The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid.

On Sunday in our meeting Pastor gave  this beautiful word. It really hit home this morning as I was walking and a Shirley Caesar song came on and in normal Shirley fashion, she was telling a story. She told the story about a man who had been 50 years serving the Lord, and how he still came to service with his cane, weary, and sometimes barely making it but he came .The point of the story was he made his journey, step by step. But, what came to my mind was my Pastor, who has accomplished that same achievement.

This Year, February 28, 2014 he celebrated 50 years serving Christ. He is 75 years old and no cane, no walking stick, his eyes are not dim, neither is his face abase, he's not weary, nor is he worn, and he's yet going strong...50+ years strong serving the Lord!!! He has and continues to endure in Christ strength. He acknowledges  God in all endeavors.  He puts Christ first in everything.

It came clear to me this morning that truly I can do all things thru Christ which strengthens me. I must make it a habit of acknowledging him in all things. If I acknowledge him in the calm surely he will be standing waiting on my call in the storm!!!

Love you all!! Let Christ be your strength today!!!
