Hey there! Its Pastor Andrew. If I was asked in January how I planned to spend the first six months of my year, I would not have guessed it would look like how it has played out! I’m sure I’m not alone.
I wanted to simply encourage you, whether you’re a parent or a student reading this, that God is still with you and wants to continue to meet with you. In fact, we have been hearing many testimonies from students and families of how God has been doing a renewal in their lives during this time. Perhaps, the renewal so many of us have been praying into to see is actually happening. Just happening in a way no one could have ever imagined or predicted – sounds like God’s work to me!
Whether you are having a great week, an okay week, or a week that is making you question your sanity out loud to yourself multiple times in a day, know that I am cheering you on and praying Paul’s words in Ephesians 3:16-21.
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
I am here to pray with you, listen to you, and offer whatever help I can. So if you’re having a less than sublime week, please do not hesitate to reach out.
– P. A
