February 21, 2012

I pray this message finds all of you abounding in the blessings of God. It is truly amazing at what God is doing in our midst. It is so awesome to have heard about the vision God has for us here at TAP for so many years and now we are all a part of it coming to pass! Thank God we stayed and obeyed!

Starting the new church, RLC, has been probably the hardest things that Laura Leigh and I have ever done. The hardest thing to deal with was not being here at TAP like we were before. I believe the people here at this church are some of the best people in the world. You have taken care of my family and myself and we have been one big family together. I would have been so happy to have stayed right here for the rest of my life and Pastor this church, TAP. God had other plans.

The number one thing that should be in the heart of every Christian is to please God. This must override what you and I want to do. This is what has taken us back to Marion to start a church. He has blessed us with an awesome church family there is well. It has been so rewarding to watch people soaking up God's word. Many lives have been changed in such a short time, including mine. It seems as if though trusting God continually takes on a brand new meaning the more you step out and do it.

We must learn that it is not about how we feel or just what we desire. Our desire needs to be God's desire. We also should not be surprised as we step out and Satan tries to stop God's plan. He does not want you obeying God and accomplishing God's will. Do not allow opposition to stop you! Know that God is with you every step of the way and will see you through!

The best is yet to come!

Until next time,

Pastor J
