Well, we survived Thanksgiving turkey and the hustle and bustle of Christmas. We're now in the final days of the year and ready to enter 2017. I am grateful for the countless holiday messages sent to me via text, email and social media from my friends, family and even those I have never met. You blessed me with your words and I regret not being able to personally reply to each and every one of you. Please forgive me and know that I love you dearly!
I have to say, I have been overwhelmed by how God has blessed me, my family and our church this year. In the latter part of 2015, God revealed to me that 2016 would be a GAME CHANGER. Boy, was it ever! From Heart Weekend with Dr. Joyce Haddon, to a REFUGE Conference not only in Salem but in Detroit, Michigan to incredible additions to our CLC family with The Church from North Salem (Now part of CLC Salem) and A Place of Grace Church in Wilsonville (Now CLC Wilsonville). We also extended our CLC reach even further with Evangelist Ginny & Reid...
Congratulations to President Elect Donald Trump. You are in our prayers daily.
It's no secret that many have been troubled greatly during this election process. But this one thing I want to share.
Regardless of the outcome of this election, our mission is the same. Our calling is the same. Our purpose for living is the same. So don't waiver. And when you wake in the upcoming mornings, pray like you always pray. Get in the Word like you always get in the Word. And, love on people like Jesus loved on people, the same way you did yesterday, the day before and the weeks and months before.
God needs you to walk in your anointing, not your pride or your anger after the results of this election. If anything, be stronger in your FAITH, be stronger in your PRAYER time, be stronger in your WORSHIP. And whatever you do, do NOT let the enemy use your reaction to further his agenda. I repeat - DO NOT let the enemy use your reaction to further his agenda.
e serve a sovereign God and HIS agenda is still...
