Weekly News – Oct. 8th

“In order to withstand discouraging circumstances, we need to develop the clear sense that God is out for our good.  We can do this by increasingly becoming aware of the blessings that attend our every moment.”  ~James Bryan Smith

“When good is found and we embrace it with abandon, we embrace the Giver of it…Every second is an opportunity to praise.  There is a choosing to be made.  A choosing at each moment.  This is the Praise Habit.  Finding God moment by revelatory moment, in the sacred and the mundane, in the valley and on the hill, in triumph and tragedy, and living praise erupting because of it.  That is what we were made for.”  ~David Crowder

This weekend is Thanksgiving.  A time set aside to intentionally give thanks for all the blessings that we have.  I don’t know about you, but for me, when life gets challenging, I find it more difficult to be thankful or to even see the blessings that are around me. But Paul reminds me in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 to “Be thankful in ALL circumstances…”.  Even in the difficult circumstances that I would rather not be in, there is STILL something to praise and thank God for.  

My prayer today, is that God would remove the blinders over our eyes, and give us new vision to really SEE the blessings and goodness that are ALL around us.  And then to voice our thanks and praise to Him, the Maker and Giver of ALL good things. 


You are welcome to join us this Sunday at 10:30am for our Thanksgiving Worship Service.  Seats will be available on a first come, first seated basis, as we continue to observe the Provincial Covid guidelines of 1/3 capacity in our building.  If you are unable to join us in person, feel free to check out our Livestream option, available HERE. 

Take care,
