Love in Christ,
Wow! It’s hard to believe that May is already here. Time does fly when we are working together to advance the kingdom of God. This year, May is a month filled with celebrations: May 3rd is National Day of Prayer—we will gather in the Chapel at 6:30 for a time of prayer; May 13th is Moth-er’s Day/Ascension Sunday—I will be traveling to Virginia to be with my Mother and we will have our own Phil Reed bring our Mother’s Day message, please keep him in your prayers as he prepares the message God has planned for him to share with you; May 20th is Pentecost Sunday/Graduation Sunday—We will celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit from God the Father and the Son and celebrate the graduations of Andrew Hicks from high school and Allie Hicks from college; May 27th is Trinity Sunday/Peace with Justice Sunday; and May 28th is Memorial Day—A National Day to remember the price of freedom and those who lost their lives defending our freedom. We also have our Wednesday Evening Meals at 5:30 p.m. for fellowship and holy conversations. Please plan to join us for these opportunities to worship, pray, celebrate and fellowship throughout the month.
I will be finishing up our five-week sermon series the first week in May on the “Fruit of the Spirit.” You are each encouraged to reflect upon the nine parts of the Fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness/generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Re-member it is one kind of fruit and that all nine parts are the evidence of the work of God through the Holy Spirit in our lives. Celebrate the ones you already have evidence of producing and ask God to help you grow into the ones that are not as developed. It is also important to understand the fruit is God working, living, and loving through each of us.
Also, as commitments and activities increase throughout the month, please be intentional to make You and God-Time. Time for you to rest in His holy presence, listen to His still quiet voice, receive His visions and revelations, and grow ever deeper into an intimate relationship with Him. We all need to incorporate God-Time into our lives. It is what gets us through the stuff, empowers us when we are weak, and propels us forward in our journeys. Enjoy! Enjoy! Enjoy! Your God-Time.
May God bless each of you abundantly, bestow His favor upon you, place His hedge of protection around you and give you His Shalom!
