Greetings Oak Hill,
It’s almost hard to believe that we are already nearing the end of April. Time has been funny to keep track of in these shelter-in-place days that we are living in and so some days feel faster while others seem to drag on. Even amidst all of these changes and the new rhythm that we are experiencing, I hope that you have found some opportunities to hone in on some of the positives that have been in place during these unique days. Perhaps this has been a welcome change in what normally would have been a rapid pace that a normal week would throw at you. Perhaps you are enjoying the extra family time or had some new opportunity to tackle a house or yard project that you had been putting off. Perhaps you have found some time to intentionally connect with a friend or family member that you had not talked to in a while. Perhaps you have been able to take some time to allow God to speak to you and teach you about your continued need for and reliance upon Him.
It is in moments like this that we are brought to a renewed understanding that He is in control, that He is able, and that He is at work. This week we will wrap up our sermon series that has been walking us through and highlighting the immense character and nature of who God is and what He does. We have seen His reliability when things get tough, His dependability that provides us assurance in the challenging times, and His love and care for us to meet our needs as we walk in step with Him. I hope you have been as blessed as much as I have to get to walk through these reminders and many more as we have been in God’s Word together this past month. The power and assurance that God’s Word brings to us gives us perspective and trust as we navigate these days and weeks ahead together.
