Jesus said to His Disciples, 'Follow Me and I will make you....' It sounds simple enough, He leads and we follow. If I wanted to go to your house but I didn't know the way it could take me a long time to fine your house. If you drove over to my house and said, 'follow me and I will lead you back.' My need to know the way is no longer my concern but I only need to follow you. Trouble comes when I start to think that you no longer know the right way to your house. I start to question the route you pick even when I don't know the way myself. I start to slow down and you start to slow down because you know I only need to follow you. Soon we are both stopped and you ask, 'is there a problem? ' Such is our walk with the Lord. We slow down when He leads us on roads that we don't like to travel. I encourage you today to look up for the road ahead looks bright and where He leads me I will follow. Keep the faith for we know that Jesus only lead us in paths of righteousness for His name sake and we will arrive at His house and be glad.
Sunday morning I will be sharing, "The Lesson In The Storm." Why does the Lord lead us or bring us into stormy places? What it is that we learn in a storm that we don't learn in the calm? Bring a friend with you this Sunday as we enjoy the presence of the Lord together.

In talking with both families they know where their loved one has gone. They grieve over the loss yet they rejoice in the great assurance of Heaven.
