The Ladies of the Henning Church of God met on Tuesday, July 12, in the church fellowship hall for their regular monthly meeting.
President Carole Spencer presided, and Cindy Fleshman led in prayer.
Dyan Hefner presented the devotion, “Under His Wings,” with scripture reference Psalm 91:4.
We all need protected just like a mother hen covering her chicks and this is how God protects us. Chicks hide under their mother’s wings where they are safe and warm. The Lord keeps us under his wings.
We need protection just like David running from King Saul and he poured his heart out to God. (Psalm 51:7) We find comfort under his wings in all our tribulations. (II Corinthians 1:3-4) We all have sorrow and hurts that need comforted. He may not provide or protect us the way we want. Ruth lost her husband and moved to another country and married Boaz. She certainly did not plan to go through this in her life.
We also have love under his wings and love will never fail us. Nothing can separate us from the love of God. (Romans 8:38-39) We have satisfaction under his wings in which he provides for our physical and spiritual needs. We rejoice and are happier under his wings. (Psalm 63:7) What are you finding under his wings?

Ken Biron teaches religion classes along with his daughter Rachel. The school has a new principal. They need sponsors for their children. Their monthly budget has increased to $14,500 a month. Many families are still touched by the pandemic and cannot work. Many still need food. They also have churches that need repairs, and they need work camps.
