My friend faithfully comes alongside of me to take on some of my ministry tasks, to help me to do what I’m called to do, and to encourage me. So. Last night we went to Oak View Acres in Canby for the wedding rehearsal. I did not need to pay attention to a list of details because my friend did, giving me the opportunity to focus on the needs of the couple, family, and their friends. The help made me stronger.
There was a time that I tried to do everything on my own; however, I’ve repeatedly learned we need God and one another to live strong. It’s wisdom:
Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken (Ecclesiastes 4:12, NIV).
To live strong is to be in an active, ongoing, participating, and healthy relationship with God and one another.
- To live strong is to live well.
- To live strong is a daily decision.
- To live strong is a blessing, never to be taken for granted but to be grateful and humbled for the opportunity.
Hope to see you at South Salem Nazarene (1661 Boone Rd SE Salem, OR 97306) this Sunday at 10:45 AM where I will be sharing a message about how to live well.
- Live Strong.
- Worship, meditate, and pray in the FIRST FIFTEEN MINUTES of the day.
- Focus on your God-given assignment, doing only what matters.
- Remember to pray for our brothers and sisters who are suffering and for those who are in spiritual darkness.
The view of the wedding site gives me perspective of the stunning world we live in.
