Life changed for us when our Pastor we was under left the church. He felt God calling him to a different church. Take decision also changed our titles and our lives. It left us wondering what was next for us. We decided to leave that church too and follow God's plan. Making a long story short, we tried a few churches and found one. Fast forward many years after that, our daughter told us about Hillside Christian Church in Napa and we have now been there over 18 years. Such an amazing Pastor, his family, staff and many others. I meet new friends all the time and love that I am part of leadership for Women's ministry. I also help out in kids ministry. It's not the titles that define us, but our attitude and actions of being a Christian. Keep doing the right thing and watch how God answers your prayers.
BEHIND THE WHEEL OF LIFE ~
Corrie Ten Boom writes: Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire?
Psalm 23 English Standard Version (ESV)
The Lord Is My Shepherd
A Psalm of David.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
3 He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
for his name's sake.
4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
I love Psalm 23 and I know that God is in charge no matter what things happen. I have learned to trust the process and now that God is leading. Yes, even in the hard things and I love how when I look back, I can only see goodness and mercy from God. His plan is to prosper me and keep me. His plan is that I dwell in his house forever. He does restore my soul and there is no need to fear. He comforts me in all times. I hope you can feel the peace of God today and always. I don't alway see the next step in life, but I do trust that process. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. Don't let the title define you totally, know who you are in God and count blessings of that.
