On May 31, 2020 our live message was by Rev. Marcus McDougle. Scriptures reference John 16:33 with the subject; Staying positive in a negative world.
Continue prayers: for our readers who are facing health challenges, Rev. Jeff Stingley Mrs. Doretha Sturgis Ora Nell Matheny Jackson (relative of Peggy Lewis) and Tabitha Medders. Sympathy, Love and Understanding to the families of Casey Jones.
Food For Thought: Plenty of us have heard “You can’t win” so there’s no sense trying all our lives, have to shake off those muddy messages before we can run free. All the resentment and self-pity in the world, understandable though it may be, won’t turn what is, into what ought to be. The mud is there. Until we commit ourselves to cleaning our shoes doing our best and concentrating on the race at hand our running shoes will be heavy. All that happened yesterday, not today. And today’s race is the race that counts. We need to stop resenting where we are and start loving ourselves for the daily courage it takes to suit up and show up. We deserved to win, and we can win if we stop looking backward. God has not given us the spirit of fear.
