I spoke last night for an hour and another three hours this morning on the importance of racial diversity at the London Institute in Corona. Then I came home to finish my message for this weekend, where I will be outlining the direction of our church for 2009.
Just know that as I read through all the comments on my recent blog post that I was deeply moved and touched by all of your thoughts and prayers. I wish I was able to explain to you how encouraging YOU are to me and my family. The church is a family. And you are a part of my family. Your words and prayers are AMAZING.
So many thoughts, so many things that need to be said, but just know that God is still on the throne and that no matter what happens to any of us, that God will always sustain us. I know that God has never failed me, and when we look at all of life, we are the most blessed people on the earth.
My prayer for YOU is that God would comfort you the way he has comforted me. It really is a miracle that no matter what happens to us that God is able to turn it into good. Romans 8:28.
If we had to rely upon ourselves for peace and hope, then we would ALL be in trouble. But one only needs to read the last few chapters of Job to realize that God is all powerful and all knowing, and in HIM ALONE are we to trust.
I will see you this weekend, with a Bible and a friend. I am excited to share the plans for 2009.
LOVING YOU and LOVING GOD,
