Writing down God's Promises

main image

I have recently gotten back into journaling during my quiet time. Life got busy and my time each day with the Lord was getting shorter and shorter. Not good.

         Most times I reflect on the passage of Scripture I’ve just read. Something about God’s character and nature strikes me as amazing and I have to reflect on it. Or maybe it’s something I honestly don’t understand and I write my questions.

I almost always offer praise to God for who He is and what a privilege I have in getting to know Him in all His wonder. And that leads me to thanksgiving for how I’ve benefited from who He is and what He’s done.

Sometimes I’m lead in a totally different course. The Lord leads me to reflect on yesterday’s events and what I saw Him do or what I’ve learned. Other times I think about something big facing me that day. How I’ll need the Lord’s guidance and strength to face a particularly difficult task.

My journaling always leaves me with a feeling that I’ve truly had an encounter with my Savior. He has graciously spent time with me, guiding me to understanding and strength.

He created you to get to know Him and enjoy Him forever. Looking forward to how He changes us as we grow together. See you in church on Sunday!

Working Together

I so appreciate the many people who make New Covenant work. We are a team. We are a family. All of us working together, guided and empowered by the Holy Spirit, makes the work of the Kingdom possible.

Pastor Joe has been a blessing from the very beginning of his ministry here. Our group leaders and kids teachers diligently prepare and present quality experiences every Sunday. The praise team takes extra time each week to prepare and practice to bless the rest of us.

And so many others work behind the scenes as well. Our volunteer custodian humbly cleans up after us every week. The hospitality workers keep us blessed with food and fun. The trustees make sure the facilities are effective and safe. The greeters and ushers make us and our guests feel welcome.

And who can forget the nursery and preschool workers who make sure our kids experience church as a fun and safe place? Not to mention the children’s church workers, sound guys, counters,  deacons, KidZone outreach, library, seniors, prayer warriors. And on it goes!

I feel so privileged to be part of such a team of people who commit themselves first to the Lord and then to us. See you in church on Sunday!
