Today is praise Thursday and first Jonathon shared a devotional from “Our Daily Bread” called “Legacy of Friends.” He shared about how friendships that are connected by love of God encourages us and brings us closer to Jesus. That true friends will give us truths that might be hard to hear. They are there in true crisis. In life we need friends and we need to be a friend. That we need to be a friend that draws others to Jesus.

Emma then shared Day 1 from a devotional by Brandon Lake called “Help!” She read about the story of Joseph and his tribulations that the enemy tried to “demote” him and God was able to use it to “promote him into his purpose.” That whatever trials you are going through, God can use it as your testimony! That He can take anything the enemy throws and can turn it for good and “promoting you into purpose.”

Today at midnight is the last day to nominate your pastor for Clergy Appreciation Month! Tomorrow during The Morning Thing we will honor 5 local pastors and they will receive a $20.00 gift certificate to La Paloma Mexican Restaurant and a $10.00 gift certificate to the Gospel Christian Life shop in downtown Mount Vernon. We will also draw three pastors for our Grand Prize of an overnight stay in a standard room at the Mount Vernon Grand Hotel. So nominate your pastor today!

Game time as we played Name that Tune! Congrats to Tra from Mount Vernon who guessed the correct answer of “”God Only Knows” by for King & Country. He wins a CD of Natalie Grant’s album “Who Else.” Stay tuned next week as we will have CDs from Dove Award Nominated artists.

Thank you for listening!

Emma and Jonathon
