Oh those little reminders

Today at church we had something special. We go to the chapel on post so there are 4 different services held at the Chapel. The Catholic service starts off the morning at our chapel, with the Protestant service (the one we attend) at 11 AM (we have came up with the nickname...The 11th Hour), then the COGIC service and at 3 PM, Free Gospel. Every Sunday we have AWANA I pick up the kids who go to Free Gospel that want to attend AWANA (normally between 5-10 kids). We're a very small post so we know many from each service. Today the chaplains decided to mix things up a bit and asked the Free Gospel Choir to come and sing during our offering time and their pastor to preach and preach he did!! It was truly a wonderful service. One of the things Pastor Bradley said that really stuck with me was: "Sin will make you tired, but GOD will give you strength". What a great reminder as well as conviction to the heart. Such a blessed reminder that no matter how tired I get, no matter how exhausted I am, precious father, my Savior....HE WILL give us strength...whether it's emotional strength or physical strength, he'll give it.

How blessed are we that we have a Savior who will give us exactly what we NEED.

Thanks for the comment! And yes, there were quite a few small items we decided to move ourselves, since we didn't want the movers to touch them. I am pretty sure we will be unpacking. I would rather it that way anyways!

Have a great week!! :)
