Happy Birthday Minister!

Happy Birthday to our Minister Rev Morrison. We trust and pray he has a wonderful day with his family and many many more. Thank You for leading our congregation. God Bless. From all the members

O Lord,
Life passes by swiftly. Events that a few years ago kept me totally preoccupied have now become vague memories; conflicts that a few months ago seemed so crucial in my life now seem futile and hardly worth the energy; inner turmoil that robbed me of my sleep only a few weeks ago has now become a strange emotion of the past; books that filled me with amazement a few days ago now do not seem as important; thoughts that kept my mind captive only a few hours ago have now lost their power and have been replaced by others. . . .

Why am I continuously trapped in this sense of urgency and emergency?
Why do I not see that you are eternal, that your kingdom lasts forever, and that for you a thousand years are like one day?

O Lord, let me enter into your presence and there taste the eternal, timeless, everlasting love with which you invite me to let go of my time-bound anxieties, fears, preoccupations, and worries. . . .

Lord, teach me your ways and give me the courage to follow them.
Amen.
