Fully Known, Fully Loved
By Tracey Dyck
I used to be a really bad driver.
Mind you, I’m not claiming to be a great driver now but I used to be a *really* bad driver.
Once, when I was seventeen, I was leaving to go to work and put the Toyota Camry — which my parents had officially bought to be my mom’s car but unofficially had become the car for my sister and I to share — in reverse. Once the car was in motion, I checked the rear view mirror (oops) and saw my dad’s Chevrolet Avalanche parked behind me, slowly magnifying as I approached.
I panicked. And slammed on the accelerator. My car made impressive contact and pushed his truck towards the street.
This Sunday we’re going to look at one of God’s promises that’s probably the most misused and misunderstood. What does the Bible mean when it talks of God’s blessing? You maybe shocked to discover that when God is said to be present in the bible, his purpose is usually not to judge or correct, but to supply some need. God is the great giver, and He loves to bless us! It’s this promise of his blessings that releases us to enjoy life to the fullest. Join us this Sunday as we learn how to unlock God’s blessings in our lives.
Don’t forget who you are. On Sunday we re-framed testing as a time where our true character to be revealed, and an opportunity to choose to become more like God. This week we focus in on the tempting side of testing, and some techniques the enemy uses to entice us to be less like God and more like him.
While we are currently unable to meet on Sunday mornings we know that day is coming. In anticipation of this we have begun preparing to welcome you back. We are looking for volunteers willing to help clean and sanitize as part of this preparation. If you are interesting in helping out please contact Colleen.
