Prayer of Thanksgiving  

Bless the LORD, O my soul,
and do not forget all his benefits

who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the Pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good as long as you live
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

The psalmist’s all-encompassing list is a good example of all the gifts of God we should gratefully acknowledge. Personalize this ancient prayer by pondering your own experiences of God’s forgiveness, healing, redemption, love, mercy and satisfaction of your daily needs.

Living Each Day as a Steward!

The word, stewardship, simply means to manage someone else’s property. For the Christian, as Scripture proclaims everything belongs to God, we manage the property of our Lord. Since everything belongs to Christ, we need to have the attitude and view that our things are His things, our stuff is His stuff, that all we could have now, all we have lost, all we will have, is His, including our very bodies and spiritual gifts. We are mere lessees of the property, money, relationships, talents, time, and even our lives. That means all that we are and all that we have is not ours to begin with. They belong to God. Therefore, the duty of the Christian is to learn how to become responsible stewards of our Lord’s resources entrusted into our care. It means to manage everything to the best of our abilities for His glory.

First Corinthians 4:1-2 says, “Let a man so consider us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is required in stewards that one be found faithful.” Next week everyone will have the opportunity to come, worship Christ, and return your Intention of Giving form and your Time and Talent Survey. I hope that you have been prayerfully considering what it means to be a steward of God’s possessions. Thank you for your service to First Methodist Church of Yazoo City and to God.  

Rich Knox, Stewardship Chairperson 

 

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES  


 

Hurricane Recovery Efforts

Our brothers and sisters in the Alabama/West Florida conference need our help! We know too well how difficult those first few days can be after a natural disaster. The area is still in the search-and-rescue process. It is important for us to pray for those affected by the storm as well as those who have begun the process of helping in the Alabama/West Florida area. One of the most effective means of helping is through our United Methodist Committee on Relief. Cash contributions through our church

to UMCOR will get to those churches and individuals who have suffered damage and loss. Over the next three weeks if you can, please donate to those affected by hurricane Michael. We will accumulate our donations and forward on to UMCOR. We are called to help our friends in need, just like those who helped us in recent years.

Your Missions Committee, Van Ray
