88 Lone Elm Freewill Baptist Church-Pastor Mike Ward

[06/14/20]   Happy Sunday to everyone. We hope you are all well.
We will be having Old Folks Day June 28th at 10:00 AM. Given the circumstance of Covid-19, and cases continuing to rise, we ask that everyone please respect others by social distancing and wearing of masks when needed. The tentative plan is to have the service outside with the possibility of moving indoors. We will not be having a potluck or afternoon service, but you are more than welcome to bring a sack lunch. We will have ice chests with plenty of water. We look forward to seeing everyone. Continue lifting each other up, being a blessing to others and stay well.
"When i remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday. Psalm 42:4💕

God’s Ways Are Higher – Much Higher
1. The unexpected. Sometimes things don’t turn out quite the way we figured they would. “Yes,” we might add, “they turn out worse.” There is a modern proverb that has been identified with a man named Murphy: “If it can go wrong, it will go wrong.” But life is not always like that. Describe some a personal event that turned out much better than we could have hoped for, something that might have appeared to be a disaster but turned out for the good:
2. Read Romans 8:28,36-39. Does God have in mind to injure and destroy His children?

3. Does He have good intentions for them and the outcome of events concerning them?

Read II Corinthians 4:15-18. Though some things seem to be going wrong, and some things seem to be worn out, what does this present tribulation really mean?

4. In the following passages there are specific difficult situations being experienced by people who cry out to God. They seem to be facing the impossible but God has a different idea. In each of the situations, pretend you are the one facing the difficulty. From that perspective, try to answer the questions that follow:
a. Read Exodus 14:10-12; 23-28:
• What is their difficulty?
• What were they afraid was going to happen?

• What actually did happen?
• Did they experience any difficulty or pain?
• Was the experience worth the pain? Did God let them down?
b. Read Acts 28:1-6

• What is their difficulty?
• What were they afraid was going to happen?
• What actually did happen?
• Did they experience any difficulty or pain?
• Was the experience worth the pain? Did God let them down?
c. Read Acts 12:5-17

• What is their difficulty?
• What were they afraid was going to happen?

• What actually did happen?
• Did they experience any difficulty or pain?
• Was the experience worth the pain? Did God let them down?
5. In light of these various events, would it be reasonable to expect that God would respond to a situation or a predicament in a way and on a schedule completely different than our own?
6. Read Isaiah 55:9,10 and briefly summarize the thought given therein:
7. Focus on care and prayer...
Many times, we evaluate the value of an event based on initial information and first conclusions, but, as it turns out, the meaning after all the data is in is usually quite different. We are in danger if we jump to conclusions about what God is doing with us!
Do you trust the Lord to do well in events you do not understand? Do you have the faith that the final outcome will be in your best interests? As you share in prayer with your group, see if you can open your heart to being willing to accept and trust in His outcome.

[03/22/20]   4 ways to choose love in difficult times:

1) Encourage each other.
We live in a time where we can't be physically present with one another. We can still text, email, call, and connect on social media to check on them and encourage them to stay focused on what God has for us.
2) Support each other.
Check in with your neighbors, friends, and family to see how they are doing and if they need anything. Drop off a meal for those who can't and shouldn't get out. "Do not withhold good from those who deserve it when it's in your power to help them." Proverbs 3:27
3) Love each other.
The second most important commandment is to love thy neighbor. When you love someone, you are concerned about them and want to show them in all ways how important they are to you. Pay it forward. If you are in a drive through, pay for the person behind you. We have heard of stories when people were in line at the grocery store, they helped pay for groceries for the person in front of them that didn't have enough money for all of the groceries they had. " ....our love should not be only words and talk. No, our love must be real. We must show our love by things we do." 1 John 3:18
4) Point each other to Jesus.
Jesus calms the storms, but it's up to you to remind others of His promises and pray for each other.
Search for your church or a church you KNOW is a God fearing church for online services and share those services with your friend and family. 💕

[03/17/20]   We will be dismissing our Wednesday night Bible study for a while. We will continue monitoring what's happening in our state and region. Be in prayer and please use common sense!! Love y'all!! 💕

[03/15/20]   Hearing of several churches cancelling their services tomorrow breaks our hearts but is completely understandable. With this being said, we will be having service tomorrow but ask that if anyone is sick or feels an illness coming on, please stay home. We are also requesting no hand shaking or hugs to keep the spread of germs at a minimum. We don’t want any feelings getting hurt but ask to be mindful of the situation.💕

[02/08/20]   Be in prayer for Pam. She was admitted to the hospital with chest pain. Her BP is not good.💕

[02/05/20]   Due to the possibility of sleet/snow tomorrow evening, we will be cancelling bible study. Everyone stay safe and warm. 💕
