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.
This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it! (Psalm 118:24). It doesn’t say tomorrow, and it doesn’t say yesterday…..this is the day.
Though change can be challenging and transition tiring, we are to rejoice and be glad in it. So often we can pray for it to end, or for things to return to what we once knew…remember the good ‘ole days! But life keeps moving. For those of us who love and follow Jesus, we’re always growing in maturity towards a heart like His. It is a wonderful thing, but the everyday reality of growth can sometimes push us out of our comfort zone.
“Rejoice” in the original Hebrew means to rejoice, exult, be glad and also to tremble in fear. We can be fearful or uncomfortable without losing our joy. When we rejoice in the Lord, knowing our joy is rooted in Jesus, we are glad. It reminds us that He’s got us… He has a plan, a purpose, is sovereign overall and loves us more than we can ever imagine.
With love & blessings,
