Weekly News-June 12

Details…my head has been buzzing all week with an overwhelming amount of details.  It’s hard enough to have your head full of details, but my problem is that I’m not having any clarity on how to carry out those details.  And then I begin to worry and fret which causes me to see life through a distorted and discouraging perspective.  A couple of days ago, I was sitting outside on my deck and I glanced at a pot of pansies that were on the table.  It struck me how simple and beautiful they were growing, with not much effort on my part.  With perfect timing, as only God can, He brought these verses to my mind…

“Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?  
And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?” ~Matthew 6:27,30

DEEP SIGH…so much truth in those verses – holding both a conviction and a hug from God.  The conviction?  Do I trust God with ALL my details?  Not just SAY that I trust, but SHOW that I trust by how I live.  And the hug – Jesus telling me that He has both me and the details covered – so STOP worrying.  Are there some details that you’re wrestling with or worrying about today?  Maybe, like me, you need to let go and let God handle those things.  He’s promised that He’s got us and that our details aren’t a problem for Him.

A few announcements for you:

  • TONIGHT – everyone (the WHOLE family!) is invited to a “Come & Go” Wedding Shower from 7:00 to 9:00pm at the Doell Farm, to celebrate Dana (Doell) & Connor (Bayduza)’s August wedding.  If you are comfortable, feel free to have a socially distanced visit with neighbours outside in the yard. (There will be some seating available, but if you are able, please bring your lawn chairs.)  Or if you prefer, drive by in your car and share your brief well wishes with the happy couple.  This will be an OUTSIDE event, maintaining Social Distancing with the new Government rules of 100 people or less.   Contact the organizers, Charlene or Ruth if you have any questions.
  • This Tuesday evening, the Church Board will be meeting again to discuss how to journey forward in this season that we are in.  Please be praying for their wisdom as they continue to discern God’s leading in all of this.
  • Pastor Marc will be away on vacation from June 15th – 22nd.  Please be praying for him and his family as they spend a little time away.
