Now that most groups and programs are up and running for the fall, our website's calendar has been updated. As things change from week to week, feel free to call the church office anytime for the most current info.
Looking at the calendar, and my personal calendar at home with its many coloured notations of appointments, commitments, invitations, etc., I see I am a tad too busy. I'm a 'list' person and right now, my to-do list is at least a mile long!
I'm determined, however, to enjoy each and every day as a gift from the Lord! I'm determined to not waste a day looking longingly into the future to when I might not be so busy. 'Right now' I have a delightful teen son who is enjoying life and friends and all kinds of new experiences this year, and 'right now' I have a new husband! and life is good and happy and fulfilling and full of hope!
On the other hand, there are huge questions in my mind about how a few situations will unfold, and there are circumstances really close to me that are absolutely heartbreaking. I continue to pray for God's intervention to provide miraculous resolution, healing and wholeness in His perfect way in His perfect timing. For His glory. And because I don't want certain loved ones to hurt so much! And I know He can do it because I am living proof of how He works!
So when we feel too busy or stretched in every direction (emotionally or any other way), let's determine to always put God first and protect that peace that's only possible when we walk with our hand in His. As believers He is always working behind the scenes on our behalf. As He reveals His will for us and what we should do (or not do - sometimes it's okay to say 'no'), we have everything we need to do all that God is calling us to do right now. Whenever you do what God has called you to do, in any situation - He will do something greater!
Okay, so this blog wasn't so newsy! More like a little glimpse into my journey - but maybe it will be an encouragement to someone 'out there'!
