IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL . . .

It is well, it is well
God has won, Christ prevails
It is well, it is well
With my soul!

I have appreciated so much the sermons our Pastor has brought the last few weeks concerning salvation and what it truly means.  It has made me re-evaluate myself and my standing with God.  I remember when God started calling me to Himself. He found me, I didn’t find Him.  I remember when the truth of Christ and Him crucified became more than just a head knowledge, but a heart knowledge that changed me from the inside out.    

I remember confessing that I was sinner and asking for forgiveness.  I have been forgiven and saved.

I came to know that the Holy Spirit had come to dwell inside of me and I learned the truth of that.  Romans 8:11 “But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.” 

I walk daily in a right relationship with God.  I am far from perfect, but I know that my eternity with God is not something I am waiting for, but is here and now while I live in this mortal body and will continue on after I leave this world and live with Him in Heaven.  

It is well with my soul!  

CHRISTMAS MUSIC . . .
We are continuing our Christmas choir practice in the choir room at 4:00 p.m. each Sunday evening.  You are invited to come and sing!  We would love to have you!
It’s all for His glory,

NO LONGER SLAVES . . .
You split the sea so I could walk right through it
My fears are drowned in perfect love
You rescued me so I could stand and say
I am a child of God

How boldly we can come and say that we are children of God when we have reached out and received into our hearts Christ as our Lord and Savior. 

We sang a lot this past Sunday about God’s amazing grace and how that grace and perfect love breaks the chains that Satan binds us with.  I am so grateful that God was so patient with me and sustained my life long enough to see the truth and accept it and live my life in freedom from all the fears and lies that plagued me. 

I am thankful for our Pastor who preaches the Word so boldly and fearlessly.  People these days do not want to hear that if you die without Christ, you are going to hell.  That’s “old school” preaching as he said.  That’s the truth of it and that is the reason that those of us who have received Christ will spend our eternity in heaven with Him.  It just doesn’t get any more plain than that.

2 Corinthians 9:15 “Thank God for this gift too wonderful for words!”

CHRISTMAS MUSIC . . .
Everyone is invited to come to choir practice each Sunday at 4:00 p.m. in the choir room.  We had another great rehearsal this past Sunday evening.  Come and bring your children if they would like to sing.

Ephesians 3:30 “Now to Him who is able to do immeasurable more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.”

For His glory,

LIVING HOPE . . .
How great the chasm that lay between us
How high the mountain I could not climb
In desperation, I turned to heaven
And spoke your name into the night
Then through the darkness
Your loving kindness tore through the shadows of my soul
The work is finished, the end is written
Jesus Christ, my living hope

One of our favorites to sing, it tells of the only hope we have, not just any hope, but our living hope.  The mercy and grace of our God is beyond anything any of us can truly comprehend.  It is only by the gift of faith that our Father has given us that we can even have this boundless mercy and grace that gives us the right to be called children of God and heirs to the Kingdom.

Ephesians 2:8 “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God”

God left nothing to our own doing.  He sacrificed His Son, (Himself).  He forgave all our sin, past, present and future.   Not even our believing on Him is of us, but of Him.

So what did God tell us to do?  Mark 12: 29-31”……..love Him with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and then love others as you love yourself.”

How?  We are never going to love as God loves.  We are to work toward it though.  I fail every single day.  But, I try to remember each morning as I go out into the world to be mindful of each person I see and try to see them through God’s eyes.  

LOVE GOD, LOVE PEOPLE!

CHRISTMAS MUSIC . . .
We had a great first practice this past Sunday evening, even with many out of town and some were ill.  It sounded wonderful, but we all missed the ones who could not be there.  Be sure and remember each Sunday at 4:00 p.m. in the choir room.  We will have the children singing, so if your child wishes to sing, bring them too!

For His glory, 
Debbie
