From the Pastor’s desk…

Has God revealed Himself to you recently?   A few days ago my attitude needed to be “adjusted.”  While I was driving I was becoming “overly concerned”  about several issues and was wondering to myself how and when those issues would get resolved.

As I pulled away from a stop sign, I noticed a wild turkey emerging from the woods.  I applied the brakes and focused on that turkey.  Following behind that turkey were seven very young turkeys. Those young turkeys safely crossed the road behind their mother.  Immediately I became convicted.  I was reminded of the words of Jesus. “Why do you worry? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”

My attitude quickly changed.  As I continued on my way,  I began to thank God for His Word and by faith thanked Him for the resolutions to the issues I had been “overly concerned”   about.

The presence of God surrounds us all.  If we look for Him, we will see Him.
