Stick with Jesus- you can't lose!

Hi folks!  The Quigleys all got " Bibled" up tonight!  Charlotte and Devon first went to a Bible Study group from New Hope, and then joined Brenda Melucci at healing service!  I don't know officially what it is called, as Angie has been to healing masses down here in West Palm!   All I know is that a Priest, or a Minister or a Pastor will have his hands on Devon, praying for his healing, and there is no down side to this!  Wouldn't it be a miracle if God heard these specific prayers tonight and revealed Himself in some outward manner?  I did have a dream this morning that I lit up one of Jimmy Colucci's stogies, and I asked Devo if he wanted one, and he answered "heck, yeah!"  Maybe Jesus will show favor with a few choice words from the D-Man!  But even if He doesn't choose to allow him to speak tonight, we all know that it's just a matter of time, (God's time), before he does!  It will just encourage us more to pray harder, pray more often, and pray with greater expectations that they will be answered!  Devo couldn't be in any better hands than the two that he's in!  And as if Jesus needs any help, the loving hands of his mother aren't too bad either!  Yep, Devon is in good hands, both here on earth, and in the supernatural!  If Jesus is for you, how could anyone be against you?

Angie, Chris Lovely, Bonnie, Patti and Bobby Benson all went to Christ Fellowship tonight to hear Pastor Shaun preach to the young adults and preach, he did!  His message spoke to us all about our decision to either stay faithful and patient with Jesus, or figure that we didn't necessarily need Him and go it alone!  We always have an internal battle going on between our flesh and our faith!  And as Shaun put it so perfectly, the one that wins the battle is the one we feed the most!  If we feed the desires of the flesh more than we feed the desires of our faith, then naturally the flesh (world) will win the battle, and we all know how that will work out!  Saul was made the first King of the Israelites, by God through Samuel, and never really thought that he was worthy.  But after thirty years, he, then decided that he didn't need to wait on the Lord anymore, and went on his own!  Big mistake!  He fell out of favor with God, and soon was replaced!  He forgot about who got him there!  We do that a lot in our lives!  We accept Jesus into our lives, experience great joy and peace, and then because we know that we have salvation, we kind of put Him aside, and chase the worldly desires!  We forgot how we got to where we were!  Remember, the battle between the flesh and your faith will go on as long you feed them both!  And they cannot coexist!  Jesus is a jealous God!  He wants your all!  He wants you to remember who loved you first, and who will love you unconditionally and eternally!  And when you do, THERE ARE NO LIMITS!  Goodnight and GOD bless you all!

2 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. 3 All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh[a] and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. 4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.  (Ephesians 2:1-9)

You nailed it, Dana! That's exactly how we interpreted what Pastor Shaun brought to CF Young Adults. We are so blessed to attend and hear the Word that Shaun so eloquently preaches, thanks again to the Quigley's.
And though I am no fan of stogies, we hope your dream comes true! We just have to wait for God's moment.

Good to see you and Angie tonight!
Love to all,
Patti & Bobby
