A Word From Mike…
5 For God alone my soul waits in silence,
for my hope is from him.
6 He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
7 On God rests my deliverance and my honor;
my mighty rock, my refuge is in God.
8 Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your heart before him;
God is a refuge for us.
This Psalm was a part of the lectionary reading for yesterday, for those of you familiar with the three-year cycle for lectionary readings and preaching (Year A, B, and C). As we have been studying the life of Abraham in recent weeks we are reminded of what a refuge God proved to be, when the family of Abraham remembered to look to God for their hope. As we consider the blessing of our church over the decades and the blessings yet to come, may falsehoods be put aside and may truth, hope and trust guide us. With God as our refuge, what blessings await us as individuals…what blessings await us as a congregation!
Thanks for sharing the journey,
**Please be saying extra prayers for Dustin. He has broken part of his wrist and as of the printing of this bulletin, has an appointment on Tuesday to set a time for surgery. I am sure he might even appreciate some food 🙂
*Please note that the schedule could change this week depending on when Dustin’s wrist surgery is set and how the recovery process goes.*
