The GRATEFUL village


Luke 9:58

King James Version

58 And Jesus said unto him, 

Foxes have holes, 

and birds of the air have nests; 

but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.

When I think of JESUS, how hard He worked, how faithful He was, how obedient He was, I become shamefaced.

He didn't even have a place to lay His head.

Everyone sought Him for healing, and for ministry, every time.

Grateful is the PRAISE village where we have a place to rest and sleep, no matter how humble our means.

We thank GOD for the roof over our heads, hot food on the table, a place to sleep, clothes on our back.

We do not seek luxury, only a place to keep our families safe, and warm.

We pray that all are in a good place, too.

We give shelter to the stranger, who passes by.

We feed the hungry.

We teach children about JESUS.

We give ALL glory to GOD.

We listen to His SPIRIT, for instruction.

We produce only what is needed.

We do not hoard, or deprive others.

We have faith, that GOD will ALWAYS provide.

We share what we have.

As the Bible decreed, we leave some for the poor.

Leviticus 23:22

King James Version

22 And when ye reap the harvest of your land, 

thou shalt not make clean riddance 

of the corners of thy field when thou reapest, 

neither shalt thou gather any gleaning of thy harvest: 

thou shalt leave them unto the poor, 

and to the stranger: 

I am the Lord your God.

There is nothing to steal from us.

We have no wealth to speak of.

We do not have stocks, or bonds.

We have no need for things of the world.

We live simply.

We do not mind obscurity.

If anything, we welcome it.

Our only desire is to know things of GOD.

To know His commandments.

And to live by it.

As JESUS lived by example, we try to do the same.

Our hearts remain forever grateful.

That's why we praise God, for we are grateful.
