Fall approaches and with all of the festivals abounding around us, we are reminded to celebrate and be grateful in all things. This morning Dr. Bridges’ message was “I’ve God So Many Reasons to Thank God” (Psalms 40:1-5). Are you placing your trust in the blessings or in the One who blesses? If we purposefully hold back on our tithes and our service to Him, we are being ungrateful and disobedient like spoiled children. Worship the Creator… not that which has been created! Things and people come and go… if we truly want to walk into the full abundance that He has for us, we must do our best to submit to all of God’s instructions and His glorious plans for us. 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!
