It always amazes me how quickly the summer seems to fly by. Vacations are still going on for some, while for others they are long gone. The stores are having their Back to School sales and the children can hardly wait to get back… well, maybe not all of them.
As we all enjoy our final days of summer, I pray that God has granted you rest and re-creation. I pray that as we get back into a normal pattern, whatever that may look like in your home, you take time to spend with God. I encourage you to make an effort to put God in your normal pattern. Recognize that having a daily space in your day for prayer and reading his Word is vital to your spiritual health. Just as taking a yearly vacation with your family from the craziness of life is important for your mental health, taking time daily with God away from the craziness of life is important for our spiritual health.
If you have never had such a habit, I want to take this opportunity to invite you to join us in worship in the coming months. We’re going to talk about how God speaks to us and how we can be more attentive to his voice. We’ll talk about how each of us can grow in this way and how God can grow us together.
May God bless your waning days of summer and we’ll look forward to seeing you in church soon!
