A Message from Intern Pastor Greg Pavek:

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1

What a sobering reminder this week brought us of how fast life can change. With the accidents in Cottonwood all the way to the weather, life is so unpredictable. Just 2 weeks ago we had record temps approaching 90 degrees and now snow covers the tips of the grass. One day we are holding close those dear to us and the next, they may be gone. Truly we are not in control. God, however, is in control of the seasons of life. In Daniel chapter 2 it says, “He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.” This truth can drive us into anxiety, depression, fear, or any other type of emotion. Or it can drive us into the arms of our Heavenly Father. The fact that we are not in control can actually bring peace. Peace that comes from the faithfulness of the one who has things under control. Our job is not to hold things together but to cling to the one who does. This is necessary in all of life’s seasons. The good and the bad, the joyful and grieving along with the sunny and the snowy. 2 timothy 4:2 – “Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.”
