Still a lot of heavy stuff ongoing within the PAX and within the community. Including the local triple homicide that occurred yesterday morning.
I just wanted to remind the PAX to lean into where our help comes from, where our hope is. As I am a music and song person, I shared another set of lyrics from a newer song by Chris Renzema called Just As Good where the main point of the song is to remember that God is good, just as good as when we first experienced Him.
And I will build an altar
And stack it stone by stone
‘Cause every Ebenezer says I’ve never been alone
My faith will surely falter
But that don’t change what You’ve done
‘Cause every Ebenezer points to where my help comes from
Always remember we are never alone (we have each other and God on our side) and where our help comes from.
