In life we all have things that happen that make us happy and things that make us sad. At times it's been the sad events that make us really appreciate the happy events. It's the times that we cried that help us to enjoy a good laugh. It's like those cold winter days that make us really enjoy a warm day like yesterday. The trouble is there are some people who don't like either cold or hot days and will find something to complain about in everyday. The strength or the energy that we use to complain, worry, and be fearful could go to better use when we declare that goodness, mercy, love, joy, and peace shall follow me all the days of my life. It's been said that things turn out best for people who make the best out of the way things turn out. Psalm 118:24 "This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it." Learn to enjoy the moment you're in, to love the family and friends you have, to rejoice and be glad in the day that the Lord has made for you. Confidence is high that you are wiser than you used to be and your best days are yet to come.
Last Family Sunday was wonderful and three hands were raised to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior. Our God keeps good books and I thank Him for so many people who work in the church to make us who we are.
This Sunday I will be sharing, 'Looking Back or Looking Next.' The past can be good and have things in it that give us a sense of comfort and peace. What's next? In God next can be totally different than the past, are you ready for what's next?
Continue to pray for all those in need. Looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice
