We look forward to seeing you!

We’ve all noticed I’m sure that Spring didn’t really exist this year.  From freezing to measurable perspiration!  Things just aren’t always predictable.  I was telling someone the other day about how predictable Kansas roads are, how everything is mapped out in square miles and its hard to get lost even when you truly don’t know where you are going.  But even then I was remembering that in reality once in a while the bridge is out, the hill is in the way or the path just meanders where you wouldn’t expect.  So again nothing is really predictable. 

The author of Hebrews knew this when he wrote in Hebrews 11:1 Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things unseen.  It’s what I’ve heard described before as a “Know So Faith.”  If only I had the same amount of faith in God that I have in that kitchen chair I sit in every day.  How many hundreds of times have I sat in that chair and not stopped to think first about whether or not it would hold me.  Yes certainly things of this earth do fail us at times, but the idea is still there.   So many things that I just trust, yet so many things that I also worry or fret about, not remembering the assurance I have from God that yes indeed all things do work together for those who love God (Romans 8:28).  That even in those tough times God is there, caring and bringing us through (Psalm 23).  Thank you Lord that even though I forget, you do not.  That even though I worry, you do not.  Thank you for being faithful even when I’m afraid of failure.  Lord I ask, I pray for your healing.  In Jesus Name, Amen.

Praise God! Pastor Alice
