Deliverance at Hand
district convention 2006!
what a great weekend. it is so amazing how jehovah always provides exactly what we need when we need it. and for me, even beyond just the information that was recieved. i was able to visit with some dear friends that have really encouraged me to keep going in my service and to stay strong.
the talks this year were terrific. very specific and to the point and direct. the end of this system is so close. it was very good hearing the encouragement to stay focused and realize just how close it is. there is so much that can side-track us or that satan can use to seduce us away. good reminders. and the interviews and demonstrations were great. they felt so real.
here are some points and quotes that i enjoyed:
  • Jehovah has already taken steps to deliver us in sending his son to earth and making arangements for our ransom. He yearns to deliver us.
  • we already recieve blessing from the ransom including forgivness of sins. jehovah "spot cleans" us until we can be completely removed of sin in paradise.
  • "The desire we have to serve does not come from within, it comes from holy spirit." -Sterling Hedberg
  • we all have a place within jehovah's congregation that we should embrace and cherrish.
  • jehovah delivers us today from painful things we go through. he may not take away the problems but he sill give us the power and wisdom to deal with it.
  • the angels are actively involved in the ministry work today. they are helping obedient humans to succeed.
  • we have every reason to have confidence in future protection, deliverance,a dn escape from our heaven ly father. he is the "provider of escape."
  • our survival depends on obedience.
  • Don't please men. Seek to please Jehovah and that will please all those who love God.
  • we have a share in helping others to have diliverance.
  • marriage creates a oneness of purpose--always working together to serve Jehovah.
  • new explanations on some of jesus' illustrations.
  • the drama was AMAZING!! jeff and kelly were in it. we had special effects!! ;)
  • "So many can measure cost, but not many can measure value." -Brother Jones (visiting speaker)
  • "The convention is our chance to stop and re-group." -Brother Jones

i won't give away the new realease but i know that everyone will enjoy it and the talk accompanying it. i've already started reading! :) it was really just a wonderful weekend. what a true blessing from jehovah.
