Good morning.


As we reflect on your testimonies, we have been made aware of some of the difficulties 2022 brought with it for so many folk.


When the Israelites were faced by the Red Sea in front of them and Pharaoh's pursuing army behind them, their hearts filled with panic, Moses tells them, "Be still." Talk about angst!


When we look at the end of the story, we realize that if the Israelites had not done what Moses told them, they probably would have made the situation much worse. But Moses understood that it was best to trust in God and not in his own knowledge or power.


"Being still" requires letting go of all control of a situation and trusting God to handle it. When we try to take control of a painful situation, our attempts to manipulate and force change are most likely going to cause more problems. It may feel uncomfortable to let go, and it may not make sense at the moment, but God knows better than we do.


As we look ahead to 2023, we can still trust that God knows what He’s doing.


“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord . (Isaiah 55:8)


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
