Samuel took a stone . . . and named it Ebenezer; for he said, “Thus far the Lord has helped us." - 1 Samuel 7:12 (NRSV)
When I first sang the words, “Here I raise mine Ebenezer; hither by thy help I’m come,”* I had no idea what Ebenezer meant. Then I read today’s scripture and learned that Ebenezer refers to a stone memorial that Samuel built to remind the people how much God had helped...
What can I use as a reminder of God’s faithfulness?

Emmaus helped me laugh again, and it brought joy back to my life after the loss of my child. I am now stronger than ever in my walk with the Lord. And to this day, I continue to sponsor pilgrims to The Walk to Emmaus. In my local church, I have led our discipleship team and have had the opportunity to start new Sunday school classes and various women’s ministries. ¡De Colores!”
