"And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose."
Your response to this verse at times may be Pastor, what about this or that? How come the difficulty or the hardship we encounter? Questions may plague us about God's goodness, His faithfulness and love for us. Not having a crystal ball or all of His plans in stone, leaves us to the sticky thought of faith, hope and love, our lack thereof, or our engaging with Him. God's faithfulness towards His people have been evident from the beginning of time, even in our waywardness and disbelief. How He makes all things work together for good is really up to Him. Our part is to love Him and stay the course in Him, trusting that as we do our best He will do the rest.
Today after Service - If you can, please stay for some food and fellowship right after service.
Black Friday Blues - Immediately after the holiday we celebrate as thanksgiving. Contrary though, is the fact that so many take on the additional stress of shopping, juggling bills and additional pressures of how to and why this or that. Don't get caught up and be in prayer for those around you during these stressful times where we've taken Jesus out of the season.
