Good Morning Church Family!
It was such a humbling day for me yesterday when Kelsey contacted me about moving these posts to the Church's Website. It floored me to think that my posts about my struggles and growth would have such an impact. It stills puzzles me that when Jennifer contacted me a few months ago that I was the one to reach out to. Truth be known (again), I was scared and thought that she made a mistake contacting me. I have daily struggles with traffic, my temper, people that lack common sense, messy people, people that have no respect for our Country and the list goes on. I want to change it, but you and I both know we cannot. I have posted my most "go-to" Proverbs verse below...
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
Who am I to try and fix the messes I have no control or understanding over? I pray; pray to God that he will just give me the strength I need to let it go. Leave it in His hands. Folks...we are going to face things in our life we are never going to understand or fix; that is why it is AWESOME to have God in our corner. He can handle it all!
The verse below...
2 Corinthians 11:30
30 If I must boast, I will boast of the things that show my weakness.
I admit, I talk a lot of smack. I talk trash about my sports teams, about my favorite sports cars, how good looking I am. 😋 None of that matters. What does matter is that I do discuss my weaknesses. I do this, because I need help and need to work on my sins and problems, because I'm man; I make mistakes and without God I will never grow and learn to deal with them, address them or fix them. It truly is great to have such a forgiving, loving and powerful supporter in my corner - God. We can achieve all through Him.
Love you all; continue to pray for our Church family and the extended church family dealing with losses, troubles, trials, and so much more. Pray for Pastor Corey this week as he comforts the families who are laying to rest their loved ones. Pray that God gives PC and Micah traveling mercies this week. God is listening. Pray for our Church; the leaders of our Nation; for our kids and what ever weighs heavy on your heart. Pray for our Missions Team as they make their final preparations this week for their departure this weekend. PRAISE Him and all of His glory! He is an awesome God!
