“For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.” – 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 esv
I was greeting people as they came into church on Sunday and I met a man I knew and asked him how he was doing. his response was not new or different, but it did take me aback and cause me to just listen and take stock in what is happening nowadays.
‘Hey Sir, how are you doing?’
‘Hey Scott, I am doing amazing…I am just feeling so blessed in life right now and so yeah…things are going good.’
‘Things are good? Family?’
‘Yep, I am feeling blessed in this season of life!’
Then he just starting talking about how God has opened His eyes to all the wonderful things and good things that God is doing and how life could be different and yet in this ‘Season’ of life he is feeling unbelievably blessed.
I am writing this on Tuesday, April 6th and in a couple of hours I will be going to the funeral of Adelia Mae Dundas. Today is not an easy day and for the Dundas family it is only a day that the Lord can sustain them through.
Going through a ‘Season’
What does it mean to go through a season?
Sometimes we have wonderful seasons of blessings and sometimes we go through difficult seasons of frustration and feeling dry like we are going through a desert. We understand that there are good times and also bad times in life. sometimes we assume that this does not happen in our faith. It does happen more often then we think and honestly many of these are based on our own perspective and mood.
What kicks us out of our difficult times or makes us notice the good moments?sa We open our eyes in the difficult moments and realize that we are blessed. That no matter what we have happening we can care and love others going through far worse and we can be that joy to others and that allows us to know that this season, however long it lasts, will be done. However, He is always good.
We have two large things coming up this spring and summer. We have a MASSIVE spring retreat coming up the weekend of April 23-25 and we have 40 students coming, but would love some more. You can register your student at faithchurchaustin.org/students.
Our High School students are planning on going to Guatemala this July and we have applications for any student that is interested in coming on the trip. We do have an informational meeting if you are interested in coming, this Sunday at noon. If you are interested in coming please let me know because I don’t have many attending.
Thank you for trust in our ministry.
I am asking you a question constantly this year: Who is God putting in your life to Love Sacrificially
