Building on the Rock
This is a new time and a time for new things. We as a church are going into a new season as we seek to find a Minister for Portrush.
It may be a time to stop some things but then to discover others. We will discover new ways to look after our church family and community.
Don’t try to do everything but there will be one or two things God will have set for each of us to do. If we concentrate on prayerfully doing these as well as we can this will be enough.
Here are a few thoughts :-
God is fully God in every season of life and all that is happening now has a place in his greater purposes. His purposes are good. In time, we might begin to understand more about this but we do know for sure that we can rest in his hands. He is able to bring us through stronger and wiser. If we look to Him in trust and faith we will be like that tree that is planted by the stream which flourishes even as the circumstances become hostile and threatening.
Read slowly the passage and pray it into your heart and for us all.
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
whose trust is the Lord.
He is like a tree planted by water,
that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes,
for its leaves remain green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought,
for it does not cease to bear fruit.”
