Sunday 10:30am Main Worship
We’ve all experienced it. To encourage others, we even quote, “Hold on my child. Joy comes in the morning… the darkest part of the night comes just before dawn.”
There is truth in that sentiment. But, while you’re in the dark; when you can’t see the proverbial hand in front of your face; those moments when you know you must take a step, but you can’t see the path to walk on…
In those moments, fear can grip your soul. Timidity may overwhelm you. Decisions may need to be checked and rechecked a million times.
Take a moment and challenge your fear; stand up to your hesitation; look squarely into the darkness and find God’s hand of purpose.
Christine Cane wrote, “sometimes when you’re in a dark place you think you’ve been buried, but actually you’ve been planted.”
You may realize you haven’t been buried; you’ve only been planted. And you will find a harvest of new seeds once you step into His light. Joy will flood your soul as you find He was preparing you for so much more – you weren’t being buried in death. You were being planted for an abundant harvest.
As the song says, “Hold on my child. Joy comes in the morning. Weeping may last through the night.”
Your dawn of fruitfulness is almost here. Your harvest is God’s gift for trusting Him in the darkness.
Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat is planted in the soil and dies, it remains alone. But its death will produce many new kernels—a plentiful harvest of new lives. Those who love their life in this world will lose it. Those who care nothing for their life in this world will keep it for eternity. Anyone who wants to serve me must follow me, because my servants must be where I am. And the Father will honor anyone who serves me.” (John 12:24-26)

May we find our purpose in following Jesus even into the dark places, Pastor Larry
