Dear TFBC Family,
Every week, I have 1 ½ acre of lawn to mow. I have bushes to trim, weeds to wack, flowers to water, and dozens of other chores because of this yard. It feels like a curse that never ends! That is until I sit down on my front porch late in the evening and soak in the vista.
You see, that’s when I see my yard for what it is: A Gift. I have learned much from taking care of this yard. Perseverance, patience, and the value of investing time and energy are just a few of the lessons my yard has taught me.
I have often viewed spending time with God’s Word as a chore, just like caring for my yard. Spending time reading scripture can feel like just another item on my to-do list. That is until I slow down and take time to see all the things God’s Word has done in my life.
This weekend, I would like to share with you five essential things we need to remember about God’s Word and how it relates to our lives.
You can find all five things in this verse:
“Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow. He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word.”
James 1:17-18 (NLT)
I am excited to see you this weekend!
