On Sunday, June 7, we will begin a phased re-opening for face-to-face WorshipGatherings. At this time, in order to maintain physical distancing, we will not be able to offer children's ministry. For those who are unable to join us in person, we will continue to live stream on our Facebook page.

Join us for worship each Sunday morning at 9:30am

Short Memory

1

Money for me is a consistent source of worry. Whether it is my own personal finances or those of the church, they are often not far from my thoughts. God has even more consistently provided for me, my family, and his church, and yet with each new season, my heart seems to revert to a pretty familiar place.

While I know in my head the promise, "And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus (Phil 4:19)", my heart seems to say, "Yeah, but this one is different, it’s bigger, and God probably needs my help!"

I might be able to chalk it up to a faulty memory, except that when it comes to forgiving other people, my memory seems to be perfect. Despite every attempt to forgive, it seems to be difficult to truly leave it behind.

I think for me, my greatest need may be to be "transformed by the renewing of [my] mind..." (Rom 12:2). To be able to think correctly about both. Recognizing God's great faithfulness, but also that I can forgive out of a realization that I have been forgiven much.

Oh Lord, renew my mind, remind me of your great love and power, give me peace that grows from a great sense of your faithfulness and power, give me the ability to forgive that grows from a realization of the forgiveness I have received.
