The 4th and Beyond

With the 4th of July celebrations over, we move into those hot, dog-days of summer so called because of certain constellations. A lot of our lives are affected, to some extent, by things in the world. Yes, God created the heavens and the earth but men have sometimes thought that it was the stars that controlled their destiny instead of the creator. How sad. We serve a living God and a Risen Lord. As you move through these hot, summer days and nights, remember that our God is always present and available to help. He loves you and desires the best for you. That is His “best” and not necessarily what you and I might think is “best” for us. Jesus came to give us the abundant life. Grab a hold of that through your faith in Jesus and your love for our God. He will never fail you. Fate does not control your daily life or your ultimate destination. Your faith, or lack thereof, in God should and does.
