“A family walking together in Christ building bridges with God’s greatest love.”

Pastor John Strahle
There is a lot in preparation for Thanksgiving meals, and travel arrangements.  There is time going up in those attics to get the decorations down.  Everyone has their busy stuff they get caught up doing.  Especially, as Black Friday happens for many stores on Thursday.  

It is hard to keep the Joy of the Lord at the forefront of it all.  Christ's ask us to, "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you."(Matthew 6:33 NKJV).  We say that we get it and it is fine, but we don't always trust the truth.  Our experience tells us what we read does not always work out realistically.

Sometimes are experience in this Sin infected world is that it will not, nor will ever match the experience and joys of heaven.  It does not mean we can't have glimpses of the blessings of Heaven, but it means that our expectation for everything to be fine as a Christian is misguided.  The truth is that as followers difficult moments come, and we face them in the Strength of the Lord, and allow His Joy to sing from our very hearts in all we do through rain or shine.

We pray here at Norwalk that you have a joyful time with family and friends. We pray for traveling mercies, and we pray that those that are remembering loved ones that they be comforted.

Happy Thanksgiving!
--Pastor John
