Never Alone

It has been a blessing to write a devotion for Christmas this year.  Below is the post from 12/28/18
Pastors Devotion Friday December 28th,

Mark 4:35-41 (NKJV)
35  On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, "Let us cross over to the other side."36  Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him.
37  And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. 38  But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, "Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?"
39  Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace, be still!" And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. 40  But He said to them, "Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?"
41  And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, "Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!"

Good morning FSBC, after a twenty four hour glitch, Centurylink is back up and we are able to get online. My initial response yesterday was, "Alexa , why are you not responding?  Then I added, "Good Grief!" So yesterday, due to the fact that the church office also has the same provider, sent me to McDonald's to borrow a WiFi signal.  (Desperate measures for desperate times.)  This minor inconvenience to us(me) is a reminder that we are not the only ones going through things at the time.  This glitch appeared to be nationwide.  Life is like that sometimes.  The dark cloud, or the circumstance  that is so overwhelming and seems to follow only you, can make you feel like you are the only one at the time going through a difficult moment. When I realized there was an issue I text me neighbor who is a tech wiz and he said it was not only us, but a national outage. Think about how that affects someone in business who counts on the internet for sales.

Boy what a picture of sin.  It is not only my problem, but a mankind issue.  That is why Jesus came and that is why He died.  To redeem us and let us know that we are not alone, but that as a Christian, He is with us, every moment, every hour, every day.  Lift up your eyes unto the hills, Psalm 121 tells us, " Our help comes from the Lord."  Let's close out 2018 strong for the Lord!

I love my church family.  Bro.Greg
