Our lives are so busy. I know mine is. On days like today, I greatly value the concluding words of one of my favorite psalms. Psalm 42:10 says, “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” Be still and know that I am God. What a powerful statement. Sometimes busyness can allow doubt to creep in. But in stillness, when we slow-down enough to meditate on God, His word and His goodness, we will then know that God is indeed God. And because He is God, He will remind us of the assurance that He can take care of us. Make sure to take time to be still and know!
Friday, August 5th at 7pm we will have a Church Conference. This session will be in-person only. Please make plans to attend this important informational session.
