A Message from the WLD

Verse - Psalm 46:10
Song - In the Secret

It is early in the morning, a quiet time when I can pray and have a moment with God. But today is different and makes me even more aware of how noisy the world is and how it can take over our lives. Yesterday the house flooded. There are giant fans sitting throughout our home. Dehumidifiers are taking moisture from the air. The carpets are gone. What was once soft to the feet is now hard and rough. How did life change so quickly?

In the midst of a hectic and changing world how do we practice stillness? In the midst of life’s challenges how do we seek to be still and know the love and grace only our Heavenly Father can give us?

This is the focus of E-138, “Be Still and Know that I am God.” We are trying to respect the command that our Lord gave us to “Be Still.” It is not a suggestion, it is a command. It takes practice, perseverance and becomes a priority. But in this stillness there is sweet reward, time to think, breathe, reflect, renew, learn, share and connect.

As the sweet ladies and gentleman of E-138 prepare for the pilgrims and weekend in the midst of a hectic world, we ask you to join us in making time to “Be Still.” It may be the best moment of your day.

Please keep us in your prayers. This team is filled with prayerful servants of God. We will be praying for you

God Bless,
Cheryl Leahy
Rectora E-138
