The Pastor's Corner

  
June 28, 2015
 
Charleston Shooting
 
Our hearts are truly broken about what occurred last Wednesday night in Charleston. One question that is being asked over and over is why and how could this had happened in a church? We all regard church as a safe haven. A place where we gather for worship, prayer, direction, and healing. This was a great tragedy that has affected all of us and causes us to wonder what kind of world do we live in. In the midst of the hatred that was shown on June 17, here’s what we need to do. This is a time for us to strengthen our resolve to drive out hatred in all forms. No one should hate another person. You hate the sin, but not the person. We need to bring harmony in all segments of our society, regardless of the divisions that have been created among us. Let this act of hatred embolden us to continue to spread the good news of Jesus Christ and his love for all.

Rev. Flint

TEN GUIDELINES FROM GOD
   
Effective immediately, please be aware that there are changes YOU need to make in YOUR life. 
These changes need to be completed in order that I may fulfill My promises to you to grant you peace, joy and happiness in this life. 
I apologize for any inconvenience, but after all that I am doing, this seems very little to ask of you. Please, follow these 10 guidelines

1. QUIT WORRYING:
Life has dealt you a blow and all you do is sit and worry.
Have you forgotten that I am here to take all your burdens and carry them for you?
Or do you just enjoy fretting over every little thing that comes your way?

2. PUT IT ON MY LIST:
Something needs done or taken care of. Put it on the list. No, not YOUR list.
Put it on MY to-do-list. Let ME be the one to take care of the problem.
I can't help you until you turn it over to Me. And although My to-do-list is long,
 I am after all...God. I can take care of anything you put into My hands.
 In fact, if the truth were ever really known, I take
care of a lot of things for you that you never even realize.

3. TRUST ME:
Once you've given your burdens to Me, quit trying to take them back.
Trust in Me. Have the faith that I will take care of all your needs, your problems and your trials.
Problems with the kids? Put them on My list. Problem with finances? Put it on My list.
Problems with your emotional roller coaster? For My sake, put it on My list.
I want to help you. All you have to do is ask.

 4. LEAVE IT ALONE:
Don't wake up one morning and say, "Well, I'm feeling much stronger now, I think
I can handle it from here." Why do you think you are feeling stronger now?
It's simple. You gave Me your burdens and I'm taking care of them.
I also renew your strength and cover you in my peace.
Don't you know that if I give you these problems back,
you will be right back where you started? 
Leave them with Me and forget about them. Just let Me do my job.

5. TALK TO ME:
I want you to forget a lot of things. Forget what was making you crazy.
Forget the worry and the fretting because you know I'm in control.
But there's one thing I pray you never forget.
Please, don't forget to talk to Me - OFTEN! I love YOU!
I want to hear your voice. I want you to include Me in on the things going on in your life.
I want to hear you talk about your friends and family.
Prayer is simply you having a conversation with Me. 
I want to be your dearest friend.

6. HAVE FAITH:
I see a lot of things from up here that you  can't see from where you are.
Have faith in Me that I know what I'm doing. Trust Me; you wouldn't want the view from My eyes.
I will continue to care for you, watch over you, and meet your needs. You only have to trust Me.
Although I have a much bigger task than you, it seems as if you have so much trouble just
doing your simple part. How hard can trust be?

 7. SHARE:
You were taught to share when you were only two years old. When did you forget?
That rule still applies. Share with those who are less fortunate than you.
Share your joy with those who need encouragement.
Share your laughter with those who haven't heard any in such a long time.
Share your tears with those who have forgotten how to cry.
Share your faith with those who have none.

8. BE PATIENT:
I managed to fix it so in just one lifetime you could have so many diverse experiences.
You grow from a child to an adult, have children, change jobs many times, learn many trades,
travel to so many places, meet thousands of people, and experience so much.
How can you be so impatient then when it takes Me a little longer than you expect to handle
something on My to-do-list? Trust in My  timing, for My timing is perfect. Just
because I created the entire universe in only six days, everyone thinks I should always rush, rush, rush.

9. BE KIND:
Be kind to others, for I love them just as much as I love you. They may not dress
like you, or talk like you, or live the same way you do, but I still love you all. Please try
to get along, for My sake. I created each of you different in some way. It would be
too boring if you were all identical. Please, know I love each of your differences.

10. LOVE YOURSELF:
As much as I love you, how can you not love yourself?
You were created by me for one reason only -- to be loved, and to love
in return. I am a God of Love. Love Me. Love your neighbors. But also love yourself.
It makes My heart ache when I see you so angry with yourself when things go wrong.
You are very precious to me. Don't ever forget......
