Hello Sawgrass Family,
I write this note from high above the hustle and bustle of New York City streets. It’s a time of meditating on the verses from our By Faith sermon series, while reflecting on all that I saw today. There was hopelessness and sadness among the bustling traffic and bold lights of Times Square and yet God’s goodness was still breaking through like a ray of sunlight in a dark sky.
He was present with the father who was helping his young son deliver food to the homeless man everyone else was ignoring. He was present in the kindness to help another cross the street. He was present in the friendly smiles and conversations of strangers. He is always there, waiting for us to seek Him out.
Praying Hebrews 11:6 for each of you this week. Praying that you see Jesus working in you and through you. As you seek God throughout your week and discover ways to love in a way that matters, may our Father reward you with glimpses of Himself. May you receive the peace and wisdom of knowing that you are His and in His will.
“Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”-Hebrews 11:6
