year in June on Colebrook Road.

We are pleased that all the companies we serve as chaplains are very busy. These workers are assembling components for watering systems for poultry. Most of you reading this having eaten an egg or chicken raised in a chicken house that uses these watering systems. Consider offering a prayer of thanks to the Lord for these hard workers who make this equipment as well as to the farmers and all others in the supply chain. Above all of course praise God from whom all blessings flow.

We realize there are many fine ministries and causes requesting support but if the Lord would lead you we surely need and appreciate the financial support from our readers and listeners.
Our ministry labor is comprised of approximately half our time to Daily Encouragement and the other half to our chaplaincy ministry to companies for which we receive compensation. Each of these ministries essentially is the same as a part-time job (20+ hours weekly) for each of us. Our goal for many years is that each would provide half of our ministry expenses and income.
