Prevenient Grace – How Sweet the Prerecorded Blessings


My Facebook page memory photos reminded me of visiting, few years ago, with a group of church ladies who formed a Forward Look class long long time ago, some vintage aged then, some now 90ish, were movers and shakers in the church for years and years and their work paid for important things like roof repairs and refrigerators, dishes for funeral luncheons, and (for my benefit preveniently) a CD burner system for recording church services and concerts. These Forward Look ladies studied the Bible and shared the scriptures and prayed the people into blessings. The CDs could be shared with the homebound. I found that they found me – I was able to get sermons I had missed while busy with sunday school – get the crucial older sermons from a now friend when my ears started to open up (by God’s actions) and when my appetite for Him went thru the roof, 8 years ago now. I was able to gather some guidance – PREVIENIENTLY PLACED – at my fingertips… I still have my cds – music, sermons, SPIRIT… subsequently I copied these for others too… even put them up on Facebook, YouTube, etc… SHARE THE SPIRIT…

Amazing Previenient Grace. How sweet the prerecorded sound…

I also have another connection, I think in a tiny way I helped those many years prior to purchase it, in just a small way, with discussions with the ones who worked with them. I remember email chains, and well, I held some of the electronics magazines in my hands in that time period.  Cool… Previenient. AND EVEN MAYBE simply purchasing cookies at their rummage sales helped – yeah cookies!

People often tell me: “well, I don’t need to get into a church building – I’m fine worshipping out in nature or in my own readings”… well, how can you Previeniently help others (or yourself) if you don’t go to where the people are? How can you get AND GIVE congregational benefits at home? Even homebound recieved visitors with the CDs and made the visitors feel fulfilled and needed… (and how can you eat church cookies if you don’t go?!!!) If you don’t like one set of cookies, try another, try some pie, there’s got to be a slice for you somewhere. 

Well, I know these Forward Look ladies, through cookies, pies, sandwiches, rummage sales etc, used vintage things and recipes for gathering new money for new things, like that CD burner and oh yeah the roof. What’s more vintage old than PREVIENIENT GRACE? NOTHING. God put Himself into our lives on purpose. He came first. PREVIENIENT Grace is God getting us golden even before He starts polishing us.

GOD BLESSES. Pick up His Help.

Thanks ladies of Forward Look. 

Amen, thank you Lord and Amen

One of my favorites: Psalm 127

A song of ascents. Of Solomon.
Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain. In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat — for he grants sleep to those he loves.

Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.
