me", "Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there". All you need to do is hear
the words and they bring to mind the thought of the product. God's word is more

putting in place a plan that in times of need those words will return to us
like a familiar jingle. They will be clear and evident in our lives giving us
hope and wisdom to keep us touch with our Lord. God will come to our mind and
we will never forget what He has done for us. Have you read God's word today?
Pray that you might find more time to spend reading about Him. Find out who our
Lord is and what our Savior has done for us. Look for the blessings He has
provided. May God bless you always.
