A Personal Note From The Pastor
As I write this, I'm listening to Christmas music. Yes, you read right, Christmas music! Why? Because I need it. I need to be lifted up today. It is expected that our governor will ask everyone to not celebrate Thanksgiving with people outside of your home. That puts a real damper on things. I enjoy eating turkey with our family, then watching football or taking a nap. Why? Why is this pandemic thing going on for so long? When will it ever end?
In Psalm 6:3, it says, "My whole being is shaken with terror. And you, LORD—how long?" Have you asked that question lately? As we look forward to Sunday, my message addresses our need to thank God for His future help. By faith, I know that He is working in everything we are facing today. He is protecting me, providing for me, and will give me the strength to make it. So I have to take a deep breath and just let Him have all my concern, fear, worry, and exasperation.
And for me? I'll just listen to Christmas music for now!
Onward and Upward!
