Weekly Words - 5/3/17

Dear FBCD Family & Friends:

"We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed...” 2 Corinthians 4:8

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.”
― Helen Keller

The above words resonate within my soul this week. Sometimes life seems overwhelming. I wonder what life is like for you today?

If you’re overwhelmed. Be encouraged. Remember the ancient words of scripture above. There is always a way forward. And...remember the words spoken by Hellen Keller, “When one door of happiness closes, another opens..."

I’m believing these words to be true for me this week. I invite you to claim them as yours too.

Know you’re in my thoughts and prayers. If you haven’t planned yet, plan to be at FBCD for service this Sunday. It will be good for you and for everyone else present too. Your life makes a difference.
