    And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. (2 Corinthians 12:9:10)

  • DT C.O.G.I.C.

    Ephesians 6:13″Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day,and having done all, to stand.Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”

  • DT C.O.G.I.C.

    2 Samuel 22:33-37 (New Living Translation)
    33 God is my strong fortress;
    he has made my way safe.

    34 He makes me as surefooted as a deer,
    leading me safely along the mountain heights.

    35 He prepares me for battle;
    he strengthens me to draw a bow of bronze.

    36 You have given me the shield of your salvation;
    your help has made me great.

    37 You have made a wide path for my feet
    to keep them from slipping.

    Our theme – ought to be – to pursue different passions for different people. And even though I do not know these wonderful people (some who are already present with the Lord), my heartfelt compasion, thoughts and prayers go out to them and to their loved-ones. Nothing, not even death or injury can separate any one of them from the LOVE of GOD!

    This news come as a tremendous shock. Jesus said to be ready. I hope that that Wright family will find solace in the Word of God at this hour of sorrow. Incidently, Earth has no grief that heaven cannot heal. I hope and pray that Jesus Followers will soon understand, that, salvation prepares us for his coming.Precious in the sight of God is the death of his Saints. Let us continue to strive for perfection, love PEOPLE and not Things.Amen!

    No matter what your going through God will make a way.
    No matter what your going through God will make a way.
    In the middle of your morning in the middle of your day.
    When your night seems dark and gloomy you can lift your voice and say.
    No matter what i ‘m going through God will make a way.
    No matter what i’m going through God will make a way.

  • Chip Davis

    Rev. Timothy Wright Family and Church Congregation,

    My love and prayers for you and your family are unshakable. Over the years, you
    have been there when “Chip Davis Productions” was first getting started, and you
    had faith in us to come to Columbus with you and your choir, on several occassions.
    May God keep you and your family, and give you peace and comfort through
    these most difficult times. God only knows why this has happened, but God will
    also be there and in control for you.


    1. Hear the blessed Savior calling the oppressed,
    “Oh, ye heavy-laden, come to Me and rest;
    Come, no longer tarry, I your load will bear,
    Bring Me every burden, bring Me every care.”

    Come unto Me, I will give you rest;
    Take My yoke upon you, hear Me and be blest;
    I am meek and lowly, come and trust My might;
    Come, My yoke is easy, and My burden’s light.

    2. Are you disappointed, wand’ring here and there,
    Dragging chains of doubt and loaded down with care?
    Do unholy feelings struggle in your breast?
    Bring your case to Jesus—He will give you rest.

    3. Stumbling on the mountains dark with sin and shame,
    Stumbling toward the pit of hell’s consuming flame;
    By the pow’rs of sin deluded and oppressed,
    Hear the tender Shepherd, “Come to Me and rest.”

    4. Have you by temptation often conquered been,
    Has a sense of weakness brought distress within?
    Christ will sanctify you, if you’ll claim His best;
    In the Holy Spirit, He will give you rest.

    Come unto Me, I will give you rest;
    Take My yoke upon you, hear Me and be blest;
    I am meek and lowly, come and trust My might;
    Come, My yoke is easy, and My burden’s light.


    To the Wright Family and Church Family,

    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your wife and grandson. My family will continue to pray for your continued progress and pray that GOD heals you of your loss and your physical strength.
