Something I Read Lately

I’ve prayed this prayer many times on many different occasions. Never once has God answered my prayer by changing my circumstances, i.e. making my life easier, taking away my difficulties, instantly transporting me to the other side of my trials. What He has done is reminded me ever so subtly that He will be with me as He always has during my dark road.

Peace isn’t always  a feeling of contentment. Sometimes, the butterflies remain but so does the promise that God won’t forsake me. For me, a feeling of peace doesn’t always mean peace, nor does a lack of it indicate its absence. Try and work that one out and see if it makes sense.

Christ is Our Foundation

This Sunday the theme is “Christ is Our Foundation”, which is very appropriate for the second post of this blog.  Christ is our foundation and He taught us to care for others and help each other on our journey with God.  When we are going through tough times, we can be assured that God is with us and has our best interests at heart and if our burdens are too much to carry, God provides us a place (church) and people who can help us or at least give us a hug :).

The main scripture for this week is I Corinthians 3:10-11.  Paul discusses that God built a foundation and now we are building on it.  We need to be careful though because we can get distracted and forget that Christ is the foundation.  When we do that, we tend to rely on material things that in the long run will not be good for us so let’s keep our eyes focused on Christ and this will help us through all the times of our lives whether they be easy or difficult.

May God bless you as you continue on your journey with Him.

Grow in God

Welcome to the El Cajon Community of Christ Blog!  If you are new to the Community of Christ, Welcome.  Feel free to explore http://www.cofchrist.org to learn more about us or you can email me at cofchristelcajon@gmail.com.  If you are familiar with Community of Christ, welcome!  Everyone is welcome here and I would love your feedback as I begin this blog.  Let me know what you would like to talk about or what you would like to see here.

Last Sunday our theme was Grow in God and the theme came from I Corinthians where Paul is telling us that we can plant the seed and someone can water it, but it’s God that makes it live and grow.  So the idea of this blog is to help God help others to grow in their relationship with him.

I look forward to chatting with all of you and hope we can all grow with God together!

Shalom,

Evelyn Smith
