Sunday Renewal

Aren't Sundays wonderful?! It's like stopping at the filling station to make it through the journey of another week! Meeting together with friends and family, with a common purpose - to worship God and learn how to become more Christ-like. We give each other support and strength. Some days we may give more, and some days we may need to receive more, and that's the beauty of it! We become like a grove of Aspens, woven together to help each other remain standing when the storms hit us and the winds are the strongest.

A small stick is easy to snap in half. But if you take a bundle of those little sticks and bind them together with love and unity and faith in God, the bundle cannot be broken. Alone we are weak. Together we are strong. That is why God put us in families! That is why we have friends. And that is the blessing of a "church family."

Here are a few bits of encouragement and wisdom that others shared with me today:

Be prepared to step in and render service - before any request is made. When we are serving others, we are serving God.

Honesty is like pregnancy. Either you are, or you aren't!

When obedience ceases to be an irritant, and becomes a joy - THEN are we empowered.

 I hope we all find many opportunities to serve others this week - and a wonderful week it will be!
