A Message from the "R"

Delight Yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart - Psalm 37:4

This Psalm speaks to us about many important things. The first command in Psalm 37 is “do not fret”. This is followed by “trust in the Lord.” Both of these commands surround our theme of “Delight Yourself in the Lord”. We know that as part of the teaming process, we have to put aside our worries and focus on the reason that we are here – we are called by God to be witnesses to His word. We have to put our complete trust in Him so that we can approach the weekend with a clean heart and mind. Trusting in God will enable us to hear the still small voice while we serve the pilgrims on the mountain. Verse 7 of Psalm 37 tells us to “be still before the Lord, and wait patiently for him”. Sometimes this is difficult to do – especially when our excitement soars and anticipation is heavy on our hearts. But – through our trust, our patience, our love and our commitment, the team of E-150 will be delighting to serve our Lord in September.
