Hughes Memorial Weekly Update -Tuesday, July 16

Memory Verse

"But the Lord answered her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by many things; there is need of only one thing.  Mary has chosen the better part, which will not be taken away from her."    
 -Luke  10:41-42  

Thought For the Week
"Essentialism is not about how to get more things done; it's about how to get the right things done.  It doesn't mean just doing less for the sake of less either.  It is about making the wisest possible investment of your time and energy in order to operate at our highest point of contribution by doing only what is essential".  Greg McKeown

Weekly prayer for the Homeless 

Psalm 35:10 
With every bone in my body I will praise Him. Lord, who can compare with you?  Who else rescues the helpless from the strong?  Who else protects the helpless and the poor from those who rob them. 

PRAYER: O God of infinite power we thank you for the protection you give us, especially at those times and in those places, we are not aware of the dangers in our surroundings.  We trust in you Lord because we know that in mystery and in silence you are present in our lives, walking beside us, and carrying us through treacherous challenges.  We know that you will rescue us on time.  We pray for patience and for the perseverance to withstand the turbulence created when we lack the understanding of your call to serve.   Keep us steady and pressing on when we get tired and want to give up and give in.  We know only you can keep us free from the dangers on this path to glory, so we look to you with praise and thanksgiving.   Amen.
