Letter and Info to Vintage Church

Vintage Church Family & Friends,

Here we go again. We are praying for God to show His mercy and grace to our area during this time. To be honest, I have felt sick about the possibility of another major hurricane hitting our region. My wife and I took the journey through Katrina and I wouldn't wish that journey on anyone. I have been blown away by the city's progress physically and spiritually over the past three years. Our church is growing and people are coming to know Christ. During this time of concern and confusion, God encouraged me through His Word. This morning I continued my journey through the One-Year Bible and God brought me PSALM 43:5:

Why are you cast down, O my soul,
and why are you in turmoil within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise Him,
my salvation and my God.

Our hope is in Christ! He is in complete control. During this time, don't focus upon the wind and waves...focus on the one who created and controls the wind and waves. Find rest and peace in Him.
