A Note From Pastor Georgette

June is upon us and Jim & I are reveling in the joy of “Grandma/Grandpa Camp. 2016 is the 5th anniversary of “Camp” with our youngest grandchildren at the Gaston house. We plan, prepare and ENJOY every minute of it!  Aahhh… summer! Warm days, sun, fun, vacation, relaxation.

For many, summer is a time we intentionally take a step back from normal routine to renew our lives with family and friends. A shift from every day responsibilities to truly rest and allow ourselves to be refreshed. For others, summer is a time of “coming home”. Those who’ve escaped Ohio’s wintry blast, now back home from the blasting heat of summer in warmer climates.

What a blessing to have the freedom to come and go! What a blessing to have the resources to “vacate”, “stay-cate” and sometimes simply “vegetate”. As we shift, slow down to enjoy the blessings of life’s richness this summer, my prayer is that we slow down enough to seek God’s face. A very wise teacher once told me, “we are human beings, not human doings.” What a relief that “good news” has been to my Hyper-Martha personality! In the years that have followed, I’ve learned that being WITH God, is more important than doing FOR God. Redirecting my energy toward God, choosing intentional time for rest, devotion and prayer fuels my passion to serve God more fully.

Are you feeling worn out, overwhelmed with your “to do” list? Is your worship, prayer life, service to Christ’s kingdom more obligation than exuberance? If so, take a step back from your normal routine. Choose intentional time for rest, devotion and prayer. Invite God to speak his heart to you AND for your service to Christ’s kingdom in the Ohio Valley and beyond. This summer, come home to Jesus!
