                Memory Verse

                 "Then the Lord asked Moses, "Who makes a person's
                  mouth?  Who decides whether people speak or do
                  not speak, hear or do not hear, see or do not see? 
                  Is it not I, the Lord?."
                  -Exodus 4:11
                Thought For the Week
                The reality is that who we are was predicated by God without our having a say.
