God is Still Working!

God is Still Working!

As we continue to wade through this uncharted territory of COVID-19, it may seem like each day brings more questions than answers. We quietly go about our days in a modified state of existence, watching events cancelled, more restrictions implemented, states of emergencies declared, as parents set up homeschool classrooms at their kitchen tables. Our friends and loved ones are losing jobs, others are getting sick and many others are succumbing to this virus around the world.  

Where is God through all of this?

Not only is God still present, he is still working on our behalf! Think back to the time when the Israelites were ready to give up hope, certain they were going to die as Pharaoh and his mighty army overtook them at the Red Sea. Then God showed up in all his glory and led them on dry land to the other side so that God "will get glory over Pharaoh, his chariots, and his horsemen." (Exodus 14:18 ESV)

God is still working on our behalf even when it looks impossible to our finite minds. We serve the Almighty God who fights for us and all we have to do is be silent. Silent in prayer and steadfast in our faith. (Ref: Exodus 14:14 ESV)

Let us hold onto the promise that God is working all things out as we are diligently and faithfully waiting on him in prayer and intentionally drawing closer to him. 

Enjoy this week's worship song: "Yes I WIll" by Vertical Worship.

Thanks team. Great song!

God is Still Present!

God is Still Present!

In these unprecedented and uncertain times, when we must practice social distancing while craving community, be encouraged to remain steadfast in the Hope that is Jesus. As Christians, we do not worry as the world does; rather, we hold onto our anchor and lean on each other.  

That is what we hope to do as a community of sisters during these times - offer encouragement and support. Here are some practical ways we encourage you to stay connected as we "virtually" gather under the canopy of God's faithfulness:

  • Keep in touch with one another via text messages, social media, emails, and phone calls.
  • Use this time to draw closer to God through increased time in prayer and worship. 
  • As you are able, join the AWC Daily Evening Zoom Prayer Meetings (Online) from 7:30pm - 8:30pm.
  • Consider doing an in-depth study of a book of the Bible and virtually talk it over with a friend.
  • Think about journaling your thoughts and prayers during this time and then anticipate & record how God answers them.

Know that we will get through this together. May this be the time when we look more like Jesus to a world that is in desperate need of him.

Let this worship song, "With You" by Elevation Worship encourage you today.
