Dearest Church family,
Each Friday I am curious about what God might prompt me to share.
As many of you know a few weeks ago Donna and I were blessed to attend our BC Conference AGM in Mission BC and the Pastor's Spouse Retreat in Whistler. One of the speaker's themes I was challenged with was;
in my Lord
Psalm 18:19, ESV He brought me out into a broad place; he rescued me, because he delighted in me.
The devoted part I get. That's been a strong part of my journey for years. But to be Delighted in Him.... Hmm. I would like more of that.
One of God's attributes is Joy. And this Joyful God Delights in Me.
As I thought about that, I realized it changes lots of things. Like:
- Not needing to perform to get His Favour
- Letting go of things I wasn't sure I wanted to let Him have control of
- Resting in the knowledge that He Knows me AND still Delights in me.
Don't forget this Sunday, May 14th is Mother's Day
We will have Roses at the church to give out to the moms there.
Continue praying for those in our communities of Care. God is moving! Thank you Jesus, we can trust that whatever comes our way, you are not surprised and it is not too big for you.
Zephaniah 3:17, NIV The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”
Isaiah 61:10a, NIV I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God.
Choose to receive His delight.... it changes life
Have a blessed week,
On Your Team
