“From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the LORD is to be praised.”
– Psalm 113:3
Time keeps on rolling! If there is one thing that is true about time, it is that it never stops. Time is not found on a stopwatch or a clock; it is found in the rising and setting of the sun. We can stop a stopwatch, we can stop a clock, but you cannot stop the sun from rising. You cannot stop kids from growing, parents from aging, or friends from moving. However, by the grace of God, you and I can make the most of today. It is possible that we spend all of our time holding on to yesterday or dreading tomorrow that we miss today.
It is hard to believe that Summer Break is over and school is here. Not only is a new school year in front of us, but a new church year is in front of us as well. I believe that God has good things in store for our church in the 2015-2016 year. Therefore, this August is a great time for you and your family to get plugged in to a Sunday School group. It is also a great time to re-engage in church worship.
2015-2016 will pass as all of the other years that preceded it, but it is here today. Make the most of this new year in front of you. The past is covered by God’s grace, the future is covered by God’s providence, and today is covered by God’s presence. Be blessed in this new church year, may God be praised!
