Message for February 26, 2023 from Pastor Shirley

We all have a story to tell of our life.  God is still writing my story and He is still writing yours as well.  We have opportunities to share our life story so others may be encouraged by what God has done.  Holy Spirit showed me a few months ago that I have been in survival mode most of my life.  As Holy Spirit continues to reveal, there is healing.         
Many of us over a course of time have become very good at being in survival mode.  We have learned to go through the motions in life and do what we need to do to get through.  When we are “surviving” too long, we can feel the effects it has on us.  Regardless of what has caused us to live in survival mode there is hope and there is healing.  
Jesus our great Shepherd has given an invitation to those who find themselves living life in survival mode.  Matthew 11:28-29 “Come to me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke and put it on you, and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in spirit; and you will find rest. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”  The Message reads it as “Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace”.
Live life to the fullest, not just surviving but thriving!
