Welcome to our service today. It is great to have you here and we would love to invite you to stay after the service and join us for tea and coffee.
Most of us struggle at some time with spiritual discouragement and lethargy. Some days our circumstances threaten to overwhelm us, and we struggle just to pray. Many times we just don’t feel like doing the things we know we should. For one reason or another, God sometimes seems far off and unreachable.
David faced times like these in his life. The Psalms are filled with verses that express his despair and feeling of abandonment. Yet the Psalms also give us the key to living victoriously during the dark periods of life.
My circumstances or feelings do not change God! He is the same God today as He was when He created the world and fed the five thousand. Recalling God’s faithfulness and control over everything that touches us gives us strength to walk with God even when we feel like giving up in despair. He is perfectly capable of sustaining us if we will only let Him. We simply need to choose to delight in and diligently consider God’s principles and character despite how we feel. Choosing to delight in God might not be easy. It might even involve hard work but it is key to our daily walk with Him.
With love & blessings, Sandra
