Pastor's Note

How are you Church

I hope you are having a wonderful summer.  Some of you probably already had your summer vacation and getting ready for new fall season and others, maybe you are on vacation right now? My prayer is I hope you finish summer well as your soul have been nourished and rejuvenated by the Lord.

Resting is needed to refill ourselves with the divine power of God in our lives so that there's something we can offer to people. Sometimes we don't have to go too far to be recharged by the Holy Spirit. A passion to please God. A passion to please God's creatures, passion of Christ is contagious.  Whatever happens, we know He has permitted it to take place to teach us and to perfect us for His service. He will enrich our circumstances, be they pleasant or disagreeable, by His presence with us.

Ask God to keep you from worrying about what others think, and to be content with whatever He sends your way. All the tomorrows for our lives have to pass Him before they get to us!

Philippians 4:11 "I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances."

Are you in need of the Lord?  One thing that I know about God is His faithfulness.  Maybe you do not see but he will meet your need in His time. it may sound superficial but that's true count my word for it. Let us learn to be content like how Jesus was while he was on earth. He learn to be content because of what God the Father promised Him.

Today is your day in Christ Jesus!
