It looks like our weather has taken a spring in the right direction. Warmer days will make us all feel better. I am reminded that we are to walk by faith whether the weather agrees with us or not. Spring happened on the calendar weeks ago and the truth that spring came is not determined by the warmth of the day but by the fact of time. The weatherman didn't wait for it to be a day of 10 degrees and then announce this is the first day of spring and in the same way when God makes promises He sets the promise in time and when the time arrives so does the promise. We need to be ready to receive His promise while we live in the upper room of faith, no matter what the climate is around us. When the time arrives we then can declare it even before we see it come to pass. It was spring before it felt like spring so we walk not by feeling but by faith knowing that what He has promised, He is able to perform it, and He who said it shall bring it to pass. Enjoy the day that the Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in it.
This is Mother's Day Sunday and what a great day to honor and celebrate our Moms. I will be sharing with you, 'Old and New Mothers.' Have you ever watched a new mother and an older mother and how they respond. The new mom says be careful of the baby, no one hold the baby, did you wash your hands before you touched the baby and the older mother passes the baby around like a football. Experience is a great teacher and if we fail to hear the wisdom from the older people in our lives then we will likely become frustrated with the present circumstances in our life.
On Mother's Day there is no evening service. Continue to pray for all those in need, looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice
