Elder's Meditation by Noel Montgomery

Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you,
because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”

Matthew 11:28-30

With so much going on in today's world, we take on more stress and anxiety than ever before. While we should always perform our best and make a difference where we can, there are many areas where we don't have control. Instead, leave those worries to God and put all of your trust in Him. Make a choice today to trust God with all your might and He will answer with peace and love that you can pass on to your family, friends and anyone who crosses your path.

We as Disciples of Christ have to be the example of peace, love, joy, patience and self -control. Honestly, I see many of us who strive to be these gifts in so many ways routinely. What a blessing to be a part of a church family that practices what God needs us to be in this world of so much hate and demise.

Be blessed and safe and let God lead your path. Joshua 1:9 says “Don’t be afraid or discouraged, be strong and courageous for the Lord your God is always with you.”
