Mathison was the program guest and spoke on April showers and May flowers. He also autographed copies of his book, “Where is America Headed?” “These ‘April’ showers come, often bringing adversity into our lives,” Mathison said. “We can use these ‘showers’ to grow in a positive way so that the May flowers may come. And, the flowers will come if we have faith that God, the Shepherd, is guiding our lives. We can choose to let these April showers be stumbling blocks in our paths or we can let them be stepping stones to where God wants us to go or what He wants us to be.”Mathison chose Psalm 23 as the text for his message and used sheep and the Shepherd to assure the audience that God is always present and leads each of us through times of showers and into times of flowers.“God guides us through the green pastures and by the still waters and along the paths of righteousness,” Mathison said. “God provides what is necessary for us to go through the showers. He knows there will be times when we stray – when we’ll make bad decisions – when we’ll bring on the April showers. But nobody goes beyond the scope of God’s reach. God is with us during the toughest times. He is there so we don’t have to stay in the valley.”Mathison reminded the ladies that God will prepare a table for each of them in the presence of their “enemies.” Mathison inspires Female Factor guests Sponsored Content Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits By The Penny Hoarder Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration By Jaine Treadwell Published 3:00 am Friday, April 13, 2018last_img read more

This strategy, along with changes to our regulatory framework, will help realise the government’s desire to see fully self-driving cars on the UK roads by 2021.Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive: Connected and autonomous vehicles will transform our lives, with the potential to reduce up to 25,000 serious accidents and create more than 300,000 jobs over the next decade. Today’s announcement is just one step towards increasing automation but it is an important one enabling increased convenience especially for those with restricted mobility. It is another welcome commitment from government to keep the UK firmly at the forefront of connected and autonomous vehicle development and rollout.
