The Pastor’s Garage May 6th, 2021

So just wanted to start off and let you all know (as so many of you have
been praying) that Ken is at home and recovering. We are so thankful for
all your prayers and so thankful for what God has done in his life. If you
think of him just keep praying that he will continue on this road to 100%

As I mentioned in an email yesterday, we will be back in the building this
weekend. One service from 9-10 am which will be more focused on prayer,
sharing, fellowship and encouragement. Another service from 10:30-11:30,
which will include worship and a sermon and which will be streamed live to
facebook. Both services require registration at

We will be celebrating communion at these services and I plan on sharing
from Psalm 20. I would encourage you to read it ahead of time. I have read
it several times this week and have felt this sense of courage and strength
come over me as I have.

Psalm 46:10 states “Be still and know that I am God.”

Have you been still enough? And that doesn’t mean just having nothing to
do. We’ve all had a lot less to do these days, but that’s not necessarily
being still. Have you quieted your mind? Have you turned off distractions?
Have you paused the news and the noise and been truly still? Only when we
do that can we know that he is God. Only when we do that can we receive a
revelation of who he is or perhaps be reminded that HE IS GOD and we… are

There are many distractions. Many things to be busy about. Many things
which vie for our attention. Many things to worry and fret over but,

God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Come and see what the Lord has done,
the desolations he has brought on the earth.
He makes wars cease
to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
he burns the shields[d] with fire.
He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”

The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress ~ Psalm 46.
