I’m so pumped – spring is here. Spring is full of new life and nice weather. Time to start grilling!
Have you grilled yet? I have… three times. But I will be honest, the results have been mixed. The first time, it was burgers on the grill. I couldn’t wait, and neither could the fire. We had pizza that night. Next time, it was wings. I was so keyed. They were just starting to smell good, but as I turned them, I noticed that the flame went out. We were out of propane. Really?
Then last night, I finally hit a home run with various kinds of sausages on the grill!
Sometimes life is difficult, and sometimes life is pretty easy. But all the time God’s presence is our company, his power is our strength, his knowledge is our wisdom, his justice is our protection, his eternal promise is our hope, his mercy is our safety, and his love is our life.
Go ahead, Taste and see that the Lord is good. (Psalm 34:8)
I look forward to seeing you in person at 9:00 or 10:30am at Victory or online.
Sharing Christ’s Love and Victory,
CURRENT SERIES – WHAT IF…
