Update from Eric Elder: Today’s “Thoughts” follow this brief update, but I wanted to let you know we’ve received $5,145.30 so far from 67 of our wonderful subscribers…
As you can see from this chart, the donations have ranged from $5 to $1,000, and each one is significant in helping us to reach our goal.
Would you consider joining these others in our efforts to send these daily words of encouragement to over 40,000 people over 160 countries? Our goal is to raise $60,000 by the end of the year, and every donation gets us that much closer!
Thanks so much for your help and for your notes of encouragement like these:
“Your ministry has blessed me for many years and I’m in a better place because of it.”
“With love and gratitude for your ministry which has been of great support and joy to me in what has been a very difficult year.”
“Thanks again for the inspiration of this week’s sermon and daily thoughts. They are always a source of encouragement, a blessing, and a reminder of God’s love and interest in our lives. May God continue to bless your ministry.”

The storm was raging. The sea was beating against the rocks in huge, dashing waves. The lightning was flashing, the thunder was roaring, the wind was blowing; but the little bird was sound asleep in the crevice of the rock, its head tucked serenely under its wing. That is peace: to be able to sleep in the storm! In Christ we are relaxed and at peace in the midst of the confusions, bewilderments and perplexities of this life. The storm rages, but our hearts are at rest. We have found peace—at last!
Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law, or by hearing with faith?
