His Name Above All Names

This is the day that the Lord hath made, I will rejoice and be glad in it!” Over and over these Words of the Lord ran through my mind, I could hardly comprehend anything as the aftermath of surgery moved through my frame.  I was, however, competent to know that the Word of God rained in my heart and mind. O saints the power of His Word is so necessary in every area of our life!  I greatly admonish you, take in more of His Word, it the power of Light in the darken moments.
I am so grateful to Dr. Nancy and the entire staff or our Church family for all the things they have taken care of in my absence and to the Church family for their faithfulness!  We are truly a Church that Worships the Lord and it is seen in your faithfulness to His House. I have had minor set back, I have overcame, and on the mend. Your Prayers have sustained me and I see the Light just ahead!

This season of my life has given me some time to reflect on God’s Word, not just for a sermon, but to quietly experience His Presence in a personal way. Perhaps I can share this Nugent with you today. Along side – “This is the day the Lord hath made … came “Get Wisdom, get Understanding: Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.”  At first, I said, Yes, Lord help me Understand this! But as the days wore on, I come to know that as we “wise up” in the Word, we begin to understand the simple Truth: Understand I love you, be not afraid, I will never leave you, this affliction is for a season, etc… Looking unto Jesus brings the Joy that we need to bring us through as we endure and overcome!  Missing you sincerely and sending my Love to each one of you,  Pastor
