Words of Encourgement 

 

Dear Church Family Members and Friends,

I pray that this is finding you as well as can be expected during this time of patience and obedience.   We know that this Coronavirus  has affected all of us spiritually, mentally, physically, socially and financially. However, we are conquerors through Jesus Christ who loves us and died for us.  Because we are over-comers, and as I said in yesterday’s message on my Facebook page. Occasionally the pressures get to us and sometimes some people crack, crumble and crash, but those of us who know and trust God should know that He still knows the plans He has for us and that they are not to harm us, but to give us an expected end.  We must realize and believe that in these pressures of LIFE, we can find HOPE instead of despair.

       Beloveds be steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, that your labor is not in vain.  While you are out of school or work or working from home, you can read your Bible, pray throughout the day for this virus to end and that a solution be found to cure it.  You can also call or text a family member or friend and give them a word of encouragement or share a scripture.  You see you really do matter and now is the time for your light to shine brighter than it has ever shown before.  Please remember the famous quote, “ To the world you are one person, but to one person, you may be the world”.

With God’s Blessings,

Pastor Lavina H. Smith🙏🏼💕🙏🏼
