Attention Drivers near Akron Terminal: if you are driving north from the terminal, please see the Route 8 updates regarding the construction area near Stow, Oh. There are a lot of ramp closings to note. Please plan ahead while this construction continues.
#safetyfirstjrayl, #jraylsfamilymatters

Important Construction Updates:

We want to ensure all residents are informed of the upcoming construction that will result in ramp closures and new traffic patterns. Construction is set to resume on State Route 8 northbound just south of Graham Road to north of State Route 303 on Wednesday, Feb. 26. All of the construction work is dependent on weather.

Please see the list below from ODOT for ramp closures and the changes to the traffic patterns for the northbound lanes.

Detour signage for ramp closures on Graham Road and Steels Corners Road will be posted when the ramps are closed.

We appreciate everyone’s cooperation and patience throughout construction. We will do our best to provide as much advance notice and signage as possible to keep everyone informed so our residents can plan for closures by allowing extra time for traveling alternate routes.

Peace Prayer 2/26/2020 Ezekiel 37:3-5 He said to me, “Mortal, can these bones live?” I answered, “O Lord God, you know.” Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them: O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. Thus says the Lord God to these bones: I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live. This is a very familiar story where God demonstrates the power of the spoken word. There are many other examples of biblical characters asked by God to speak things into existence. To some degree this truth is still relavant today. Speaking positive things draws them to us, just as speaking negative things does the same. The personal growth world encouraged visioning, dream building, and speaking affirmations. These are all powerful tools that build on the spiritual truths we see in scripture. Thank you God for giving me a mind, a heart, and passions to follow. That you for giving me visions, a calling for service, and dreams to fulfill. Thank you for the opportunity to speak over things, to speak faith in church and prayer, to speak life and beauty as I try to help bring it about. Thank you for speaking in my life through scripture and so many people of faith. Thank you for bringing about your will with you divine Word. Thank you for giving me and others at least a little power of words to bring about desires of the heart and spirit. Help me dear God to see your power made manifest by your words. Help me to open my mouth to speak hope, peace, encouragement, faith, and prayer. Help me to see your will and blessings unfold. Help me and each of us control our thoughts and words to bring about the good and not the bad. Help us keep in faith and keep positive expecting things to unfold according to your plan and providence. Bless oh Lord the words that I speak, may they be uplifting and faith filled. Bless your word as it comes in scripture, in faith filled messages, in poetry, in prayers, in sacred music. Bless this life you have given me with hope, peace, faith, and service. Bless the hearts that long for more joy and comfort. Bless the words we share of inspiration, encouragement, and praise. Amen Randy Lewis peace maker https://youtu.be/DcZeIAR9rsw Bones come Alive
Peace Prayer 2/25/2020 Daniel 3:25 The king said, “Look! I see four men walking around in the fire. They aren’t tied up. And the fire hasn’t even harmed them. The fourth man looks like a son of the gods.” Inspiration today has been a challenge for me. Fortunately it has not been too cold but gray, drizzly and dreary. I want sunshine, I want to see flowers, I want to go for a long nature hike. However, it seems many areas of my life are drizzly and gray. I have been praying for years now for God to get me out of the gray, out of the challenges, out of the struggles. Inspiration did finally come listening to a preacher whose message was to invite God into the challenges, into the heart ache and disappointed, into the fire. Thank you God for being with me, hearing my prayers for deliverance, hearing my hopes and dreams, hearing my complaints and bitterness. Thank you for showing up in the firy furnace. Thank you for showing up in the boat with the storms raging. Thank you for coming into my broken heart. Thank you for the Iessons I'm forced to learn. Thank you for the endless waiting that is building my character. Help me Lord to grow in grace. Help turn my bitterness into beauty. Help turn my fears into faith. Help turn my disappointments into delights. Help turn my waiting into wonder. Help me to invite you into the messes in which I find myself rather thank demanding deliverance. Help me to trust your timing, trust your mysterious ways. Help me to have peace while I am growing. Give me comfort that you will ride out the storm with me. Help me to see you in the flames with me. Bless dear God your perfect timing. Bless the chains that are holding me for the right timing to unfold. Bless the hearts that are hurting waiting for your glory to unfold. Bless the hurtful people in my life that are toughing me up for greater impact. Bless the problems I face, you are using them to help me learn and mature in faith. Bless the victories when they finally come bringing powerful testimonies to share. Amen Randy Lewis peace maker https://youtu.be/2q7hMfmVL3I Holy Spirit You Are Welcome Here
