Good morning and welcome to Faith Chapel. I am so glad you are here today and I am so sad that I will miss seeing you!?!?! We are on vacation this week and return next Saturday. Please pray for us because, believe it or not, we really need it! You know that I do not like to miss a Sunday with you all. You mean the world to me and Sondra and we thank God everyday for you and for being in each other’s life. I love doing life together. It is how we are designed. Sometimes, when life gets difficult it is sometimes easier and sometimes harder to be in one anothers’ life. We really do need each other but there are times when we are challenged by each other, or confronted by each other’s love, or we are tired, etc. We may try and pull away…but God has a better plan than pulling away, than isolating ourselves, than wanting to not change this or that. He calls us to live life together. To care for sometimes, and to be cared for. A time to give and a time to receive…any of this ringing an Ecclesiastical bell? It is in His incredible design, and His wonderful boundaries, that we can experience life and that life more abundantly. I am especially thankful to God for our dependence on Him and or interdependence on each other.
This morning Pastor Mel is bringing the Word of God to you through a message that I know he has prayed about. I so appreciate Pastor Mel and Peggy. We have been ministering together since the early 90’s! God placed the Jones family in our life at a time when we needed people who are exactly them! God is incredibly strategic. He knows what we need even when we are not sure. It is a joy to have them in our lives and a joy to share ministry with them all these years and to be family. I mean where would Jaleah be if Bobby hadn’t married her…I mean really! Jambo-Jaleah!
Have a great day
