God's Faithful Blessings

God's Faithful Blessings

Here we are, in the month of June. 2021 is nearly half over and it seems we are beginning to breathe easy again. 2020 was a tough year for many of us. We lived in fear of a deadly virus, being laid off from work, having to do school remotely away from friends, and to top it all off, we couldn't attend church.

And yet, in the midst of that God has been faithful. He allowed us to use technology to continue to meet, though remotely. He protected many of us from getting COVID and those that did thankfully survived. He has blessed our church with the sale of the old office building, allowing us to remodel the loft for an office and then to repair and paint the old building. It now looks great and is one that we can all be proud of to glorify God.

This morning I was reading Psalm 128. It just seemed to sum up my feelings today. So here it is, enjoy!

Psalm 128

   1How happy is everyone who fears the LORD, 

   who walks in his ways! 

   2 You will surely eat 

   what your hands have worked for. 

   You will be happy, 

   and it will go well for you. 

   3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine 

   within your house, 

   your children, like young olive trees 

   around your table. 

   4 In this very way 

   the man who fears the LORD 

   will be blessed. 

   5 May the LORD bless you from Zion, 

   so that you will see the prosperity of Jerusalem 

   all the days of your life 

   6 and will see your children’s children! 

   Peace be with Israel.

May continue to bless you and our church as we move forward with reopening, regathering, and restarting soon!

As always, Onward and Upward!
