I’m Just Trying to Please God
What a day! Oh what a day! Lord, just show us the way! Pastor Bridges shared a Word in “I’m Just Trying to Please God” (Proverbs 16:1-7). God made everything for Him, including us. Everything belongs to him. As we live, we can get distracted and off track by trying to please people around us when they don’t have the power to do anything for you without God. Be careful not to get sucked in to the grips of parasites around you, and strive to be more like the Levites in serving God by taking care of what is His – His people and His world. When you work to please God, He will take care of you and handle anyone who rises up against you. Who are you really trying to please? If you don’t have a church home, we welcome you to join us this Sunday at 10am to see for yourself what God can do!
