Psalm 119:14 "I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies, as much as in all riches." There is nothing wrong with having riches and enjoying the good things that this world can provide. The Psalmist is saying that his rejoicing over the personal internal goodness of God is equal to having great provision around him. We shouldn't need to receive a new house or drive a new car to rejoice when we remember what the Lord has done for us. My testimony is one of being greatly lost and then wonderfully found, totally blind but now I can marvellously see. I was dead in my sins but now am alive, praise the Lord! I declare that it's no longer I that lives but Christ lives in me.
When we forget our profound testimony we may need another reason to rejoice but when we remember what the Lord has done for us we need no other reason to rejoice. Confidence in you is high that you will go into today will a smile on your face and a song in your heart for what the Lord has done for you. (And yes amen....the Lord has not forgotten His promise towards you.)

This Sunday morning I will be sharing, 'Life Storms.' Storms are a part of life and the Lord gives us promises to help us rise above them. Would you like to rise above?
We are moving on through summer and soon it will be time for Family Sunday. It's Sept. 3rd so start thinking about what you plan to bring and who will plan to invite. I thank the Lord for His presence in the church and the wonderful people that come together each Sunday to worship Him.
Continue to pray for all those in need. Looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice
