From the Pastor's Desk
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Praise God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! The Father is a merciful God, who always gives us comfort. 4 He comforts us when we are in trouble, so that we can share that same comfort with others in trouble.
Have you ever faced troubles? I know that seems like a strange question to ask, but truth be told as long as we are living and breathing we are going to face troubles. There is no escaping trials and difficulties, they are a part of everyday life.
So how do we overcome our troubles? Simple, turn to God for comfort and help. God will encourage us and put people in our path to help us through those difficult and trying times.
Notice what 2 Cor. 4 says, “He comforts us when we are in trouble.” Why does God comfort us? Two reasons; He comforts us to help us through our difficulties. Secondly, he helps us so we can be used to help others through their difficult times as well.
In other words, God helps us so we can help someone else. My question for you; How are you helping or who will you help? If you have overcome your difficult time, pray and ask God to bring someone your way that you can help.
Remember we all need a little help sometimes, especially those of us who think we have everything under control.
One thing I have learned over the last four years is this; I don’t have a lot under control but I still trust God to do what He does best.
All I can say is I’m learning to trust in the process every day.
In His Love,
