Dear Flora First Christian Church,
The word of the Lord spoken to the Prophet Isaiah keeps popping in my mind. mind.“My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways.” (Isaiah 55.8).
Being from Angus, Texas I had zero thoughts of ever being in Flora, Indiana. Truly His ways are not our ways. So as Christians we hold on to and claim the words from Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is the assurance of thing hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”
These are powerful words to all clergy. We believe in these words, we claim these words, and we live by them. Often, not knowing why. We just trust in the Lord.
As Flora First Christian Church I pray you do the same. The church is in a particular season. We are asking, searching, and knocking on the heart of God to be in the heart of this congregation. His promise is to be with us always. The word of the Lord is always the truth. He is always faithful.
Though his thoughts are not our thoughts and his ways not our ways, they will be. We have to believe and trust. Because He lives we can face tomorrow. There is hope. The Lord is our provider. He will
provide His pastor for Flora FCC.
“Test me says the Lord of hosts; see if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you an overflowing blessing.” Malachi 3:10
God loves you and me, PTL!
