"The Seven Fights I Will Win in These Challenging Times" Spark from Jackie Waalen

I hope all is well with the First Lutheran Family and sending comforting thoughts to all. I provide a devotion to my staff everyday for uplifting strength- here is one we had recently:

The Seven Fights I Will Win in These Challenging Times:

I will fight to WORSHIP, 
instead of WORRY.

I will fight to FUEL FAITH, 
instead of FREAK OUT.

I will fight to ENCOURAGE, 
instead of ESCALATE within the stress.

I will fight to COME to JESUS, 
instead of CONDEMN what He’s allowing in our world.

I will fight to be ACTIVE, 
instead of APATHETIC.

I will fight to OVERFLOW, 
instead of being OVERWHELMED.

I will fight to MEDITATE on God’s WORD 
instead of MINIMIZE its POWER.

I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in Him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13)

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.  You anoint my head with oil, my cup overflows.  From the end of the earth, I will cry unto Thee, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the Rock that is higher than I. (Psalm 61:2)

Sending love and peace during this time—God is with us always!

Stay Well!

  1. Thank you Jackie for your inspiring message. I love the poem.

  2. It basically provides tons of or thousands of 2D prints on high of each other} to make a three-dimensional object. In brief, 3D printers use CAD to create 3D objects from a variety of|quite so much of|a wide range of} supplies, like molten plastic or powders. 3D printers can are available in} a variety of|quite so much of|a wide range of} shapes and sizes starting from gear that may match on a desk to massive construction models used within the making of 3D-printed homes. There are three main forms of 3D printers CNC machining and each makes use of a barely totally different technique. 3D printing makes use of computer-aided design to create three-dimensional objects by way of a layering technique. Sometimes referred to as additive manufacturing, 3D printing involves layering supplies, like plastics, composites or bio-materials to create objects that vary in shape, dimension, rigidity and shade.
