  • 2018 graduates, we congratulate you!  Certainly you have worked hard to achieve this honor, but no one can rest on his/her laurels. “Commencement” means “a beginning or start, launch, kickoff.” 

    As you conclude your high school years and begin a new chapter in your life, I want to pose this question to you as I would also ask my grandson who is a high school graduate:  “What is in your heart?”  Men and women are made by the things which are in their hearts. 

  • I get too busy for God. I get too self-focused away from God. I forget God in many moments of my day. Do you struggle this way too? We don’t reflect as often or deeply as to how wonderful He truly is.

    God reminded me this week in Psalm 139 of how incredibly awesome He is. Maybe this will help you as it as helped me.

    Our God Is Personal! He cares about the details of our days. He knows us inside and out. He watches us as a loving Father. He listens to our cries and hurts. He holds us, protects us, and comforts us with His strong arms.