Peace Prayer 2/23/2020 Ephesians 4:15 "Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ." I draw great encouragement from this song. It is a genuine prayer casting off the temporary circumstances. It is a fresh attitude of prayer that nurtures my soul. Take away everything in this earthly flawed part of reality in which we all live, and we are spiritual beings having Earthly experiences. Real truth is deeper than circumstances. Real truth is in the spirit realm with God as the creator and sustainer of all things. Our souls are not physical. Real truth is beyond the physical. Thank you God for hearing the genuine concerns of my soul. Thank you God for manifesting at times in physical ways that bring great blessings. Thank you for your forgiveness that restored the soul in need of healing. Thank you for genuine people who point to spiritual truths. Thank you for your peace and hope that trancends the physical dimension. Thank you that I can be grateful no matter what the circumstances I have to face. Help me dear God to forgive when people have not been truthful with me. Help me to make better choices informed by spiritual realities. Help me to heal from the terrible pains I have suffered, help me to still give you the praise. Help me to know you make everything work for my good when I feel broken and abused. Help me to open my heart to you in my genuine prayers. Help each of us live out your truth. Bless dear God the hearts that call upon your care and nurture. Bless each of us with better choices. Bless even those who inflict pain with deceit, in their hearts they are searching for truth. Bless the messes we get ourselves into, may your spirit bring beauty and joy from the ashes. Bless the hearts that truely want to serve you. Bless this wonderful world this day. Amen Randy Lewis peace maker https://youtu.be/qkSBmRAVXNc Here's my heart Lord
Peace Prayer 2/22/2020 Leviticus 17:11 "For the life of a creature is in the blood..." My inspiration this morning came from a man at the American Red Cross, we were both donors sharing stories. He was probably ten years older that me but still in excellent health, he still plays softball. What inspired me was he used to play 5 nights a week, two nights with his company team. Their company team also use to complete at the blood mobile racing with their blood donations, like I have done before. Everyone wins giving the gift of life, true life blood. Thank you God for the advanced that allow these life saving gifts. Thank you God for so many committed souls with healthy bodies giving blood for those who desperately need it. Thank you for your healing power working thru so many. Thank you for those whose lives are restored receiving needed blood transfusions. Thank you for this simple gift, easy to give, that makes such an impact. Help me dear God to always remain healthy enough to pass on this wonderful gift as a blood donor. Help me to inspire others to give of themselves in this way. Help the loving hearts that service in this vital health ministry be productive and fulfilled. Help those who need life giving blood get it when they need it. Help each of us give where we can to help others. Bless oh Lord all of the blood centers around the country and the world, may they be unhindered by unneeded obsticals. Bless the loyal volunteers who can't give blood but can volunteer their time and encouragement to those giving. Bless the lives of those who can give blood with a special blessing for their efforts. Bless the lives of all those who are impacted so greatly by these health miracles. Bless this day and all it brings to your glory. Amen. Randy Lewis peace maker https://youtu.be/Zev5tHjCB_s At the Cross
Peace Prayer 2/21/2020 Job 22:27-28 "You will pray to him, and he will hear you, and you will fulfill your vows. What you decide on will be done, and light will shine on your ways." I think most of us dedicated souls want God's will to be done in our lives, no matter what it means we have to go through. Jesus said it in the Garden before his arrest, "Thy will be done". It is an act of submission allowing God's will not my will to be done in my life. It can be a very tall task but ultimately God will make sure that we benefit. Jesus was crucified but then exhalted. Most of us won't be asked for that big of a sacrifice. Thank you Lord Jesus for offering your will to God. Thank you for bringing me into the family of God. Thank you for giving me tasks to perform. Thank you for making a way for me when I don't see a way. Thank you for having a purpose and mission for my life, it gives great meaning. Thank you for opening the doors for me to follow the path you have for me. Help me dear God to really be submissive to what you really want from me. Help me make the sacrifices that you require of me. Help me to see the direction for which you are leading me. Help me to be faithful even when I am confused or troubled. Help me to find the peace that you have for my soul. Help me to find joy in serving you and your people here on Earth. Bless oh Lord the plans that you have for me. Bless my heart to keep it true and pure. Bless the efforts I put into to the work you have given me. Bless the people you have brought along side me in service and in my blessed life. Bless the hearts that are resistant to your call. Bless the lives that are given freely to you to use. Bless the journey that brings you praise and glory. Amen Randy Lewis peace maker https://youtu.be/aIlw7BInVw0 "Let it Rain" David Crowder
Peace Prayer 2/20/2020 1 John 1:5 "This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all." My heart was touched today reflecting on forgiving myself as I reviewed Mary Morrissey's forgiveness meditation series. In my inner spirit, over my 50 plus years, I have made some major mistakes and have some big regrets that shaped the way my life has unfolded. I don't like to dwell on them. None of us are perfect. In tears I gave some of these failures again to God seeking restoration from some of my self-condemnation. Real forgiveness releases the one holding onto the hurts more than the perpetrator. Thank you God for the power of forgiveness to bring healing. Thank you for the deep emotions that make me genuinely human. Thank you for opportunities to be at peace and in deep reflection, it controls stress and clears my mind and heart of the baggage that weights me down on the inside. Thank you for people who bring your messages of hope and reconciliation. Help me dear God to move forward in more peace and confidence in the power of the restoration that comes from you. Help me to let go of the condemnation. Help me look afresh to what you have in store for me ahead. Help me to claim the power of forgiveness in all areas of my life. Help me forgive again myself and those on the outside who have hurt me, it's an ongoing practice like brushing teeth. Give me hope and encouragement for new growth in my spirit. Bless dear God so many ministries of reconciliation. Bless all the hearts with self-inflictted wounds. Bless the heart's that seek peace by forgiving others. Bless all of your servants with peace in their own hearts and peace between each other. Bring wholeness and joy. Amen Randy Lewis peace maker https://youtu.be/dxKLnySMbYM Amazing Grace (Broken Vessels)
