A Word from Pastor Tammy Losey...
Psalms 105:4 ~ Seek the LORD, and His strength: seek His face evermore.
Memorial Day is set aside to remember those who have died, especially those who have died in our nation’s wars. As we remember with thankfulness those who are resting in the grave; as we remember with hopefulness all who are expecting that great wake-up call of Christ; our resolve is strengthened to actively seize the day, to do our part to serve our God, our country and others. Death always highlights the temporary nature of this life, and places in bold letters the truth that our tomorrows are not guaranteed.
God, throughout His Word, continually calls us to remember, and not to forget - to remember what He has done for us, to stop and be thankful. As believers in the 21st century, we can look back and see how God’s plan has unfolded, as we trace His will and work in the world and in our personal lives.
We need to count our blessings as we remember, knowing that God inhabits the praises of His people! Even when life is difficult and things don’t seem to make sense, we can rest in the assurance that He is in control and He is working out His Sovereign Master Plan. God has our best interest at heart, trust Him!
Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone. ~ G.B. Stern ~
