Lavilla- Jacksonville, FL

There is an area of downtown Jacksonville known as Lavilla that has sparked interest as a section of our city with great potential. I did a Wikipedia search for the community……look what I found! This is just the first few sentences you can read the rest here.

Settled by John Jones under Spanish land grant in 1801, the area remained independent until annexed to Jacksonville in 1887. During the Civil War years from 1861 until 1867, many positions in its government were held by African Americans.

Leaders Need Our Prayers

In a recent article by the Times-Union about Jacksonville’s new councilmen facing a number of challenges. My thoughts were spawned to think about how needful it is for the believers to cover our leaders in prayer. Not just national, but state and local as well. Despite who we may have voted for or may not have voted for- they are still in positions of authority. We must cover them.They need God’s wisdom, direction,  and protection. Hey, if someone is in a position to make decision’s on your behalf woudn’t you want to pray for them? I know I would.

I Timothy 2:1-2 (NLT) I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. As you make your requests, plead for God’s mercy upon them, and give thanks. 2 Pray this way for kings and all others who are in authority, so that we can live in peace and quietness, in godliness and dignity.

Big Ups For City Rescue Mission!

OK I admit….I failed to post a blog yesterday!But today I want to give a huge shout out for City Rescue Mission here in Jacksovnille. It has been extremely cold here. It’s almost as if we skipped Fall and move directly into Winter. The Florida Times- Union highlighted the significant work of CRM in a way that really made me glad to see that there are many groups out their doing phenomenal work for those less fortunate. While I’m sure that there are many others wotking in the same capacity, CRM really stood out..

Jesus said in Matthew 25:35 For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home.

This was the living Gospel on display. Keep up the good work CRM! To read the article click the link below. I’ve also posted this to my Facebook page.
