Due to Covid-19 and the announcement from our government officials, all church service gatherings will be postponed till a later date.

My Trust is in Him

With all the things happening over the last several weeks, I found myself in an emotional quandary. The COVID virus had claimed over 100,000 lives. Now, there is rioting in the streets across the country, fires in various cities, and so many people without jobs or income.

When I heard on the news that George Floyd was calling out for his mother, I grabbed my chest and said, “oh God, oh God,” not knowing that his mother had passed two years prior. I felt like it was my son on the ground drawing his last breath calling out for me! Pain overwhelmed my heart!

I shared with my husband that I felt like I was on some kind of Si-Fi planet. I had never felt quite that way before. I felt waves of dizziness and nausea sweep over me. I knew that I had reached the point of ‘cannot take in anymore news’.

As I was preparing to stream the Sunday morning weekly message with my husband, Pastor Nate, The Lord ministered to my heart. This is what I would like to share with you.

The Lord reminded me of a quote by Corrie Ten Boom, who has since transitioned into the arms of Jesus. "When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, you don’t throw away the ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer."

Through this, the Lord so beautifully spoke to my heart, “Yes, the tunnel is dark, but there is light at the end of the tunnel.”

I responded, “Yes Lord, and You are that light and I am your child. Your light is in me to brighten my journey in every situation.” At that moment the burden I had been experiencing all weekend began to lighten. I tell everyone that whatever can be shaken will be shaken, but the Lord Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever (Heb. 13:8 KJV). That means He does not fail.

Lam. 3:22-24 (NKJV) “Through the Lord's mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. ‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘Therefore, I hope in Him!’ ’’

We are daily renewed by manifestations of God’s love, grace, and mercy. They are always fresh and vigorous, constant and perpetual. Each morning offers us spiritual light, joy, and comfort; and whenever it is morning with the saints, we have new discoveries of the love of God toward us. Such are the compassions of our Lord.

To have God as our portion is the one and only foundation of hope. The Lord is our portion in life and in death, today and throughout eternity. All He is and has is ours; we are heirs of His glory to enjoy forever. Therefore, we shall not be consumed, no matter what the devil stirs up around us.

He is our portion large and full, inexpressibly rich and great, a soul satisfying one, and will last forever. And happy are those, who - from their hearts, under the testimony of the Holy Spirit, and through a grace experience with Jesus - can say He is their portion and exceeding great
reward.

Today my prayer is: “Lord, our nation is hurting. Lord, we need You! Please sweep through this nation and heal this land. Restore our strength, renew our minds, and cast out anything that is not of You. In Your Son, Jesus' name, WE pray. Amen.”
