Note from the Pastor…    Some of my Sermons seem to strike a chord with our people. Several weeks ago, I preached a Sermon on the topic of “Going Through Tough Times”. Here is the first page of that Sermon, along with a prayer that can be used after reading it.
Psalm 105:4-5 – Look to the Lord and his strength;  seek his face always. Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced.
Life is full of things that try to push us down. We all face disappointments and setbacks. Maybe you received some bad news about your health, or perhaps a relationship didn’t work out. That was a setback. It’s easy to be discouraged or lose your enthusiasm or even be tempted to just settle where you are. But if we’re going to see God’s best, we have to have a “bounce back” mentality. That means when you get knocked down, you don’t stay down. You get back up again. You have to know that every time adversity comes against you, it’s a setup for a comeback! Remember, as a believer in Jesus, the same power that raised Christ from the dead lives on the inside of you. There is no challenge too difficult, no obstacle too high, no sickness, no disappointment, no person, nothing that can keep you from your God-given destiny. If you stay in faith, God will turn what was meant to be a stumbling block into a stepping-stone, and you’ll move forward in strength, full of faith and victory.
Prayer:  Father God, I praise You for Your faithfulness. I choose to get back up and move forward today. I am not going to stay down because of discouragement and disappointment. Thank You for setting me up for success in everything I do. I choose to trust and rely on You, knowing that Your plans are for my good. I know my best days are ahead of me and look forward to the blessings You have in store for me in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Blessings to all, Pastor Rick
