We Don't Know, All We Think We Know About God!

Morning Inspiration: My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord.
“And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.
For just as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so my ways are higher than your ways
and my thoughts higher than your thoughts. 
Isaiah 55:8–9
We always want to put God in a box. Our own neat & clean little box, where we can keep Him contained, pretending to know everything about Our Creator. How foolish we are, to act as though we know exactly what Jesus is thinking & planning. Yes, His Holy Word gives us great insight into what is coming & why...but NO man knows when! Not a soul knows exactly how. Likewise, we deceive ourselves by trying to make God fit into our dreams & desires. Our goal should be to conform to what Jesus has planned for us. His ways are immensely greater than ours...& so are His results. We significantly reduce our potential, effectiveness & spiritual growth, when we try to make Jesus like us. Our daily prayer needs to be for Jesus, to make us like Him!

Prayer Request Joshua Link

Urgent prayer request for our brother Josh Link, his wife Mary & their young children. Here is the latest Facebook post from Josh:
So apparently I’m really bad at this social media stuff. It has been over a year since I’ve given everyone an update on my health, so here goes.
As most of you know by now, I’ve been fighting colorectal cancer since August 2016. I made it through all the treatments and surgeries and was considered “cancer free” until February of this year when they found some new lesions on my liver and a possible lymph node. Thus, I began chemo again in March and finished in May. The cancer responded well to the chemo so they determined another liver resection was the best course of action.
I have spent the last couple months recovering from the chemo, getting mistletoe treatments, and doing everything possible to get as strong and healthy as possible for the pending surgery. I will have that surgery tomorrow at 0730 at UNM main and hope to be out within 3-4 days. …

Urgent Prayer Request for Laura Galbraith

I just returned from a hospital visit with Laura Galbraith. Many of you know she has been bravely battling a rare form of cancer for the past several years. Today, due to another development in her health status, Laura decided to discontinue any further treatments. While she still believes God can and will cure her, she is at the stage where her knowledge of this situation has brought her to understand that further medical treatments are useless. While she is sad it has come to this, she is still hopeful, & joyful.  She joked & laughed again & again during our short visit.

Her sister Beth is here & will be able to stay, while plans are made for Laura to move into Home Hospice care. I told Laura how grateful I have been for her openness throughout this long & difficult process. Her Facebook posts have been open & honest, & she has repeatedly expressed her complete & endless faith in Jesus. She has encouraged many others through her personal witness in th…

Our sister Laura Galbraith is now with Jesus.

Our sister Laura Galbraith is now with Jesus. Her sister Beth let us know early this evening that the time was close, & Laura passed into the arms of our Savior about 7:30 tonight. Laura has been an active part of our NCC family for many years. Until she became very ill recently, she faithfully baked delicious loaves of homemade bread each week, to be handed out to every guest on their first visit to New Covenant.

Laura was a rather quiet person in crowds, but was very bold about her faith in Jesus. She was also brave enough to share many of the details of her cancer journey through her Facebook posts over the past several years. Being extremely intelligent, she did a good amount of research & study on her type of cancer. She wrote about her hope for new types of treatment, but ALWAYS stated that she had total trust in Jesus, and would be satisfied with whatever He decided. During our visit in the hospital just a few days ago, she was active & talkative, even a bit embarra…
