A little that a righteous man has Is better than the riches of many wicked, For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, But the LORD upholds the righteous… ……… ……..Psalm 37:16-17 A dreadful thing is the love of money! It disables both eyes and ears, and makes men worse to deal with than a wild beast, allowing a man to consider neither conscience nor friendship nor fellowship nor salvation… ……… ..John Chrysostom Dear Heavenly Father, Thank You, Dear Lord, for graciously supplying us with all our needs. Now, Dear Lord, I pray that I give as generously as You have given to me. Let me give all that I have no matter how small or insignificant it may seem to the world. For it is better to give all that You have with a generous heart, than to give selfishly expecting something in return. I don\’t have much, Lord, according the the worldly values, but I am rich beyond comprehension for I have my faith in You. I need not earthly riches, for I have the promise of eternal wealth in the kingdom of heaven. Yes, Lord, I do need money for food, clothing, a home, and all the necessities of life. And You have blessed me with such needs and desires. For that I am truly grateful. You have always provided for me even when I couldn\’t see the end in sight. Please forgive me for the times that I have taken all that I have for granted. In Jesus most precious name, I pray. Amen.

2001
\”Higher Education Act\” Denies Student Aid Injustice 101: Government \”Higher Education Act\” Denies Financial Aid to Students with Drug Convictions. Taking away financial aid for students with drug convictions is unfair, but that\’s the goal of a recent federal law. Since July 1, 2000, the Department of Education has denied financial aid to thousands of students who reported having been convicted of one or more drug-related offenses. This new, mandatory bar to financial aid — including loans and work-study programs — was enacted in 1998 as part of a series of amendments to the Higher Education Act (HEA). The American Civil Liberties Union believes this law is wrong. Drug violations already carry severe legal penalties, with mandatory minimum sentences. Judges have long had the option of suspending eligibility for aid on a case-by-case basis, but suspension of aid is now mandatory and applies across the board. \”This law is discriminatory, \” said Graham Boyd, director of the ACLU\’s Drug Policy Litigation Project, which is asking students to contact them if they have been denied aid under the new law. \”If a student is convicted of a drug offense, and her family can afford to pay for college, she will be unaffected by the legislation, while those who are already in danger of being pushed to society\’s margins will not be able to get federal aid to improve themselves.\”

Dearly Beloved,

\’TIS SO SWEET TO TRUST IN JESUS!

\”My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, so far from the words of my groaning? O my God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer, by night, and am not silent. Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One; you are the praise of Israel. In you our fathers put their trust; they trusted and you delivered them. They cried to you and were saved; in you they trusted and were not disappointed\” (Psalm 22:1-5, NIV).

The story of Louisa M. R. Stead (1850���1917) touched my heart the day I read it. She was relaxing with her husband and their four-year-old daughter on beach when they heard a desperate boy���s cry. The boy was drowning, and Louisa���s husband tried to rescue him. In the process, however, the boy pulled Mr. Stead under the water, and both drowned as Louisa and her daughter watched. Louisa Stead was left with no means of support except the Lord. She and her daughter experienced dire poverty.
One morning, when she had neither funds nor food for the day, she opened the front door and found that someone had left food and money on her doorstep. That day she wrote the hymn, \”TIS SO SWEET TO TRUST IN JESUS.\”

Many people, including me, have trusted Jesus Christ in the time of needs, and He has proved Himself by miraculously meeting the needs. He never disappoints those who genuinely trust in Him. In spite of his predicament, the psalmist in Psalm 22 recounted how God has saved those that trusted in Him. No wonder, Louisa Stead could write, \”Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him; how I���ve proved Him o���er and o���er! Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus! O for grace to trust Him more.\”

Total trust in Jesus Christ will lead to the Lord���s unfailing love (Psalm 32:10), perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3), blessings (Isaiah 57:13), happiness (Proverbs 16:20), joy in the Lord (Psalm 5:11; 33:21), fulfilment of godly desires (Psalm 37:5), deliverance from enemies (Psalm 37:40), safety in times of danger (Proverbs 30:25), stability (Psalm 125:1), prosperity (Proverbs 28:25), etc.

What is your own predicament? Does it seem that God has forsaken you? Have you put your total trust in Jesus Christ? He will meet you at the point of your need. Trust Him! You also will sing like Louisa Stead, \”TIS SO SWEET TO TRUST IN JESUS.\”

In His service,

Bayo Afolaranmi (Pastor).

I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will
have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted
in my body, whether by life or by death. FOR TO ME, TO LIVE IS CHRIST
AND TO DIE IS GAIN (Philippians 1:20-21, NIV).
