How much has your life changed in the last few months?
Do you trust that God is with you?
This week in worship we are taking a look at the story of two disciples who wound up in prison. Jesus had just commissioned them to go out and share the Good News, and they wanted to preach, heal, and love. However, everything flips upside down when they are thrown into a jail cell.
What do you do when life turns against you?

to eat today buddy?
Personally, I don’t feel like I have any right to complain about difficulties. I am blessed with my place at the church, and I am blessed with my family and friends. However, I can still become overwhelmed. Recently my kids have thrown all-out tantrums because I won’t let them crawl into the dishwasher or eat the mud on their shoes. It’s hard! However, an interesting thing will happen when I take time to reflect on these moments a few days later. If I have the opportunity, I will look back at a picture or think of a crazy time, and I can’t help but to smile. If I stop to take a breath and experience the love, I am able to experience the joy. In the Bible there are numerous stories of people who realized God was always with them, but they never realized it until long after the trial passed.
Today I hope you can take a bit of time and look backward. Take time to forgive yourself if you lost your temper… We all get lost in the moment! However, I hope we can open our hearts. May we all believe that God is always with us!
