Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. -
Everything that lives changes – nothing ever stays the same. We can try to hold still, but everything around us will keep moving on, leaving us behind. No matter how bad, or how good, the past seemed to be, it is gone. It's time to move forward, keeping your eye on the prize. Get ready to train, to diet, to accept the smooth roads along with the challenges all along the way. With Christ in your life, what lay ahead is always better and worth the effort, with no looking back.
Life is uncertain. Things can change in unexpected ways from one day to the next and the path of our lives is not always something we can determine for ourselves. J.R.R Tolkien wrote, “All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.” We can choose to stumble along as the wind blows us, or we can trust in the One who makes the wind blow and know that He will guide us through whatever unexpected turns lie ahead.
In Acts 2:42 & 47, the Scripture says, “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers…praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.” It was a big change from the old ways, especially among the Jewish people. What we now call the "New Testament" Church sprang into being following the resurrection of Jesus; full of energy and excitement, purpose and promise. In a fractured world, the Church was focused on unity guided by love. While not an easy path, they forged a new reality that forever changed the course of history. Today, in a no less divided world, the 21st Century Church has the same commission to keep. When the love of Christ is able to shine through the noise and nonsense of confusion and conjecture, everyone will want to walk in the warmth of His light.
It was a big change, painful in many ways, for us to leave our comfortable church home on Duval Road, but we follow the will of God and the work He has for us ahead. With one voice we invite the hurting, the searching, the empty as well as the overflowing, to be a part of our Christ-
