TO GOD BE THE GLORY, GREAT THINGS HE HAS DONE!
To God be the glory! What He has done for me, He can do for you.
While we focus on our strengths, God uses our weakness. Think about Moses and Aaron. God provides! Think about the story of Samson. Our strength takes us away from God and towards Delilah who deceives and destroys. Have you ever failed? I certainly have. I’m convinced God knew my heart. God could see me, my life.
When I was kid, I was told, “Kids are to be seen and not heard…You talk too much…you have a short attention span.” I was very creative and could not sit still for very long. I don’t know of anyone who thought I would have a future in anything. It’s been a long journey.
I started with so little. I can’t remember my father. I had an uneducated mom, an Irish scrub lady, who in her late twenties became a Christian. I struggled with wishes and dreams. I misbehaved. I ran around with some dangerous friends. I had been saved at age 11, but at 17, I rebelled against my mother and the Lord. I joined the Navy and saw the world and much of what it was made of. Oh, I had fun at times, but always, always there was something missing.
I rededicated my life to Christ in Dallas in 1950. With my rededication and Joan accepting Christ as her personal Savior, our lives changed. We became active in the church. Learned to pray and study the Bible. How we thank the Lord!
God has a plan and I’m thankful at age 60, after much resistance, I was able to understand and follow Him. I can tell you that since then I have enjoyed my life and thank God for His love, patience and wisdom. To God be the glory! What He has done for me, He can do for you.
Recently, I had the opportunity to talk with two close friends who are Jewish Christians. We talked about how we believe we are in the last days. Their discussion was very impacting to me. I know many pastors believe the same thing. For those of us who believe in Christ – what a peace we have knowing God is in control. That for Him, a day is as a thousand years – He holds the future in His hands. We can rejoice knowing that every promise the Bible tells us will come to pass.
Thank you for all you do! I’m so grateful to have you as a part of the Premier Family! We will remember where we came from and who we are! We will remember our Purpose and Philosophy and how God has blessed us. We will remember my honey, Joan, and her personal touch and the major role she played in building Premier into a personal business. We will remember to God be all the glory, great things He has done!
Romans 11:36 “For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever. Amen.”
We care a lot,
