Don’t Let your Hearts Be Troubled. Trust in God, and Trust in me. John 14:1
Our minds are so consumed with everything we are bombarded with each new day. I have to say, it’s exhausting to be alive some days. I chuckle at how much we are all taking in and honestly, how well we as a church family are doing. Kudos to you all. Many of you have needs and worries that are so legit and burdensome that my heart goes out to you everyday. So, if you don’t hear it from the rest of the world, hear it from me. Well done good and faithful servant. well done.
Our minds have a hard enough time with CNN so asking you to think about things of eternity may be the “straw that breaks the camels back”. But when it comes to a world with no boundaries of space and time, we must sit for a moment and embrace the idea that God is in control, that God is watching closely, and how, the Lord is standing with you in everything you face, I face and what we face together as a church body of Christ. “Trust me”…he says. “don’t allow your hearts to be troubled”. Don’t let the evil one tease you or taunt you. Don’t give heed to the things that don’t make a difference in my kingdom Jesus says to us all. Don’t be anxious about what is God’s responsibility. For the Christian is faithful and to be a follower of Jesus doesn’t require us to be rocket scientists (thank you Lord I would fail that test). No code breaking, though you may have to suffer through a sermon of mine that had to many rabbits in it (sorry). Nevertheless, you can anticipate what God has in store for you as you wait patiently for him to answer prayers. The Almighty Lord our God loves you, wants what is best for you, and eagerly awaits your prayers and requests. Jeremiah says, “I know the plans I have for you.” Plans of blessings not for harm. Rest easy beloved in Christ, Amen. <>< P. COBB
