All throughout my history, Your faithfulness has walked beside me, the winter storms made way for spring in every season from where I’m standing.
These days upon us are strange. We can shop wherever and whenever, but churches are scoffed at if we choose to attend. We push past each other in aisles at the supermarkets, but 6 feet apart in pews/chairs is frowned at. We can touch all the cereal boxes, and jugs of milk, but it is too much of a risk to pass around the offering plate. (I am now realizing I much like the offering plate at the alter anyways!)
What a mixed up world we are living in. Our days are numbered as we turn further and further away from our Creator. Now more than ever is the time to be standing up for what we believe in. Terry Noel, who spoke today at Prince Albert Bridge Ministry said it best when he stated that citizens could walk into a restaurant and openly praise our Lord for the abundance (food!), and yet now, we (most of us) will get right down to scarfing our meal back with a simple thanks (if that).
Show up, show your faith, pray out loud, show love! Pray over your neighbour, your family, your marriage! Pray for Saskatchewan, our Nation, our world. Pray for the persecuted!
Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and his glory appears over you.Isaiah 60:1-2
For ever it seems, Christianity has been mocked.
Remember this: you had a purpose before anyone had an opinion!
