Message for December 12,2021 from Pastor Shirley

The last few weeks we have been heartbroken and grieved with the passing of Clifton Coulter, Jim Childs and Danny McClister.  Then we received the news Friday of the passing of our dear Sister Sheryl Jackson.  Some of you in our New Life family have experienced the loss of  family members recently. 
Friends are faithful to be there with words of encouragement and for that we are thankful.  Families are drawn closer as they gather around to share memories of their loved one. 
When people experience those times of losing loved ones there are so many things that we can turn to just to get through and understand the whys.  When those things are temporal we find ourselves still asking the whys.  The only true comfort is finding solace in the Word and allowing those truths to fill your heart.  
In my walk with God I have found that when my mind cannot understand and I am tempted to ask the whys I always go to the Word.  Nothing has brought comfort and peace to my heart and soul like God’s precious Word.  Our Sovereign God sees the bigger picture and I have come to know that He is bringing about His story of redemption through circumstances and every situation in our lives.  
God’s glory is all around me!  His wraparound presence is all I need, for the Lord is my Savior, my hero, and my life- strength.  Trust only in God every moment!  Tell him all your troubles and pour out your heart-longings to him.  Believe me when I tell you—he will help you! 
Pause in his presence!  Psalm 62:7-7 Passion Bible
